Can You Replace Just a Shower Door?
Shower replacements are becoming more and more popular, especially as walk-in showers are known for having a sleek, modern appeal that can improve the look of any bathroom. As a prominent feature of your shower system and a highly visible aspect of your bathroom, your shower door can be one of its most—or least—attractive features. Is your shower door looking a little worse for wear? That’s not necessarily surprising. Here’s why:
A bathroom is a high-moisture area, and the intense humidity combined with the rigors of daily use can wreak havoc on its components and fixtures. Even if you have a high-quality shower door, its glass may become clouded or discolored by mold, mildew, soap scum, or hard-water mineral buildup over time. This can happen even if you regularly take the extra time and steps to keep your shower clean. Many of these problems—as well as others, such as cracks, chips, and rusted metal framing—are difficult to prevent. However, they can be easily remedied with a shower replacement. And if you are happy with the rest of your shower, you can replace just the door if you want to.
Signs It’s Time for a New Shower Door Installation
You may need to replace your glass shower door if it:
- No longer opens smoothly or closes firmly
- Has discolored, chipped, or cracked glass (this is a safety issue, because the door may lose structural integrity and shatter)
- Has a rusty or corroded frame
- Leaks (this is another safety issue since slippery, wet floors are the No. 1 cause of household accidents)
- Has an outdated appearance or design that you simply don’t care for
If your goal is to replace just a single pane or component of your shower door, you may want to contact the manufacturer to see if it is possible to source replacement parts. However, replacement shower door parts are not always easy to come by. Homeowners often try to handle this part themselves by going to a big box store to select a new shower door, but shipping or transporting the piece only adds extra cost and stress. Plus, the installation can be tricky. For these reasons, it’s best to work with an expert.
