What Is the Difference Between Frameless & Framed Glass Showers?
Aside from the difference made obvious by the names of these styles, there are several variations between frameless and framed glass showers that are important to take into account when deciding what you’d like to have in your bathroom.
Pros of a Frameless Shower:
Thick glass eliminates the need for metal supports
Easier to clean
Less mold and mildew buildup
Pros of a Framed Shower:
Less likely to leak
Variety of styles to choose from
Why Are Frameless Shower Doors More Expensive?
While frameless shower doors are growing in popularity, especially for modern bathrooms, the initial installation cost is higher when compared to framed showers. This is due to the special hardware required to create the seamless look that makes the style so appealing. Similarly, the glass necessary for frameless showers is a thicker tempered glass than the type used for their framed counterparts.
While frameless shower doors tend to be more expensive to install, the many pros listed above combined with the stylish minimalistic design make them a good choice for anyone looking to update their bathroom’s look and functionality. At American Eagle Glass, we can work with you to ensure that your vision is realized with the highest quality materials and workmanship all while staying within your budget.
