For years, frameless shower enclosures were seen as only accessible for high-end homes or nice hotels. In recent years, frameless showers have become far more accessible to the general public and they are growing in popularity. However, there are still lingering myths about frameless shower enclosures that prevent people from considering them for their homes. In today’s blog post, Ryan’s all-glass will debunk three common myths about frameless showers.
1. They Are Too Expensive
Frameless showers are typically more expensive than framed showers or shower-tub enclosures, but it is a myth that they are out of people’s price range. The shower enclosure itself is a bit more expensive, but a frameless enclosure is actually more cost-effective because it will add to the value of your home. If you sell your home, your frameless shower enclosure will surely be a feature that you will want to show off to potential buyers. While the enclosure itself might be a tad more expensive, it is not a budget breaker.
2. They Are Easily Damaged
One concern that comes with frameless shower enclosures is that they will either shatter or be difficult to maintain. Both of those concerns are not legitimate. Frameless showers use thick safety glass, making them stronger against potential cracks as well as preventing them from shattering. If your frameless shower is installed correctly by a professional, the chances of it shattering are slim to none. They are also easier to maintain than framed showers as they don’t have metal for mold and mildew to grow on.
3. They Are Leaky
As noted previously, the threat of leaks only comes when your frameless shower enclosure is installed incorrectly. As long as you have a professional glass company like Ryan’s all-glass install your frameless shower enclosure, you shouldn’t have to worry about leaks. If your shower is installed correctly, it will be sealed correctly, and it will have the right drainage considerations. It will also be built with the correct structural elements that prevent leakage. Fear of leaks as natural with any shower enclosure, but in reality, proper installation will prevent these leaks.
