 What thickness of glass do you recommend? 

    There are 3 standard thicknesses for shower doors; 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". Call us to discuss what thickness is most appropriate for your shower. 

Do you recommend the glass be tempered? 

    Yes, absolutely! Once you temper a piece of glass it instantaneously becomes 4-5 stronger. Another benefit of tempered glass is that if one day it ever breaks, instead of braking into large shards, it breaks into small pieces causing much less damage and posing less of a danger. The process that the glass goes through to become tempered is extreme heating and rapid cooling. 

 What do you do to keep my shower from leaking? 

    In order to keep your shower door from leaking, you must first take into consideration why shower doors leak. In most cases shower doors leaks from failure to pitch the saddle inwards. The idea is that once the water from your shower head hits the glass it runs down to the bottom of the glass, once it hits the saddle it only has two ways to go; out or into the shower area. If the saddle is pitched in the right direction the water will go into its right place which is the inside of the shower. We recommend the pitch to be 5 degrees in-wards. The second reason why a shower door might leak is because you shower head is pointed directly in between glass seams. Keep in mind that all hinges have moving parts which has small spaces to allow movement. By changing the direction of water flow away from such areas it will greatly increase the likelihood of you shower door not leaking.
