Shower Screens Repairs
Traditional shower doors are made of glass set in a metal frame. Shower screens on the other hand are only made of glass, with no metal frame. Often, shower screens don’t even feature doors, making them a top choice for maximizing space.
Because shower screens are simply panes of glass, they have many advantages. For one, they’re easier to clean. As mentioned above, the lack of a door makes them a great space saving option, while the minimalist look of the frameless glass opens up smaller spaces and lets in plenty of light.
A more contemporary design element, shower screens are associated with modern and newer construction homes. In interior design, shower screens are seen as a key element of a luxurious bathroom remodel. Designers just aren’t choosing traditional style shower doors anymore.
And neither are homebuyers. Installing shower screens is one of the quickest ways to update your bathroom if you’re looking to sell anytime soon.
The installation of shower screens does require more care than traditional shower doors. The glass does not rely on a metal frame to stay in place. This means that the glass must be precisely and expertly cut to ensure that it fits together perfectly. The glass must also be cut to the right thickness or else you risk cracks and shattering.
If your glass isn’t the correct thickness, adding hardware, like a shower rack, could ruin it. On the other hand, precisely designed and installed shower screens could last a lifetime.
Should you ever find a crack or chip in your shower screens, you should contact us at Glass Works Australia immediately. A small problem may not be that costly or time consuming to fix, but even a small issue could become a big one if ignored or improperly repaired.
As shower screens become more popular and desirable in homes, many glass repair services have started installing and repairing shower screens, but that doesn’t make them experts. If you don’t go with a professional, you could be in for costly repairs, or worse, unskilled repairs that end up costing you more later down the line.

Our policy is to treat your home like our own, and we would never leave shattered glass around our kids.
Just because a business offers a service, doesn’t mean that they’re experts. We’ve been repairing glass for decades, but don’t take our word for it. Check out our testimonials page for more information.
