Are you thinking of getting custom frameless shower doors? We at Dixie Shower Doors understand how soothing it can be to take a shower surrounded by glass doors of your choice and liking. However, before designing and installing your custom shower glass, there are specific questions that you should ask your contractor and inquire about before you proceed towards building your custom-built shower door.

For your ease, we have picked out the seven most important questions you should ask so you can go into the project with sufficient knowledge about customized shower glass.


What kind of doors do you want?

You need to assess what kind of door you are looking for. This can be more challenging than it seems because of the wide variety of available doors. You can choose anything from sliding doors to pivot doors that swing outwards, framed or semi-framed doors, bifold doors, frameless doors, partial or tub enclosure, or even tub enclosure.


Do you have enough space?

Now that you have figured out the kind of door you want, you need to see if you have ample space for it or not. You should also consider if the space you have will allow you to have a corner shower, an alcove shower, or another type of shower. The glass door you get will be severely impacted by the amount of space you have in your bathroom.


What does the shower area consist of?

This question pertains to whether your doors are being built for a place that consists of just a shower, a tub, or both. If your shower area has both, we suggest you opt for sliding doors since they give a more luxurious experience. For just showers, pivot doors are a great idea. If you want a more modern touch, we suggest you go for partial enclosures.


What features do you want?

When designing your door, you need to prioritize the features that are most important to you. Is the quality and type of glass more critical than the type of door? Or is it the other way around? The people you hire for the job can also help you prioritize the more relevant features for your shower area.


How much will it cost?

Once the central part is done, you need to get down to budgeting. Whoever you hire for the job will give you a better idea of how much the customized glass doors can cost you. Most companies will be willing to provide you with a free quote.


The period required

Another important thing to keep in mind is to estimate how long the installation and building process will take. This assessment will require you to see how much time you need to invest daily and how many days it will take. How many people have to be involved?


How long does the installation process take? 

Lastly, you will have to see how much time it will take for the glass door to be installed once the process has been completed. All of these questions are essential in determining how you should process the process.
