Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless showers and shower doors stand out from other shower enclosure types both in beauty and quality. By using heavy glass often with thicknesses from 3/8" to 1/2" tempered glass, these frameless showers don't need additional support such as framing which allows a sleek, stylish look that's sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone who sees it.
At Ocean Glass, we work with some of the finest shower glass and hardware manufacturers to be able to offer a wide variety of styling options to help your frameless shower be unique while still matching the other decor in your bathroom. We also make it easy to have your frameless shower installed during remodeling and new construction by having satellite locations in Billerica, Boston, Peabody and Reading. We are frameless shower door and enclosure experts and take pride in helping you design the shower of your dreams.
Why Are They Called Frameless Showers?
What's in a name? The name "Frameless Shower" is quite a nice fit for these types of showers because the sides and doors of the shower don't need to be supported by a metal frame. These showers and shower doors are made from thick, tempered glass which completely eliminates the need for metal framing. Frameless shower technology allows you to add elegance to a bathroom with these sheik designs while leaving the room feeling open and bright.
Frameless Shower Door Pricing
As with most construction projects, pricing out a frameless shower accurately can be difficult without blueprints of the project. With the multiple styles of shower enclosure and types of door openings available the cost to install a frameless shower can vary greatly. Although these units almost always have a higher initial cost than semi-frameless and framed showers, the value that these units can add to your home can hold a lot of weight when your home is appraised or when you go to sell. For example, according to a cost vs. value study done in 2010 by Remodeling Magazine, the national average rate of return is 64.1% which means if you spend $5,000 on a bathroom upgrade, you can recoup on average $3,205 when you sell your home.
