When to Replace Your Shower Door

How does your shower door look? Does it work the way it’s supposed to? Is it just dirty, or does it need to be replaced?

The shower door is one of the most important parts of your bathroom, so if you’re having any kind of problem, it’s a good idea to call professionals right away.

Common signs that indicate you may need a new shower door are:

  • The framing is corroding or has rust
  • The door doesn’t close all the way
  • The door doesn’t fit properly
  • The glass is discolored or cracked
  • You have to constantly mop water off the floor after you shower (which means the door is most likely leaking)

Many people also replace their shower doors when they remodel their bathroom. And you’ll need a new door if you’re transitioning from a framed door to a frameless one or vice versa.

Common Shower Door Problems

The bathroom is a high-moisture area—there’s not much you can do to avoid that. Because of the damp conditions, mold and mildew build up in your shower and on the shower door. If enough mineral deposits, mold and soap scum accumulate on your shower door, it can cause discoloration on the glass. Some cleaning products may be able to fix this, but sometimes the door needs to be replaced (especially if it’s older).

There are other problems that are harder to prevent—such as metal framing rust and cracked or shattered glass. These types of problems require professional shower door replacement.
