Frameless Shower Doors
A frameless shower door enclosure is made up of 3/8″ to ½” thick tempered and polished safety glass which is strong and sturdy enough to use minimal metal only to secure panels in place instead of strengthening them.
Framed Shower Doors
A framed shower door is constructed of thinner less expensive glass 1/8″ to 3/16″ thick and utilizes metal to strengthen the enclosure.

Leaking Shower Doors
When responding to the typical call we receive regarding leaking shower doors, the first question we ask is: What kind of shower do you own? Framed or frameless? Typically a framed shower that is leaking has seals that have broken down or fallen off and or the silicone sealing the framework to the stone has failed. In either case it is relatively easy to repair. If the shower enclosure is a frameless unit, things can be a little more difficult. We see time after time, frameless shower door have been installed on top of a threshold that is either not level or even sloping outwards towards the bathroom floor. In this case usually a polyurethane sweep has been used to try and stop the water from leaking onto the floor. We recommend replacing the sweep with an aftermarket threshold. These thresholds are available in colors to match most any hardware finish available. If the silicone has failed once again the leak is easy to repair.
