Key Terms for Shower Remodeling Projects

If you are looking to remodel or repair your bath tub, it is recommended to do some up front research. There are many styles that can be used for your shower stall or sliding door. A common shower door you may wish to install is a frameless design. Having an idea of your favorite styles will streamline the process. The following are all terms that will help you when you are deciding how to remodel your bathroom.

  • Buttress - Also known as a pony wall. This is a wall that is less than full height. The full height is determined by the size of the other walls in the enclosure.
  • Curb - A raised edge. This keeps the water from draining onto the bathroom floor. This is more common for a shower stall rather than a bathroom tub.
  • Frameless - This is a shower door that does not have metal on the edge of the glass. Typically these doors are made with 3/8" or 1/2" tempered glass.
  • Cubicle - This is a shower that rests against two walls. The other two walls finish the cubicle or enclosure.
  • Neo-Angle - A shower design that uses three pieces of glass to connect the shower to two conjoined walls. The glass is angled at 135 degrees.
  • Tempered Glass - This is frequently used for shower doors and enclosures. The glass is strengthened through heat making it four times stronger than standard glass. In the event the tempered glass is broken, the pieces do not form sharp edges. Many people decide to go with the tempered glass for this safety feature.

    Man's first showers were actually found in nature – waterfalls. The concept of flowing water led to inside units. The Ancient Greeks established the first systems in communal buildings, yet baths remained the preferred method to wash oneself. Today, homeowners opt for private cubicles within their home. These cubicles have a floor tray that catches water. Some units are fully enclosed and have steam jets that release humidity into the stall. No matter what system you have, glass and metal doors and screens finish the look. If water escapes your unit and gets into the flooring, damage occurs. The weight of a shower or bathtub requires strong plywood flooring. Allowing water to pool on tile flooring can be costly. Glass enclosures prevent this from happening. Frameless and regular units require the panels and fixtures. Custom designs match your specific theme. Some units have sliding doors, others pivot. To complete your remodel project, look for faucets, fixtures, and accessories that match the framing. By the time the work is done, you'll have a new space that's easy to clean and looks great. With a full remodeling job, your home value will increase with new paint, fixtures, and tub or stall enclosure. Dealers sell and repair regular and frameless enclosures. Many also offer matching accessories and fixtures. They install your dream unit for you, regardless if you have a tiny corner unit or a large steam unit. They sell the parts and hardware allowing you to do it yourself. Find the best prices by calling around and seeing if they have any current specials.
