Most contractors and tile installers understand what needs to be done to accommodate a frameless shower door, however, it is always a good idea to have an explicit discussion to be sure you are all on the same page. The main points to discuss are:
Please take a look at our preparation tips page for a more extensive explanation of shower prep.
It depends on your situation! We hear this a lot when we encounter fiberglass shower stalls or walls that terminate at difficult angles. We enjoy special projects and have special methods of installing shower doors in these situations. Please give us a call and send photos to our office phone (678-477-1389), office email (email@example.com), or Contact Us Page, and we will be happy to help you!
Yes! We will remove your old shower door, clean up any excess silicone, patch the holes left behind, and dispose of your old enclosure. We provide this service at a very low rate as a courtesy to our customers and cannot be held liable for any unforeseen circumstances that may be uncovered as a result of removing your shower. Examples include cracked or broken tiles, tiles coming off of the wall or curb, stains from the previous framing, etc.
We are not able to repair framed shower doors. There are too many manufacturers and pieces involved for us to be able to resolve issues at a fair price. We would be happy to quote you for a new, frameless shower enclosure if you would like.
We can occasionally repair a frameless shower door, particularly if it requires a minor adjustment to the door or hinges or other minor repair work like silicone. We cannot however, repair leaks or guarantee that we could resolve a leak especially on a shower door that is not our own because we do not know the origin of the leak or the history of the shower.
We are not able to install materials that are not our own. We cannot be proficient in installing every online offering, guarantee the quality of the system, or be held liable for damages to your materials. For these reasons, we are unable to install enclosures that are not purchased from our shop.
We will allow you to use your own handle if you would prefer, however, we will need to be advised on the exact specifications of the handle in order to cut the glass appropriately. We will not be able to install your handle because we cannot be liable for your materials.
There are many advantages to a frameless shower door, including:
With so many advantages, you might wonder what the disadvantages of frameless shower doors are. There are only two that we can think of.
Different professionals use different terminology, but in general, a framed shower includes aluminum framing all the way around each individual piece of glass. A frameless shower does not include aluminum channeling and is entirely frameless on all four sides. Semi-frameless shower doors can be anything in between. Take a look at our gallery page for more photo examples!
Frameless shower doors are not water right. They are considered a partition. That being said, there are many things we can do to prevent leaks beginning with your tile installation. Take a look at our preparation tips to learn more about what to tell your tile installer.
Frameless shower doors have been around since the early 1990s. We have never had any safety issues associated with shower doors, but we are very cautious when it comes to inspecting glass for minor imperfections and general glass care which may result in damage.
Yes! Some companies will not install heavy glass shower doors on acrylic shower inserts because the inserts are typically hollow and do not provide enough support to manage the weight of the glass. To bypass this, we use an aluminum header bar or other support to reduce the weight of the glass on the acrylic. We also have a myriad of semi-frameless solutions that work well for acrylic pan inserts.
It depends on whether or not you've selected a glass coating for your shower door or not. If you do not have a glass coating, you may use Zep Tub and Tile on your glass. If you do have the glass coatings, you might try San ammonia free cleaner lor even Dawn soap with water. These can be applied with a BLUE Scotch Brite scrubbing pad. DO NOT use the green Scotch Brite pad. It will scratch your glass
Pinterest and other designer inspiration can be a lot of fun to work with and try to replicate, however, some designs will not work in certain spaces. We are happy to work with you on your design and look forward to seeing your finished product!
Frameless shower doors are not a cheap product, however, they are a great way to enhance the appearance of a bathroom without the expense of a remodel. Typically the price is based on a combination of size, hardware, and labor.
If built properly, a frameless shower door can last more than 20 years.
Our lead time can vary, but typically we run about 2-3 weeks from the time you submit your 50% deposit to the time we install your shower enclosure.
Most of the glass we use is 3/8" thick clear tempered glass. In some instances, we may require thicker or thinner glass like 1/2" or 1/4" thick. This will be discussed ahead of time if this is required.
Installation time depends on a lot of factors, however most installations take about 2 hours. Removing a pre-existing shower enclosure typically takes an additional hour.
We have a brick and mortar office in Suwanee where you can take a look at some shower options, but we primarily have samples rather than a showroom.we also have hundreds of photos on our gallery page that can be filtered to your specific needs.
We are offering the best quality product for the best value in a timely manner. As a family owned and operated company, we pride ourselves in doing the right thing. Our technicians are trained by our owner first, and our team of installers next. They are equipped with Brad’s 30+ years of experience and the latest techniques from the field.
We do not fabricate our own glass. We have a very strong relationship with our glass fabricators and prefer to focus on the quality of our designs, materials, and installations.
Our service area flexes based on how busy we are at any given time, however, we generally service as far west as Mableton, as far north as Ball Ground, as far east as Statham, and as far south as Midtown Atlanta. If you have a special project outside of these areas, please feel free to give us a call. We are happy to discuss the project and work with you if we are able to.
While we can never be sure how our pricing compares to our competitors, we regularly review our pricing based on the current market, material costs, and customer feedback to ensure we are remaining competitive. We cannot always price match because we are never sure exactly what materials we are being compared against. We do not use channels as structural clamps, and we do not compromise on our door hinges. We use the best materials from CR Laurence and other high-end hardware vendors, and we use specialty silicones for different tile types. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail and quality of installation.
If you are looking for a better price, please let us know. We are happy to value engineer our design or discuss the reasons behind the hardware or design we have quoted.
We offer a three year limited warranty on materials and labor. While warranty calls are not common, our typical warranty call is a routine door adjustment which most commonly occurs immediately after installation when the hinge gaskets compress or seasonally as older homes settle or move. We occasionally receive a call soon after installation about minor silicone gaps which we are more than happy to repair. We are not, however, able to clean and reapply silicone over the lifetime of the shower. This is considered routine shower maintenance and must be redone every 3-5 years depending on your tile type (man-made product versus natural stone).
Brad started the Shower Door Guy in 2011, however, he has been installing shower doors since the late 1980s and was one of the first installers to adopt frameless glass shower doors when they came into popularity in the early 1990s.
We do not remodel or install tile, however, we work with some incredible professionals in our industry and would be happy to pass along their information for your specific service area and requirements. Give us a call!
Most of the work we do is centered around custom frameless shower enclosures, but we also provide our customers with other custom glass like shelving, mirrors, cabinet glass, table top glass, closet or office partitions, food service partitions, baby gates, etc. We would be happy to help you with your special project!
We are fully insured with general liability and worker's compensation. Please let us know if your building or HOA requires proof of insurance on file.
We are located in Suwanee, GA off of Buford Highway and McGinnis Ferry behind Atlanta Flooring. Our address is 3665 Swiftwater Park Drive, Suite 306, Suwanee, GA 30024.
We do not currently offer financing or payment plans however, if this is something you need to discuss, we can work with you to accommodate your needs.
We accept credit cards, debit cards, and standard bank transfers through QuickBooks, however if you prefer to pay with Cash, check, Zelle, Venmo, or Cash app, we are also able to accommodate these methods of payment!
We prefer other card types as our fees are significantly higher for American Express credit cards.

What a great experience with The Shower Door Guy!! We wanted a frameless swivel glass shower door and got quotes from 2 other companies. Not only were they the cheapest, their customer service at delivery was exceptional! The 2 technicians that installed it were amazing!! Very professional and answered all my questions. They made sure that we were completely satisfied with the new door before they left. Very rare in today’s time. I highly recommend them!!

Their rates are very competitive, the technicians are very professional, and their work is amazing! I would definitely have them do any other shower doors I might have and am recommending them to all my friends! Before and after photos speak for themselves (I am anxiously awaiting when I can remove the temporary black support tape!)

This company is very professional, does great work and is priced very competitively. They installed a new frameless shower for us, and we were very pleased with the overall process. We called them back a couple of months later because we thought our bathroom mirror needed to be replaced (it was loose). The technician looked at it and said that it was fine and didn't need to be replaced. We really appreciated the honesty. I would recommend The Shower Door Guy without hesitation!

I have lived in a lot of places in my life and done a lot of home construction project. Brad is top notch. He came out, gave a fair quote, and came and installed the shower door promptly. It looks beautiful. If you want the best at a fair price, he's your guy. I couldn't be happier.

The last step to finishing our master bath remodel and The Shower Door Guy was the only company out of 4 that I reached out to, that called me back and gave me a quote. Everything was done professionally and I am so glad we were able to get the glass installed 2 wks from when they measured. Installation was smooth and it looks amazing. Highly recommend and will use them again for any future glass needs. Thank you! Very glad we went with The Shower Door Guy!!

My shower door was installed over 2 weeks ago and I love the outcome! The entire booking process was smooth; Emma was very helpful and responsive during our phone/email communication. She communicated in a timely manner when they realized that my hardware was on back-order. The staff who came to measure the space and install the door were very kind, professional and informative. I would definitely use them again.

Amazing company, excellent support staff (Ella and Christina), impeccable quality and installation, very reasonable price. Shout out to Andrew, our installation professional. We couldn’t have asked for better service and advice. We are thrilled with our new showers! Our only regret is that we’re out of showers to renovate!!! We cannot recommend this company enough.

This company came highly recommended by my sister and brother-in-law who had them install shower doors in two of their bathrooms. We are so glad they referred us here. Emma handled all the phone communications with us and Andrew came out to do the measurements for the glass, then returned to install the door. It was a pleasure to work with them and the shower door/glasswork is beautiful. We will definitely be calling them when we are ready for the shower door in our next bathroom.
