Increase Home Values, Replace Ugly Tubs

Savvy homeowners are increasing their home values by taking down shower curtains and outdated, worn out shower doors, and installing new glass shower enclosures. Glass Doctor of North Texas will display the latest trends in glass shower enclosures at the Dallas Home and Garden Show March 6-8, 2009, at Market Hall.

Remodeling magazine estimates at least 75 percent of the cost of bathroom renovations can be recouped at the time of sale. In addition, bathrooms are second only to kitchens in renovations that help sell a home.

“Today’s shower enclosures can be customized many different ways, depending upon what the homeowner wants,” said Larry Patterson of Glass Doctor of North Texas. “Some homeowners are replacing tubs with large shower enclosures that have full swinging doors. These enclosures are much safer than climbing in and out of a tub.”

Glass Doctor of North Texas can guide homeowners through the entire process, design, budget and installation of a glass shower enclosure. Homeowners should consider the following before ordering a glass shower enclosure.

1. Configuration – Where is the shower or tub located in the bathroom? Are the walls made of sheetrock or tile? Where are the supporting studs? The answers to these questions help determine the maximum weight of the glass that the walls can support.

2. Shower Head – Make sure the shower head will not spray water out the glass enclosure's door when it is opened with the water turned on. Water should stay inside the enclosure.

3. Measurements – What may look like a rectangular opening may not be exactly rectangular once it is measured. Glass shower enclosures should be cut out of square to fit the opening when necessary. Glass Doctor of North Texas can provide expert measurement so that you get a beautiful finished product.

4. Ventilation – If the glass shower enclosure is too high and the ceiling is too low, the shower enclosure will not get enough ventilation. Without ventilation, moisture will build up, paint can peel and mold may grow, especially in a sheetrock ceiling.
