Getting a professional to install your shower screen will prevent mistakes that could cause leakages, instability, or an uneven screen. They’ll also have the right license to get the job done.
Your shower screen installation professional can assist at every step, from choosing your screen to fitting it. If you need custom shower screens, they can help organise glass cutting to fit your space or direct you to a local place that can get this done. Here are the most common shower screen styles you can get installed:
Your shower screen installer will make sure that a frameless shower screen is suitable for your space. Next they’ll set out the brackets, attach them brackets, install the fixed panel, secure the hinge panel, seal the gaps, and then attach the door panel. To finish off the job, they’ll check that all the gaps are even, tighten the screws, and remove the blocks. If required, they’ll cut away excess rubber from the other panels. Your shower will be ready to use in 12 hours once the sealant is fully set. This process will, of course, be even simpler if you only have a fixed shower panel with no hinged door (popular for larger shower spaces).
A semi-frameless shower screen has a frame outside the glass, but no frame around the door or adjoining parts of the screen. If you’re getting a semi-frameless shower screen installed, your contractor will first fix the mounting brackets to the walls. Next, they’ll mark the positions of the holes, drill the holes, and secure the frame. They’ll check that everything is even and remove the supporting blocks. After 12 hours, the sealant will be fully set and your shower should be ready for use.
Framed showers come fully framed (including the door). This comes in a variety of styles, including hinged, sliding, fixed panel, and corner shower screens. The exact installation steps vary depending on the style of framed shower screens you need installed. But generally, they’ll start by fixing metal channels to the wall, before installing the first and second panels and then sealing it all in with silicone to prevent water leakage.
If your existing shower screen is in need of repair, your technician will assess the damage. Common shower screen repairs include replacing broken glass, re-doing the sealant, replacing or tightening the hinge, updating the handles, and replacing the roller mechanism.
