To Seal OR Not To Seal: Your Shower Door

To seal or not to seal your shower door… that IS the question!

Here are some factors to consider in making this decision…

Framed shower doors typically include metal to seal around the edges to bind the door with the shower wall and floor, preventing leaks. A frameless door, however, doesn’t have these protective seals around them. This means that unless the door is cut to fit perfectly, there could be large gaps between the door and other areas of the shower, which may allow water to splash or leak onto your bathroom floor.

Most problems that people have with leaking shower doors are due to the shower's design. Although there are a handful of reasons why the design doesn’t work, there is luckily ONE simple solution. Adding a shower door water diverter sweep or seal will fix most costly mistakes.
