Options for Shower Doors:
1 Note that frameless doors are not just units without a frame - they are
typically built different, with sturdier glass & hardware. 'Frameless' here includes
2 For all practical considerations, these are mainly single wall units
except for neo/corner units, which entail up to two wall sections & door.
Inclusions and Exclusions
Covers supplying all materials and labor needed to complete the installation.
The numbers favor sliding doors (or 'bypass') over hinged (or 'pivot), although
any particular choice is likely to be related to your existing opening. Overall, shower openings measuring
4 ft. to 5 ft. wide will normally take a slider while the more refined spaces can be
debatable. Prices account for typical sized shower pans, bathtubs, and tile areas while oversized installs
will come at greater costs.
Excluded are costs for any extra wall sections, and for custom finishes such
as polished brass, or brushed nickel for example.
Labor, Materials and Supplies notes:
The labor component charged to the project only.
Includes all labor necessary for the completion of project
from dimensioning & setup, marking, cutting and drilling, supplying
the necessary screws and silicone or other sealing caulk.
Amounts for the labor portion may fluctuate based on the particular
zip code by 35% and greater as can the doors themselves.
Shower Door Specifics
Grade of doors, supplies and materials are rated at builders
quality on up. Upgrades in glass (tempered. tinted, frosted, opague, etc)
and features like water repellers, and also the choice of pivot doors over
sliding will all translate to a bump in the bill.
