  2. How do I know I need a new shower door?
If you find rust or corrosion on the metal, a crack or discoloration on the glass, if the door won’t close or doesn’t fit properly, or you find yourself mopping up after each shower you need a new Century Shower Door! Also, if you are remodeling a bathroom or building an all new custom bathroom, give Century Shower Door a call. Please note, in order for us to give you an accurate estimate, the walls must be finished (i.e. Tile or Marble installed).
  3. How do I know which enclosure will be best for me?
An appointment will be made with you in your home for a free no-obligation written estimate. At that time one of our expert salespeople will show you photographs, diagrams, frame finishes, glass options and they will then recommend styles that best fit your needs.
  4. What is the difference between a Framed unit & a Frameless unit?
Framed units are the more traditional style of shower doors which include aluminum framework around the glass. Frameless units provide a more contemporary open look as they use a minimal amount of framework around the glass. Both units offer the same amount of safety and stability, so the choice between the two is usually based on taste not necessity. Frameless units are available in 3/8” and 1/2” glass.
  5. What makes Century Shower Door’s Framed units better than all the others?
The design of Century Shower Door’s metal frame is unique in the shower door industry. It has a tubular design, rather than a flat rail, which provides a long lasting and sure fitting product. Non-corrosive aluminum pivots with nylon inserts replace outdated metal piano hinges and an exclusive adjustable wall jamb allows our units to fit squarely in any opening regardless of wall conditions. Century Shower Door has no stock panels or stock units. Each glass panel is built to order so that we can provide you with a secure and leak free fit.
