The Easiest Update to Make to Your Home before the Holidays

The holidays are sneaking up on us this year. With only a few months to go until family and friends start gathering for celebrations, time to update your home is dwindling. If you’re still looking for a way to spiff up your home before turkey and stuffing fill your dining room table, start with the areas of your home that will be used the most. Updating your bathroom is always a great place to start.  Installing beautiful new glass shower doors from Janssen Glass & Door is a quick and easy way to modernize your home and impress your guests.

But, when it comes to glass shower doors from Janssen Glass & Door,  you can choose from an array of options, the most important being the type of glass shower doors you install. Here’s how our heavy and light shower glass doors differ:

Shower Door Installation

Heavy Glass Shower Doors

  • 3/8″ – 1/2″ thick glass
  • Do not require support of metal frame
  • Simple hardware reduces visual intrusion of metal work

Light Glass Shower Doors

  • Requires metal wrapped framework
  • Easily customized with metal framework, hardware, and accessories
