Do You Need to Repair or Replace Your Shower?

Glass Shower Door
An enclosed shower makes a wonderful addition to your home. It gives you a place to shower comfortably and adds just a hint of luxury and elegance to any home.

With that said, though, even the best showers won't last forever. Problems with the tile, the glass doors, or other issues often pop up over time. If you've had your shower for awhile, make sure you are aware of the warning signs that it may be time for a new shower or at least for some maintenance and updates.

Your Shower Doors Don't Open and Close Easily

One of the big indicators that you may need to look into redoing your shower, or at least your shower doors, is if you notice that your doors aren't opening and closing smoothly and easily.

This issue most often occurs with sliding shower doors, but it can occur with any type of door. The problem could be something simple, like a door that's gotten off track, or it could be more serious, like a warped frame. In any case, you'll want to have a professional take a look to figure out what is causing the issue.

Your Doors Are Experiencing Cracking, Chipping, and Other Glass Damage

If you have glass shower doors, you should be checking them regularly for chips, knicks, cracks, and other damage.

Even small cracks or crevices, which may not seem like a big deal, can expand over time. This is especially true in a bathroom where heat and moisture are always rising and falling, causing the glass to expand and contract over and over again.

If you don't address this problem quickly, it could cause your glass doors to shatter, which could be both dangerous and costly to repair. Fortunately, professionals can assess the severity of the problem and provide you with advice on what to do next, whether that means repairing your current glass or opting for new glass doors.

Your Tiles Are Severely Stained

Over time, shower tiles can get stained due to constant exposure to water. This is especially true if they are not cleaned regularly or if the wrong kind of cleaner is used on the tiles, thus eroding their protective exterior.

While some stains can be cleaned, very stained tiles can be impossible to restore to their former glory. If you've tried everything but can't get your tiles to look like new again, it may be time to replace them or even to redo your entire shower for a fresh, new look.

You Spot Rust

Many showers consist of metal, tile, and glass construction. The metal, unfortunately, is often the first part to go, which is why many professionals are advising against using metal in newer shower installations. 

If you do currently have metal in your shower design, though, check it carefully for signs of wear and tear, especially rust. Rust will only get worse with time and can seriously impact the beauty of your shower. The only way to stop rust in its tracks is to replace your shower or at least the metal parts.

As you can see, your shower will often let you know when something isn't quite right. The key is just to know what warning signs to look for and then to take action as soon as you spot any of these signs.
