Q?How do you know who to pick as the right shower installation contractor?

Here are some suggestions for how to approach and manage your shower installation project:

  • Talk to friends, especially any that you know who have done relatively recent bathroom renovations. Ask them who they used as the construction company on the job, was the job done on or near the deadline, and what was the end-result quality of the work done.
  • Don’t hesitate to talk to other contractors to get their feedback on who the best contractors are to work with.
  • Learn about the industry – about the best products and solutions available today and how well –or how poorly – they work in the real world. Go to home and garden or trade shows; Talk to actual customers. Get comfortable with the products you will have to support and maintain for many years to come.
  • And, lastly and perhaps most obviously: Talk at length with all of the prospective contractors who are bidding on your project. Very few won’t offer you a free consultation and that consultation will be an ideal opportunity to get not just a sense of the contractor’s working approach but also their approachability, professionalism, and willingness to listen and adapt easily to your concerns. Don’t hesitate to interview them like you would anyone else vying for employment would be.
Q?How to keep your shower glass clean?

Remember that glass is a porous, vulnerable material that ultimately comes from nature. Over time, if neglected or treated with harsh chemicals and abrasives, your shower glass will lose the clarity that you admired when it was new. Here are some tips for keeping shower glass clean:

  • Never use abrasive chemical cleaners, abrasive sponges (steel wool, etc.), or coarse brushes to clean glass. Look at product labels to determine if the product is truly designed to clean glass safely or if it’s more of a generic chemical cleaner. Look for cleaning products that are designed specifically for cleaning glass.
  • Use a soft, lint-free cloth to wipe down and keep glass clean.
  • Spray the shower glass down with fresh water when you’re done showering. This can help spray off soap, calcium, lime, and potentially other deposits.
  • Use a squeegee or towel to wipe excess water from the glass when you’re done showering every time. It’s a simple, easy routine that takes just a few seconds when you’re done showering and it will go a long way to keeping your glass clean.
