Common Shower Door Problems
Common signs that indicate you may need a new shower door are:
- The framing is corroding or has rust
- The door doesn’t close all the way
- The door doesn’t fit properly
- The glass is discolored or cracked
- You have to constantly mop water off the floor after you shower (which means the door is most likely leaking)
Many people also replace their shower doors when they remodel their bathroom. Additionally, you’ll need a new door if you’re transitioning from a framed door to a frameless one or the other way around.
The bathroom is a high-moisture area—there’s not much you can do to avoid that. Because of the damp conditions, mold and mildew build up in your shower and on the shower door. If enough mineral deposits, mold and soap scum accumulate on your shower door, it can cause discoloration on the glass. Some cleaning products may be able to fix this, but sometimes the door needs to be replaced (especially if it’s older).
There are other problems that are harder to prevent—such as metal framing rust and cracked or shattered glass. These types of problems require professional shower door replacement.
