A shower curtain simply will not keep all of the water inside of the shower where it belongs. This results in water escaping where it ends up on the floor. Over time, the water will damage the floor, and most likely the walls. If you have ever had this to happen, you already know how costly it is to have a floor, walls, and even the floor joists and wall frame replaced. Even worse, more than one wall and room may be involved. The cost of repair can be upwards of $20,000, or even more depending upon how much damage has occurred. A shower door will keep the water in the shower, and off of your floor.
There are other advantages of having a shower door vs. using a shower curtain, and these include decreasing the risk of a fall due to water in the floor. Very few shower stalls have a dome light, leaving you in a dimly lit area for your shower. A shower door will allow light to enter the shower stall, a benefit that you will certainly appreciate.

There are really only two disadvantages to frameless shower doors. The first is its upfront cost, which is higher than framed shower doors. However, since frameless shower doors will last 3 to 4 times longer than framed shower doors, over the long run, they provide more value than framed shower doors.

This can provide a distinct advantage for your plumbing in Arlington needs.
The second disadvantage is that frameless shower doors should only be installed by a professional. Due to the increased weight of the doors, installation must be correct. Many of them are designed for a precise fit for the opening to ensure no water escapes, this requires specialized installation for proper installation.
Whether you select a framed or frameless shower door, both will provide an aesthetic upgrade, increased home value, as well as provide the benefits of protecting the floors, walls and the structure of your home.
