Shower sliding door advice

commokMay 23, 2012

I have a remodeled masterbath with a 48"x60" walkin shower (opening is 58" wide). Due to the layout of the bathroom, we are going with a sliding door - one with a 30" fixed glass panel, and a 29" sliding glass door - 3/8" tempered glass on both. Two models that are being offered by the glass companies are the CR Lawrence Serenity, and the Cardinal Skyline. The difference in price for an installed system is $500 (Serenity $1400, Skyline $1900). Both look great, the difference is the Serenity has a square 1-3/16" hollow bar supporting the panels, while the Skyline has a 3/4" solid round bar. Anyone have either of these doors, and can comment on them? Any advice? I am thinking the less expensive door should work fine, but wonder if any of you have advice...

Should be no issues with either, the only real difference would be aesthetics which would be entirely up to you. Both companies make a good product and providing the installation is top notch you should have no issues. That being said the best products in the world install be a lousy installer will cause problems so be careful on that end.

I almost didn't reply since I don't have exactly what you are asking for. But if someone else looking for sliding doors hits this thread....we got one from Basco and you can order them through Lowes (& use the 15% off moving discount coupon on their site if they still have it). I am happy with it and they have many glass options. I know most people prefer clear. We got the easy clean shield treatment and it does seem to work well.

Basco's web site, now with a luxury line and many frameless models they didn't used to have
