Can we reuse our shower doors?

greendreamhomeFebruary 27, 2014

We are gutting our bathroom due to mold behind our shower tiles. (Okay, that's why we are gutting the shower. We're redoing the rest of the bathroom just because!)

Part of the remediator's bid is to remove and discard the shower doors. But my husband wonders why people don't reuse them. Is there a reason?

If we DO reuse them, how difficult is it to change the hinges and handle? The new bathroom fixtures will be a different color.

Genera;y, it's because of metal deterioration and the unavailability of gaskiting material, remember, the contractor has liability under warranty, unless you are willing to waiver.

Contact a local glass company.

It's cheaper to change them out than to pay the labor to remove the framing and go with a different color. Besides, everyone is doing frameless these days, and you probably want to update the style to at least semi frameless.
