The Advantages of Glass Shower Doors

Glass shower doors are a stylish and modern addition to any bathroom. Not only do they give your bathroom a sleek and sophisticated look, but they also offer many practical benefits over traditional shower curtains or opaque doors. If you’re thinking about upgrading your bathroom with glass shower doors, read on to learn more about the advantages and different types of glass doors available.

Advantages of Glass Shower Doors:
1. Aesthetic Appeal: Glass shower doors give your bathroom a clean and elegant look, which can help to increase the overall value of your home.
2. Increased Light: Glass doors allow more light to enter the shower area, which can make the bathroom appear brighter and more spacious.
3. Easy Maintenance: Glass shower doors are easy to clean and maintain. Unlike shower curtains, which can accumulate mold and mildew over time, glass doors can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
4. Durability: Glass shower doors are made from tempered glass, which is stronger and more durable than regular glass. This means that they are less likely to break or shatter, providing added safety for you and your family.

Types of Glass Shower Doors:
1. Frameless Shower Doors: These doors are made from a single pane of glass, which is supported by small metal hinges. They offer a sleek and modern look, and are perfect for bathrooms with contemporary decor.
2. Semi-Frameless Shower Doors: These doors have a partial frame around the edges of the glass, which helps to reinforce the glass and provide added stability. They are a great compromise between the sleek look of frameless doors and the added support of fully framed doors.
3. Framed Shower Doors: These doors have a metal frame that surrounds the glass panels, providing added stability and support. They are a good choice for bathrooms with traditional decor, and come in a wide range of finishes to match your existing fixtures.
4. Sliding Shower Doors: These doors slide along a track to open and close, which can save space in smaller bathrooms. They are available in both frameless and framed versions.

In conclusion, glass shower doors are a beautiful and practical addition to any bathroom. Whether you opt for a frameless, semi-frameless, framed, or sliding door, you’ll enjoy the benefits of increased light, easy maintenance, and durability.

The value of perspective

Are you managing based on experience or wisdom? Experience is defined as learning from one’s own mistakes. Wisdom is defined as learning from others’ mistakes. Wisdom is defined as learning from others’ mistakes. Experience is always expensive. Wisdom is free.

During my career at Evans Glass Co., I have experienced five major financial crises: 20 percent interest rates during the Carter administration, the late 1980s recession as a result of the 1986 tax code revision, the bust, 9-11 and the recent mortgage crisis. Based upon my experience, which has been very expensive, I have learned that our behavior is very predictable before, during and after each crisis.


  • Consumer spending on luxuries/non-necessities accelerates because society begins believing that the current boom times are normal.
  • In our industry, we begin to see the creation of many small glass shops. Glaziers think they see “the boss getting rich” and leave to start their own company. My father said this typically happens six to 12 months before the crisis begins.


  • Society begins loudly complaining that “gas prices are too high,” and our dependence upon “foreign oil” is out of control.
  • People begin worrying about other countries “owning” us and how our country will become a puppet of the foreign powers.
  • Parents begin fretting about “their kids’ future” and the legacy they will leave the “younger generation.”
  • Generally, people believe we will never see good times again.
  • Businesses panic and operate out of fear by slashing jobs, reducing inventory and taking projects at near cost “just to keep their people busy.”
  • It is easy to become a victim of short-term thinking with very little or no thought of the future. We function in survival mode.


  • We can’t believe we are emerging from the crisis, so we postpone growth decisions. We are afraid to invest in our business, even though it is the best time to do so and we will get the best return on our investment.
  • Revenues and profits do not parallel each other. Revenues grow first and faster than profits. Businesses are still using low margins to get work. Margins will be raised when demand begins exceeding supply. Increased profits will then follow.
  • Cash flow is constricted. Businesses must buy materials to execute the new work. These materials must be paid for before the business collects receivables, or payment to vendors must be delayed until collection. In the latter case, vendors begin demanding payment or they will cease supply. In a few months, the cash flow shortage will disappear.
  • New equipment purchases or the repair of existing equipment is required. For example, old trucks that were idled need repair, or new hires are necessary.

When we are in a crisis it is difficult to know our location. It is probable that we will forget our past experiences in similar situations. This is a recap of my experience. Will you make decisions based upon experience or wisdom?
