Always Choose Quality for Barn Style Shower Doors

We know most people don’t have a few grand to spend on their bathroom doors, but it’s very important to spend a little extra for quality when deciding on barn door style shower doors for your bathroom cubicle.

Inferior brands will give you problems not too far down the track as most of them use low-quality rollers that are also a lot smaller than they should be.

There are plenty of things more frustrating than a shower door that won’t slide open properly, but why put up with it when you don’t have to. Spend the few extra dollars for quality, and your shower door will slide like a dream for years to come.

Other problems you will experience with cheaper barn style shower doors or frameless sliding doors, include:

  • They can be difficult to adjust
  • Header bars can sag over time and make it difficult to close the door
  • Harder to install (can take twice as long)
  • They can Leak

When a shower door takes longer to install, the money you saved by buying a cheaper brand could very well end up with you losing the savings because you are paying extra for the installation.
