Replacing your old shower curtain or outdated shower doors is easily a project that can update the look of your bathroom to a more modern appearance. Glass shower doors, whether they are frameless, hinged, or have a minimal amount of framing to support a sliding glass door, are an affordable project that most DIY’ers can do in less than a day. Once completed, your shower enclosure or bathtub/shower will be the envy of your neighbors!

Shower Door Cost Factors
There are many options when it comes to shower doors. Depending on the type of shower or tub enclosure you have in your home, the type of shower door or features you choose are going to be limited by what you already have installed.
Cost of Installation Supplies
Installation of glass shower doors can actually be a pretty straight forward project, depending on the type you install. A shower door kit from a retailer like Lowes or Home Depot will most often have all the hardware included, and you’ll only need a few extra supplies and tools to get the job done.
Permits and Inspection
Installation Cost and Time
$160 – $320 | If you’re replacing a set of sliding glass doors in your shower, it probably won’t take more than a few hours. Aside from some exact width fitting and cutting of the door frame itself, it’s a fairly straight forward project.
$480 – $650 | Installation of a full glass shower enclosure, or a frameless glass shower door will take a bit longer. Plan on the possibility of a separate visit for precise measurement of the area, etc.
Completed Installation Time
I’ve installed my own glass shower doors many times, and during a recent bathroom makeover we chose a mostly frameless sliding glass shower door kit due to space limitations. The kit was fairly easy to install and most DIY’ers could handle this project with no problem. I installed ours over ceramic tile, so a diamond tip drill was used on low speed with plenty of water to assure the tile didn’t crack during installation.
I consider myself a very able handyman, 8/10 on my skill level. I would not hesitate to install a sliding glass door kit as a DIY project. That said, if I was going with a frameless glass setup, or a complete glass shower enclosure, I’d leave it to the pros.
