There are many ways to break your shower screen, but if you live in Adelaide there’s only one way to get it fixed.

Broken shower screens

A reasonable quality shower screen will last for years, giving you countless showers without a single issue. The only maintenance you’ll need to do is to give it a clean now and again. Or not, depending on your level of domesticity!

However, like all mechanical things that slide, hinge or pivot, eventually issues can occur. It can be something minor that you might be able to fix, like a loose screw, but it can be something that requires more professional attention:

  • While metal and water don’t generally mix very well, the hardware used on shower screens – or at least the good quality ones – are built to cope with the conditions. However, over time these metal parts can become corroded and eventually screws, hinges, shower tracks, frames, hinges and other parts can break or need replacing.
  • Hinged shower screen doors can get stuck when opening or closing, or sliding shower screens can fall off their track. 
  • Shower glass panels can become misaligned, making the entire screen difficult to open and close, and allowing water to leak through.
  • Silicon surrounding the shower screen can deteriorate and allow water leakage. 
  • The glass in the shower screen can crack, either from a single incident or due to wear and tear over time.
  • Worse still, a panel in your shower screen can shatter. Hopefully it’s tempered glass – the same type of glass used in car windows that shatters into lots of little pieces. It can still cause a nasty cut, but not as bad as standard glass.
  • While it doesn’t fall into the ‘broken’ category, perhaps the shower screen in your Adelaide home simply needs replacing. Perhaps it was installed in the 1970s or 1980s, when the height of fashion was thick coloured glass that Austin Powers may still love, but most of us have moved on from.

While Adelaide Shower Screens supply and install framed, semi-frameless and frameless shower screens for new bathrooms and ensuites, they also repair broken shower screens and panels. They only supply and install quality items and are experienced professionals. 

It’s also worth pointing out that if your existing shower screen has broken, you may be able to make an insurance claim. Check with your insurance provider.
