Glass Shower Door Installation Cost

The average cost of glass shower door installation is $907. Most homeowners pay between $548 and $1,304. The exact amount depends on three things: door size, glass type, and door type. Most frameless doors are considered custom installations because they feature special hardware for mounting.

A sliding glass door is the most popular style at $100 to $300 for the unit alone. Expect to pay another $200 to $300 for installation. Installing a new glass door will help you boost your home's resale value.

New Framed Shower Door

A framed shower door costs between $190 and $500. The exact cost depends on the type of framing material and glass used. Framed doors are more affordable than other door types and there are many styles. Popular selections include pivot doors, hinged doors, and sliding doors.

Semi-Frameless Shower Doors Estimator

Semi-frameless shower doors start around $225. Higher-end models cost over $2,000. They tend to be more expensive than fully-framed doors but less expensive than frameless styles because they do not require special hinges or hardware. Semi-frameless styles also tend to have thicker glass than framed styles, making them an affordable and durable choice.

Custom Shower Door Cost

High end custom shower doors can cost $3,300 or more. The exact cost depends on the type of glass and size of the shower enclosure. Examples of custom doors include curved and neo-angle models, as well as doors with personalized, stainless-steel fixtures. Doors that are taller than 76" or wider than 60" are also considered custom models. 

Shower Screens

Shower screens typically cost between $70 and $300. Also known as side panels, they lack the ability to open and are not technically doors. Larger or customized panels usually cost more.

Glass Shower Enclosure Cost

Shower enclosures with glass sides start at $400 for a small 30" x 30" model. Installing a shower enclosure costs $300 to $400 depending on the scope of the project. They are good choices for bathrooms with limited room because you can place the shower head in the corner of a small bathroom and enclose it with a custom glass wall to conserve space.

Shower Glass Panel or Walls Cost 

You can expect to pay $700 to $1,900 for a shower glass wall. If your enclosure is wider than 60", you may wish to install glass side panels as your side wall. You can then bundle your panels with your door to save on materials and labor costs. The result is a shower that is bright and airy.

Labor Cost to Install a Shower Door

Labor costs to install a shower door range from $250 to over $1,000. Professional installers typically charge an average of $60 per hour plus the cost of special hardware or tools needed to complete the job. Most professional installations take between two and four hours.

Frameless Shower Door Installation Cost

Installing a frameless shower door can cost $1,000 or more. Styles that involve curved doors or neo-angle styles are typically the costliest. Custom installations may require unique tools for installation. Ask your hired contractor is the cost of these tools and supplies is included in the charges.

Bathtub Door Installation

The labor rate to install a bathtub door can get up to $600. Two factors that impact costs are door type and the condition of the bathtub. If a tub is in poor condition, repairs or replacement will add to the project labor and material price before installation begins.

Cost to Install a Sliding Shower Door 

Most homeowners pay between $250 and $380 for shower door installation. The price you pay will depend on the size of the opening the door will cover. Additions of custom-sized doors that accommodate openings wider than 60" is also costlier.

Shower Door Replacement Cost

You can expect to pay between $500 and $1,400 to replace a framed or sliding shower door. This includes the cost to de-install and dispose the old door before your contractor secures the new one in place. Replacement costs for sliding styles are usually on the lower end of the range while replacing framed models often costs over $1,000.

A project that involves a different type involves more labor will be more expensive. For example, replacing a framed style with another framed style is less expensive than replacing a framed door with a frameless one.

Glass Installation

Homeowners can expect to pay $270 to replace shower glass alone. Glass shower door repair costs can be as low as $80 or over $500 depending on the type of glass and amount of replacement material needed. A local sliding door repair service may also be necessary if your door sticks or if broken glass obstructs your door's mobility.

Glass Shower Surround Installation Cost Factors

Door Size

Most shower doors are between 30" and 60" wide and approximately 72" tall. A key factor impacting installation cost is the size of the opening the door will cover. For example, a bathtub/shower combo may require a larger door than a standard shower enclosure. A custom glass shower surround installation can cost more if your door size is wider than 60 inches or taller than 76 inches.

Shower Glass Cost by Type

You can expect to pay $50 to $150 per square foot for shower glass. The price will vary according to type you choose and its thickness. In general, textured or frosted selections are more expensive than clear or transparent ones. Frameless glass often costs more because it is thicker. Below is a summary of the most common types available:

Door Types

Make sure to set your budget before you begin shopping. You may need to decide whether you are willing to invest in a high-end, unframed door or whether it is more important to keep costs down.

Hiring Shower Glass Installers vs. DIY

Shower glass installation requires skill and precision. Glass is fragile and must be handled with care to avoid cracking and chipping. A professional installer can complete a full installation quickly while avoiding door damage. Other pitfalls of DIY jobs include leaks and mold growth. 

Deciding to DIY or hire a pro is not always easy. A major factor to consider is the scope of the project. For instance, consider whether you wish to install or replace a shower door. In general, DIY is a cost-effective choice if the project is simple. Hiring a shower installer near you is a better option for more complicated installations.
