Making showers beautiful and comfortable for over 65 years!
The primo-choice for shower and tub enclosure remains the same as it has been for decades: glass. While the changing culture has rotated in and out other fads, from fashion and haircuts to car styles and architecture, the demand for glass shower enclosures has not waived. Why? Its simple. Glass is the best choice; it is easy to maintain and hygienic, it makes the bathroom feel larger, its functionality is unsurpassed, and it doesn’t stick to your wet hiney like shower curtains are notorious for doing!
A new shower enclosure will give your bathroom an elegant look combined with functionality and easy to clean surfaces. After all, we do spend a lot of time in our bathrooms, and they are becoming one of the best selling features in our homes today. Protect your investment in your home with a cost-effective upgrade: a glass shower or tub enclosure.

Our over 65 years of experience helping homeowners, interior designers, builders, architects, and remodel contractors have made us the top choice for shower and bathtub doors in Lubbock, Texas.
Framed Shower and Tub Enclosures :: Typically, this is what comes to mind when pictures a glass shower enclosure. This style includes a glass barrier that is framed with aluminum framing material to hold the glass in place. This style has been used in bathrooms for many years, and while the general look and function of this style hasn’t changed much, the popularity of certain finishes or colors of the aluminum framing has varied. Some examples of available finishes include chrome, brushed nickel, brass, white, black, cream, almond, wrought iron, satin nickel, platinum, oil rubbed bronze, burnished copper, burnished gold, antique brass, and much more. With such a high variety of finished looks, framed shower enclosures are a great way to add personality and class to your bathroom economically, allowing you to use thinner, less expensive glass than the alternative frameless shower doors.
Frameless Shower and Tub Enclosures :: Because of their clean, elegant look, frameless glass shower and tub enclosures can be found in most every luxury home across the nation. They remain the premier choice for shower doors. Just as the name implies, this style uses minimal hardware and no framing, leaving a clean, unobtrusive shower enclosure. Because there is minimal support hardware, this style requires a thick (3/8” thick and higher), heavy safety glass that is tempered and polished. This heavier glass is more expensive initially, yet frameless shower enclosures last three to four times longer than traditional framed glass enclosures, making them a better investment in the long run. And since the enclosure is primarily glass, it is easily cleaned and “spiffed up” to look like new again. And, due to the simple physics of a frameless setup, frameless doors can open both in and out, whereas a framed door can only open out. Frameless shower enclosures add to the value of your home for minimal extra cost and are becoming a no-brainer among homeowners everywhere.
