Shower Door of the Week: Low Iron Glass with Sealant in Mount Airy, Maryland
The vote for shower door of the week was unanimous! This corner unit in Mount Airy is just stunning. The minimalist frameless glass doesn’t distract from the natural spa-like feel of the room. It also makes the space look a lot bigger! We love how the chrome hardware pairs with the greys and tans of the tile work. It’s just a lovely design. But this week, let’s dive deeper and talk all-things-glass…
Low Iron Glass
Regular glass has a slight greenish tint that comes from particles of iron. Low iron glass is more optically clear. It might not be a big deal against darker tile, but we do recommend low iron for light-colored – and especially white – tile. It’s part of what gives a frameless shower that “barely there” look.
Every so often we get a comment on our Facebook page: “Glass is so hard to keep clean!” Oh, friends, not so! With some basic prevention and maintenance, clean glass is a breeze. These Mount Airy clients opted to have us treat their glass with sealant. We offer this service to all our clients. Sealant fills up the pores and ridges in your glass to prevent scum from accumulating in the first place. Read more about how to keep your glass clean – it’s easy!
