Brin provides a perfect-fit solution for a residential bathroom remodel
Heartland Glass, a division of Brin, worked with homeowner Jan to provide a shower door that would properly fit the opening in her newly tiled bathroom.
After new tile was installed in this homeowner’s bathroom, there was one (not-so-small) problem. The new shower opening was two inches wider than the old opening—which caused the shower door swing to hit the toilet.
Instead of a heavy glass shower door, Heartland Glass designed a new door layout using a semi-frameless door and extended jamb. The door was now able to swing through and avoid the toilet completely.
Shortages and errors on the vendor side caused unexpected challenges in this project. When the vendor didn’t deliver the parts as expected, which would have normally caused installation delays, Heartland Glass sprang into action. They contacted the vendor, explained what parts were missing, and then sent an employee to pick up the parts–located an hour’s drive from the job site. Even though it wasn’t their error, the Heartland Glass team went the extra mile to make sure the door could be installed on schedule.
Not only was the homeowner pleased with the new look of the door, but she was thrilled that Heartland Glass was able to get it installed within her timeframe. It relieved some pressure as she was preparing the house for sale—since the shower door was the last item on her remodel checklist.
