Standard Glass has a price-match guarantee, so if you bring us a quote that’s lower for the same specifications, we’ll match it. That said, here are the biggest reasons for price differences:
Glass thickness: The two most common sizes are 3/8” and 1/2” glass. Specific applications call for different thicknesses. We always make sure to install the proper glass thickness.
Metal clips/U-channels: True frameless showers are installed with 2-inch metal clips that are drilled through the glass. The U-channels are less expensive and require fewer cutouts. We’ve found that this is a common cause for discrepancies between our quotes and others’.
Glass type: Variances in patterned or tinted glass types can result in price differences.
Glass coatings: EnduroShield coating offered by Standard Glass makes your shower stain resistant and easier to clean, but comes with an additional cost (and a 5-year warranty). This is typically on every shower quote we send as an option unless you expressly state in advance that you do not want it.
