The notching of shower
glass is one of the most precise parts of a frameless shower enclosure. One thing that should always be taken into consideration
is plumb and level. Most all shower stalls are not plumb or level and must be measured with care and attention to every detail.
When the wall or buttress is out of plumb the shower glass must be cut to match or it will look bad. The gaps between
the wall and the glass must be very minimal for the shower to look good. The silicone should never be a cover for bad
measurements. There are situations where the wall is bowed and silicone can help make the shower enclosure look better
but, the silicone should not be relied upon when correct measurements should have been used. Another thing that will
make a huge difference in the look of the shower enclosure is the bullnose. The most common bullnoses are usually 11/16"-13/16". The glass must be fabricated so that it matches
the buttress or pony wall bullnose. A bullnose is where the horizontal and vertical wall meets. Sometimes the tiles are placed so that no bullnoses
are used and the corner is sharp. However the way the pony wall or buttress was installed the glass should always follow
the contour. The edges of the shower glass panel should always be polished even if the glass is not on the visible sides.
The edges of the corner notch do not have to be machine polished but never the less polished.

*We polish all notches and corner cutouts.
*We always measure tight around bullnoses.
