Shower Enclosures

A new shower enclosure will enhance the appearance, beauty, and functionality of your bathroom. Designed to suit your style and budget, Precision Upstate offers a wide-range of options from modern frameless enclosures, to semi-frameless, or lightweight framed doors. If you want to transform your shower enclosure into something truly extraordinary, consider our innovative printed glass options!

Frameless Shower Enclosures

Frameless shower enclosures are the premium choice for any bathroom. The glass doors and panels come in a wide variety of thicknesses and can be customized to meet your shower’s needs. Frameless shower enclosures require "blocking" to be securely mounted on wood studs in your wall.

Frameless Barndoor Slider

A classic roller sliding door coupled with a sleek and modern design provides the ultimate in contemporary design for your bathroom.

Semi-Frameless Shower Enclosures

Semi-frameless shower enclosures are a great choice when blocking is not available. Semi-frameless doors can be designed with many configurations, including sliding doors.

Framed Shower Enclosures

Framed shower enclosures come in multiple configurations. They can be installed in a shower or on top of a bathtub. They are lightweight and a great value.

  • We can only measure once your shower is sheet-rocked and tiled. As every element is custom-made, this is a necessity and assures you get a perfectly-fitting shower.
  • If you are getting a frameless shower, “blocking” is required. “Blocking” is the presence of solid wood studs behind the wall to fasten the hinges. Without proper blocking, we may have to modify the shower to a different type.
  • The typical installation time will be around 2 hours (more or less depending on complexity).
  • As this is a custom product, orders cannot be canceled and are binding.
  • We guarantee our work and will make sure you are happy with the product we have installed.
  • Once you place the order, all communication regarding scheduling is exclusively done by our scheduling department. The direct number is 518-346-6027. We have found that the best way to communicate scheduling is texting. However, we will respect your preferences.
  • Your lack of flexibility to schedule measurements during normal working hours may slow down the process.

We are looking forward to making this a positive and seamless experience for you.

We have installed over 10,000 showers and learned a thing or two. It’s the little things that make the difference. We want to make sure that we design the best possible shower we can. To do so, we ask you at the beginning to provide us with 2-3 pictures of your current setup. This will minimize mistakes in the design process. The more we know, the better we can serve you.

Shower functionality checklist:

  • Did you provide a picture to us of the shower to be enclosed?
  • Can the shower door be opened without touching an obstacle?
  • Can the water be turned on without getting wet?
  • Is the position of the shower head such that water is likely to leak out?
  • Is the door opening sufficient to get in and out easily?
  • Is the towel bar easily reachable once you get out of the shower?
  • Is the setup convenient for older people?
  • Is the setup convenient for smaller children?

The decision what to get is far more complex than you think. And expensive mistakes can be made in not considering all the aspects. We are not trying to sell any specific shower configuration but to help you to make the right decision for your needs by applying what we learned in over 25,000 installations. A shower enclosure is not a do it yourself project, as mistakes can be costly. Feel free to contact us if you need advice. The list below is giving you some ideas but is by no means complete. Many options and decisions are driven by your current layout, that’s why all showers are custom designed for your needs.
