Shower Enclosures Installed in Chicago, Des Plaines and Surrounding Areas in Illinois
Create more open space. A glass walk-in shower enclosure makes a bathroom look and feel bigger, improves accessibility and adds a more modern touch.
Custom shower doors look great and are made to last
Walk-in showers have steadily gained popularity, and it's easy to understand why. Most people today prefer the convenience and roominess of a walk-in shower over a traditional combination tub/shower unit. Walk-in showers are also popular because of our aging population. Certain types of walk-in showers are designed for easy access by people with physical handicaps.
Without a traditional tub and shower curtain, modern shower enclosures are an essential addition to your remodeled bathroom. Catalyst Builders & Remodelers installs shower enclosures in a variety of styles, allowing you to find the perfect addition to your bathroom design.

Find the right style walk-in shower enclosure for your needs
There are also a number of other features that distinguish different types of walk-in shower stalls. Here's a brief overview:
- Factory-made walk-in showers or shower stalls: Most of the walk-in shower stalls in use today are manufactured units made from reinforced fiberglass or acrylic material. One-piece factory-made units are installed in new construction, though it's usually necessary to install a multi-piece walk-in shower stall in remodeling. Seats, shelves and cubbyholes are frequently cast into the walls of factory-made walk-in showers. A shiny, gel-coated finish resists staining and makes the stall surfaces easy to clean. Manufactured walk-in shower units come in different sizes and colors, with different wall design features.
- Custom-made walk-in showers: The opposite of a factory-made walk-in shower is a walk-in shower made on site. With this type of walk-in shower, we will frame the walls and floor of the shower and installs masonry backing or base material along with a drain and waterproof membranes. We then finish the shower walls and floor with tile.
- Accessible showers: While any walk-in shower could be described as "accessible," some units have special features designed to accommodate individuals with physical disabilities. For this reason, this type of walk-in shower is sometimes referred to as "barrier-free," "handicap-accessible," or "ADA-compliant." (ADA stands for American Disabilities Act.)
- Glass-enclosed walk-in showers: An accessible walk-in shower is most likely to have a shower curtain that can be pulled aside to provide easy access to the shower. Other walk-in showers (especially custom-made showers) are fitted with sleek, frameless glass doors that keep water inside the shower stall. Still other walk-in showers may not require doors at all because of their configuration or because of the bathroom's design.
