How to Fix a Gap in a Frameless Glass Door

Save

A frameless glass door is an attractive choice for the shower, but it becomes significantly less attractive when water continually drips from it. If you notice that water is dripping from a long gap between the door and the wall, or the door and the edge of the shower, take steps to block the gap. A door seal strip fitted to the glass door fills the gap while maintaining the elegant look of the frameless glass door.

Things You'll Need

  • Glass cleaner
  • Adhesive door seal strip
  • Utility knife
  • Clean the edge of the door at the gap with a glass cleaner and allow it to dry thoroughly.

  • Measure the length of the door where it needs to be sealed.

  • Cut an adhesive door seal strip to the measurements that you found in step 2 using a utility knife. Door seal strips have a U-shaped profile, allowing them to clasp the door securely.

  • Peel off the plastic strip, revealing the adhesive edge in the cup of the U.

  • Press the door seal strip to the edge of the glass door.

  • Allow the adhesive to cure for 24 hours. Avoid using the door until it is fully cured.

Tips & Warnings

  • In a pinch, you can also apply weather stripping to the gap.
