    Hi all

    Does anyone have any recommended companies for supply and install of shower screens in Perth? This is for new builds.

    Is it much more expensive to go frameless or semi frameless?

    How much lower sales price or less rent will you get?

    Dunno. I'm thinking it'll make no difference to how much they could rent for, and negligible difference to end value. Could be wrong.

    I've used direct glass a few times and been happy, pricing was good as a partner of mine puts a fair bit of work through them but not sure how they're priced normally vs the rest.

    personally ive gone with semi frame less even for $1m properties and never heard anyone have an issue with it, fully framed to semi is a small outlay for a big improvement, fully framed is quite a lot more and is better but imo not justifiable in most cases.

    think of it as economy vs business vs first, most will be happy with business and the extra spent on first is arguably wasted

    A lot of new designs are scrapping shower screens, tiling a brick wall and leaving one end open.

    Semi frameless is way cheaper than frameless and still look good, Britone are quite reasonable.

    And no glass to clean repeatedly too which is probably the best benefit

    Yep me too. Some of them are quite nice and saves big $$. Never had any negative impact to my knowledge.

    What did you end up going for, no screen?

    Nah. Went with semi frameless. That saving is the difference between my lowest quote and the builder's quote plus margin.
