Buyer Checklist for Shower Screens

There are lots of shower screen suppliers around. Here are some questions to ask to help you make the right choice.

Check the materials

Question: Does your supplier use laminated or toughened glass in their shower screens? Laminated glass shower screens can be installed with a shorter lead time, but over time the materials used in it can deteriorate and develop permanent ugly stains. This won't happen with toughened glass shower screens.

Betta's Solution: Our Betta Framed Screens, Betta Semi Framed, Evolution, Momentum and Frameless screens are made from toughened glass that meets Australian Standards and won't deteriorate.

Check installation

Question: How does your supplier plan on installing your shower screen?
Some companies use cheap installation techniques or skimp on the type of fittings they use. Your shower screen might look OK at first, but cheaper techniques mean a weaker end product and a shorter life.

Betta's Solution: We use top quality fittings and professional techniques to install all our shower screens, for a better finish and a longer life.


Check your rights

Question: Does your supplier have a licence number?
The Office of Fair Trading issues licence numbers to companies that meet certain criteria. This means that your consumer rights are being protected.

Betta's Solution: We hold a licence issued by the Office of Fair Trading (lic. no. 273679C).

Check legality

Question: For jobs over $5000

Betta Solution: For jobs over $5000 we always issue a contract along with a copy of the Office of Fair Trading's Consumer Building Guide.

Check reliability

Question: Does your supplier's offer seem too good to be true?
Then it probably is! Copycats offering inferior work at unrealistic prices are rife in the building industry. A lower price probably means lower quality materials, poor service - and possibly even a fly-by-night supplier who might let you down. Ask Betta Wardrobes and Shower Screens.

Check quality
