One of CB Showers’ frameless shower enclosures

CB Showers (CB stands for “custom built”) has been designing and building custom frameless glass shower enclosures and mirrors for clients throughout the San Francisco Peninsula since 1986. The company’s San Carlos showroom houses a variety of enclosures to highlight design, glass and hardware options. Its professional staff can assist clients in the selection process and handle all aspects of an order, including installation.

President Telly Sionides teams with founder and Vice President Bruce Downs to offer frameless glass enclosures as a top choice for building professionals and homeowners, and after 30 years, they’ve earned a solid industry reputation for quality and service. “We try hard to provide exactly what each customer wants,” says Mr. Sionides. “We’ve built our reputation not just on doing difficult, custom work, but also on providing the best possible customer service, and our clients appreciate and respect that.”

CB Showers also offers standard models for secondary bathrooms and handles a variety of interior glasswork, including custom specialty mirrors, countertops, bar area glass and colorful backsplashes. In addition, it’s a purveyor of the award-winning Diamon-Fusion®, a nanotechnology glass pore sealant that helps maintain the beauty of glass and dramatically reduces maintenance efforts.

Company Philosophy

“Our goal is to provide our clients with superior quality products and exceptional service. They desire and appreciate the best, so we work hard to meet and exceed their expectations. We don’t compromise on quality, safety or service, and we’re always looking for innovative ways of doing business.”
