I'm putting new tile in so I took my aluminum frame off.
I can either paint it myself and put it back together, or
use a contractor to put in a new one. a contractor would charge $1000 to $1500 to put a new one in.
But I don't want to paint it if its not going to work.
I have all the old aluminum pieces in gold, and I want to paint it the oil rubbed look. home depot has a spray that will work.
The product from HD will be somewhat of a simulation of ORB.
And there's still going to be the wear issue.
Anyone who can disassemble a shower frame and install tile can install a shower frame.
Would this work --
Buy a new shower enclosure in ORB and install it yourself?
SO are you saying I should go out and buy ORB aluminum and replace the gold aluminum?
And install it yourself.
The directions are usually good to excellent.
And most manufacturers have customer support to help with install.
