Glass block windows offer several unique benefits that simply can’t be found in regular windows. Your leading glass block expert, WMGB Home Improvement, gives you a closer look at what these advantages are:
Glass blocks windows are stationary installations. Just like quality siding, they do not require maintenance beyond a wash with a garden hose or an equally quick wipe on the indoor side with a soft cloth. This makes glass block windows ideal for spaces that require natural lighting, but that are too tight for regular window cleaning like basements or rooms that do not require ventilation. Its inherent durability also makes it ideal for areas with windows that would require support during storms.
Protect Your Privacy
The most common type of glass blocks features wavy surfaces. When used as glass block windows, this prevents anyone from peeking in and provides complete privacy without compromising the amount of natural light that gets into the room. This makes glass block windows are ideal for bathrooms and other rooms that need constant privacy. Plus, glass blocks are energy-efficient, being several times thicker than typical window glazing. By slowing down heat transfer, they can help you save on your energy consumption.
In addition to the popular wavy option, WMGB Home Improvement also offers other options, including translucent Ice glass blocks that provide better privacy and the Diamond glass blocks that feature a symmetrical pattern. We also offer Clarity glass blocks if you want something that lets you see through them.
Glass blocks are much thicker than typical window glazing and are mortared into the wall during installation. Unless you’re using a wrecking ball, it is virtually impossible for anything to break these windows, giving you the perfect protection from airborne debris as well as eliminating the need for storm shutters.
