In my new shop, I have lots of broken, single paned windows. I wanted to
replace them with something better. I started with glass block. My buddy
has a bunch of 12" blocks that I can get cheap ($4 a block). But with the
amount of windows (none of which are easily divisible by 1 foot) I am
looking for alternatives.
First off, I'm in love with glass block. I love the security, insulation,
light, and privacy they offer. Plus, no maintenance once installed. But
I'll need over 200 blocks to be installed to do *SOME* of the windows (the
more important ones)
So, does anyone have any options (hopefully low cost) for redoing windows
(most are about 6'(L)X4'(H)) in a concrete block building? It needs to be
insulating (I have plumbing in there) and it should let in light.
Replacement widows of this size start at about $250 EACH and go up from
Does anyone know a good way to "take up" about 3" to 4" of space while
installing glass block? Wood?
