Glass block windows are an attractive money saving window option. These beautiful windows not only eliminate drafts, but also provide privacy and keep out prowlers. Acrylic block windows look very similar to real glass block windows, but over time, the differences become all too clear as acrylic block windows can become cloudy, faded, scratched or cracked.
Many homeowners enjoy glass block as a window choice because it provides increased privacy. Today's homes are being built closer together because land costs continue to escalate. For this reason, homeowners are looking for windows that offer privacy. But finding a cost effective window that provides privacy can be difficult. Popular glass block options include Icescapes or Delphi from Pittsburgh Corning or Ice or Pristal from Mulia.
Another perk to glass block is that it reduces your heating and cooling costs. In fact, glass block windows are more than 9 times more energy efficient than single pane glass and provide a combination of obscurity and style many vinyl replacement windows do not offer. Also, keep in mind that with glass block windows there is no maintenance needed since the windows are either mortared in or nailed into the framed walls in the property.
