Whether building a new home or remodeling an older one, there are several things to consider when choosing real glass blocks for your project. Pacific Glass Block Windows has several options from which to choose, and we are more than happy to help you choose the right glass block in order to achieve the look and functionality you desire.
All glass block windows let in light, but what other function do you want them to perform? Do you want them to be an artistic statement? Are you wanting your glass block windows to provide privacy and safety while helping with energy costs? All of our real glass block windows are energy saving, which can help reduce your heating and cooling costs.
Safety and privacy are important to us here at Pacific Glass Block Windows and we will customize the order for your project to achieve these tasks. Pacific Glass Block Windows offer two thicknesses of real glass blocks. Our economical Builder Series are 2 inches thick and our Premier Series are 3 inches thick. Both are strong and durable, and are very low maintenance glass blocks. Our Builder Series comes with heavy-duty extruded vinyl frames or optional powder-coated aluminum, and our Premier Series comes with powder-coated thermally enhanced aluminum frames, each in your choice of block styles and frame colors.
Choosing a pattern for the room in which you are going to install the real glass block windows is also a must. Pacific Glass Block Windows has five patterns in the Premier Series and three patterns in the Builders Series. Each of the patterns gives a different effect.
The Wave pattern is the most popular for basement windows. This pattern offers privacy while still allowing light to filter in.
The Clarity pattern does not offer privacy and are normally used areas that need to be well lit, such as kitchens and laundry rooms.
Ice and Frosted patterned glass block windows are perfect for bathrooms, as they allow privacy and light.
The Diamond glass block pattern provides maximum privacy while dispersing light throughout the room in which they are installed.
The patterns listed above are just a few of those that Pacific Glass Block Windows carries. Please check out our website for more real glass block pattern and frame colors.
