At 69 I decided to install these myself. This is one of two windows. Started at 9 am, removing all glass from the old casements and then with a saws all, removed the aluminum frames. Cleaned and wedged 2 new glass block windows in position and cemented joints. You may need a second hand inside to help position and wedge in place. Used 1-60 pound bag of Quickrete Mortar Mix. . Completed at 2 with a good lunch. Some prep work for wedges and spacers the day before. Trimmed inside the following day. What an improvement. No more cold air this winter. Lets the light in, with privacy. Sorry, I would have taken a before picture if I would have known of this review earlier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Temptol Easy Install to replace old aluminum awning windows
Windows cam very well protected and arrived in good condition. The quality of the windows was better than I expected for the price. Window is made with real glass block and clear silicon between the blocks which make it a very good looking window. The window vent is also made with double pane glass and has a rubberized gasket to help seal when closed.
Installation was very easy. Just used a sawzall to cut out the old aluminum framed window that was there. Cleaned and prepped the opening, shimmed the window into place and mortared it in. Start to finish took about an hour.
Makes a huge difference over the old awning style windows that were original to the house. I will probably save as much as I spent on these windows in one heating season!

The hardest part of this project is determining the exact dimensions of the opening and whether to keep or remove the metal frame from the builder grade windows. The windows look great and were easy to install. A big improvement in energy efficiency, security and appearance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silverhound79 Excellent upgrade for basement windows
This is a high quality window. It was packaged extremely well for home delivery. Keep in mind there isn't any kind of nailing flange or frame around the unit. It is all glass. Remove old window, install and center this window in opening with shims, and grout into place. Lay a bed of grout on the bottom and set window into it...pushing down and centering at same time. Then shim if necessary to hold into place. Use a small tringlular trowel and a pointing tool to fill all voids around window. Shims can be removed when the window is secure and fill those areas as well. Smooth the exterior to your liking. Interior side can be done the same way or trimmed out to match your decor. A high quality grout is probably best choice because it doesn't shrink. Grout is what is used to erect and set large concrete panels for warehouses and office buildings. If it's good for them, it'll work for your basement window. It's easy to use. Just mix it to a putty type consistency and not too wet or runny. The biggest tip is to keep protective covering on the window screen part of the window during installation. Also, use some "frog" green tape, and tape the perimeter of the window. This will lessen the chance of getting grout on the glass. Keep a wet rag handy for wiping off "goofs". Then, enjoy your window.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by billr Good functional window allowing light and privacy
We used the window to allow some light into a small bathroom. The window seems well made, but unlike most exterior windows, there is no flashing of any kind, so you are on your own to secure it into your opening and make the opening water tight on the outside. I used vinyl brick mold on the outside to provide a good surface for a water tight seal. Adhesive caulk and the inside casing keep the window in place.
