Questions & Answers

How do you anchor the Windows

Asked by: Mooch
Installed this window Sunday 5/2. Removed rotted 100 yr old wood frame and awning window, cleaned the block surface, dry fitted the window, wedged it from the bottom and top to hold it in place then used mortar-type S to set the window.. Easy.

Are they rated for hurricane for Florid installation?

Asked by: ConcernedMama
No. A hurricane resistant window with a large/small impact rating must be built with the Thickset 90 glass blocks with the KWiK'N EZ Rigid Track Installation System. There would not be a vent in these windows.

GuardWise windows are made with clear glass in the Decora, IceScapes or Delphi pattern glass. They are not available in colors.

on your 31"X23.5" window, is 7/8" gap on each side too much for just mortar or do I need to use something else with it?

Asked by: groundhog
Based on your measurements, you have a 25-1/4" opening. (23.5 + .875 + .875 = 25.25). The actual size of our 32x24" window is 31x23-1/4" and so you would have a 1" gap on either side. If you go to the next size up - a 32x26" window, the actual size of that window is 31x25 which would give youa 1/8" gap on either side. Assuming that your opening is plumb and square, this window would be your better option. Our maximum recommended mortar joint is 5/8" and our minumim recommended mortar joint is 1/8."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic replacement windows for our basement These are substantial, quality windows that arrived quickly and safely at our little three-unit condo building. (Keep in mind the delivery is a sidewalk drop.) Our contractor was impressed and so were we, plus we're happy they're made in the USA. Our building is old so it wasn't a matter of just removing old windows and popping in new ones. There was crumbling old mortar and deteriorated wood to deal with. Even so, it was not a difficult process. The Decora pattern is beautiful and we get both the light and privacy we wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decora Glass Block Window with Vent I bought this window to be used in my bathroom that I am remodeling. It is in our shower area and I thought it would look good with the ceramic tiles surrounding it. I was right! It looks great and the vent makes it perfect for a bathroom. It lets in all the light you could possibly want without the neighbors being able to see in. The vent allows the steam from the shower to be vented out even while your in the shower. According to my carpenter it is the perfect depth for the wall and it was easy to frame in. I've already recommended it to a couple people I know that are also remodeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Versatile! I'm so happy with my window now. This prefab is such a great idea. I turned it sideways for a bathroom narrow window and it looks good. The vent is next to the shower and it has an elegant finished look. We framed it out and stuck it in the old metal casing from a louvered window. Just silicone and paint. Perfect custom fit. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Window We purchased this window to replace an old one in our bathroom. The picture does not do this window justice. It is gorgeous and lets so much more light in. The vent is terrific for letting a little airflow in to a steamy bathroom, while still providing security. It really is stunning. We totally remodeled a 40 year old bathroom (major improvements), but the window gets the most compliments far and away! Very easy to install - once the old window was out, this one went in very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i LOVE this window in my new bathroom I cannot attest to installation, as I paid my contractor to do it :) I had him install the vent section 'upside-down' so the opening is at the bottom which allows steam to escape and doesn't allow water to enter the opening. I LOVE glass cubes, and that is the FIRST and easiest decision I made in my bathroom upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job without frills I had previously purchased and installed two of these units which I picked up at the Home Depot in Delafield WI. I was really satisfied with the way they were easily installed. They provide a much tighter seal from the elements than did the original storm and screen wood windows. I would be willing to pay a slightly higher price for a better and higher quality operating window being a part of the glass block unit.. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bathroom Window This window is perfect in my bathroom. It's located in the shower area but easy to wipe down and has a great vent for air without the build up of water in a regular open window. You can leave the vent open while not at home without the worry of a break in. It totally sparkles with the sun coming through it, I ordered one for my my neighbors as well. Luv Luv Luv it. Will order one for our Colorado cabin as well.
