Glass Block Install
 Part of channel(s): Liveleakers (promoted)

A glass block install for a church in Erie, Pa . These windows were made and installed with white type s mortar. Not silicone caulking like you find a the big chain stores or even some "Other" glass block companies. Glass block was designed to be assemble and installed with mortar and by doing it this way you can embed wire reinforcing in the mortar joint for max security. Also when you use a mortar joint the block are not in contact with each other and there fore don't cause tension damage "Cracked Block ' In my climate Erie , Pa you need to have the ability to absorb expansion and contraction do to freeze/thaw cycles you just dont get that with a but joint of caulking. Also would like to mention that this window is 100% AMERICAN MADE, The Mfg of the block is Pittsburgh Corning. The Pattern is Decora Thin Line. I hope you enjoy and thanks for watching. Lou
