Frequently Asked Questions

How do you replace a broken window?
Unless you have the specialist skills to do so, it is best to leave window glass repair and replacement to the professionals. They will be able to safely remove the broken glass from the window seams, measure the windowpane opening and obtain a new piece of glass cut slightly smaller to fit inside.
Can you repair broken glass? 
While with some glass, repairs may be possible, other glass pieces are just too delicate or complicated to repair, causing the entire window to be replaced. To help you decide what needs to be done, contact a window glass replacement professional, and have them take a look. 
What does it cost for glass block installation? 
On average, glass block installation can cost between $100 - $300* for a small window. Larger glass block installations can cost upwards of $3000*.
Are glass block installations cheaper than windows? 
In some cases, glass block windows are less expensive. They are particularly popular for bathrooms, as they let light in without anyone being able to see inside. However, many homeowners prefer the more contemporary look of frosted or decorative glass, which essentially has the same effect.
