Compare Installation Guarantees to Years in Business - Did you ever buy from someone who gave you a 'lifetime guarantee' only to call them one year later for service and find a disconnected phone number? If you"re looking to have your block windows professionally installed by a contractor ask them how many years they have been in business and how many glass block window projects they"ve completed. If you"re not comfortable asking these questions consider joining a consumer rating service like Angie"s list to get the straight scoop on your potential contractor.
Buy Prefabricated Window Panels Factory Direct - Since a large percentage of block windows are made to order due to sizing differences with the existing windows being replaced, why invest unnecessary time going to supply yards and retailers who rarely sell custom sized block windows? As long as you have your opening sizes the windows can be prefabricated and shipped directly to you anywhere in the United States. There is generally a substantial price saving to you versus having to find a skilled mason to put the windows together and the quality is higher since the windows are built in the factory, not at the project site. Consumers in states like North & South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Louisiana where masons are harder to find have found this service beneficial.
Another suggestion is don"t use curtains and if you need privacy then fit a roller blind with moisture resistant fabric.
If you want to work with the shape (talk about making life hard for yourself) and have curved top curtains that drapes back into tie backs, then this what you must do. On the width measure every 15cm across the window put markers on the window sill. Then note the full window width.
Window treatment ideas for this kind of window are to not set the curtains to wide off the window. Probably only 15cm at most. Even though you have a lot of fabric to stack back when they open. You can use tie backs to hold them off the window. Another option is to use a thinner fabric.
