More on Block Glass Windows Prices and Costs
Determining the overall cost for your block glass windows goes beyond the price of the window itself. Consider the cost of other materials, like vertical and horizontal spacer strips, silicone caulk, and lacquer thinner. Small jobs may qualify as a DIY project, but for large glass walls and complex installations, consider the extra labor cost of a professional contractor.
