3 Reasons Why You Can Install a Glass Wall Yourself
Glass block walls are a great way to add a unique, custom decorator look to your home. Most people think installing a glass block wall requires a lot of space and a call to a local contractor to hire a mason, and most masons hate installing glass block or brick because they think it is difficult.
This is a myth; glass block is not as difficult to install as you think it is. These days there is a variety of pre-fabricated glass block “kits” that include everything you need to install your own glass wall yourself. This makes it easy for weekend warriors to complete this do-it-yourself project and install a gorgeous glass block wall.
