Yes, we do glass block very well thank you….

February 1, 2012

On a recent job a General contractor asked “do you do glass block”, the answer was “yes, we do glass block”… One unique thing about this glass block job was at the base of the block where it meets the dam it was installed “flush”.

Which means where the dam meets block the dam is typically at least 1 inch wider creating a ledge on both sides. The General contractor and I took painstaking measures to prep the dam to come out flush with the block (the same thickness) this created a very awesome look and it is the first time I have done it this way..


Here are a few pics.

The wall tile of the shower was a 12″x24″ porcelain set on a vertical linear pattern

The block was 8″x8″ clear glass with Customs Linen grout to match the grout of the shower. The shower floor was a sheet mounted rock.

This is the exterior view…and a good shot of the “flush” block to dam transition…

This pick really shows how the the block is flush with the dam…

The main bath floor was done in a 16″ Limestone….
