Basement windows that are secure and looks great

Many times when a customer would like the security, energy efficiency, durability and privacy of a glass block basement window from Masonry & Glass Systems we have an existing window that has problems. This buck frame window is rusting and should be removed but the inside of the basement is finished and removing the steel frame would result in interior damage to the drywall.

So, how do you provide the customer with a solution that accomplishes his and her goals at the least possible cost? Please note the middle photo and you will see that we have installed a wood backing that will provide a solid surface so that aluminum coil can be professionally bent to cover and protect the steel window from further rusting. This happens after the window is secured to the metal frame. Finally white silicone caulking is used to seal the new aluminum coil to the concrete and the glass block window. In the after photo you see the result. A secure glass block window that looks great and succeeds in pleasing our customer.
