New Construction on the Rise and Home Owners Have Modern Expectations

The recent August 2013 report from the NAHB showed the improvement continuing in single-family construction in the United States. This slow but steady improvement started in early 2012 and all four census regions showed increases. This report is especially significant because it specifically reports on owner-occupied home construction.

We recognize that the families building or buying new construction today have modern expectations for their building materials, such as energy efficiency, environmental responsibility, and personal security.

A building material that can assist in meeting the expectations of these families is Glass Block.

As a proven, natural material, glass block can add beauty and inspiration while playing a significant role in sustainable design and security. Glass block is 100 percent recyclable, inert, low maintenance, and highly durable. Yet its dynamic relationship with light provides the opportunity to create both aesthetically pleasing and energy-efficient spaces. In addition, no other glass product provides the same security as Glass Block.

When planning a practical and yet creative home design, explore the design possibilities and installation alternatives for Glass Block. Call us at Eastern Glass Block. We have over 20 years of experience designing and installing Glass Block. We love to share our knowledge. (PH: 800.635.1226)
