Glass Block Basement Windows: Say Goodbye to Flooded Basements

It is a nerve wracking thought for homeowners to keep their basements safe during extreme weather. The threat of hurricanes are becoming increasingly a concern for people in different areas of the country such as the Northeast. Since Hurricane Sandy’s immense damage in 2012, people in the Metro area have become more vigilant. The devastation recent Hurricane Ida caused this past year have homeowners on alert and asking, what can I do to keep my basement safe during floods?

Glass block provides basements with a very strong protection again flood damage. Glass block is made of masonry which is why they are extremely durable. Glass block basement windows work to seal in your space from floodwaters. In many cases we will prefabricate the glass block into panels for easy instillation at job site. These custom built glass block units are fabricated in our glass block warehouse before we come out to install.

 FEMA provides information on recommended building materials for floods. Glass block is a Category 5. A Category 5 rating means that glass block has a high resistance to flood damage from moving water. This type of building material is also a lot easier to clean up post flood. The glass block used to secure flooded basements cannot have vents, rather it will need to be a solid glass block.

The glass block we use has two particular patterns of your choice: wavy pattern or ice pattern glass block that are hurricane resistant and are for residential buildings.

If you would like to learn how you can floodproof your home, please reach out to the team at Eastern Glass Block. You can contact us today at 800-635-1226 or email us at for a free estimate.
