A Glass Block Shower Is Re-Built In Cumberland, Maine
This glass block shower looked great when it was first installed. The fact that the original installer used glue instead of mortar to set the glass block most likely lead to the mold that had infiltrated the joints. The gluing method had not been discovered until we attempted to remove the bottom coarse alternately as to remove the mold. The structural integrity was compromised due to the lack of mortar. When reinstalling the glass block, proper measures were taken to eliminate the mold issue, such as using mortar as opposed to glue.It may cost a little more to do things properly but it will save you in the long run from having to rebuild.
