I love the look of glass blocks in bathrooms. Is there any problems with mold using glass blocks?

Of course the glass blocks won't have a problem with mold because they are glass. One of the keys many people don't consider when doing a glass block wall is to use the best available grout. We recommend using a urethane grout because it does not absorb moisture like standard sanded grout. The other thing we recommend is to use a vinyl stacking system which makes minimizes the amount of grout or mortar that is used significantly. I will include a link to our glass block shower and shower accessory pages below that will provide you with a greater amount of information on these subjects and also show some installation videos using these systems.
