"The representative who came to my house for the measurements was polite, very professional, and punctual. No sales pressure whatsoever. The three men who came to my house to install" the windows were also on time, professional, and polite, even though the temperature outside was 9 degrees F that morning. They did a beautiful job and I would recommend this company highly.

"My husband and I have had some bad experiences with contractors in the past so doing business withD Glass Block was truly a refreshing experience! From the beginning until the end of" this job, everyone from the company was extremely professional while focusing on delivering a quality product with great customer service. We got a quick accurate, estimate (from a representative who made us feel like he could easily become part of the family because he was so personable), were well informed of their product, were quoted a great price, had the job scheduled and done promptly. Every interaction with each individual from the company, whether in person or on the phone, was timely and respectful! And the windows look great too! I would definitely refer others I know to this company.

Glass block

As strong and secure as masonry, yet able to allow light to pass through, glass block can be a great option for bathrooms, basements and other projects.

From what I can see in a picture of the item, there does not appear to be anything special about the glass. unless it has an Ikea emplem on it or special etching or something, any normal window glass replacement company like Speedy Glass or such should be able to cut and install replacement glass - probably about $100-300 depending on whether a pane or entire door-sized panel of glass, depending on which style you have.
?
Just about every sliding door I have installed is put in in sections. If it is a brand name you may be able to purchase a replacement panel from a lumber yard or call a glass company to replace just the glass. I have seen some windows and doors that have a "welded" plastic frame that is next to impossible to replace just the glass. I hate to give estimated costs on labor or material since they very by manufacturer and regional prices but I would think you are in the $250-350 range in labor plus cost of glass or panel.

Could be held on with concealed mirror fasteners (usually a clip or notched "button" design, with very litle showing outside the mirror, or none showing if has trim around it, or with large dabs or swipes of mirror adhesive or liquid nails. The former leaves minimal damage when removed - no more than a heavy duty picture hanger, the latter leaves divots in drywall, as you surmised, and holes in the drywall if a piece of plywood is not used as a prypoint when prying it off.

 

If you want to try to save the mirrors, then a glass and mirror installer is needed - they can remove them from the hangers, or cut the adhesive with wire saw - though that will add probably 2-3 hours labor per room. Then you would need a painter who also does minor drywall repairs.

 

If not saving the mirrors, then I suspect you could get a Handyman to pop them off, repair the divots, and repaint. Otherwise, a Painter would probably be glad to do it and repair the damage and repaint - just be prepared for a hefty charge for duct tape - like $100-200, because that is the best way to do this - duct tape the surface completely, pry the mirrors off (commonly breaking them), then cut through the tape to make pieces of glass manageable and of a size to fit in garbage can or box for hauling out. Be sure to emphasize PLYWOOD protection for floors, overlain by canvas or plastic, when removing the mirrors - drop a good sized piece and you have significant flooring damage.

 

Here is a prior response for a similar situation, including the same suggestions about removal, but also a bunch of ideas of how to leave the mirrors and cover or integrate them - which can be a LOT cheaper than paying a two-man crew for a day to remove mirrors, depending on solution you choose.

 

 http://answers.angieslist.com/Need-rid-wall-mirrors--q67621.aspx

 

this is probably a quarter to full days job to remove depending on how fastened and if saving or not, so about $200-800 range. Drywall repair and painting probably about another $150-250 range, so ballpark numbers - pushing $300-400 if mirrors come off easy (bracketed) or can be scrapped, more like a thousand $ if saving mirrors.

Your Search the List category is Glass and Mirrors - the Speedy Glass type company that does home and auto glass replacement.

 

If the glass is held in with window putty (a doughy tan or white putty) or by a wood trim piece all around it pinching it in place, then you can probably fix it yourself for about $15 piece of glass at a glass replacement place or somehome improvement/lumberyards.

 

If the glass is multiple-pane, or encased in a metal frame, then not easy to do yourself, though in some situations with single-pane you could remove the glass mounting frame entirely, use larger glass, and install with window putty. Double or triple pane you need then to fabricate a new "glazing unit" for you - the glass layers all enclosed in the metal encasing unit.If you are going to pay for that, might as well have them put it in too.

Called and got an estimate, the salesman was very nice and answered all of my questions, when the installers came out to install my windows they were very nice, I watched them remove my old windows and place in the glass block windows, and they didn't mind me asking questions as they went along. It only took about two hours and when they were finished the cleaned up the area.

Hall did our kitchen 3 years ago and I had no reservations about calling them again. I don't even bother getting estimates anymore. I don't want the cheapest contractor, I want the best. These guys stand by their work and will come out to fix things even a year after the job was completed. And they are willing to go an extra step if necessary. They've even come out on weekends to get a job done.

Estimator kept his appointment on time and gave a detailed description of options to replace deteriorating steel and glass basement windows with
Baltimore  Glass Blocks Provider Name Locked
. At 200 per window this was an excellent option to solving the problems of deterioration and weather proofing. The windows were fabricated withing 10 days of signing the contract and installed in about 5 hours. There was no mess and no hassle. I would high recommend them.
