"
replaced approx 40" tall, 8" wide glass block wall that was aligning our staircase and had begun to break due to faulty materials" and installation by our builder (est approx 2005). Very happy with the quality and workmanship of the job - would highly recommend
for similar work.

"The finished product looks good, glass block and vent windows see to be very high quality construction. Double pain glass, smooth operation. They cleaned up fairly" well, but there was some dried cement and glass on the basement floor. They arrived less than 1 hour late due to confusing on their part as to which job was first that day. They finished in under 4 hours. The trucks they drove were not marked and in sad condition, but this did not effect the end product.

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.

Problems right from the start. The company rep that showed up at my house did not have brochures and prices of the doors available. Said he'd e-mail me the estimate. Next e-mail was from a company rep that said that before they could do an estimate, they needed my address and telephone number. But why didn't they just get it from the company rep that had been at my house?? Gave them the information but never heard back. A week later I called asking what the status of my estimate was and a lady there said she would forward my call to another lady who would get in touch with the rep that came to my house. She said she was sure someone would get back with me because she knew that the other office lady had put a reminder note on her desk to get with the company rep first thing in the morning. Five days later and still haven't heard anything. What's wrong? Are they putting me off because my job (2 doors) is too small and will end up being a money

arrived a week before install date to give an estimate. Very punctual (actually slightly early which was great) and provided a fee sheet for installation of glass block windows.
On day of install, punctual arrival and tidy preparation for installation of windows. Team was very efficient in the removal of 4 traditional frame windows in my basement and one elderly glass block window that was deteriorating. Clean-up and debris was hauled away. Team installed 5 windows in approximately 2 hours. Neat, efficient, professional team. I would rehire if I ever need additional glass block services.

and his worker arrived on time on Saturday, August 22nd, and finished the job within a short amount of time. I have never had basement windows before because the previous owner of my home boarded them up and so for 15 yrs, I have never "seen the light" from the outside in my basement. I have always had to turn on the basement light and now I no longer have to do this. I am so happy and thrilled at the job that
