"The serviceman was very professional and friendly. He worked diligently and completed the work and did a great job. One of the things that impressed me with this" gentleman was he was here when he said he would be, no nonsense a good worker. We really appreciated him and would recommend the company to everyone.

"I'm happy with the windows and that's the main thing but once the weather gets warmer I'd like someone to take a second look because the finish doesn't" look as smooth as I thought it should be with the cementing.

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.

I'd recommend E&B Masonry to anyone. Professional, good work, honest, and fairly priced.

Ed was prompt in dropping by to provide a quote for the work, and was thorough in explaining what needed to be done and why. Although he couldn't perform the work right away due to freezing temperatures, he communicated throughout the waiting period, and promptly scheduled as soon as it was warm enough to do the work. He was professional throughout, both in communication and in providing thorough documentation of the contract, insurance coverage, etc.

The quality of his work was great. I don't know how his team managed to hoist a heavy glass block window up 35 feet of scaffolding, but they managed to get it done and installed properly. Despite breaking out the old window and having shattered glass fall everywhere in the process, they cleaned up both the inside and outside of my house, and there wasn't a shard of glass to be found anywhere after they completed the job. He did an excellent job of covering the inside of our home with sheeting to keep the dust and glass out of our house. Ed also did some drywall repair work for our downstairs neighbor, whom we accidentally flooded due to a faulty hose on our humidifier. He was very pleased with the quality of the work.

Great job - highly recommend!

Scheduled us within a matter of days. Arrived exactly when they said they would. Took extra effort to make sure the windows looked great and cleaned up after themselves. Everyone we dealt with was polite & efficient. Bill was exactly as estimated. Very pleased with the whole experience.

They did a fantastic job. They were so wonderful to go up there and never charged me extra. They did beautiful work. I had them two years ago. It's so nice now and I can do the laundry down there now without turning the lights on. I was really, really happy. They did such a nice job. I had only one problem were it was leaking when it was raining and they came right away. They came out on a Sunday and they fixed it. I recommend them because they're reliable.

We had this company install glass block windows in the late 1980's or early 1990's. The work was well done. We were pleased. In Feb. 2015, we had basement foundation work done.(by another company) and they needed to have ventilation in the basement due to all of the dust. They lost the glass inserts to our glass blocks vents. So all we had was a screen to the out side. It is cold here in Wisconsin and having your basement windows open is a bad idea. I called

to (as they had originally installed the window) to see if I could get a replacement cover. They no longer make them but was told I could replace the vents. I was told vents would cost $175.00 each. I have 5 windows and that would have been expensive. But

came over to see what I needed to fix the situation. He was honest and said I could go to the local hardware store and get plexiglass to cover it. The plexiglass works just fine and it only cost me $9.00 total. I would recommend this company highly.

We so appreciated his commitment to do a great job as well as his positive attitude...a refreshing difference from most contractors these days. We are very satisfied customers and his outstanding work speaks for itself...no job is too big and no job is too small!

Great replacement for 55 year old original windows. The price was over 400.00 cheaper than

windows from Atlas ( who had done windows and wraps at our prior house and had done a great job for what was, in my opinion, a very reasonable price). Glass block is just a less expensive option with the added benefit of security, great light without the need for blinds - depending on your block choice- and energy efficiency. The whole process was seamless and professional.
