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.

While cleaning our basement last month we found a crack in one of the glass block windows and called

because they have a lifetime guarantee on their windows. We have called them 8 times over the last month leaving a message each time to give us a call about the window and have never got a call back. I ended up calling Pittsburgh Glass myself and they did send me a new replacement window but I still need the work done to install it.

Very pleased with how great they look and it stops the drafts. They contacted me very soon after I purchased the deal thru Angie's list and within a week the windows were installed. The representative was very professional and informative. There were no high pressured sales pitches for upgrades or additional windows. I knew the price upfront when I purchased the deal, and then there was just a small additional fee for the dryer vent. It was all done very reasonably and now I love the look of my windows and feel more secure.

From start to finish, PERFECT & PLEASED!
New York Glass Blocks Provider Name Locked
with Vanguard visited my property within 2 days of my call. He explained all my options regarding the different types of glass and venting. I had concerns regarding diminished light which turned out to be unfounded. In fact, I have more light without giving up any privacy. He measured my windows and quoted me on the initial visit. His price was extremely fair and even threw in several vents at no charge. Within the week my 7 windows were constructed and installed. I came home and found that I indeed had additional light without giving up my privacy, the entire area was cleaned to perfection, the vents opened easily and allowed air to enter and circulate, and all the old debris was hauled away. I was so pleased with

, his product, and service that I ordered an additional 6 windows for my shop. Approximately 6 months later I have found that I no longer have any bugs or webs, my heating bill has reduced dramatically in both buildings, I no longer suffer any cold drafts and water seepage, and aesthetically, they are pleasing to the eye. On another note, the sense of security these windows give are priceless. On a personal note,

I'm just now writing this review as I had come across this company recently on Angie's List. They installed the glass block a couple years ago and I still get angry when I think about it.
The good
The windows look great. They were quick and on time.
The bad
They left glass EVERYWHERE. I even found pieces as long as my arm. Almost 2 years after they completed this job I'm still finding glass outside and in the basement. We have pets and a child. It's ridiculous this company was so careless.
I called them and was told I would get a call back but never did.
Stay away from them.

I set up a meeting to get an estimate at a new property.
They did not show up. They did not call.
I called the office after being stood up (in the cold).
The service rep transferred me to the sales rep. He claimed would
go to the property on his own and provide an estimate.
I never received that estimate or any follow up on my request or his promise.
This lack of responsiveness stole time out of my day. I could have been with my family instead of waiting in the cold for a man who
never showed.

Delayed Installation (signed contract on April 3 and Windows were installed June 26. However, once they started, they finished quickly. We had a couple of call-back items (not their fault, changes we wanted) and they were prmpt and profesisnal in responding.
Overall a great experience and great windows.
