"
was very good at getting back to me when I contacted him for an estimate. He came at exactly the time agreed upon.
" was good at giving updates on when the work could/would begin. He and his helper always came early and got right to work and were attentive to clean up. They were polite to neighbors and careful about parking spaces and property lines. He paid special attention to matching the old-style pointing on the stone wall to match my neighbor's ajoining wall...nice touch! The basement has never looked so good. The glass block basement windows are really keeping out drafts and it all feels solid. Its great to finally have a big patio in the backyard and to finally fix that terribly beat up walkway along the side of the house that has bugged me for years. It all looks good and neighbors are asking me for
' name and number. My Son used
for one of his rental properties and was so impressed that he recommended
for the work on my home.

"The team worked as a team. Very important! They arrived on time, began their work and continued until the job was completed. This was a two day job. They cleaned" up each day.
was there for a portion of each day. He made sure the glass block window was installed properly and made certain his team knew what the remaining job required.
was nice enough to do a few extra things for me which were not part of the contract. I compensated him for this. The men were respectful, pleasant, good natured, smart and knew what to do to complete the job satisfactorily. Quite a combination. Spectacular job well done.

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.

It went very smoothly,
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
the owner came to my house and measured my window. He explained what he would do. He told me he would get back to me with an estimate in 2 to 3 days which he did. The price was reasonable and I agreed to have the work done by his company. He said it would take a few days to build the window and for the widow to cure. He called me a few days later said it was finished and we set up a day for installation. Two of his employees came and installed it in about 2 hours. They did a great
job, they cleaned everything up when they were done, the window looks great they did a professional job and I am very satisfied with
their work and I would use them again.

were very professional and I was pleased with the quality of their work. The 4-man crew completed the job in 2 days. They worked skillfully and efficiently.

I live on an historical preservation block. My neighbors are not afraid to share opinions. Can you imagine a unanimous thumbs up on a contractor's work - that everyone sees every day? That's what
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
earned from me and my neighbors. The work was beautiful and the work experience was all positive. Because his Angie's list ratings were stellar, I had expected to wait for availability once I contacted him. I had to wait several months, but it was worth it, especially if you are particular. Regardless,
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
set my expectations about scheduling in advance and contacted me when he promised to. Refreshing. He and his workers were great - friendly, polite, knowledgeable, hard working (again, supported by neighbors' reports!) and communicated clearly about the work to be done - both at the time of the estimate and the time of doing the job. They handled a variety of tasks beautifully. When additional decision points arose, he contacted me and explained options clearly. While I have no expertise in the area, he educated me in a way that enable me to feel that I owned the process and the result. Kudos and thanks. p.s., He's busy. don't use him as a price point. Just use him to do the work.

We recently purchased our home which needed to have the above listed windows replaced. We selected
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
because we liked the design of their windows/vents and attention to our expectations. The salesperson (
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
) promptly scheduled an appointment for an estimate and was professional. An additional discount was offered at this time that caught us off-guard but the total seemed reasonable and we signed on with a down payment (the contract could be canceled with return of the deposit). We compared the overall price later to other companies and the price seemed competitive. We were contacted less than a week later in order to schedule the installation. We chose an appointment date convenient to our schedule and it occurred three weeks after the date of the estimate. We could have had the installation sooner but our schedules did not permit it. The installer (
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
) of the windows was very professional and polite. Normally, he would work with another employee but his coworker was recently injured. Despite working alone, he did an excellent job setting and finishing the windows. It took about 2 1/2 hours to remove the old windows and install the new block windows. He was very tidy and left no mess behind. We are very happy with the appearance of the new windows. The windows come with a limited lifetime warranty that includes free replacement of two blocks despite the cause of breakage and replacement of the vents if breakage occurs with abuse being an exception. We received an estimate for regular windows by another salesperson from
Philadelphia Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
and a previous customer discount applied. This estimate is good for 365 days and we are considering using them as well. No decision yet though!

I always deal and work with the same people every time. It's a good quality, family-owned business. The owner comes out and gives you an estimate and then they send out another person to take measurements for what needs to be done. They are very professional. Other people in my family use them and refer to them for work.

One of the big things about the work was that the party box was not done or part of the complete quote. I didn't know about party boxes but I felt it should have been included in the initial bid. The party box needed to be sanded down, repainted & re-done and when I asked about it, they told me they didn't know that were suppose to this & wanted to charge me an extra $500 to have this done. They also didn't seal both sides of the inside of the glass blocks with mortar & I didn't notice it until after I had signed off on the work. After a while, I felt like I couldn't trust these guys and they were a little antagonistic. I had questions about the work & they even threatened to cancel the work at one point. 90% of the work was good but I just wasn't happy with my overall experience with them and I would not use them again.
