"I contacted
about an estimate on replacing my old windows with glass block. He went out to my house the same day and called me with the" estimate. He told me he would be able to perform the work in about a week and a half. I called him a week later and confirmed that he was coming out to do the work. He came out and did the work in a professional manner.

"
answered my initial call right away and scheduled an appointment to come out and look at the job. His schedule allowed him to come by even" earlier than we had scheduled. He gave me an estimate and an installation date within the week.
arrived right on time and finished the job cleanly and professionally. I was very pleased with his work, and would certainly recommend him. I was particularly impressed with the fact that
lays the block himself, on site.

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.

Glass Block Installation reviews in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Glass Blocks Provider Name Locked
from sales was very punctual on a Saturday morning visit for an estimate to replace 5 basement windows with glass block. The quote was far lower than the expected number in my head since I had done the research for the cost of doing the work on my own.
The company makes their own glass blocks so they can pass on the savings to cover some labor costs.

also came on a Saturday morning and not only finished early but did an amazing job. He was very articulate about the mortar around the windows and didn't leave any mess.
I'm so glad I didn't attempt this task and let the professionals handle it.

is very professional. He came on time, worked hard, removed the old windows, installed the new glass blocks and vents, and cleaned up. It's one of my best experience with a contractor.

There was a fairly big goof when they came on installation date and the windows weren't sized correctly (salesman's error). Therefore it set us back around 10 days to get them in but after that I was satisfied with the job and the price. Would've given A except for that. Also, I think more communication between office and customer would be good. I called couple of times to check on days coming because of rain etc.and felt they should've called me to give me notice.

I found out the vents did not need to be replaced. He cleaned them and oiled them, and got them working and did not take advantage of the fact that I thought the vents were broken. He told me how to better maintain them so that they will open and shut normally.

Everything was great. Service was fast and friendly, the quality of the work was excellent, and the price was reasonable.

The installers arrived basically on time and went directly to work. Removed the four windows from the one room and then replaced them with the glass block windows. While the one installer laid the block the second fellow removed the windows from the second room. All the demolition waste was removed. As the installer finished a window the second fellow would follow up and finish the outside of the window installation. The installation went smoothly and fairly quickly. They cleaned up well but there was dust. Even though they swept the floors there was dust that couldn't be picked up without a vacuum or a mop. Would recommend to the customer to cover or remove items from the room being worked on.
