"We are extremely happy with the job that
did replacing our old basement windows with new glass block windows. The new windows look fantastic and are markedly" more energy efficient than the old windows we had in the basement. Additionally,
was kind enough to use the same glass block that we have in our bathroom despite the fact that it's from a different manufacturer than the glass block they usually use. They also were very flexible in terms of the pattern of the glass block layout for the windows. Once they came out and gave us the final dimensions of the glass blocks that would be required to make our new windows, we were allowed to draw up our own pattern for placement of the glass blocks. They followed our design perfectly, and we are very impressed with the outcome. In terms of pricing and service,
was also top-notch. The price they charged for removing and disposal of the old windows and concrete ledges plus installation of the new windows was markedly lower than I anticipated. Since our windows have non-standard dimensions, it would have cost significantly more for us to purchase pre-made glass block windows from Home Depot and install them ourselves. Installation day was also a breeze. I took an extended lunch break and met them at my home. Since they pre-fabricate the windows at their own facility, they were all ready to remove the old windows and install the new ones when I met them at my home. In total, I only missed 1 and 1/2 hours of work. They crew that did the work was extremely polite, punctual, and professional. Overall, we are very happy with our decision to hire
to replace our basement windows, and we would hire them again for future projects.

"Communication was great;
was very responsive, professional, and courteous. Came out for an estimate when he said he would. The price was right in line with" another company's estimate. The work was started and completed as scheduled. Very good work, did a good job of cleanup afterwards. I would use
again, highly recommended.

"Prompt response to request for scheduling an estimate. Informed me that I needed to remove security grates before being able to complete the estimate or schedule, though didn't" have any referrals for doing the work. Company called the day of work scheduled to keep me informed of arrival time, due to the need for a larger crew of installers to complete the larger job. Happy with the finished product, however... I had read the previous reviews with concerns about leaving behind a mess and thought the company had resolved those issues. I can appreciate the mess that is created from deconstructing existing windows in an older home (i.e. plaster, concrete, old wood frames); the crew did a satisfactory job of clearing away this debris. My complaint is with the mess they left from the installation of the mortar, including overspray of mixing liquid and the sludge left in utility sinks below the window, which are now nearly clogged. Taking 5 minutes before starting the work to cover the immediate surroundings would've resolved the issue--I would've been happy to do this if only they'd forewarned me, or if the salesman doing the estimate had given me some instructions on how to prepare.

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.

The window being replaced had been installed in 1932 in a strange way. They figured out a way to configure a new window and installed it. Looks great, clean-up was done well. They explained all that was to be done and why. Highly recommend this company.

This was such a great Angie's List story! I would highly recommend

! I found him on Angies List and was able to get a fast response from him -- no waiting. Plus, he came OUT to the house to really take a good look at our house and unique situation (old 1910 house). He gave us an estimate on the spot. He exuded fairness, confidence, and real knowledge and experience with not only glass block, but old houses too.

was quick, professional, clean, and less expensive than the other two providers I called. They came out and did an estimate and emailed it to me- the only contact I had with them was over the phone. They scheduled the job for the next week and came and completed the job within 3 hours. I am amazed at how quickly and neatly they work.

The windows look great. I will be calling
