Do you need to replace your basement windows? Professionals installers say glass block windows add privacy, allow light to pass through and much more.
Don't tackle a DIY home repair without asking yourself these three questions.
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.
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.
I apologize for my delay. It sounds like you'll need the services of a contracting company. After you've signed in to www.angieslist.com, try searching "Remodeling - General" using the "Search the List" tab in the main green navigation bar.

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 Altamonte Springs
The windows look great. They were quick and on time.
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.
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
