"I called WBG for an estimate on our window replacement and they responded quickly. Communication was great and I knew exactly what would be done and for what cost." On the day I scheduled for replacement, WBG was on time and went right to work. They discovered that I had a bee problem when they removed one of the windows and promptly took care of it. They cleaned the areas around the windows both inside and outside the house. The windows were installed quickly. They look great and allow me to circulate air in the basement. I highly recommend
and have passed their information on to friends who need their windows replaced.

"It went wonderful. Couldn't beat the cost. They were here when they said they would be and done within an hour, cleaned up and hauled away old windows. Workmen were very nice and courteous.

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.

Angie's Answers

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.




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 Watkins


I neglected to write this review after the service so I have forgotten the owner's name who came out to speak to me about his product but I had a wonderful experience.
I was undecided about using glass block as i was afraid several things, one of them is the amount of light that would be entering the cellar. He told me not to worry, that some say the amount of light is more than a typical window and he was right. I am very happy with the look of the window from the inside and out.
I had a concern about the delivery and installation time, my window was broken into so I had just a cardboard to protect my cellar from the elements and burglary. I am happy to note that MD Block took my fears into consideration and was able to get my window installed fairly quickly.
I'd recommend MD Block for price, quality and service.

He was on time! Arrived at 9:15 day of installation. He was very professional and hard working. Procedure took only 2 1/2 hrs, he cleaned up very neatly after he was through. Would definetly hire him again. Very pleasant! Did Shop around...this was definetly the BEST price anywhere that we got. We got the whole deal which included 3 vented glass block windows for $488.00 which included a $23.00 upcharge for 1 extra large window.

Called on August 5th to get a quote for two glass block windows and was able to schedule an appointment on the same day. The salesman arrived on time and was very professional and personable. A discount was applied for mentioning Angie's List. He was also very responsive in providing additional information regarding the cost to add vent windows and the configuration of the windows. Ordered 2 windows that were 4 blocks wide, 3 blocks tall with top row being 8x6 vs 8x8 for the other rows. Vent windows were positioned in the center of the middle row of both windows. Dryer vent was able to be next to the vent window.
I received a call to schedule the install a few days after mailing in my signed quote and deposit. I verified that the vent windows were added to the order. The appointment was originally scheduled for August 26th, but I received a call about an hour prior to my appointment time that the morning job ran over and they needed to reschedule my install. While this was a minor inconvenience, it was easy to get another appointment for September 2nd.
The installers arrived on time. After a brief introduction they immediately got to work. I was surprised to learn that the windows were already assembled, so I verified that they were configured as requested since changes were made over the phone. The windows were perfect. The installers finished in just over an hour and did a great job of cleaning up. The new windows look BEAUTIFUL!!

They did not do the work they asid they would. Their work was shoddy. Left off expansion joints between building and slab that caused problems. Did very poor work on patching the approach. Once paid had the attitude" what do you want from me"?

replaced approx 40" tall, 8" wide glass block wall that was aligning our staircase and had begun to break due to faulty materials and installation by our builder (est approx 2005). Very happy with the quality and workmanship of the job - would highly recommend

for similar work.
- David S.

The finished product looks good, glass block and vent windows see to be very high quality construction. Double pain glass, smooth operation. They cleaned up fairly well, but there was some dried cement and glass on the basement floor. They arrived less than 1 hour late due to confusing on their part as to which job was first that day. They finished in under 4 hours. The trucks they drove were not marked and in sad condition, but this did not effect the end product.
