"I cannot provide enough positive review for how happy we are for Tonys Basement windows. The installer was very polite, very professional, and very neat! This" Company is spectacular! I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them to anyone!

-Melanie W.

" showed up and gave us 20% off right away when we mentioned Angie's List! We picked out the design and gave him a check for $100.00 down" payment and selected a date that was good for us. The worker showed up a few weeks later on time and installed the windows in 2 hours. He took the old windows with him and cleaned up when finished. All went well without any issues.

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



Was very impressed with the two guys that came to measure, then install the window. The glass block turned out to be one piece which was a nice surprise and took all of two hours. Wish I had called them years ago. Was painless and extremely cost effective. Plus the guys were very very nice. Thank you.
- Darlene S.

I was truly impressed with this no hassle job.
They came and measured, and then produced the window.
They returned a week or so later, removed the old window and disposed of it, and installed the new.
Fast, professional, and the final results are amazing. If you have some old nasty window in a basement, this is the perfect replacement. ...More It looks so clean and nice, the fit was perfect. I only wish I had thought to do this sooner.
This company did exactly what I expected, no mistakes, problems or hassles. The final product exceeded expectations by quite a large margin.
I absolutely recommend this company.
- Chris H.

This is the third time I have had a window installed by this company, and every time it was handled in the most professional way possible - competitive price, prompt, courteous, careful, respectful of my property, great installation job, etc. I could not be happier with and his team!
The last window ...More was installed in the basement of an 1898 red brick house, and it looks great! I highly recommend this company.
- Debra G.

We approached the project with some trepidation, but quickly found that was going to be easy to work with. They kept us up to date on the extensive repair project, and didn't need any prodding from us to keep the project moving. The work done was first rate (and we're a bit fussy). All work was done as expected for ...More the price that was quoted. The pricing was attractive enough that we included some non-insurance work we were originally planning to do ourselves. They cleaned up well and minimized impact on the yard.
- T N.

It went very well. The guys were prompt, courteous and professional. They did a fine job and cleaned everything up. Windows look nice. Would definitely recommend this company!
- Deborah C.

. I Called for an estimate and Mr. came out August 8, 2015 and talked with me about what I wanted, the windows looked so difficult to do they were old basement windows, the house was built 1965. Mr. showed the sample of what he sold and told what would be best. I ...More choose the Decora block. He came out 9/16/15 and installed them with his helper. they done an awesome job. I found him to be humble and honest. I had called another company before and was surprise at the contract and what it stated. I am so pleased with the work and the warranty. I would hire again. I am so THANKFUL!!!
- Ann B.

In order to repair a damaged and leaking window, and to replace the remaining three pane windows, we asked company to provide a proposal, which we accepted. They were able to schedule our project around our travel plans, which was very much appreciated. The project was fairly straight forward, although ...More the existing window could not be effectively repaired, so we opted to have it replaced as well. Everything turned out great.
- James F.

Mr. was terrific. He returned my call quickly and scheduled a time on a Saturday morning to complete the work. He arrived promptly and fixed the window quickly and efficiently. In addition, I asked him to take a look at my other windows to be sure that they did not need work (I had neglected to do so when he came out for the ...More estimate) and he kindly fixed these, as well. The price was unbeatable and I would not call anyone else.
