"Highly recommend if you need glass block work. Estimate done quickly and in a professional manner. Even pointed out a problem he saw on side of my house I was" not aware of. Work done on time and thoroughly. Was worried because never used this company, but believe me you have nothing to worry about. Neat and perfect repairs and installation. Couldn't be happier. The best in my book.

"This was a terrible experience. DO NOT USE B&D GLASS BLOCK,
, Owner and Operator. The windows, 12 basement windows and 2 garage windows," were not installed properly. It was raining heavily on and off throughout the day of installation and the owner pushed his installers to continue working. The frames were not removed in the basement windows prior to installation of the new glass block. The windows leaked within the first 3 days when it rained. One of the windows was not set straight and was left with a crooked appearance. Half the windows were not centered in the opening - leaving an inconsistent look due to an abundance of mortar on one side or the other. Hand prints of mortar were left on the brick walls near the windows. It was a mess. The larger of the 2 garage windows was incorrectly built in the shop - it was built horizontally with the vent in the middle, instead of vertically to fit the opening with the vent near the top. The owner told me there was a miscommunication regarding the measurements (he was the one who measured the opening). Against my wishes, the installers, at the direction of the owner, took apart and rebuilt the window in my garage. The on-site rebuild resulted in silicone and mortar residue contamination on the glass surfaces, rendering the appearance of the window unacceptable, as well as ill-fitting. On numerous occasions (7 to be exact) following installation I attempted to contact the owner on his cell phone (248-225-7430) to express my concerns and dissatisfaction. I left a message each time and requested a call back. Not once did I receive the courtesy of a return phone call. From the outset, the owner personally guaranteed the windows would not leak, and he assured me that his customers are always satisfied. Both of these promises were broken. I attempted to send a certified letter requesting a full refund to the address I found on Angie's list website, because neither his quote nor his business card had an address on it (red flag!). My letter was returned to me marked "address not known". A few weeks after the debacle, I hired a professional, service-oriented, reputable company to reinstall my glass block windows. I am weighing my options to take action against B&D Glass Block, but in the meantime wanted to get my comments out there so that other customers do not have to go through the disappointing and stressful situation I experienced.

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 company was very prompt, polite and did a great job. I had wanted to get the basement windows replaced for a long time and the recent heavy rains pushed it up the to-do list. The two-man crew removed the old windows, cleared the window wells and deepened both, rebuilding one, which was exceptionally deep and the cause of some water coming into the basement. One of the glass block windows has a vent for the dryer. I'm thrilled.

Installer arrived on time and performed job to specifications. Was friendly, detailed and cleaned up very well. Would hire again to complete several other windows that I decided not to do because of cost. Only negative was cost. They seem pretty expensive for the small basement windows.

I saw a deal for 3 windows on Angies List, and that is exactly what I needed. I didn't order through Angies List, I called to make sure it's what I needed, and glad I did because it was less expensive when he arrived to quote it and set up an appointment.
Great job. Great price. Scheduled and arrived on time. Got right to work and was finished in a timely manner. Would recommend and use again if needed! Love my windows!

I called on Tuesday and they came out on Wednesday with a quote. They installed on Thursday afternoon. Brought in 6 basement windows and a nice size window for my kitchenette. They were friendly, worked quickly, and treated me with respect. I was appreciative of all the guys who worked hard, cleaned up and let me razz them. It was a long afternoon with the kitchenette window as it was up high and very heavy. Basement windows were done so quickly that I couldn't even tell you how long it took.
