"Very punctual, professional and very nice quality. Cleaned the dirt out of the window wells and did a very professional finish on the units.

-Paul C.

"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!

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.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

Thanks for writing! - Kyle K

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 San Jose


It went great! With in 5 days of purchasing the Big Deal
San Jose Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
contacted me for measurement and installation. The new windows were install very quickly! Would recommend the
San Jose Glass Block Installers Provider Name Locked
to anyone!
- Charles T.

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.
- Denise S.

Came as scheduled, work was done very quickly and neatly by team of two installers. They took away the old windows and left everything clean and orderly.
- Rudy B.

They did a wonderful job! I felt bad because one of the guys who came to do the work was very tall and they didn't realize that it was a crawlspace they were working in and not a basement, but they handled it perfectly. I would consider using them again in the future for more glass block.

I waited for awhile to make sure the product performed well. Thru these storms and weather the windows were wonderful! He arrived as he promised, the work was done quickly and a great cleanup job. I am so pleased!!
- Robert F.

Met with a sales person that measured and provided quote for the requested service . Called when promised the windows would be ready to schedule the install. Installer arrived and completed the work requested. One of the existing windows was a total pain to remove as I had tried to remove before calling a professional and it seemed I would need a

hammer to get that one removed. The installer made quick work of and the result was absolutely perfect. I now have no more worries of another break in through the traditional windows that were replaced.
- Carl F.

STAY AWAY!!!!!! Purchased 8 hours of contracting work and he never started or completed the work. Started off by emailing him with dates to have him come out and he asked that I call him. Spoke to him on the phone and said it's best to text message him which I did. Didn't hear back right away and tried again. Scheduled a date/time to come to our home and he rescheduled at the last minute. He then didn't show up or even bother to call for the rescheduled appointment. I of course had to contact him about the missed appointment because he doesn't take the time to do it himself and said I could get a refund. Complete Joke!!
Terrible customer service and terrible experience. Wish I had paid closer attention to his reviews before purchasing. This guy has no business being on Angie's List.

(owner) answered the phone on the first call, did not have to leave a voicemail or talk to an answering service. Came out the same day to measure my basement windows and left me with an estimate. Called him next day and he put me on the schedule. Two weeks later we have four perfectly installed glass black windows. Job took him about 3 - 4 hours.

and his worker were efficient and professional. Left work areas clean and looking a lot better than before he started the job! Would hire them again and recommend to my family and friends.
