NGA Names The Glass Guru its May 2012 Member of the Month

WASHINGTON, DC (May 1, 2012) — The National Glass Association (NGA), the voice of the North American glass industry, is proud to announce The Glass Guru as its member of the month for May 2012. The Glass Guru has been a member of the NGA since 2007.

"We're proud to receive this recognition by the NGA, especially since we are a relatively young company," said Dan Frey, Founder & CEO of The Glass Guru. "But despite our age, we've been an innovator in the industry with our window restoration technologies. That has helped us become one of the fastest-growing franchise organizations in the business today."

The Glass Guru was established in mid-2004 in Roseville, CA. Pioneering new window restoration technologies, The Glass Guru was the first in the U.S. to offer the groundbreaking service of moisture removal for failed dual-pane windows. With over 25,000 windows successfully restored, the process has saved their residential and commercial customers millions of dollars in replacement costs, and prevented thousands of windows from going to landfills. With locations in 26 states, two Canadian provinces and growing, The Glass Guru is the only U.S.-based national organization currently offering this green and money-saving service.

For windows with hard-water staining or scratches, the company utilizes the latest surface restoration technologies to remove minor-to-severe damage. Over years of testing and refinement, The Glass Guru has developed advanced products and techniques that can effectively restore windows with exterior glass damage to like-new condition at a fraction of the replacement cost.

"The Glass Guru is a very special company that understands that innovation, superior customer service and world-class employee training are essential to long-term success," noted David Walker, Vice President of Association Services. "They're exactly the kind of member company we're so proud to represent."

Offering glass and window replacements since early 2006, The Glass Guru has become a one-stop solution for all of its customers' residential and commercial glass and window needs. Its full-service locations also offer screens, shower enclosures, mirrors, table tops, doors, and a number of other specialty products like soundproof glass and custom pet doors.

"We are always looking for new and innovative niches we can capitalize on that are complementary to our other products and services", explained Frey.

After years in development, The Glass Guru launched its franchise program in January 2007. Offering the best of its cutting-edge restorations as well as the more traditional replacement services, our franchise program is a uniquely bundled full-service concept unlike any other. With a positive growth forecast for the glass, window and door industry in the coming years, the Glass Guru Franchise program offers entrepreneurs from any background the opportunity to open their own glass and window restoration and replacement business, utilizing a proven business plan, marketing tools, training and experienced support team to help them achieve their goals.
