Tom Rowland


Hello neighbors! I’m Tom Rowland, owner of The Glass Guru of Gurnee since 2012.  I grew up in the Libertyville, IL area, went to Libertyville High School, and then college at ​​Trinity International University in Bannock, IL where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. Before transferring to Trinity International, I studied civil engineering at Purdue. While in college, I took a break and started The Glass Guru and graduated in 2016 with my degree while running our store. Before starting The Glass Guru, I did work for myself as a handyman, mobile detailer, and doing odd jobs throughout college. 

I started The Glass Guru because I enjoy helping others and wanted to  have a positive impact on my community.  What attracted me to The Glass Guru was the guru mindset and the support I receive from the Franchise Headquarters. I am extremely proud of the positive impact we have left on our customers, employees, and community.  What I like most about this business is I have an opportunity to help others in a construction-related field. 

Outside of work, I enjoy mountain biking, camping, and enjoying time with family.  My wife, Carly,  and I have a toddler named Colton and a baby boy due October 2022, and a Goldendoodle named Spice. On weekends you might find us on a bike trail, enjoying quality time with the family or church. 

It’s a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to serve you and we hope to be the local glass shop you can trust and rely on for many years to come.

"Order fulfilled within few days. Way better than some of their competitors, who delayed the job I paid for in advance for about 4 months…"

"I called the Glass Guru to get a quote for a bathroom shower enclosure and these folks are the real deal. Super punctual and very professional. The owner came out and took measurements and prepared a drawing and the quote the same day. Will definitely be using Glass Guru again on future projects."

"This is the second time we've used Glass Guru to replace windows whose seal has broken. Both times they've come out quickly to assess the window and provide a replacement cost. We only needed to wait 2-3 weeks for the window (it was a big one) and they installation was great. Thank you Glass Guru!"

"My experience was off to a rough start...the Lady inside seemed overwhelmed but nice & apologetic. The cabinet door I brought in to be sized for a piece of glass sat there for a week before being told they couldn't do a Bevel for it (so I took it up to Gurnee & they did it). Also, the phone number on their Google website doesn't usually connects to someone with an Indian accent saying they are 411 directory assistance and ask for city & State.
The Glass shelves they did do, turned out nice & were reasonably priced. It was an average/'okay' experience at the end."

"Glass guru repaired 7 of my windows. They were quick, professional, efficient, and their pricing was exactly what I expected based on national averages. There were no surprises and the guys that came to work were polite and worked very quickly to make sure they didn’t disturb our home. I would definitely recommend them to anyone."

"This is the 2nd time that we are using Glass Guru for shower doors and they are the best!!! Their prices are competitive and Tom will work with you if you have another bid. The work they do is awesome. Mike and Ted did the install and they were great. They were conscientious of the work area and left the bathroom spotless. They made sure we had the instructions on what we needed to do prior to using the shower. Would highly recommend them!!"
