Our Team

Tom Rowland

Owner

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.

"We had shower glass and door installed. They turned out beautifully. My wife noticed a small pin hole leak, the immediately followed up and fixed it. Very quick and professional service. I most recently went back to glass Guru for a screen repair. Again a very prompt and professional job. I highly recommend"

"We have lived in our home for about 30 years. This past winter one of the picture window's formed a crack and other windows were showing fogging issues. It was time to replace these. We had several "total" window replacement firms out for estimates. For the work we needed done, all of these quotes were more than what we had anticipated. The week we were going to make a choice, we received a flyer from the The Glass Guru. We decided to call them. For our need, The Glass Guru would replace the glass components (as well as the decorative grids) within the window frame. For us, this was a MUCH more affordable solution. The panels were replaced, however, the picture frame window grids did not match the surrounding window grids. The Glass Guru ordered the corrected panels and those were installed about three weeks later. The grids matched exactly. So from the initial call to the customer service rep, to the sales rep and the install team, this is an excellent company to take your window needs to. As time goes on I am sure I will be having issues with other windows, I won't waste my time fielding quotes from other window firms, I will be going straight to The Glass Guru."

"I had two pieces of glass that I wanted installed on the check-out counter at my office. The Glass Guru came up with a good plan on how to install the glass pieces. They were helpful, prompt, and courteous."
