Proudly Serving Gurnee, IL and surrounding areas.
Hi. I'm Tom Rowland, the founding franchisee and owner of The Glass Guru of Gurnee.
My background is in engineering as well as business. Most of my life I have enjoyed and excelled at figuring out how things work, how they're taken apart and put back together! I grew up here in the northern suburbs, went to Libertyville High School, and did my college studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN (Engineering) and Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL (Business). What first attracted me to The Glass Guru was the unique repair process we have for failed seals on dual pane windows, and my interest in having my own business. With the ability to serve customers and help them find cost effective solutions to their window problems, I am proud to be the first Glass Guru franchise in Illinois.
Five years after opening our doors back in 2012, my dad Tom Rowland Sr., joined the business as my partner. It has always been a dream of mine to work side-by-side with him. Together we are your friendly neighborhood professionals you can rely on to be your one-stop solution and the best source for glass repair and replacement.
Outside of work I enjoy outdoor activities and spending time with my wife Carly, our Golden Doodle, Spice, and my extended family. I am an avid mountain biker and have always enjoyed working with my hands and mind, whether altering my mountain bike, working through renovating our house, or helping friends and family with their home improvement projects!
We'd be pleased to help you with your window, bath and shower glass needs!
