Our Team

Tom Rowland


Hi. I’m Tom Rowland, owner of The Glass Guru of Gurnee since 2012.

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.
Outside of work I enjoy outdoor activities and spending time with my wife Carly, son Colton (2y), our GoldenDoodle, Spice, and my extended family. I am an avid mountain biker and love to camp and play disc golf as well. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and mind, whether it’s tuning one of my bikes, working through renovating our house, or helping friends and family with their home improvement projects!
One of my favorite parts about this business is having the opportunity to serve people in our community every day. We would be pleased to help you with your glass, window, and shower door needs!

"Tom and the glass guru team are problem solvers! They helped me with glass replacement as well as window repairs. The quick response and professionalism will keep me a lifetime customer. I will definitely be referring them to friends and family. Thanks for keeping not only my family warm but my rental properties as well."

"I hired Glass Guru for installation of custom glass in a bathroom. I wanted something unique (frosting of lower 50% of sealed window) and they worked with my contractor to deliver excellent results."

"GG came out and installed a glass enclosure for our shower. They were very clean, wore booties, etc. and left no mess when finished. The shower enclosure looks great and works great! I would not hesitate to use them again!"

"We needed work done on our sliding glass doors at the house. Tom Rowland came out and reviewed the work that needed to be done, and then set an appointment for the repair. His installers were excellent; they were knowledgeable and friendly and took great care with our house. I'm always impressed when a high service level is obvious in all areas of a company. That's definitely the case at The Glass Guru! Highly recommend."

"Love the Glass Guru! They changed out 4 windows with better quality glass than my Andersons came with for about 35% of the cost of new windows I was pricing. Thank YOU!!!"

"We had Tom from the Glass Guru come over to the house we were purchasing to look at the windows and assess them. He recommended making some fixes to the existing windows as opposed to replacing them which saved a bunch of money for us. The work was done professionally and at the price quoted."

"I sought out for quote to replace shower door & frame from three vendors. Most important factor in deciding to work with them was the time the estimator spent on carefully measuring how the glass should be cut. He showed me that top of glass needed to be bit wider than bottom. No other vendor took such consideration. The crew that came to install was professional and courteous. Finally, the price of glass and installation was very reasonable. Hire the local and stay away from big vendors on FB or advertising flyers. Very satisfied with the outcome."

"Once again when I contacted Glass Guru I was greeted over the phone with enthusiasm and a desire to get my appt scheduled quickly and in a time frame that worked for me. I know I can count on them to be there when they say will and to have great communication about cost, time frame, and what is really needed versus trying to upsell. I have worked with them for over 5 years and have never been less than happy with them."
