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!

"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."

"Very professional and conscientious. I had the pane on one of our sliding doors replaced ( had lost the argon gas and was showing moisture). Far better then replacing the whole unit. Quick and easy"

"Glass Guru was fast and fixed my Peach Tree windows so that now I can open them! Saving my windows was a huge cost savings, they are beautiful wood windows which no one seems to make anymore. Thank you so much for helping us keep them in good condition, just in time for warm weather!"

"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."
