Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because ... I'm Tom Rowland, the founding 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 (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, Tom Rowland Sr. joined the business as my partner. We are glad to help with your window and bath glass needs!.

We started in this industry in 2012.

Project: Install or Replace Window Glass
I had 3 windows and one patio door replaced that had all lost their seal. They were able to accommodate my schedule as I was preparing my house to be sold. The work was completed on time and budget and the quality was exceptional.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
