“When I went to school to learn how to run a small business, no one ever told me how much of my life would be spent taking care of the building,” Glenn laughed. In the eighteen years he’s had his alternative gift shop, Glenn has had to call for Hanson replacement glass services four times.
“One time, a driver mistook her gas for her brake, and put her car right into the front of the store,” he explained. “Another time, we had a break-in. They damaged our entranceway. The winter of 2016 we had ice damage to one of our windows. And then I needed mirrors installed in the dressing rooms; that’s after we decided to start carrying clothing.”
Like any service provider, it’s a good idea to have a strong working relationship with your replacement glass company in Hanson. “You literally never know what is going to happen,” Glenn said. “Sometimes people have accidents. Sometimes there’s road work. Sometimes it’s the weather. Sometimes it’s people acting badly. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter why or how your window got broken. It matters that the windows get fixed quickly, professionally, and completely.”
When choosing a glass service, Glenn recommends working with an experienced professional. “I don’t know if you’ve priced store front windows lately, but they don’t give them away,” he said. “One of the advantages I found working with the local Hanson commercial glass company is that they worked with me to find a solution for my problems at a reasonable price. The other advantage of working with a local glass company is that they are very prompt. When your window is broken, you don’t want to have the board in front of it any longer than you have to. It creates a bad impression. People think you’re going out of business.”
