With The Glass Guru, one call does it all! The Glass Guru Franchise locations are unique in the market. We don't just replace glass and windows like all the others! We RESTORE them for a fraction of the cost, saving our customers money and also doing something positive for the planet in the process.

Why Choose Glass Guru?

Every year, hundreds of thousands of windows in the US lose their integrity due to seal failure. As pioneers in the emerging window restoration industry, The Glass Guru was the first company in the US to offer moisture removal for failed (foggy) thermal pane windows back in 2004. We remain the only US based national company offering the service in North America today. Our process involves the installation of our patent-pending Micro-vent system that permanently eliminates moisture while restoring the window's clarity and insulation. As an organization, The Glass Guru has successfully restored over 30,000 windows, saving millions of dollars and hundreds of tons of glass from going to the landfills.
