Why Our Franchise?
People have known about glass for thousands of years, but few dare to handle it every day. Those who do are glaziers (not glaciers); members of a select, little-known professional trade specializing in glass installation and restoration.
As science and research continue to develop new glass products, the glazing profession becomes more complex. People with mechanical ability, detailed thinking and hands-on work skill, who love a new challenge every day, are in high demand nationwide to join the glazing profession. Portland Glass franchise owners recruit the best glaziers to be glass specialists, especially those who are certified by the National Glass Association (NGA). Portland Glass specialists are qualified to cut and handle all sizes and types of glass.
Because the glass industry is changing quickly, Portland Glass specialists continue to develop their skills through Web-based distance learning tools such as MyGlassClass.com. Some Portland Glass specialists are cross-trained to work on home, auto and commercial glass, while others specialize in one type of glass; similar to general practitioners and specialists in the medical field. While practicing glass repair and replacement is not as complex as practicing medicine, the same care must be taken because the glass is important to the person – the customer – who needs help.
