March 07, 2008 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – Glass Doctor®, Western Reflections and PPG AutoGlass are teaming up to offer customers high-quality replacement residential door glass service. Glass Doctor President Mark Dawson announced the partnership during the company's annual franchisee conference held Jan. 27-30, 2008, in Nashville, Tenn.
Glass Doctor franchisees now can order Western Reflections door glass insert products and parts from PPG AutoGlass, which will ship the orders through its established auto glass distribution network.
"We appreciate the willingness of Western Reflections and PPG AutoGlass to step out of the box to help us deliver a superior product and service to our customers," Dawson said. "There is a great opportunity for decorative door window glass as homeowners look for ways to improve the value of their homes in a tight housing market. With this new partnership homeowners will be able to upgrade their doors in a matter of days, not weeks." Homeowners can preview new door windows through the Glass Doctor Web site at www.glassdoctor.com/Glass_Doors.htm. Some of the popular door glass inserts include double-pane windows with sliding blinds between the panes, decorative glass with matching side window panes, all-weather glass that meets or exceeds Dade Co., Fla., regulations, and energy-efficient glass.
"We are glad to partner with Glass Doctor because few consumers know who to turn to for door glass repair and replacement," said John Pettis, sales director for Western Reflections. "Most consumers try to put a custom-cut pane in an old frame. Glass Doctor can meet their customers' needs quickly and efficiently with high quality and professionalism on a nationwide basis."
High resolution photos of door insert examples are available upon request.
