Glass Repair and Replacement Business Celebrates Opening
March 26, 2008 // Franchising.com // WIGGINS, Miss.– The Glass Doctor® of South Mississippi franchise owned by Steve Kennedy is now open for business and ready to "fix your panes."
As a full-service glass repair and replacement company, Glass Doctor of South Mississippi offers automotive, residential and commercial glass repair and replacement services to Harrison and Stone Counties. Located at 1704 Azalea Dr. (Hwy. 49) in Wiggins, Glass Doctor of South Mississippi is open 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
"Our new shop in Wiggins will offer the same great prices and services as our Glass Doctor shop in Gulfport, so there's no need to go out of town to get a better deal," Kennedy said. "Now that spring is here, drivers should think about getting damaged windshields repaired." Repairing a windshield is relatively cheap compared to replacing a windshield. Repairs generally take 30 minutes or less. Windshield repairs are permanent restorations, and the damage won't spread further.
"Windshield replacement is a last resort, but it may be essential to your vehicle's safety," Kennedy said. "You can trust Glass Doctor to give you a professional assessment. If the windshield does need to be replaced, we use windshields that are made to the manufacturer's original specifications and we back up our work with a 12-month breakage guarantee and a lifetime warranty against leakage."
The new shop in Wiggins also will offer the newest Glass Doctor service, home entry door glass replacement and renovations. Glass Doctor can restore broken door glass, replace door glass with upgraded doorlites and renovate entryways by cutting a new window into an existing door. Plus matching side windows can be installed on either side of front entry doors.
"Doorlites are glass door inserts with small frames," Kennedy said. "In newer homes, at least one entryway probably has a door with a half- or full-window glass, a window with a plastic frame screwed into the door. If your entry doors already have doorlites, they can be easily upgraded, and if your entry doors do not have doorlites, openings can be cut into steel or fiberglass doors to install them."
Some of the popular door glass inserts include:
- double-pane windows with sliding blinds,
- decorative glass with matching side window panes,
- all-weather glass that meets or exceeds Dade Co., Fla., regulations, and
- energy-efficient glass.
