Per its name, Glass Doctor of North Texas heals broken glass in cars and homes with a combination of mobile and in-store services. Skilled technicians zoom to accident sites 24/7, tending to cracks and shattered panes with supplies from their emergency vehicles. Their ministrations range from replacing broken windows with plywood to measuring openings for new glass and placing rush orders. As they work, they tread carefully in clients’ spaces, wearing shoe covers and conducting meticulous cleanups, rather than just sweeping debris in piles shaped like mocking smiley faces.

The staff guide clients through the nuanced pros and cons of their varied glass panels, which run the gamut from tinted and energy-saving glass to insulated glass, which keeps homes warm more safely than burning curtains.
