Glass Today was founded on the shoulders of brothers-in-law Rod Ellison and Shawn Stariha in 2000, when their small operation consisted of one technician, a van, a garage, and 30 years of collective auto experience. Six years later, Kevin and Heidi Foley purchased the business from Rod and Shawn, adding commercial and residential window services to the mix. Today, the showroom brims with samples of Quaker home windows, decorative glass for shower doors, as well as shelving and custom cut tabletops. Glass Today's experienced technicians still honor the founders’ mission, fixing and installing auto glass and backing their work with limited lifetime warranties and, occasionally, blood oaths.
