Hello my friends,I recently wrote in my last blog I was going to lease a commercial building. Well after considering this real hard . I decided not to do this.My last two years has been great. I can't find good help so I will keep my place and continue to do what I'am doing. My customers are my pride and joy, I love meeting and talking with new customers every day. I enjoy doing this kind of work, glass table tops and mirrors are one of my specialty's. Insulated glass or double pane windows I can make in house with my machine. I have the same equipment  the big company's have but just a smaller scale. So if your window breaks, or you need a new mirror or table top please call me to have a talk and I will work a deal with you. After 33 years of working in this field I have found a good nest for me to use my skills and make my customers happy. I just want to thank all my customers and feel free to give me a call.

People in the same business

Hello my readers, recently I have been checking my competitors for pricing and quality.Also looking at them for the way they handle phone calls coming in.  Who is answering those calls and how much experience those people have telling you what you need to know.One, are they telling you the correct information about the products you need to know or want to buy.In my last
survey I found the competitor told the customer such a line I almost fell I the floor in tears.Please folks, when it comes to this trade , the glass and glazing field, call me and ask the questions.Because the competition has a big name and has been here for a long , long time, most of the time they cant find people with the experience to do this type of work and the answer for the questions you are asking.They come up with a line just to get you of the phone.The pricing you are receiving for material that is not custom done by hand.They are buying some were over seas and shipping into the US that is done in repetition one after another .Like the out door table sets for example.When they break, to replace that is a custom lite of glass being done by me in my shop,so the cost of it is going to be just as much as the whole set if not more.
Any piece you buy in a store all put together ,ready to go out the door is what we call pre - fabbed.
When a glass company does one of these projects, or even a broken pane of glass.In your house,this is a custom job done by me with the experience of 33 years.This type of work,everything is done by hand with the most skill set in the business.Give me a call and you will get the most professional advice in this trade.My Dad was in this from 1949 till 1992 when he passed.I was the youngest of 5 being with my Dad every minute of the day.I learned this trade very well and want to pass this on to you,my customer.
 As you can see from my reviews my customers are very happy.I make sure of that.When I'am done with a job ,I make sure my glass is clean my work areas is clean and my tools are put away nice and neat in my truck.
 When you want a professional job done with glass, Martin's Glass & Mirror,I will be there with in 24 hours to make your project the best as can be.

Glass talk

Hey Folks, Martin here your local glass guy.Iam amazed at the way windows are made these days.Cheaper and cheaper.The glass has not changed,but the installation and material has changed that make up the window frame and sash,as we call it.The companys that make these windows have changed the format from a skilled labor to any of the mill factory work.What this means to the consumer is you are no longer getting a custom made window, Done in repetition and the person putting the parts together is just going through the steps.Not knowing why he or she is doing what they are doing and for what reasons.This is why the seal is going faster and faster, the installation!!
 I have to keep telling my customers why Iam reparing your window with the up most care,I do want you to have a good install, I want you to tell everyone Martin's Glass does the best job you ever saw.I have never had a window fail in seal failure as long as I have been doing this 35 years.That must say something.Please folks,if your window is broke or is fogged up, call me I will be able to make the correct changes to install the new glass, and yes it takes about 1 business day.WE work every day just a bout,so if for some reason you come by and we are not here,leave your window,make sure your name and # are on it we will call ya by the end of the day to pick it up.I would like to thank everyone for the kind words and I like to continue to work for you and make you happy.
 
Thank you

Hello my customers: This is a little glass talk about whats happening in the glass industry in Syracuse NY.As of September 1st 2016 I have found out that Solvay glass is no longer doing repair work in the glass industry.This means they will not warranty any of there past work,also they are giving a hardware store out as a alternative to there place.Then I have found out that City Hardwear is the place they are giving out to do there work.They are not glass people.No one that works there can do that type of work.I have asked to refer me as a alternative? Hmmm Why not?I can give you better service than anyone in the city.My insulated glass can be made up in one day and installed in your window.Please take the time to review whats going on and tell all your friends.Martins Glass and mirror is the place to bring your windows,no wait.This means at the end of the business day your order will be ready I promise.Please check my reviews.
 I have put together a system for my insulated glass that is the best and better than any ones window on the market.All types of table tops,mirrors and plexiglass,cut glass all your glass needs.I want to thank you for reading my blog and push my reviews to the top tell your family,friends and co-workers,please,I want to give you the best service you ever had.
 
Thank you

Summer and Spring ????? 2016

Well folks another Spring & Summer is around the corner.We are all looking at our properties and saying what projects will we get done this year.Myself Iam looking to start an addition that I have in planning stages for about two years or more.I have just finished a add on deck for our pool and it looks good.So the next step is too add a set of patio doors off the back of the house,this will lead to our new room that is going into construction as we speak.I had a couple of ideas to go two stories then three,with a basement,but when you start adding everything in and sizes ,it gets a little complicated.So I think we are going to add a patio with a roof.This will be nice to cook out there and eat.I have to add three walls and some windows with another set of patio doors,this will look good when finished.So everyone get into the repair mode and get those windows and screens out and bring them to me,remember that insulated glass will get done in 24-48 hours or sooner,service calls we will get to you very quick.Please call Martin's Glass,we will do our best to get you fixed up asap.I thank you very much and call when ever you break glass .
 
Thank you

Glass company's history

Posted on January 21, 2016 at 7:55 AM Comments comments (71)
Well,it is another year has started ,as I look back over the years ,working with my father from the age of 18 to 30 .Those years were great,I learned,but growing up in the glass industry was fun,when I was little and another boy in the neighborhood broke a glass in some other house they would call my father for the deal.Ofcourse my dad very seldom charged them,unless it was to big of a job to give away.Then I was the childhood hero.My Dad was the best,a WW- 2 veteran and being born in 1924,man the things he saw and went through,my hero.He came from a full blooded polish family that came to America via Ellis Island.My mom full blooded Italian,again family came to America via Ellis Island,New York City.
 
 Now I have my family and I have my son in training and of  course he is getting the super school of hard knocks.I talk his ear off during the day with stories about his grandpa and how we learned the trade ,and what we can do to make things better..Make sure our customers know we are doing the best we can for them.I will continue to make my customers happy,please call and make an appointment and we will make your project # 1 .
 
 
  Thank You

  My father has past in 1992,he was in the same type of business,of course that is how I have learned this trade.I remember all the times I use to go with my father on Saturdays to work ,because I was not old enough to work in a shop yet.You had to be 18 years old .Before this I would go on emergency calls and other jobs were he could sneak me in.I was very interested in the trade.I was also so proud of my Dad cause everyone was so respectful to him as well.Well my point is,we all learn something from someone,weather it be a colledge proffesor or a craftsman being an apprentice,I consider this school;My son has been working with me for about a year now.He is getting to know the trade,we all learn at a different pace.Another thing is how interested we are in the subject I think,I would like to know what the public thinks?So if you could please drop me a line so we can communicate this as well.I thank you for your time and wish you all a very,merry ,Christmas.I have been in the field now for 30 years,believe that ,it is true.Really its been longer than that .I cant believe it myself.But my expirence is huge, so if you have broken glass please call us ,cause we will be able to repair all your glass needs.Make new table tops,mirrors,what - ever the project is.The best thing me and my son due is service work,we can usually get to you with in 24 - 48 hours,also small insulated glass units we can make up in stock,we have all the material to make these special lites of glass,so call us we can get these done the same day as the service call.I thank you for reading this blog,Merry Christmas  and Happy New Year,From Martin's Glass & Mirror
