Deals Glass of Charlotte – Quality Service in the South

Deals Glass Services of North Carolina, have long been industry friends of ours.   They share our sentiments regarding a serious commitment to quality in service and customer satisfaction.  They have built a reputation for excellence in the Charlotte and Lancaster areas in the same way that we have built up our company – by caring about their customers.

In this spirit, Deals has launched a new website, to make getting windshield replacement or residential glass repair easier than ever!   Along with their easy-access glass quote request form, there is information that helps drivers with damaged glass make informed decisions about what is best for their automobile.  It’s great to see another shop that is encouraging a greater knowledge about the value of OEM glass and top quality adhesives.

Deals Glass Services can provide customers in their North and South Carolina service area with many of the same services we provide here.   Deals does windshield repair and OEM auto glass replacement with the same types of top quality adhesives, installed by well trained, NGA certified technicians.

They also provide a similar residential window repair process, which can remove the fog that develops inside the glass due to seal failure.  And for those who have waited too long for the repair process to be feasible, Deals can replace just the glass in your home’s windows, saving you the cost and trouble of replacing the entire window.

We hope all our readers in the south will go check out the new website and find out what Deals can do for them – we’re sure they will do an excellent job!
