Placerville Glass owner Rob Powell admitted to breaking his fair share of windows as a boy. He’d take a swing and that ball would just … CRASH.

“I cost my parents a small fortune,” the El Dorado County native confessed.

These days, Powell takes pride in replacing broken or outdated windows. His longtime Placerville business has glass covered from picture frames to skyscrapers. Powell and his staff of six offer a variety of glass services — shower door repair or replacement, mirror installation, window repair, replacement and installation, custom glass tabletops creations, screen installation and more. They work with both residential and commercial customers.

Placerville Glass also has hard-to-find parts for windows, screens and patio doors as well as glass cutters, caulking, brackets, cleaners and other necessities for homeowners who want to complete their own projects.

Al Hogreffe opened Placerville Glass in 1977. In 1990 Powell became his business partner; he took over the shop when Hogreffe retired nine years ago.

Powell said he loves the variety that comes with working in the glass business. No two days are alike and no two customers have the same needs; though some do share funny stories. “It always starts with ‘You’ll never guess what happened,’ ” Powell said, chuckling.

Whatever the need, Placerville Glass uses high-quality products to complete the job and they stand behind their work; there’s a lifetime warranty on windows. And, Powell said, their customer service is second to none. Customers are greeted and made comfortable with the products, staff and decisions made regarding their projects. “It’s important, from start to finish, that it is a good experience,” Powell said.

They’re definitely doing something right. Most of Placerville Glass’ business comes from repeat customers, according to Powell, and Mountain Democrat readers have voted the shop the best in town several times.

To thank the community, Placerville Glass gives back by donating to local school athletics and educational programs.

With more than 35 years in the community, Placerville Glass has become the clear choice. “We will provide quality products and services,” Powell guaranteed. “People know if they need something fixed or something different we’ll be there to do it.”

Placerville Glass is located at 3046 Chapel St. in Placerville. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information call 530-622-6417 or visit placervilleglass.com.
