Marine, business & residential: Opening a window on North Island glass installation

Locally grown business offers glass solutions throughout the North Island

Blair Marshall was working on a boat project in his Port Hardy welding shop when he realized there was nowhere on the North Island to purchase windows anymore.

With wife Tanya, he decided to source and install the windows, and idea for Marshall’s Glass Solutions was created.

Level B glazier Jerrad Lamming joined the Marshalls as a shareholder and the three have since worked together to build the business. True locals, believing in the value of community, Tanya and Blair have called the North Island home for more than 20 years, raising their family here, as is Jerrad.

Today, as Marshall’s Glass Solutions prepares to mark its first year providing local glass installation, they serve the whole North Island, as far south as Woss. From that initial boat installation, a comprehensive window installation business has emerged – from single-family homes to apartment buildings, marine windows to logging equipment, they do it all.

Energy-efficient upgrades

With a blustery North Island winter on the horizon, many homeowners will undoubtedly be casting an eye to any less-than-efficient windows, and Marshall’s Window Solutions offers quality, competitively priced, energy-efficient thermal windows, Tanya notes.

What do you need to know?

  • Don’t try to measure for the new windows yourself, Tanya says. Because the majority of Marshall’s windows are custom-crafted for your home or business, they require precise measurements, and Jerrad has the experience to get the job done right.
  • If you have a foggy thermal window with a faulty seal, most of the time they can replace the unit within the existing frame.
  • Is it an emergency? Let them know. Marshall’s maintains an inventory to accommodate unexpected accidents and broken windows. If they don’t have an appropriate window in stock, they’ll install a temporary solution until the new windows arrive. “If it’s an emergency we always have something to put in place,” Tanya says.

Speciality glass for unique conditions

Beyond residential glass, Marshall’s Glass also installs specialty glass products for marine boats and logging equipment, among other unique situations, with a variety of options including safety glass, Plexiglas, Lexan and Diamond Sea Glaze glass for example.

Marshall’s chips in for window repair

While Marshall Glass does not install vehicle windows – it’s one of the only glass services they don’t provide – they DO provide rock chip repair, welcome news for the many North Islanders travelling the region’s highways and backroads this winter!

Building a greenhouse?

Marshall’s is happy to recycle used glass for those building a greenhouse, coldframe or similar project.
