The Owner

With fourteen full-time employees, the Perkins family continues a tradition started by their grandfather. The Perkins began their trade in Southern California over 40 years ago and have served Butte County for over 30 years.

John Perkins has been a glass technician since 1979. In 1990, John arrived in Paradise with his wife and young family. As a hands-on owner, John provides a breadth of knowledge for handling both older and newer foreign and domestic vehicles. This close management and involvement ensure that John's high standards are continued throughout the company. Today, they provide oversight of the day-to-day operations of the business as well as continued hands-on installation. In the mid 2000's John's children, Kelly & Brad, became involved full time in the business. Starting from the bottom they swept floors, cleaned, and learned the ropes of the business. Kelly migrated into answering phones and focused on the day to day office operations while Brad focused solely on working on vehicles. After almost 20 years with the business, Kelly and Brad continue the hands-on tradition and now oversee and manage the daily operations at Perkins Glass.

Our Technicians

Each one of our technicians works alongside a senior technician for at least one year (about 1,500 jobs) before operating in the field or in the shop without direct supervision. Whether in the field or in the shop, they know how to properly remove and install glass using the necessary tools. Our technicians are committed to providing a quality job.

All technicians have been manufacturer-certified in proper urethane installation. (Urethane is the adhesive used to bond the glass to the vehicle.) If urethane is not installed properly, multiple types of problems can occur. Faulty installation can affect safety and cause further problems. For example:

Our technicians are certified in glass installation and removal. This is critical to prevent leakage and rust around the "pinch weld" where the windshield and the vehicle bond.
