TRURO – B&D Glass & Mirror has just four full-time employees and two part-timers, but Leslie Dixon says that’s what makes them stand out from the competition.
“We really go the extra mile because we’re a small, family-owned business,” said Dixon. “We take a lot of pride in our work.”
B&D Glass & Mirror has been a family-owned business since 1973 – focusing on glass replacement, locksmithing and auto detailing.
Dixon said they have many automotive, commercial and residential customers come in for custom glass work.
They regularly replace windshields and car windows after motor vehicle accidents, and even handle the insurance claim so the customers don’t have to worry about it.
Just about every business in town has commercial glass needs at one point or another, and Dixon said B&D Glass & Mirror has worked with hundreds of local companies so far – cutting and installing Plexiglas, storefront glass, plate glass and thermo panes.
Homeowners trust them to cut and install glass for their kitchen cabinets, tabletops, and even their woodstoves. B&D Glass & Mirror is also called in to repair screens and mirrors because, Dixon says, they use “precise cutting techniques” to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
Dixon said they never like to hear a customer’s been locked out of their home, but they’re happy to step in and repair a busted lock or install a new one. They also cut keys – including chip keys and travel-trailer keys – which is a popular service.
She says summer’s when everyone wants to get their vehicle shined up and looking its best, so their auto detailing business is booming right now. Their technicians do an extensive cleaning of the interior and exterior, including upholstery, carpets, and those pesky nooks and crannies between the seats that fill up with crumbs.
B&D Glass & Mirror is located at 451 Robie St. in Truro. For more information, visit bdglass.ca or call 902-895-3300.
