Our Story

     Since our inception in 1989, Tower Glass has grown to become one of Southern California's largest and most competitive glazing contractors. Founders Barry and Evelyn Swaim have expanded the company from a small glazing shop into one of the top 15 glazing contractors in the nation.

     Our management staff brings over 150 years of glazing experience to our clients. Working closely with contractors, architects, and owners, we offer a wide range of expertise in glass and glazing. This enables us to provide information ranging from the basics of glass and aluminum quality and appearance to ultraviolet resistance, thermal transfer, or sound attenuation for project-specific performance levels. Our staff can offer many design/build, design/assist, and production/installation alternatives, giving the customer cost-saving options while retaining aesthetic and design objectives.    

     Based in Santee, CA, Tower Glass engineers, fabricates, and installs a wide range of standard materials, including storefronts, all types of glass, composite, aluminum, and porcelain panels, window walls, and curtain walls. We specialize, however, in meeting the challenges of custom design, including canopies, sunscreens, handrails, grilles, trelliswork, skylights, fire-rated and blast-resistant curtainwall, ornamental metals, x-ray resistant and lead-lined glass, and many other custom fabrications.    

     We are committed to continued growth and prosperity.  Tower Glass strives to be a source of pride and stability for our employees and we are dedicated to provide our clients with the "craftsmanship of yesterday and the technology for tomorrow.”
