About Northern Glass

Northern Glass owners Ian Hill & Linda Petrie
Northern Glass Co., Inc. has continuously operated since 1949 when it was originally founded and located on Newell Street in Watertown. This began our history of providing quality glazing services to the construction industry, commercial and residential markets. In the early 1960’s, the company was relocated to our present location at the junction of NYS Route 37 and US Route 11. In the early 1970’s John Hill took over as General Manager and in 1979 purchased the company, continuing the tradition of glazing services in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. Many large scale and unique projects were completed during this time and included the addition of a retail store and auto glass installation services.
In 1992 John and wife Jean retired, turning the “reins” over to their children; daughter Linda Petrie, and son, Ian Hill. Linda and Ian continue a proud tradition of providing services throughout the tri-county region. Northern Glass Company’s strength is its team of dedicated professionals and customer service personnel who place customer satisfaction and quality installations as their top priority. Northern Glass Company works hard to maintain our reputation for providing quality services in our community.

Our window systems are available with ST Energy Star glass to meet Federal Tax Credit and Energy Star qualifications.

We keep informed on current trends in the industry and employees are involved in many training and certification programs throughout the year, all to better serve our customers. There are many copy cat sealants, but Essex sealants have been used on passenger vehicles by most auto manufacturers since the early 1960's. Essex is our company's product of choice when it comes to automotive glass replacement. After all, who knows your vehicle better than the manufacturer.

A sunroom is a great way to bring the outdoors in without the bugs, wind, cold, or hot weather. Add more living space and value to your home with a custom built sunroom from Northern Glass. All too often the patio or deck of your home goes unused, since these are weather permitting areas. With the addition of a sunroom, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature year round. If you don’t currently have an outdoor area to your home, our sunrooms are the finest way to achieve the space you’re looking for. Our specially manufactured glass allows each custom sunroom we install to stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This combined with the endless design possibilities will provide both a scenic and sensible space for all to enjoy.
