Meet the Best Installer finalists

While Chavez is responsible for the management of both Banning Glass and its sister company Menifee Valley Glass, Mirror & Screen, he is also willing and able to fill in for the office staff, help in the shop and assist with sales, says co-owner Lynndsy Swatkowski. As an installer, “Steve’s goal is to leave every job site cleaner than when his team arrives,” she says. “His experience and leadership are evident in the efficient installation of any type of window, custom screen doors, heavy glass shower doors or custom mirrored walls.”
As owner of Funke Glass & Glazing in Sullivan, Mo., Funke handles the day-to-day operation of the company, but he is still an active installer as well. Funke Glass & Glazing specializes in custom shower enclosures, custom mirrors, glass replacement, glass table tops, commercial storefronts and automotive glass. Funke communicates with customers, schedules and bids jobs, orders materials and supplies, installs residential and commercial glass, and supervises his employees.

As a shop/field production manager, Skaug splits his days at Skaug Brothers Glass between the company headquarters and the job site, overseeing fabrication and installation activities. A stickler for quality and efficiency, Skaug has worked in the glass industry for more than 40 years, starting in his parents’ shop, Armstrong Paint & Glass, established in 1952.
