By now, we're sure you may have noticed that our logo has changed a little. We've added a little something to it in order to pay tribute to our parent store. It is our foundation. It's who we are. It's who we have always been. It's CJ's Home Décor.
Many of our customers are familiar with this name (or the longer version, CJ's Home Décor and Fireplaces, LLC). It appears on their invoices, receipts, and various other communication that they receive from us. Fast Replacement Glass operates under the direction of CJ's. We are the heating appliance replacement glass line of our home décor family. Let us give you a little background about CJ's and how we came to be.
ABOUT US (CJ's Home Décor & Fast Replacement Glass)
Fast Replacement Glass is an American company with deep roots in the fireplace and heating stove industry. Without the education and expertise of our company's founder, Chris, we wouldn't have the impressive clientele base that we have today. Our loyal customers know that they can come to us with any questions and concerns, and in return, they'll receive honest and valuable information from our trained, local employees.
Without the understanding of fireplaces, inserts, and heating stoves, one cannot truly comprehend the dos and don'ts that are associated with all of an application's components. This includes replacement glass! Our comprehensive knowledge of tempered vs. ceramic glass, fireplace door glass vs. wood stove glass, and so much more allows us to provide you with a unique customer service experience that cannot be accomplished at your typical hardware or chain supply stores. We are dedicated to providing you with the right answers!
Let us tell you a little more about the history of CJ's Home Décor and Fast Replacement Glass. Our founder, Chris, grew up in Kusnacht, Switzerland - a quaint town at the base of the Swiss Alps along Lake Zurich. By the mid-1970s, Chris had learned to fabricate mechanical parts from scratch, and 11 years later, he was well on his way to success! He brought his experience and fine workmanship to the fireplace industry and accepted a CAD designer position with Ruegg Cheminee. Soon, Chris was creating and testing stoves and fireplaces to assess their quality, safety, and efficiency.
In 1996, Ruegg expanded to Somerville, NJ, and operated under the name Ruegg Fireplaces, Inc. Chris accompanied the the business to the United States and quickly learned the English language and American fireplace engineering. Within a short period of time, people knew Chris by his engaging and friendly personality, as well as his effortless knack for installing new fire features and safely modernizing old heat sources.
By the end of the 1990s, Chris had met and married his lovely wife, Judy. The newlyweds were faced with a difficult choice right off the bat: Ruegg Cheminee was heading back to Europe, and Chris had to decide whether his calling was to go back to Switzerland or stay in the United States. Perhaps his deep love for America and his devoted customers made the decision for him. Almost immediately, people began requesting his help with heat renovations. With $200 and one car between them, Chris and Judy promptly answered the calls, and before they knew it, CJ's was a household name! Shortly after the year 2000, FireplaceEnclosures.com and an 1800 square foot warehouse/showroom allowed them to create and market fireplaces and accessories. By 2005, Chris and Judy had a permanent home for their business at 21701 Route 6 in Warren, PA.
With over 30 years of knowledge and experience combined, our founder and group of local employees are an elite team of dedicated professionals who are committed to putting our valued customers first! We are proud to carry superior-quality replacement glass from only the best and most trusted American glass cutters. To date, we have proudly partnered with many well-known manufacturers from all over the United States to bring you only the highest quality products available today!
