Chance Hardy

Owner

I was born in to the window business. My father had been a glazier since his early 20’s and I remember many days of helping him out before I was even 10 years old. I began my glaziers apprenticeship when I was 19 and was a Journeyman glazier by the age of 24. I worked for Giroux Glass in Los Angeles for 9 years.

I hope you enjoy the professionalism and eagerness of my staff to help you through your residential or commercial projects.

Vice President

I have been with Hardy Windows since 2000. I followed in my fathers footsteps at age 19 getting into the glazing industry. Getting my start at a commercial glass company, Giroux Glass, I worked hard and learned the ropes from some of the best glaziers around, including my father and Chance Hardy.

Commercial New Contrustion Division

I started in the glass business in 1987 and soon became an apprentice in our local union. I met Chance Hardy through working with his dad, Pat, and worked on projects with him throughout our apprenticeship. I became a journeyman glazier in 1992 and worked on large jobs in DTLA, such as the Gas Company Tower and 801 Figueroa. After a back injury in 2000 I got my start in sales & estimating. I bring over 32 years of window and glazing experience to Hardy Windows to give you the most knowledgeable window company in the industry.
