About Glass Doctor of Newport News

The Owner

Edwin Cape

Edwin Cape decided in 2015 to obtain the Glass Doctor of Newport News franchise. It was added to the Glass Doctor of Virginia Beach franchise. This resulted in a single full-service glass company to meet customer’s glass repair needs from Williamsburg to Virginia Beach. This resulted in the largest full service glass replacement company in southeastern, Virginia. We provide frameless showers, double pane windows, and windshields.

Edwin has three engineering degrees. He started out his career working for GE as a field engineer and then moved into management. He grew and developed service businesses for GE and Alvey Systems. In 2003 he opened up his first franchise in Newport News and has grown it into the largest residential cleaning business in the area. In 2006 he purchased the Glass Doctor territory in Virginia Beach.

Glass Doctor now serves the entire Hampton Roads area from Williamsburg through Virginia Beach. We provide glass repair services. Glass Doctor is a franchised organization with offices located across the United States and Canada.

We provide services for broken window glass, store fronts, showers, and auto glass.


Glass Doctor of Newport News supports the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia. We are one of the oldest drop off points for the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia in our area. This makes it convenient local residences and churches to drop off donations. Glass Doctor also donates glass repair services to the Food Bank.
