Window Genie of Myrtle Beach specializes in window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, roof cleaning, gutter cleaning, and more for their residential and commercial clients as well as condo associations.
“We’re not perfect, but we try to be,” says Tom Washer, the owner of the franchise. “Our first priorities are to have respect for the customers, respect for each other, and to provide a quality service at a premium price.”
Tom is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He joined when he was 17 years old and served for four-and-a-half years in Arizona, Texas, Panama, and Oklahoma City. During his time in the military, he gained a lot of knowledge working in the maintenance analysis division. He then spent thirty-five years of his civilian life working throughout New England in sales and management for consumer products.
Being tired of the snow and cold weather, and interested in joining a franchise brand, he and his wife relocated to Myrtle Beach six years ago.
“We’ve lived in the Market Common throughout that time, and have endured Hurricanes Florence, Matthew, and Dorian as well at the Covid-19 pandemic,” Tom says. “We have continued to serve our community throughout these difficult times that all of our neighbors have had to experience. Despite these natural drawbacks, we continue to grow along with the support of our strong customer relationships.”
Today, instead of shoveling snow off his roof, he is helping his customers in Myrtle Beach to clean algae off theirs, as Window Genie also specializes in roof cleaning.
