At River Valley Tinting and Glass we strive to give you the best glass service possible for your automobile, home or business. Our mission is simple, to treat you the way we want to be treated. We are the River Valley’s only one stop shop for auto, commercial and residential glass and tinting needs.
In the late 1990’s as Chris and Amanda were beginning their life together, Chris had a vision to own his own business and he loved automobiles. Amanda was pursuing her plans to become a nurse. Chris started detailing cars, but he had a passion for window tinting. Chris also learned to install auto glass. In 2006, the Besterfeldt's opened up River Valley Tinting.
In 2013, we grew out of the building we were renting on Weir Road and were ready to have our own home. So we built our building at 2202 East 2nd street. Shortly after, we added commercial and residential services and got a new name -- River Valley Tinting and Glass. We pride ourselves on running a top notch family business and having the best customer service around.
Amanda helped Chris keep the financials organized from the beginning and worked as a registered nurse in the River Valley for 17 years. In 2017, it was time for Amanda to join the business full time and now works in the office and assists Chris with managing the day to day operations of the business. This has allowed Chris to return to his passion of tinting windows.
Amanda enjoys visiting with and getting to know the customers. They live in Dover and have two children, Josh who is learning auto glass installation and window tinting and Amelia who hopes to own her own business some day too.
The business grew and in 2013 Chris met Billy Butler who also had a passion and knowledge for automobiles. Billy was hired as an auto tech to install glass. In 2014 there was a need for another auto tech, so Russell was hired. Billy and Russell are both certified auto glass technicians.
Chris decided he wanted to add residential and commercial glass services, so in 2014 Jacob joined our family. Shortly after that, Jacob’s brother joined us. Jason and Jacob are experts in residential and commercial glass and glazing services. They grew up learning the trade from their dad Rick Jones, a well know glazier from the River Valley. In 2016 they needed an extra hand and we had the pleasure of Joe joining our family. Joe had worked with Jacob and Jason for several years previously. You will not meet a harder worker than Joe.
Christi started working in the office part time in 2018. Christi always has a welcoming smile and is ready to help anyone who comes through the door.
Also, in 2018 Shane Vickers came to us wanting to learn the art of window tinting. Chris has taken him under his wing and is teaching him the process of tinting windows.
We are pleased to announce the return of Billy Pierce. Billy has worked for us in the past and always did a great job tinting. He has 24 years of experience and has tinted everything except a submarine and a helicopter.
