About Us:


Lee & Cates Glass, Inc. first opened its doors in 1926 as a service provider for the growing automotive industry. Our founders, Thomas D. Lee, Sr, and Raymond H. Cates were brothers-in-law. (Mr. Cates was married to Mr. Lee’s sister.)


Both men moved their families from Georgia to Florida where they opened the original Lee & Cates store on Adams Street in Jacksonville.


While both auto glass repair and replacement still represent a large percentage of our work, we’ve grown our company providing many other types of glass-related products and services under the categories of auto glass, residential glass and commercial glass.


With 10 retail stores throughout North Florida and South Georgia, a flat glass manufacturing and distribution center and contract (commercial) division and an auto glass division, we can service all of your glass needs in the area.


A local and family owned glass business since 1926.
