Lee & Cates Glass, Inc.

Lee & Cates Glass was founded in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, in 1926 by brothers-in-law Thomas D. Lee Sr. and Raymond H. Cates. The business has since grown into a full-service glass company with locations throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, providing a wide array of residential and commercial glass installation, repair, and replacement services. Today, Lee & Cates Glass is still family-owned and run with the same vision, ethics and principles of its founders.
