If you’re looking for glass, you’ve come to the right place! Glass.com is the leading resource for anything and everything glass-related.
What is Glass.com?
Glass.com is a portal about all things glass including auto, residential, and architectural glass as well as related glass products such as tabletops, shower doors, mirrors, windows, window film, and more. It provides information to consumers and offers referrals to quality glass service providers throughout the United States.
Who is Glass.com?
The founders of Glass.com, Debra Levy and Lyle Hill, have over half a century of combined experience in the industry.
Lyle Hill, Founder
Hill has worked across the country in a variety of areas of the glass industry ranging from manufacturing to dealing and everything in between.
Debra Levy, Founder
Levy began her journey by publishing successful trade magazines for nearly every sector of the glass industry and hosting glass trade show events for industry suppliers as well. This created deeply rooted connections with glass shops across the nation.
Daniel Snow, Operations Manager
Operations manager, Daniel Snow became a part of the team even before the website launched and is integral in dealing with all aspects of operation as the site continues to grow.
Why Was Glass.com Started?
As these relationships with glass shops were cultivated, dialog about the industry began and one thing was clear-as-glass:
There was a disconnect between consumer’s expectations and the reality of glass replacement options and processes. There is also a log of glass “misinformation” online. That’s when the idea of creating an informational resource to educate consumers was realized.
Through involvement in the industry, it also became apparent that there are a significant percentage of “glass shops” who performed poor work. This at the very least left consumers frustrated, but often times even left their safety in danger.
It was hard to ignore this injustice, and Levy helped to start the only organization in North America that promotes safe auto glass installation practices, and helped to develop nationally registered standards concerning the matter. Stemming from that came the idea of providing consumers with resource they could consult to find accurate information, and safe and accurate installers.

I Need Replacement Glass. How Do I Get It?
From our home page, simply select which type of glass you’re searching for. This can be auto glass, mirrors, table tops and furniture, windows and doors, shower doors, storefronts, custom services, or national programs.
Scheduling an Auto Glass Replacement
If you select auto glass, you will be asked to provide details about your vehicle and which piece of glass needs to be replaced. Then, you will be provided with price quotes from local companies in your area. Please note that this is the base price for a replacement. It includes the cost of a standard windshield and labor. The price may adjust depending on what options your vehicle is equipped with and if any additional materials are required.
On the price quote page, you can look at the details of the shops providing the price quotes by clicking the “Learn More” button. This will take you to a page that provides a description of the company, a map of where it is located, the phone number, website, and operating hours.
Once you have found a shop that is to your liking, simply click “Book Now” and fill in your information. Not all fields are required, but the more information you are able to provide, the easier it will be for the glass shop to assist you. A phone number is not necessary, but it will give the fastest response time and allow the shop to reach you with any questions. Your information will only be given to the shop, and not used for any other purposes.
If you do not receive an instant quote, we have not yet assigned your work to an affiliate in your area. Not to worry! We still have connections with shops all over the country and will find a local company to serve you. Simply fill out and submit the details about you and your vehicle.
That’s it! Once you submit the service request, you will receive a confirmation email. If you booked through one of our affiliates, you will receive another email confirmation when they have viewed your request.

Glass.com offers nationwide sunroof replacement services through our sunroof Affiliate partner. To book your sunroof replacement, simply follow the same steps listed above for auto glass replacement. The only difference is that we’ll have our provider reach out to you directly with a price quote after you submit your contact information.
