About Us

Custom Glass is proud to be family owned and operated since 1952!

Custom Glass was actually started in 1948 when Lino “Lee” DePaoli started doing auto glass as a part of Lee’s Auto Body on Wells Avenue.

In 1952 Custom Glass became an entity of its’ own and was incorporated in 1959. It grew from Auto glass to include Residential work and then Commercial service followed by larger jobs.

Custom Glass stayed in the store on Wells Avenue when the body shop was moved to the Second Street location.

Eventually, the body shop was sold and relocated. Custom Glass moved to Second Street where it stayed until October of 2015.

Today Custom Glass is located at 280 S. Rock Blvd., Ste 150 in Reno.

The shop is owned by Lee’s son, Kevin DePaoli. Kevin has been integrally involved in the daily operations of the business since the early 70’s and takes every aspect of the company very seriously. He continues to build on the foundation of quality, reliability, and accountability that his father entrusted to him.

Over the years Custom Glass has grown to be a full service glass company in all areas of Auto, Residential, and Commercial glass services. We routinely serve within a 100 mile radius of the shop, but we have completed jobs in more distant locations such as Elko.

Custom Glass enjoys a longstanding reputation for superior customer service and quality workmanship which is guaranteed. We constantly strive to be the glass leader in Northern Nevada utilizing new technology, innovative processes, and highly experienced craftsmen in order to meet all your glass needs.

Thank you for considering Custom Glass and we hope we may be of service!
