Full Service Glass Shop

The most common reason to stop by our shop is to drop off items needing glass replacement, or to pick up will call orders. We have a one day turn around on mirrors and annealed glass if the glass edges don’t need to be polished. Insulated glass units and tempered glass with no fabrication typically have a two day turnaround. Most items are received in about a week.

Behind the scenes at Wilson Glass

Another common reason people drop in is to get replacement shower parts and vinyl. We have a large selection of vinyl seals and sweeps for frameless enclosures in stock. Parts and vinyl for framed enclosures need to be ordered. It is very helpful for you to know the manufacturer. Parts for showers over 20 years old are often unavailable. Most of the shower parts we have in stock are for frameless enclosures.

We have a few glass and hardware samples for you to view.  If you want to look at a particular type of glass, let us know so we can order it.  There are infinite glass options.

Great work, reasonable prices, and quick turnaround! Above all, they have excellent customer service. Of the many projects involved in my most recent build, the shower door and mirror I ordered from Wilson Glass was one of the most straight-forward and professional interactions.

Although my job wasn't a big one, sometimes the small ones add up and help the staff and installers with a brief break from intensity and problems of a large job that goes wrong. My experience with you and your installers was exceptional. I was listened to, given the support I needed, received a quick response which I really needed, the installers were professional, did an excellent job, respected my home and and cleaned up afterwards. Thank you for being such an efficient 'up front' office manager with great people skills. I should know as I worked as a registered nurse for 30 years and a psychotherapist for 10years.

Mel R - Deck Railing

Wilson Glass installed seamless glass on our large deck overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. The new system replaced our vertical wood connecters and made it seem that there was actually no surface at all protecting the deck. It is stunning!!

The best part about using Wilson is that they came back to make a minor repair and notified us that they thought the 'shoe' holding the glass should have longer bolts to ensure the stability. They came and replaced them at no charge. Only a Company with great integrity and leadership would take an action like this. By the way we had competitive bids before proceeding with the job and Wilson was the low bidder.

I got my shower door handle from you. GREAT SERVICE. I have recommended you to my neighbor, who is a general contractor. He will probably use you in the future. Thanks again!

I have been doing glass work since I was a baby. My first stitches when I was 4 'working' at fast glass in Berkeley 1981. That was my fathers business for 30 years. Before that his dad ran Wilson Glass in Concord since 1954. Since 2003, I have been here in Berkeley installing all types of glass around the Bay Area. We are Glaziers and we take pride in our work.

Serving the Bay Area Since 1956

We are a locally owned and operated glass shop in Berkeley, California. Wilson Glass was originally founded in 1956 by Vester Bryce Wilson. He built the first shop in Concord, California, where he lived and raised his family of four kids.

Bryce’s only son, Dave Wilson, graduated from Berkeley and and opened his own glass shop on San Pablo called Fast Glass. He ran that for 30 years and raised two kids of his own.

David Wilson, son of founder Vester Wilson 1960

Dave’s son Aric graduated from college in 2000. After a short career in Manufacturing Aric went back to help his father during the remodeling of the Ferry Building in San Francisco. Fast Glass had been hired to replace all the arched top windows on the interior of the Ferry Building and the two large end windows. At that point Aric decided he wanted to do glass and he talked his his father Dave into re-opening Wilson Glass in Berkeley. Together they started the shop and the rest is history.
