Glass Tech Tour and Presentation 

In 1999 Cedar Valley natives Ron and Jodie Watson started Glass Tech with the goal to outshine the national chains through hard work and the rigorous requirements of maintaining an Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard, AGRSS, accredited shop. This dedication to safety and quality has served our clients well. Hundreds of families, body shops, car dealerships, collision centers, insurance companies and insurance agents turn to Glass Tech for glass replacement.

The AGRSS Standard addresses six critical areas relative to the auto glass installation process, including:

Along with AGRSS accreditation, Glass Tech is a member of the Greater Cedar Valley Chamber of Commerce, Cedar Falls Main Street and Local High School Athletic Boosters.

If your car needs to be in the shop for repairs you can watch TV and enjoy free Wi-Fi in the lounge. If that doesn’t work, a shuttle service will drop you off at work or even the mall. Glass Tech is conveniently located at the 5 corners at 1925 Waterloo Road,  Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Facility location

1925 Waterloo Road is just east of the 5 points in Cedar Falls.
