Lafayette Metal and Glass was founded in 1899 on Lafayette Street in New York City.
In the early 1900’s, Lafayette installed and fabricated glass, mirrors and display cases for retail sectors in the Bowery. Our first market expansion was within the shipping industry and as architecture evolved, Lafayette began providing new glass installations in commercial and residential buildings.
For well over a century, Lafayette has been exceeding customer expectations with carefully chosen, high-quality materials installed with care and expertise. Today, we are proud to be leading the greater New York City area in full-service architectural metal and glass solutions.
Over the last 118 years, our outstanding performance is directly related to the experience, dedication and training of our team. You will benefit from the collective expertise of our leadership, management, administrators, glaziers and fabricators. Visit our projects page to see some of our work.
Lafayette’s core values are our professional commitment to delivering outstanding quality. Our mission, vision, business philosophy and values are the standard we conduct and measure ourselves by.
