We would like to thank you for your excellent service and care in the provision and fitting of replacement windows to our 55ft narrow boat ADAGIO. We spent some time looking at various potential suppliers and were pleased with your prompt response. We made a request to visit your works where we were given  a no pressure explanation of the various styles and features of you range. We received excellent value for money and have no hesitation in recommending Channelglaze to any who might ask.

It’s one of the things we regularly say was worth it…

Just to say [a member of your team] was asking today if we’d been pleased with the windows and if we thought it worth the extra for [Channelglaze] double glazing and the answer is, absolutely, without a doubt. It’s one of the things we regularly say was worth it. Fantastic all through last winter when we were iced in for 8 weeks... of course, we’re not foolish enough to think there will never be any condensation – but it was minuscule. Our last boat was a nightmare.

Whilst on the subject of windows, I would just like to say how pleased I am that I have your double-glazed units throughout my boat, which enables me to lead a warm and comfortable life in the wintertime. The company, who built my boat, entered it in a competition run by the I.W.A in 1992, the year it was commissioned. The builder had taken a lot of trouble to use only the best materials for the boat and I have benefited from his choices. The windows have retained their looks, strength and shape since that time. Thank you for your kind help in the past and more recently.

Very professional job…

The fitting went well. Very professional job that we beat the worst of what turned into torrential rain that has lasted all night. However, the upside is that I know for sure that at this stage there are no leaks.

We are really pleased with the windows and it was amazing to watch the lads at work. We couldn’t believe how quickly the old windows came out and the new windows went in... As the weather has been so warm since the new windows have been fitted we don’t know what the insulation benefits will be yet. However, they are definitely more soundproof. We are very pleased and very impressed.

We had our windows supplied, for our boat builder to fit in 1996, and wouldn’t have hesitation in recommending Channelglaze windows to fellow boaters, boat builders and others. The glass was coated with a treatment that allowed rain to run off without marking or smearing, and we would confirm that it has worked effectively for the past thirteen years. Therefore we would be very pleased to allow interested customers to view our windows by arrangement with [your team] at Channelglaze.
