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 are at present sat here in a howling gale and pouring rain, completely snug and dry and couldn't be happier. We are still trying to get used to getting up in the mornings and not having to wipe condensation from the glass, the windows are all you promised.

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.

Nice to know there are some companies that know what 'customer service' means. That is why we chose Channelglaze at Crick. The other window companies answer to any questions was 'take a leaflet'. Your people answered all questions politely and helpfully. They were interested in our potential order without pressure selling. Pleasure to do business with.

Just to thank you very much for sending a replacement window rubber for our boat. It is now installed and fits perfectly. As mentioned previously, we are very pleased with our windows (barge type, with cream powder colour, supplied in 2001), and they have been much admired by other boaters.

I felt I must write to you about my windows you manufactured for me over 8 years ago. They have been a great success, far beyond my expectations. Even after more than 8 years of the gruelling use of a "Liveaboard" boat, the windows are in almost showroom condition today... It has been solely due to the high standard of materials, workmanship and the personal pride of every single operative in your factory, during the manufacture all those years ago. I am so glad, that after seeing other manufacturers, I decided that you were my choice of company. I was looking for a well-made window, with lasting qualities... Your staff were interested in giving me exactly what I wanted, and after visiting [your factory] a couple of times, you gave me the confidence to place my order with you. A big, big, BIG, Thank You! For your personal service and outstanding window design and manufacture.
