Architecture WK have specified Glazing Vision skylights for over 10 years. At the outset, we checked references and prices against competitors, as well as product specification, service and post installation care for our clients. In each area, Glazing Vision were ahead of their competitors. Their skylights are some of the best available and their after-sales support is excellent. We continue to recommend Glazing Vision skylights to our clients.

We are architects who work with Glazing Vision a lot, they give us very attentive technical advise and follow up with quote and installation assistance too. The products they sell that we have specified are simple, neat and well made in our opinion. They give a great view of the sky while looking very crisp on the interior. We have had several technical CPD sessions with their team which were helpful. Their rooflights must be simple to install as we haven't to date had any negative feedback from the trades installing them which is a good sign! We continue to work closely with them.
