"This was the third job we've had done by R&B Glass, and again the work has been done to a high standard. The communication along the way has been clear and timely. The people who have come on site have always been polite, considerate and capable. The work done has achieved what we wanted. The floor-to-ceiling timber-framed glazing is a feature of this 1962 house and we didn't want to compromise that through unsympathetic detailing. Rene took the time to explain his retro-fit double-glazing process, listen to our needs, and arrive at a solution that both we and he could accept. After using another local firm for retro-fitting double-glazing into a separate section of the house, we feel qualified to recommend R&B Glass ahead of other suppliers. Two months later we had the right combination of southerly wind plus steady rain, and there’s been no leaking. So the work has done exactly what we needed." ;

"When changing all our windows to double glazed U-PVC, we couldn't find a suitable front door replacement in keeping with our house design (we have an old solid 1930's door that is mostly glass with an unusual art-deco'esq design with colonial bars). For the same price as a new double glazed door, R&B Glass restored our old door, fitted it with a huge double glazed unit, recreated the art-deco colonial bar design, and installed suitable weather seals to make for an air tight closure. A much better outcome than installing a new door. The guys that installed and removed the door were friendly and tidy. They were happy to fill up old keyholes and dings. They kept me in the loop with everything they did (door was warped slightly due to age and the door frame was unusual, therefore weather sealing it wasn't straight forward). Door was away for a week and a half as we had it stripped and undercoated. They used plywood to plug the hole and we used the backdoor whilst it was away. In term's of price, we can't comment except it was the same cost as a new door and for us is a much better option. I asked for quotes from 2 other companies, neither of which responded. Overall, we are happy with the work and the people from R&B Glass and would recommend."

"We have used R & B Glass on 3 major projects over the years and have been extremely happy with their work and their "no problem is too big" attitude. I have recommended to both family and friends who likewise have been blown away with their professional attitude and skill."

"I have waited from April until now to post a comment to see how my R & B DOUBLE GLAZING would change the warmth of my home in Winter. WOW I am impressed. My first months power bill was $50 less than the corresponding time in 2017. The whole team's ethics were most professional but at the same time they were friendly and approachable. The job was finished in a timely manner to a very high standard even with the weather being against them and a hiccup which was not the fault of R&B. I certainly would recommend R & B."

"A great job done, the double glazing for the aluminium sliding door is terrific, no more crying windows could feel the difference the double glazing made as soon as the door was closed, should have had it done years ago. love the new glass for the front door. Everything was cleaned up after the guys finished and all rubbish taken away with them. This is the second job I have had done by Rene's team wouldn't go anywhere else great job boys.";

jenny 8 August 2018

"Trustworthy, high quality work and just really lovely people on the team. We had two very large sash windows retrofitted with double glazing, one was quite old and the team rebuilt the frame for us - it looks incredible! Great workmanship and very professional. I loved that they even vacuumed before finishing up. Great communication, very professional and would definitely use again.";

"We got several quotes for double glazing but we knew as soon as Dave Logan gave us the quote that R&B Glass was the right choice. Dave was completely honest about what they could do and what the potential limitations might be. He also inspired confidence that they would do the job properly, without cutting corners. Rene Goedhart and his team then delivered an absolutely first class job which exceeded our expectations. They were accommodating of some last minute variations we threw in. And the guys who did the job were completely genuine - and they cared! You could tell they took pride in what they were doing and genuinely wanted to do the best job possible. Subsequently, I was unsurprised to discover that my neighbours' parents had had their windows done by R&B glass as well, and had been left with a similar result and impression."

"We had R&B Glass retro-fit double-glazing to 15 medium size wooden sash windows in our 1920s Gray Young home in Wellington. This included refurbishing and reinstating existing leadlights on the interior of the sashes. They modified and/or replaced at least 3 sashes as part of the job. Great service throughout and we are very pleased with the end result. Rene and his team were very thorough and clear in their assessment and pricing of work to be done, communication throughout the job was good, and they were conscientious, punctual and tidy during the job. Plywood was fitted to the window cavities while the sashes were taken out and being worked on. A special challenge was presented by our front door which has an elaborate wooden design. Rene devised a way of fitting a single double glazed panel to this door but keeping the look from interior and exterior unchanged. Rene's team also fitted weather stripping to windows and doors to reduce drafts. Painting was completed expediously and to a reasonable standard. Since the job was completed we have noticed a big difference in the overall warmth of the house, but also an elimination of condensation in the bedrooms and a reduction in noise from exterior. Our only regret is that we didn't get the work done sooner. Rene and his team obviously enjoy their job - well done and highly recommended!"

"Top class service, communication and final result. So good to have someone in the trade communicate effectively as well as having a great product. Have now had 3 different jobs completed by Rene and his team. Will continue to use in the future as well. Highly recommend to others!" –

"We had a recommendation about R&B Glass from a family friend so went with them to double glaze our 1930’s bungalow. We had the 1930s “colonial bars” and retained this look with the double glazing. The results are fantastic. We highly recommend Rene and his team. Great service and quality workmanship. We have since had a glass splashback installed by R&B, and again we’ve had great service and quality workmanship." –

David and Suzanne Mace  -     August 2017

"I contacted r&b glass for a quote for table mirrors for an event i was creating. The quote was the most reasonable they made them exactly to order no problem and the service was great. The mirrors were ready exactly when they said they would be and the end result was perfect. I had so many compliments about the table settings, thank you R&B glass" –

R&B Glass & Glazing completed the double glazing on the upper level of our property in Karori [17 units]. It was a big job with what I thought access difficulties but no problem to these guys. Job all completed with frames painted and re-installed in 7 days.  Very impressive and very pleased with the finish, tidy up and end result. I highly recommend 

Paul - Karori.   March 2016


The door side light glass looks great - we are really pleased (and the workmanship is great). What a difference to the front door already - can't wait to be able to replace the door itself with something more modern.

Nicola - Lower Hutt.   Jan 2016


I highly recommend R & B Glass & Glazing. I have used them for the second time to double glaze both wooden and aluminium windows and I am very pleased with the outcome.

Jane, Churton Park.   Nov 2015


We recently had a room retro-fitted with double glazing (with argon gas and and LOW E excel glass etc).  The room had large and small windows - six in all.  The house is circa 1910, wooden sash windows - and thought it would not be achievable to double glaze and look good, and of course remain wooden sash.

From quote to after install follow up - we could not be happier. The project was exceptionally well managed (and I work in the project management world) and we were kept in the loop at all times, and the turnaround was fast, and ahead of schedule! We were worried about the mess, and also the inconvenience - but didn't even notice!  We have already seen an increase in the warmth of the room....and will move through the house, room by room and replace all the windows.

Highly recommend Rene and the team at RB Glass.      Kim - Kelburn.


We recently had our house double glazed by R&B Glass & Glazing (rbglass.co.nz). We have a mix of timber and aluminium frames, and the team from R&B did an outstanding job on it all. The new windows look great and best of all our house is so warm now we're not losing heat through our windows! Also, we can hardly hear the trains running along the back of our property anymore because of the sound-proofing double glazing offers.

The team who did the installation were polite and friendly, and tidied up after themselves. R&B weren't the absolute cheapest we got a quote from, but the quality of the work was far better than some of my friends have had from cheaper suppliers. 

Strongly recommended if anyone is suffering through a cold winter and wants to be warm next winter!

Hi Rene, Thanks very much for a the double glazed window that was installed. This double glazed window has made a big difference in the heating of our lounge. - Bronwyn  - Upper Hutt.
Thank you for completing the work on our windows. They are working superbly well and we are very pleased with them, but more than that we would like to say how happy we are with the way your staff went about their work. They were courteous, friendly quiet and efficient. - Howard - Wadestown.
Just a quick one to thank you and the guys for a very professional job :). The windows apart from one, went in on Friday and the difference was immediate.  The heater used to be on about 5/6 now it can keep better temperature in the room at 2.5/6.  It is also quieter and frames fit so well, there is no rattle.

 The flashings also received excellent attention.  They have been properly sealed over prepared wood.  I think I will allow them to 'weather' until spring when I can then paint them. - Rob - Wadestown.
Thanks again for the great work and please pass on our thanks to the guys for their professional. service.            Fiona - Lower Hutt.
Hi Rene, thanks to you and your crew doing such fantastic job again. we can feel the difference straight away winter will be a lot more comfortable. Susan - Khandallah.
Thank you so much for a great job. Your service has been excellent and stress free and your guys on site were a nice friendly bunch who were very obliging and a pleasure to have in my home :) . I will certainly recommend your team to anyone I know and my only regret is we didn't find you guys sooner and you could have done ALL our new windows! We are keen to get the bathroom windows done too but we will wait for warmer weather!! I'll be in touch about these. Not a big job but good to get done too. :) Cheers and again, many thanks for a great job and great service. Nicki – Island Bay
The windows are fantastic, thank you - we are delighted. We are already noticing the difference particularly with the temperature drop over the last week. - Steeve - Petone.
Hi R&B Just to let you know we are thrilled with the final work at our place. Thought you would like the photo attached of a Kereru that flew into the new unit a week after install. A spooky view! I reckon we would have been clearing up glass and a dead bird if it had been a week earlier. We believe the bird survived and so did the glazing. Now that's a testament to tough double glazing if there ever was one. The bird measured 700mm wide. Laurie - Waikanae.


Just like to say we are very happy with the work completed on our window. We'll recommend to others. 
John - Mt Cook, Wellington City.

Thank you for the double glazing, it was a pleasure dealing with all of your staff.     
Eddie - Johnsonville.

We moved to Waterloo and during the refit of our house we contacted R&B for a table top glass. Both their product and services are amazing. Especially Dave, he's a nice guy with good patience (we've made several changes on the order and he made them without a compliant!) Would like to recommend their quality product and service to neighbours around!     

Daisy - Lower Hutt.  

Hi Rene, Thanks a lot to you and your crew for doing such a fantastic job again. We can feel the difference straight away - winter will be a lot more comfortable.       Susan - Khandallah.


Thanks for doing the kids bedroom in the winter this year. It's made a big difference - to the point where my daughter stopped getting ear/throat infections (she'd had five up until the double glazing had gone in over the preceding 2.5 months).      I work in public health medicine and while I know from scientific literature that the health effects from insulation are real, I didn't expect the outcome to be so significant or stark in our case.         Rob - Wellington. 


 Thanks again for the completion of our double glazing. Everything done so professionally from the first visit, quote and the work done, especially welcome was the care taken at our home leaving everything spotless after each visit by the friendly team who did the work. 

Peter - Lower Hutt. 

 I would like to take this opportunity to compliment you on the standard of workmanship and friendly manner of your installers. I have not hesitation in recommending your firm and your installers to anybody planning to Double Glaze their homes.   Barbara  - Johnsonville.


Have to say we are blown away with how good the new window looks. We might even open the curtains now!!! Thanks so much.   Kathryne - Karori.


The guys did a great job thanks. Will highly recommend you.   Jenny - Seatoun.


Thanks to you and your team for a great job done double glazing . The windows look great. Will be in touch again soon regarding the shower screen.  Steve - Lower Hutt.


Thanks for a great job again. Please thank your team that worked at our house - a good job well done and completed. Another very happy customer.   Peter - Karori

Thanks for an awesome job. Very tidy. You guys are very professional. Thanks heaps. We recommend you all the time. Fiona - Lower Hutt

The double glazing is just great and makes the house much warmer. Many thanks to all the wonderful guys who put it in for me. Christine - Lower Hutt

We decided to replace 10 small windows in our 1960s house with double glazing. R&B Glass & Glazing were recommended to us by a friend and they were a good choice. We are very happy with the service and the quality of the installation. The finished product looks very good, works well and there was absolutely no mess. Best Regards Stuart - Wellington

I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the finished job. The guys did an excellent job thank you. Warmest regards Debbie - Titahi Bay

Thank you. I am so impressed. Please don’t forget what a difference your craftsmanship and service can make. Most important to me as a “learner house-owner” is feeling I made the right decision. Tiffany - Lower Hutt

It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to write a (positive) testimonial for any form of building work, but the double glazing recently completed by R & B Glass on my home certainly deserves a recommendation. Over a dozen large timber framed windows in our dining room were retrofitted with double glazed units, including a new door supplied with double glazing. The master bedroom had one timber window completely re-modelled and double glazed, and two aluminum joinery windows were also re-modelled and double glazed. All this work was carried out with great skill by Colin and team who were friendly and tireless in their efforts to complete the work to a very high standard, not always easy tasks as some of the windows were off square and had to be realigned. They also carried out the work in a tidy fashion (not always my experience with previous tradesmen.) Rene (the boss) also spent a considerable amount of time outlining the scope and options available throughout the process. In short – I can unreservedly recommend R & B as they provided quality work at a reasonable and competitive rate. Bill - Khandallah

"THIS TO THANK YOU AND YOUR TEAM FOR A GREAT JOB. I have been very impressed with more than one aspect of your team's work: 1) The standard of your work and craftsmanship has been excellent 2) Your guys clean up well after - when its work inside the house, we rate this as really important 3) Your engagement with the builder, Geoff Henderson, who had been pulling out old windows and replacing with new frames, has been seamless from my perspective and your guys have followed in behind soon after the new frames were installed. Great working together to deliver excellent service. Also of note - it was on your recommendation that I engaged Geoff Henderson and his team to do the window building work. I have been really impressed with the way Geoff has efficiently and promptly completed the work. In a word, a bloody good builder. WELL DONE INDEED, R&B. Do please pass this on to your team from a very satisfied customer. We look forward to completing the re-glazing of the rest of our house progressively over the next months as funds become available. Cheers " Peter - Karori, Wellington

"I'm wrapped with how the splashback looks and was also impressed with your workmen. Thanks and I certainly will be recommending R & B Glass to anyone I hear of who needs any glass work." Ann - Lower Hutt

"I would wholeheartedly recommend R & B Glazing to anyone considering double-glazing. I recently had my windows and external doors retrofitted and was delighted by the total professionalism, quality of workmanship and communication style of the the company. A point of difference between them and other companies was that in quoting for the job Rene took time to consider each window and door and to talk over with me ways in which the double glazing exercise could work as an opportunity to solve other problems. In the case of the doors this meant replacing weak and shabby lower wooden panels with toughened glass, which not only looked great but connected the house with the garden better and also improved security. For the windows it sometimes made sense to replace an opening casement with a fixed unit, thus reducing draught and a clutter of fastenings. I was also offered a full and carefully explained range of options comparing the percentage of heat loss reduction. Rene's approach immediately inspired me with confidence which was justified by the job done. The men were punctual, good humoured, reliable, considerate and careful. " Jenny - Wilton

"I couldn't recommend this company more! They did a fantastic job double-glazing my wooden shash windows. They not only kept my home tidy, they respected the needs of my family and they made sure that my blind cat was kept safe during the work. They were the best tradesman I have used in a very long time. They also had an amazing work ethic, they came back to fix the smallest of details until we were totally happy with the job- without issue! I am so impressed. Great, polite and friendly staff too! They were always professional too. Thank you for doing such a great job. We are so pleased with it."

"These guys were absolutely great. It was a difficult job retrofitting 8 doublehung sash windows and 2 doors with double glazing. They were outstanding in every aspect from their first contact to completion. In fact they went the extra mile to make sure the final result was the very best they could achieve. I have no hesitation in recommending R&B Glass and Glazing."

"I was thinking of putting in tiles around the stove and bench area. When I saw the glass splashback work that had been done at a friends place I knew I was not going to waste my time with messy tiles. It is so easy to clean. Folks, dont waste your time with tiles that age and get grubby. "

"Efficient friendly service. Very pleased with the appearance of the windows and the draught free atmosphere in our 1918 apartment. Looking forward to lower heating bills in the coming winter."

"R&B have just finished double glazing the second floor of our home. Given the cost of this exercise, I did plenty of reseach before I selected R&B. I was very impressed with the work done and the significant difference it has made to our home. My standards are very high (and usually not met!) but I am very pleased to advise that they were achieved by R&B. I would have no hesitation in recommending their work."

"Very prompt and friendly- great work! "

"We got all our windows double-glazed, keeping the original framework. Fabulous work from R&B. Great attention to detail, high quality work. We are very, very pleased with the final output. We had absolute trust in them and they delivered great work."

"We replaced most of our windows with double glazed units into the existing aluminum joinery. R&B we’re really helpful, professional and gave great advice. The work was fast, efficient and tidy. It’s made a huge difference to our home – it’s warmer and hardly any condensation. All round excellent service."

"Excellent work, were careful and courteous round the house. Nothing was a problem and All work was as requested a good job well done"

"R&B just installed 2 glass splashbacks for us. One was a tricky shape and we had inserted a new piece of wood in the area since the templating but they found a workaround and did a magnificent job, on quote, on time - you couldn't ask for better. They go the extra mile for you and communication is excellent."

"We had 16 double glazed window units put into our house by R & B. We have no hesitation recommending them for similar work. Their workmanship and communication were excellent."

"We had double glazing done in the kitchen 5 years ago by one of the owners of this company, which has been excellent. No fogged up windows, no noise, good insulation. Last week we had our living room windows done (double glazed) Looks great, we are looking forward to use this room more as it is much easier to heat now. The views over the Hutt Valley are amazing, no more fog"

"With all the nasty weather we have had lately (July) I was not looking forward to the replacement of the huge glass roof in our pool area. However, the guys turned up on the dot, and worked for 2 weeks trough mainly bitterly cold and wet weather. I am very impressed with the job they have done, besides that, it was a pleasure to have gentlemen tradesmen around the house. 10/10"

"The guys did a great job. Excellent communication and workmanship. Thanks"

"We had two broken windows in the dinning room, Rene did a fantastic job and we were extremely pleased with the outcome. We can highly recommend this buisness."

"We had various work done, including window repairs, fitting of a kitchen splash back and the replacement of a conservatory roof with glass. We were delighted at the prompt and efficent service and standard of workmanship and would have no hesitation in recommending them to customers requiring similar work."
