"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!"

- GREG, SEATOUN

"Very happy with this provider. We asked for a number of different options to be quoted and they provided a VERY detailed quote for all options. Great communication throughout the process. Tradesmen were friendly, professional and a pleasure to have in our home. They also left the place spotless after install. Very happy with our new double glazed windows. Would definitely recommend to others."

- HEATHER, KHANDALLAH

"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 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."

- RACHEL

"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."

- SHIRLEY

"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

"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."

- SIMON, WELLINGTON

"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"

- RACHAEL

"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

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

"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!"

- ANDREW, PETONE

"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

"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

"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, KHANDLLAH

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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."

- TONY, WELLINGTON

"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"

- KAREN, NGAIO

"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"

- BRIDGET, WELLINGTON

"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.

- TREVOR, LOWER HUTT

"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."

- RODGER, MIRIMAR

"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."

- IAN, LOWER HUTT

"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."
