Satisfied Customers

"We are new to the area and so needed to find a new company to install our new bi-fold doors. The website was clear and easy to navigate. And it was easy to get someone out to see us for a chat and to make sure we could do what we wanted."

K Jemma (Lydbrook) - June'21

"Efficient, friendly. This is the third time I have had windows fitted by Glevum."

K Lindesay (Cirencester) - May'21

"Brilliant start to finish with just one or two hiccups but these were resolved with very personal service. The issues we had were outside Glevums control and they worked with us to resolve them."

H English (Caldicot) - May'21

"The whole experience was far less stressful than we anticipated. The Team (Gavin and Luke) worked efficiently, quickly and were careful to maintain the COVID precautions.

T Robson (Gloucester) - April'21

Top class company and I am delighted with the quality of the windows, workmanship and care and attention to making it all happen so smoothly. Wish we had got the windows changed years ago!"

H Saunders (Gloucester) - April'21

"From my initial enquiry to the first visit by Mr Rose all was carried out extremely promptly & professionally... Matt & Scott have done a super job and I am very pleased with how my new bay windows look. I would not hesitate to recommend GLEVUM."

B Pickstock (Cheltenham) - March'21

"Excellent - very professional and courteous. The work was carried out to a very high standard. They kept all surrounding area covered to minimise dust etc. We had a couple of hiccups but they were rectified immediately and the after care cannot be faulted. Timing keeping was spot on. I would definitely use them again and would not hesitate to recommend to others."
