“Thank you for the timely completion of your work, and most importantly, for what is an exquisite job. The windows do indeed look superb!
It has been a real pleasure working with you and I also found your insight into colour and design extremely helpful.
The quality of your work is outstanding and exactly what I was seeking.”
Tony Basoukeas – Brighton
“Having recently moved to a 17th Century house, I retained Lightworks to replace ten awful wooden windows with traditional leaded lights. The supply of new steel casement frames needed particular attention to their construction as did the stonework into which they were to be inserted.
They certainly received this to the highest level.
On fitting, the two installers really knew their craft and were very pleasant and polite as well as being incredibly tidy and helpful. They left everything in the room exactly as they found it, in preparation for their next day’s work, – indeed they were virtually invisible.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Lightworks for any requirement to windows and such fixtures that need more thought and expertise than usual.”
Lee Robinson – Pateley Bridge
“We are absolutely delighted with the window and want to thank you all again for all your hard work and effort with it.
I know the design was a challenge but in the end you came up with something spectacular.
There was a PCC meeting last night which should have been in school but at the last minute was moved to church where all were able to look at the window
for the first time. They thought it was fantastic! I had an email from one of the PCC members later who wrote,
“I think the window is truly beautiful. It illuminates a dark corner of the church in a deeply spiritual way….very special indeed.”
Nellie Cowell – St. Michael’s Church, Grimsargh
Just writing to say how pleased I am with the restoration of the window dedicated to my mother
at Emmanuel Church, New Brighton. As an ex-conservator at Liverpool Museum its good to know
there are still craftsmen (and I hope women) still working.
