Network Glaziers’ aim is to establish a group of suppliers (individuals, companies and staff) who have earned for themselves a reputation for excellence in their field. They will also have a sound background of experience in emergency response and have earned an indisputable reputation for integrity and fair trading.
These suppliers undertake to maintain this reputation by dealing openly and honestly with those clients who have suffered loss or damage, and with the insurance industry who underwrite such loss.
