Being the first time I have had to replace / design and fit polycarbonate roofing I could not locate a necessary component, I used the ‘chat box’ facility and was very pleasantly surprised as to the helpfulness and knowledgable agent to whom I was connected to, he immediately gave me the part number and reviewed my ‘on-line’ basket and informed that I had not requested the correct colour of one of the items in my basket. The delivery was as promised and in fact arrived a day earlier than originally estimated to which I was kept informed. Thank you Clear Amber I will definitely order from you again when I have to replace the roof to the other half of our conservatory which I am rebuilding. Keep up your excellent service and customer care ethos. Very well done guys and girls.
Easy to order online and a speedy delivery. A very good product that I found was straight forward to install after I viewed the videos and read the product info. It was very useful to download and print out the installation instruction which I found having to refer to a number of times. Read and measure, measure, measure before you cut and drill. Overall very pleased with the end result.
