What Our Clients Say

To their upfront work in pre-con, timely coordination during shop drawings, execution in the field and solving a problem when something unexpected comes up; Steven and his team are always there to be part of the team and make sure everyone is successful. It gives me great comfort having them on my team because they’re honest, take pride in their work, and always do what they say they’re going to do.

Chris Palmer

Senior Project Manager
Choate Construction
I just finished my first project with Craven Glass. It has been a very pleasant experience. Steve and his team have been nothing but professional. They provided shop drawings extremely early in the process and materials were available when needed and installed in a timely manner. There were some issues with installation outside of their control and Craven worked diligently to make the corrections accordingly. I would be glad to use them on any project in the future and would highly recommend them.

If you chose to do business with Craven Glass, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what you get in a partner. From the moment I started working with their team, they have been top notch. I say that in the sense that one of the most important things to me in this business, is a partner who does what they say they’re going to do. I have found time and time again with Craven, they do exactly what they say they will. Even if it’s hard, difficult or not even their responsibility, they put forth the effort to ensure that the client is happy. I cannot tell you how much that has meant to me.
