Testimonials

Here are some recent testimonials we have received:

"Bowmite are terrific. I bought a wreck and Bowmite completely rebuilt it, installing heating, LX, a roof, all the plumbing and arranged for an engineer to visit, as well as ensuring that the local council were happy with all the work. They came in on budget and on time. They take care of everything, and offer advice and help you make the right decisions and choices all the way along the process. I think Tony Short has a great eye for design and space and, he gets the balance right in spaces that I might have needed an architect for. Bowmite will do their best to respond to an emergency, and on the occasions I have needed something done urgently, they have been there.

Bowmite's great team of builders take great care of the workspace, always clean it up at the end of the day, minimise dust and disruption, are efficient, friendly and punctual. Bowmite moved my kitchen in record time. I recommended Bowmite to friends, and they have been really pleased with the excellent work. They offer advice and help you consider all the options before making a choice about some work, decorating or improvements. When my heating went wrong, they came immediately and sorted the problem and Bowmite have built beautiful cupboards, wardrobes and shelving units for me."
D. Hopkins, London E9

"I have worked with Bowmite for over five years on many projects ranging in size and scale from the creation of a library in a Belgravia town house to repairing water damage caused by a leaking shower. Throughout the process from the briefing onwards, the attention to detail and quality of work is maintained. Tony, Danny, Jane and their team are professional, courteous, conscientious, dependable, trustworthy and honourable. The estimates are realistic and any potential extra charges flagged early in the process. Furthermore projects are always completed on time.

In this day and age with rogue building firms and unscrupulous building practices, I would not hesitate to recommend them."
Mr L. White

    • The above in a list of some but not all of the works that Bowmite carried out for us. We always found them to be helpful when asked for any advice. The works were carried out in 3 phases over a period of 18 months during which time we were able to carry on with the day to day running, with only minor changes needed. This was due in part to Bowmite adapting to the needs of the nursery and working around us. Any queries we had were quickly answered. The quality and finish of all the works were excellent, we are a very busy nursery and all works are still good and standing the test of time.

      Our works were carried out in the timescale allowed and had only minimal delays, caused by Buildings Control and Bowmite made up most of this time by working weekends.

      "Bowmite Ltd have carried out several programmes of work for us over the last 20 years. These have ranged from internal works to construction (kitchen/diner extension; house frontage). What I like about Bowmite is the attention to detail and project organisation they bring from larger scale works to the domestic environment. This means that estimates are complete and accurate; work is done to a high standard; communication and documentation is always timely, clear and precise; crew work full days, and cleanup afterwards. They look to build a long-term relationship, so rely on the reputation of their work and service (after the first project I found that they didn’t need project managing as their own management is so effective). Bowmite cover the full range of skills required (plumbing, wiring, drainage, construction, joinery, roofing, decoration,etc.). They can happily work with architects or with the enthusiastic amateur to evolve and execute workable, attractive build projects.

      They are busy because they are good, and they are always my first choice for projects. I hesitate to recommend them as I want them available for myself."
      Mr P. Lewis

      "We have used Bowmite for a wide range of works on our house, including roof and stucco repairs, joinery works, garden and landscaping, lighting and internal and extemal decorating. We have always found their work to be of high quality and fairly priced. Quofes are produced swiftly and efficiently- and stuck to. Bowmite start a job when they say they will and are able to accommodate the client's change of mind along the way. They seem to command a loyal work force most of whom have worked for the firm for many years. We have found all the employees a real pleasure to have around and have been impressed by their constructive input and attention to detail when a job can be approached in more than one way. We would entrust any of them with the house keys. Communication with the firm is good too. This can be either be by way of a partner's mobile or through the office if the paftner is out, the very pleasant and switched-on administrative staff will ensure messages are delivered and phone calls returned.

      "Bowmite Ltd. has been working on our home for the past five years. We have done extensive renovations and we feel very fortunate that we have had their excellent services during this project. We have been living in ow home during the entire process and have appreciated the care that has been taken to try to minimize the inconvenience of having construction taking place while we tied to continue with our daily lives. Considerate precautions were taken, whenever possible, to preserve the family living spaces in order to minimize the impact that such an upheaval can cause.

      Bowmite's dedication to providing an outstanding finished product remains constant - whether it be coming from their workshop or, something that has been sourced from an outside supplier. They are committed to providing quahty work and quality service. When I wanted a particular panel moulding they worked diligently to create the exact style I wished. Numerous meetings, an exterior visit, all done with a positive and problem-solving attitude..This instilled great confidence in us as to the calibre of attention and dedication that was being put into our home renovations. Bowmite's standards are high which is reflected in the attention to detail and the willingness to do all that it takes to get a job done right. This strong work ethic and positive attitude allows for a genuinely strong client relationship to be maintained. One built on trust, mutual respect and partnership which is of the utmost importance during the creative communication process. Although we work with an interior designer, there have been many times when Danny has contributed an idea that has firrther enhanced the project or prevented us from making a costly design mistake. In fact, we welcome his attendance at our design meetings.

      We also have been impressed by the workers that are on site. Danny and Tony have instilled their team with high work ethic and values. The same applies to outside suppliers who are always supervised by one of the team. They are all professionals who come into our home and treat it with respect and, above all, leave it spotless each and every day when they leave. This has been greatly appreciated. Although we are looking forward to seeing the completion of our home very soon and this will be a much anticipated event, we often say how we will miss these men who have played such a large part in our lives since we moved here! In conclusion, it is without hesitation that I would highly recommend the services of Bowmite for any renovation work required."
