“I’ve been very pleased with how Bow Tie have got on with the work.”
“Rafael demonstrated a great knowledge in respect of building work and was able to draw plans and give advice regarding interior design.”
“This house is cosy and comfortable but in a natural way. Our old house was of similar scale, area and build and if you wanted to heat a room you had to blast it and the air would then be very dry and that heat would quickly leak out.”
“I did get the benefit of regular updates and involvement in the project so I could see the quality of the work.”
“After 5 years of living here we are moving to the country and it breaks my heart to leave the beautiful house that you created for us. I wanted to say thanks again for the beautiful work that you did on our building – it’s been amazing to live in and you guys did a first class job. Would always recommend you if someone asked for an excellent contractor.”
