“Whenever you’re doing construction it’s stress on the neighborhood, regardless of who’s doing it, but BOWA went above and beyond in reaching out to the neighbors. Instead of me being the buffer between the neighbors and the construction company, BOWA became the buffer between me and the neighbors, which was nice. I had compliments from neighbors after the fact.”Tucker & Kristine Shumack
"From the very first conversation, I was told ‘We’re not cheap, we provide great service and we charge for it.’ I knew I was buying the experience of working with people who were going to make my life easy and stress free, and I needed that.”Meryl Silverman

“The onsite project manager makes the process easier and less stressful. Going in we didn’t have a sense of how many people would be involved in a project of our size, but once you see it you appreciate the PM’s role even more...the PM is there every day to make your life during the project as seamless as possible.”The Primis Family
“No matter the issue, even long after the project has been completed, BOWA’s team is there to set things right. In talking with friends who chose other remodelers, it’s surprisingly clear that this type of follow through really is uncommon.”The Steindlers
“But when the BOWA team visited, it was different. They walked around the home and asked us how we use it, and how we wanted to use it. They took the time to understand our needs and then had the vision to think outside the box."Leigh Scott & Mark Cohen
