We have really appreciated working with Bowers Design Build on four major projects at our home. We have never had great experiences with designers before but the Bowers staff has been amazing. Their designer got our style/ideas right away and worked very hard at getting just the right look. During construction, having site supervision on the job each day added a real comfort level that things would be done right. Our site supervisor was fantastic with neighbors, our dogs, you name it. We found the entire Bowers staff to be very polite and attentive. We are glad we chose them.

Michelle and David Baldacci

Our renovation project was a long time in planning for us. We knew we wanted to find partners to help us create a home that fit the way we lived and presented a unique aesthetic – practical, beautiful and nurturing. A unified design concept was especially important to us.

Our experience with Bowers exceeded our expectations. Our ideas and concerns were foremost in every aspect of the process. We were listened to, challenged and always, always presented with options to achieve the results we wanted. Attention to customer satisfaction, service – well beyond the date the last punch list item was completed – and a stubborn dedication to quality are bare boned standards of our experience with Bowers Design Build. Not only was our input valued, the linking of design, planning and construction offered us a seamless experience with no worry that ideas clarified at the design table would be problematic at the construction phase. We have only the highest praise for the extraordinary team of professionals at Bowers Design Build.

Oakie and Andy Russell

Laurie and I want to say how pleased we are with the renovation work you and your staff have performed on our house. Matt, Bill, and the rest of the team have been fantastic to work with and their levels of expertise and professionalism have been exemplary. We also truly appreciate how you and your staff have treated this as a partnership. We know we made the right choice.

P.S. We appreciate the team checking in on how we weathered the winter storm.

Matt and Laurie Plishker

Thank you. We love the house. The whole experience was downright pleasant, and I don’t think I have ever heard a construction story where the customer was totally satisfied. Thank you for your professionalism, attentiveness and excellent communication. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly.

Jim and Celeste Kacedan

This letter is a long time coming and I hope it finds you well. As you know, Becky and I are elated with the renovation that the Bowers team completed in our home. As such, I thought I would take sometime to express well-deserved recognition and thanks. In some ways, I am in a unique position to write this letter as 1) we have now lived in the renovated house for several months post completion and 2) my experience in the real estate and construction business affords me the opportunity to understand “what it takes” to get the job done. To specifically state why we are so happy is difficult, but I will try:

Chris, Becky, Meg, Anna and Brandy Garland

We would definitely use Bowers again. Before we started the project, we didn’t appreciate the complexity and extensiveness of the design phase. The Bowers design team took this from a project we would probably have been content with to one we are exceedingly happy with. We have cooked many meals in our new kitchen; we wouldn’t change a thing (and Ron is a quite hard-to-please home chef). The “smartness” of the Bowers team was soooo gratifying and reassuring. People “got” what you wanted and made it better. Taking two feet from the dining room was a genius idea. And, preserving the butcher block and putting it on wheels… great. Bowers people think inside, outside and all around the box!

Ron and Anne Bergamesca

Thank you so much for our beautiful home! We are so pleased with how the entire project turned out, from the beautiful design to the excellent quality of construction and craftsmanship in the final product. We are also very pleased with being back in our home in time for the holidays. We are so grateful and happy that you have lived up to your reputation of being on time and on budget. We are enjoying so many complements from friends, neighbors, and relatives who tell us how beautiful the house is. We also are enjoying how incredulous everyone is when we tell them that you delivered the house on the date specified and that you were on budget-as you guarantee. As we hear stories from them, we know that you are an exception in the remodeling business.

Edith and Michael Hughes

Our overall impression is that you guys are FANTASTIC! Hands down the best contractor we’ve ever used or even heard of! There’s no question that we’ll bring all future work to you and we’re giving nothing but rave reviews to all of our friends and neighbors. We are thrilled with the house and all the level of service your team provided. Thanks for the great experience and thank you for working around our child’s birth date. We appreciate the last minute flurry of activity to bring the job to a close ahead of schedule!

Karen and Scott Richardson

Our house had a small 1960s kitchen and no family room on the main level. We desperately needed more kitchen space and a room that could double as family living space, as well as be nice enough for entertaining. Bowers’ attention to detail from the design phase through the construction phase was wonderful. They treated our home as if it were their own. Since we lived in the house during construction, they made sure the house was clean every day, made sure we could function in the house after they left each afternoon, and we could set our clock on how reliable they were with commitments. We were almost sorry when it was over. Now, when we are in our house, we feel like we are on vacation. Bowers was a joy to work with.

Lisa Burns and Henry Chamberlain

We did a whole house remodel that won a National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) award. The award was flattering, but more importantly, our overall experience with Bowers Design Build was great. Not only is the quality of their work wonderful, but they were easy to work with. They were very good about being clean and safety conscious around our children. The project was well scheduled and met our budget expectations to the dollar. We especially appreciated their calm approach and personal attention.

Dave and Patty Freeman

The first time we heard of Bowers Design Build, a friend said, “You should give them a call. I’ve seen their sign in front of the same houses more than once.” We are so glad we called them. They made our remodeling experience highly enjoyable. We felt respected and listened to during each step of the process. They are very precise, and gave an awesome commitment to timeline and budget. We would never use another builder!

Sheila Wynne and Larry Houck

We did a master bedroom and bath remodel. Bowers Design Build was very professional, kept things neat every day, respected our privacy, and kept us very well informed of daily progress. Bruce had such creative ideas. He designed a project that was beyond what we thought was possible for the space. In fact, we recently sold that house and we’re convinced that it was the remodel by Bowers that sold it! We were very pleased and would use them again without hesitation.

Larry and Shelley Scheerschmidt

When we hired Bowers Design Build for a complete office renovation, we were under extreme time constraints because of patient scheduling. We could only afford to shut down our practice for a maximum of two weeks. Bruce Bowers promised that the work would be completed on time and due to the diligent work of him and his staff, we reopened exactly as he had promised… two weeks from the start of the project. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the work and timeliness in which it was completed and would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Drs. Reed and Fissell

In short… Bowers Design Build has been very responsive and professional in their work. We’ve already recommended them to family and friends.

Ernst and Sara Volgenau

Obviously from the way I filled out your post construction survey, you can tell we were very happy with Bowers and honestly all aspects of our project. I can’t think of anything that could have been better.

Lisa Alpaugh

Bowers did a large renovation on our home. We sincerely trusted the team, which was very important to us. The on-site management of our project was a key factor in how smoothly our project progressed. The management team was very accessible and consistently went the extra mile for us. The construction team arrived daily, on-time, and completed the project on the date promised upfront. We really appreciate that they didn’t bill us for making small changes that weren’t in the contract; like moving a wall in the master bedroom or painting the foundation. They also stood behind the quality of their work, such as replacing a toilet that the plumber scratched by accident. Bowers’ overall attention to detail from the design to the final piece of woodwork was exemplary. Even our neighbors commented that they were very impressed by the Bowers teams’ professionalism and energy. If we were to do it again, we’d choose Bowers for sure.

Peter Thieman and Monica Aquino-Thieman

Bowers Design Build has been a delight to work with. Starting with their design process and throughout the job they were very flexible with my ideas and requests. The process allowed us to create the unique space that we needed. Our designer was invaluable, especially with finding hard to find lighting options and other unique building materials. Our site manager was on location every day to handle the subcontractors, deliveries, and our questions. We were able to see first-hand the quality of work done at each phase of the construction. Everyone associated with the job was professional and pleasant. And, despite the reputation in the building industry of things taking longer than planned… our project was actually finished early! We couldn’t be happier.

Carolee and Michael Jakes

We can’t emphasize enough how much we’ve enjoyed working with everyone in the BDB organization. For an undertaking that is stressful by its very nature, you all worked so hard to make it a truly great experience for us and we cannot thank you enough. Add the quality of your workmanship to your process management and you have a truly winning formula. We simply LOVE my new kitchen! And, we love that we got it without a lot of drama.

Susan and Andy Cohen

This is the third project that we’ve done with Bowers and they just keep getting better. This project, to renovate our kitchen and living space and renovate bathrooms to accommodate our growing family, was a pure pleasure. The design process went very well. Our desires and ideas were incorporated in a design that when built, works really well for our family. Since we both have careers, the interior design help was tremendous in helping us to select fixtures and finishes in an efficient way. The best part, though, was that our youngest child was born during the renovation and the Bowers team could not have been more kind and accommodating. Our home was cleaned especially well every day after construction because they cared so much about keeping mom and newborn baby safe. We are very happy we have the Bowers team to call on anytime we need anything done to improve our home.

Arlene Cantor and Greg Bowen

When we were looking at companies to perform our recent renovations, Bowers Design Build came highly recommended in terms of doing things “right”. In the end, this was the deciding factor in our decision to hire Bowers. With our busy lives, we wanted to hire a company that would work with us as a team to construct our new space the way we wanted it, and not work against us by resisting modifications and adjustments as the work progressed and dictating decisions for us. Bowers Design Build exceeded our expectations in this and many other respects and delivered a terrific end result that we love. We contribute a large percentage of this success to your patient, professional and creative employees in both the design team and the construction team. They made sure we knew that their number one priority was to make sure that we were happy. We are very happy with our decision to hire Bowers Design Build, and we would definitely recommend your company to neighbors and friends.

Lynn and Glenn Pfadenhauer

We finished our whole house renovation more than two years ago and we still walk into our house and say “We love our home”. The Bowers team has been great. The old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ is so true. Remodeling is costly and can be very complicated. The peace of mind they have given us, both during the project and afterwards, has been worth every penny we paid for the project. We did a whole house renovation project that took almost two years to accomplish from design through construction. They made what could have been a real nightmare a pure pleasure. They delivered the project a week earlier than they’d committed from the start and there were no monetary surprises. We paid exactly what we were told upfront. We can’t say enough about their skill level, but equally as important, the genuine care they have given us as clients. We highly recommend Bowers to anyone who wants to have a great remodeling experience.

Jeff and Ann Goettman

Doug and I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our “new” home. We couldn’t be more pleased with the final product, and we feel very fortunate that we found you to do the job for us. Doug and I appreciate the professionalism that the entire staff exhibited throughout the process, the quality of the work that was done, the ideas and advice that you all shared with us, and the speed in which the job was complete. Overall, we are very pleased with Bowers and we are recommending you to everybody we know who are in the market for renovations. The experience was very positive for us and we LOVE the final product.

Janet Million

We feel so fortunate to have found a design/build firm like Bowers. They gave us the highest possible quality of work, were very enjoyable to work with and we found them to be extraordinarily honest and trustworthy. Bruce’s design suggestions were outstanding, the crew was cheerful, and the finished product has exceeded our expectations. The fact that our project won a national award is icing on the cake!

Rich and Nancy Fried

Honesty has all but gone out the window these days, but the people at Bowers Design Build are an exception. They are quality minded, thorough, and on time. Bowers wants to do everything possible to make the experience the best it can be. We have trusted them with three different projects to date and are working with them on a fourth… that’s how much we think of them.

Madeline Hahn and Ed Clark

We were without a kitchen for almost two months while ours was being completely remodeled. What could have been a disastrous event was made a pleasant experience by the Bowers team. They set up a very nice temporary kitchen space, which lessened the stress. We had the construction schedule up front, so we knew what to expect each week. They have tremendous attention to detail and truly listened to us. They were on time and on budget AND we trusted them. What more can you expect? By the way, Mark was an absolutely wonderful Site Manager! We highly recommend them.

Lynne and Nicholas Giordano

We had a very pleasurable experience with Bowers Design Build. They went out of their way to make the process a good experience for us. They were very courteous, clean and conscientious. It’s been several years since we completed our project, but every time we drive up to our house – we still love it! We recommend Bowers all the time.

Don and Alice Gross

If you want a project done right the first time, call Bowers Construction. We’ve found that they have imaginative solutions to our building projects, and they’re a pleasure to work with.

Priscilla and John TaylorThree major projects with Bowers Design Build to date

It was a pleasure to have the Bowers’ crew in our home, they truly became part of our family during our renovation. We would recommend them to our friends, in fact we have! From the design phase until the finishing carpentry touches, we experienced a professional and courteous Bowers Design Build team.

Jennifer Koehl

We can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful work you’ve done on our house! You all continue to get our vote for best in the area!

Chuck and Linda Olwell

You did an absolutely fantastic job! We’re very pleased with the new house!

Colleen Hartman and Carl Gaither

Our favorite testimonial…



We are absolutely delighted with our new house. If we had known how easy this was going to be, we would have done it years ago. You have a great team of people and they have done wonders with our house. Even when issues came up, we worked through them. They have treated our house as if it were theirs, attending to the little details and the bigger ones to make it all look and function better. We can’t thank you and your company enough for all you have done for us.
