Testimonial

Hi all, quick E Mail just to say thanks - brilliant product, the Bower Beams saved me so much work it is untrue!! Easy to fit and work perfectly, I know they are quite simple as a concept, but so often you buy workarounds and they just prove to be a waste of time. Absolutely would use you again and will recommend to a builder friend as this was such a positive experience and easy job for me to do on my own as a DIY fix. I did it over two lazy, coffee fueled mornings (4 joists) but reckon I could have done it in one morning if I'd been bothered.

Thanks to all and take care. Samna.
