Our Promise

Our promise of craftsmanship and experience

We understand that having any new kitchen, never mind a handbuilt one, is a major decision. Our craftsmanship, experience, attention to detail and reputation all mean you can buy form Dowers with complete confidence; but we would say that, wouldn’t we? So in this section, we’ve included information about our guarantee, and stories from past projects to inspire, encourage and reassure you.

Our guarantee

Our guarantee is probably the only part of your Dowers kitchen that you’ll never use. As craftsmen, we take enormous care and pride in our work, and seek to get things right first time, every time. That said, even the best components (and it’s usually mechanical items, not the wood) can still spring the odd surprise on the most experienced maker, or conscientious owner.

So, if anything isn’t exactly as it should be once the installation’s complete, we’ll put it right, simple as that. And we’re so confident in our work that we don’t put a time limit on our guarantee: even if it’s years later, just call us and we’ll sort things out for you.
