Directory advert:

Bowling Home Improvements are based in Ferryhill but we cover the whole of the North East. We cover all aspects of construction work from barn conversions and full house renovations to electrics, plastering and joinery.

We love what we do and pride ourselves on the reputation that we’ve earned through our hard work.  We work to an incredibly high standard and provide fantastic customer service.

When did you start your business and why?:

We started Bowling Home Improvements in March 2017 as we felt ready to enter the world of self employment and develop our construction company.

What gives your business the edge?:

We do!

We love the extra detail, like the bespoke metal staircase or the wall of glass blocks that we created. We don’t do off the shelf products, instead we create things to suit our customers needs.

What is the best thing about running your own business?:

The variety of work that we get to do. Despite only being in business for 6 months we have completed some amazing projects and have some incredibly exciting ones lined up!

And what is the worst!?:

Being so busy (It’s a nice problem to have!!).

Describe a typical day running your business and balancing family life:

My husband, Richard, goes out to complete the work during the day while I stay home with our son, Harry. Our home office comes to life once Harry is in bed!

How do you envisage your business changing over the next 5 years?:

It’s crazy how much we have changed in 6 months, so I can’t begin to imagine how we will change in 5 years! Hopefully lots more work, more staff and an even bigger reputation!

Do you have any advice for other Women in or starting a business?:

Be yourself, you are your own USP!
