Hollie Fern | Kent Nov 2017

Refurbishing a well worn cowl

This is the first time I’ve used Dude and Arnette to renovate the Oast Cowls that have not been looked at for over 10 years. Darren had great customer service skills and regularly came out to site to make sure everything was okay and going well. The cowls were looking tired and really needed some TLC and the difference from the before and after photos are incredible. All the team at Dude and Arnette were friendly and helpful and would recommend them to anyone. We were so pleased with the work carried out we would like an agreement for annual maintenance and every so many years a refresh from Dude and Arnette. Thank you very much!

Doug Wood | Faversham Sep 2017

Refurbishing a well worn cowl

This is the second time I’ve used Dude and Arnette to maintain the cowls at our Faversham design office. Darren and his team provide an exceptional, professional service, with no fuss, superb communication and importantly they do what they say, when they say they are going to do it. There were no nasty surprises, and even addressed another issue we had while they were there. I can’t fault their service and would have no hesitation recommending them.

Refurbishing a well worn cowl

From the first enquiry Darren and all the team at “Dude and Arnette” were extremely professional. Following storm damage we required a completely new cowl for one of our eighteenth century Oast buildings Frasers at Coldharbour Farm. As we are a diversified farm business, the repairs had to be executed in a tight timeframe. Darren liaised with my roofer and the works were subsequently carried out within the required timescale and to an extremely high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend the team , I am extremely happy with out new cowl, thank-you!

After moving into our Oast house in April, we felt it just missed having its top hat on! Whilst searching the internet for information I came across the Dude and Arnette website, its was really informative and after speaking with them they came and viewed received a quotation, When the team arrived to fix the cross bow they were friendly, knowledgeable and hardworking with a passion for what they do, then the following week there it is in all its glory! – it just completes the house, so pleased and would recommend to any Oast House owner in the country!
