Some of our happy customers…
This theme is simply amazing. I can customize EVERYTHING! I have choosing code quality because I can only select one. All themes should be as easy as this one. GLWS!!
By far the is the best theme on Evanto Market. I have tried many of them but this one is easy to use and very flexible. I would highly recommend it to those who are looking for an easy customizable theme. Very nice work done. A+.
Great theme (BuildPress) with very helpful customer support (ProteusThemes) with consistently the shortest response time I have experienced until so far.
We are establishing a new building company and found the Buildpress Theme as the most convenient regarding the design and features it provides. Proteus support is excellent and they answer questions promptly.
This is BY FAR THE EASIEST theme I had to install. The support documentation is 100% accurate. Well done ProteusThemes, I will definitely be using more of your themes in the future. Good Luck on sales.
5 stars – great mix of super design and very helpful support. I will be looking out for what this team creates in the future. They really know what they are doing. Well done.
This is a great theme that can be used for much more than simply builders (I am using it for a financial website). It works great and the support team and amazingly fast responding to issues! Thanks guys.
So far from purchasing the theme to installing it and discussing it with the developer the service has been nothing short of outstanding.
The content import via their server was the best I’ve seen in years. I normally have such a headache with the XML imports, so this is brilliant.
