......Wow! What can I possibly say that has not already been said about the quality and process of obtaining a Pentrex home? It was discouraging trying to find ANY decent house in Webster last year. The houses all sell immediately, no matter the condition. When I stumbled on these beautiful homes being built I thought there is no way I can afford this magnificent home and a new build at that. I found a lot that had only a basement poured, so I thought well maybe now I am in on a house soon enough. It was my good fortune that no one had discovered it yet. I then considered that maybe the house would not have the layout that I desired. As it turns out, these homes could not have been better thought out. After being in my home for almost a year I can say there is not one thing I would change if given the chance. As another stated, the quality of the construction and finishes is quite evident after viewing other homes. I found them to be inferior and higher-priced than the Pentrex homes. I was also fortunate enough to find the home early enough to change a few of the colors and countertop materials to fit my offbeat taste.
One thing that I was extremely impressed with was the efficiency and organized manner in which everything was accomplished. The Pentrex group works as a cohesive team, which is something that is becoming more difficult to find in today's work climate. Not only do they work as a unit, but there is excellent communication with their vendors (in my case, the lighting). The contact knew exactly how to navigate my tastes, my ignorance on lighting, and what would work in each given space. I dealt with other contacts and they all were so helpful and knew exactly what the deal was. No trying to explain everything and hoping it would all come together. As far as living in the house, I still feel like I am at some fancy resort or living someone else's extravagant lifestyle. The master bathroom is like an Italian villa and I am still not accustomed to having my main floor living space that I have always dreamed of! I can't recommend Pentrex enough for your new home! You won't regret it!
......Finding a 5-Bedroom house in Webster Groves in 2017 was discouraging. Every decent house sold within a few days. There were few fixer uppers and not much else left in our price range. We met with other builders before meeting with Pentrex. The differences were quite contrasting. The premium quality of work along with the excellent personalized service made it an enjoyable experience that we would do over again. Whether it was Tom, Teri, Austin or Ron, we always got a quick response about any questions or issues we had. Working with Pentrex was the easiest and best decision that we could have made.

......When we finally decided to downsize and build a ranch "to grow old in", we stumbled across the Pentrex Corporation and a very attractive wooded lot. We had never heard of them, but decided to research the company and talk to others that had built with Pentrex. Everyone had fabulous things to say about them,so we moved forward to pick out a floor plan and heavily revised it for our personal taste. We had built two other times with big-name builders in large subdivisions. The experience was like an assembly line. With Pentrex, it was the complete opposite. Tom & Ron were always available to meet and talk with us anytime of the day or night or weekends. No question, phone call, request or change order bothered their team. We were treated with the utmost respect and personal assistance at all times. The entire team was pleasant and polite anytime we spoke from the day we signed our contract. Our home is gorgeous and has so many upgrades that were standard with Pentrex. Every person that walks in our new home is amazed at the quality of work. The workmanship is superb and our home was completed before the promised completion date. Since we have been in our home, the supervisor is readily available to work out any items that need attention. We couldn't be happier with our choice in builders. Pentrex gets an A+ rating in our book.

... "We hired Tom Wolfner to build our house two years ago. The reason we picked Tom is that we wanted a small custom build house with many adjustments made to suit our life style. We wanted a luxury house which was small, accessible and located in Des Peres. Our son had recently built a custom house in Des Peres and we were impressed with the flexibility of Pentrex and the quality of construction.
The quality of the home comes from the quality of workers used by Pentrex. Tom commits to paying a premium for workers so he can hire the best of the trade who will stay with Pentrex. This is evident in the workmanship as well as the desire of each worker to please the owner.
To illustrate the degree of customization which occurs, our neighbor has the same basic floor plan as we do; however, one would not recognize the similarity on the interior or the exterior.
We have been in our house for over one year and are very pleased with the service of each Pentrex worker and the quality of the house. For anyone looking for a builder of a custom built home, we would highly recommend Pentrex."

.....Our building experience with Pentrex was a lot better than I anticipated. This was the first time my wife and I built, but have heard horror stories from firends. I'm happy to say that wasn't the case with Tom and his crew. We closed in April 2014 and since that date, when little things came about , Pentrex was always there within a day to correct them. They have been very responsive to all our questions and needs since day one of the contract. If we were to build again, we would definitely be willing to work with Pentrex.

.....We were very skeptical of having anyone build our home. We had heard horror stories of builders that wouldn't do what they promised, made mistakes that didn't get corrected, or had numerous hidden fees. Our experience with Pentrex was the exact opposite! They were attentive to every little detail and there were no hidden fees. As with any major undertaking, there were a few bumps in the road, but that is where Pentrex shined brightly! We didn't have to deal with any subcontractors at all. We just let them know the issue, and they took care of it at no charge! I can't imagine there being a better team to have build your home!

.....I was a first time home buyer just a few months ago and now I've gone from renting to owning a great home. Everyone at Pentrex Development made a potentially overwhelming process a great experience for me. After my first conversation with Tom Wolfner, I knew I was working with a real professional and that my first home dreams were in great hands. Thanks again.
......When we initially considered building a house in a developing subdivision, our families warned us that it would be a grueling process, the deadlines wouldn't be met as we anticipated, and it would be stressful. Fortunately, they couldn't have been more wrong. We began working with Pentrex almost a year ago, and everything about this process has been positive and pleasant. As we were first time home buyers, they were more than accommodating in answering our many questions, working around our existing apartment lease, helping us determine the best options for our new home, and keeping us informed of the building process. They made it feel like it was really our home from the moment the foundation was laid, as we were able to visit the site as often as wanted. We were in constant direct contact with Tom , which really set our minds at ease. Not only did they finish our home ahead of schedule, it was completed with quality work. When we asked that adjustments be made (e.g. we opted to add a light switch a the last minute), they were generally completed by the next day. We only have positive things to say about working with Pentrex, and we have already recommended them to our friends. Truly, they take good care of their home owners.

.....The home that Pentrex Development Corporation built for us was our first home that we had built from the ground up and Pentrex worked with us every step of the way. This is the only builder that I am aware of that you can take their basic floor plans and change them to fit your needs. The workmanship of the builder, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and roofers were superb.
-Butch & RayJean Simon
.....As a homeowner, Pentrex Development Corporation has been fantastic, both in their workmanship and in their timely response to our needs.
