......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 are experienced home owners and have done extensive rehab on 2 homes including home additions and 5 apartment buildings. We are familiar with a variety of building materials and techniques and that made us perhaps a bit more knowledgeable about what we wanted in our home. Tom Wolfner was excellent to work with. He is very professional, smart, funny and reasonable. Those are the best traits to have in your home builder since it takes all of those. Our home turned out great and has met all of our expectations. We made several changes from the original plan including a unique front exterior. Tom and his team did a wonderful job of implementing our wishes and our home is admired by all that visit.

.....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.

.....As a homeowner, Pentrex Development Corporation has been fantastic, both in their workmanship and in their timely response to our needs.
