Fort Myers, FL 33915

Dear Jack,

We just wanted to take the time to personally thank you for our beautiful new kitchen!
We initially chose your company due to your ability to handle everything from cabinets and granite to electrical, plumbing, painting, and more. In addition, your proposed design fit our needs perfectly.

Our project began on August 5th and was completed on August 26th as promised. The men that came to our home to perform the work were great.  They were all very helpful - much more so than we had expected.  They came to work the day and time they said they would be here so we never experienced the dreaded "no-show" (a definite relief...).

We are thrilled with the results.  The cabinets are of excellent quality as was the work completed. We will definitely recommend your services to our friends who are looking to have renovations/construction done.
Thanks again for the great experience and outstanding kitchen! We’re sure the pictures enclosed speak for themselves.

To: Balentine Builders,

Looking for a building contractor in Florida can be scary. We read daily about work not completed on time, being done incorrectly, or not being done at all. Or maybe just “shoddy workmanship” that falls apart when the builder considers the work done.

Let us introduce you to a contractor who is honest, fair and truly has his customers at heart: Balentine Builders.

Jack Balentine showed up on time to estimate the job and came back with an itemized bid showing the payments to be made, 1/3 to start, 1/3 midway and the final third when we were completely satisfied with all that was done. That’s exactly what the estimate quoted: No final payment until we were happy.

Balentine Builders proceeded with the work, stripping our condo back to the studs and remodeling it as requested. Jack kept us informed, monitored his sub-contracted help and was meticulous about the work done. He monitored every step along the way offering suggestions as the changes took place. Jack took care of any glitches he ran into, and we had no stress attributed to his work. We made our final payment only when we were truly happy with the results.

The next time you’re considering a contractor, just call Jack Balentine. He is well worth time and effort. There is enough stress during a remodel without worrying about your contractor.

Subject: Your company versus the competition

As I promised you, I will tell you the amount of the quote I received from ************. I will not send you the actual breakout of the quote (and I will not give your quote to anyone, either). However, I can give you the total price and what it did and did not include:

Total price is $12,740 (plus $500 if backsplash tile is for a diagonal lay).

His price included everything that I contracted with you except:

Did not include: cost of sink, faucet, stove, Jenn-aire vent (or installation) and additional knobs (he wanted us to purchase everything and have them ready at the house). Remember that when he came out, we were still considering venting everything out of the roof, etc. He was going to give me a separate price for a vent and to vent it out of the house (he did not have that price yet and I have told him to stop since we have just contracted with you).

I will also tell you the difference in his company and yours:

When Don and I walked in the door at his place, no one helped us immediately (you did). When he came out to our house (the day after you came out to look and measure) he took a lot of pictures, measured, etc (I told him everything that you had put into the island – that he had competition but not who, etc), but he never followed up with drawings, etc for other ideas for the island, and basically he never called back – Your cabinet designer designed the island for us immediately and revised it to make it work after he knew the correct measurements and what I really wanted in it, etc.

His company did not want to research/order the sinks, faucets, tiles, etc, - Melissa, in your design center, took that on immediately and ran with it.

I also knew immediately (first impressions) that when Don and I had walked in off the street and sat down with you and your team, we would have contracted with you– just because of your work ethics and processes.

I also looked at your website and really liked the way you set it up to walk new clients through the process – start to finish.

Thanks for everything,
Anne – Cape Coral, FL

In June 2008, I contracted with Balentine Builders LLC to remodel my kitchen and bathrooms. The demolition started in June and was completed in July.

They gutted the kitchen and moved electrical & plumbing. They replaced cabinetry, faucets and installed the countertops with “To Die For” granite. They added an island in the middle of my kitchen. They added a pantry on the wall and put in a drop ceiling with recessed can lighting, painted and added new high end appliances.

I am “ESTATIC” in my new kitchen, because “I Love to Cook !” My kitchen is “My Living Room.”

I highly recommend Balentine Builders!!
