HESPERIA, Mich. -- Four contractors from different West Michigan businesses have reached out to a woman who was taken for $1,200 after she hired a company to make her dream kitchen.

On Wednesday, the FOX 17 Problem Solvers talked with Julie Burrell, who claims she paid Nick Mentalewicz of Blueprint Granite the money as a deposit for the project.  She was going to pay another $1,200 when the work was completed.

Four weeks after paying the deposit, Burrell said, the work on her kitchen was never even started.

Signature Construction Services, West Michigan Granite and Tile, Lakeside Surfaces, and Advance Interiors have all come forward offering to do the work for Burrell and her family.  They say that the contracting community is small, and they've all heard of Mentalewicz doing work they don't approve of.

"It gives us all a bad name," said Rob Reigler with Lakeside Surfaces.

Now Burrell can choose which of the contractors she wants to work with.  They have each offered to finish the work and get her the granite for $1,200, the remainder of what Blueprint Granite had budgeted for them.
