Our Team at Kitchen and Bath on the Isle

Allen Duyn

(941) 488-2284

Allen Duyn is originally from New Jersey, where his grandparents settled after coming over from Holland. His family has a history of construction related business endeavors. While Al was attending the University of Wyoming, his parents moved to Florida, so he joined them after college. He began working in construction on Boca Grande as a carpenter and worked as a subcontractor for a time. He started his own business, Duyn Construction in 1978.

As a general contractor, Al originally did additions and remodeling, with many of the projects being kitchen and baths. He also built commercial buildings and custom homes. Al is a perfectionist, so he was the on-the- job worker for most of the projects. However, in the 1990s, large developments were popping up everywhere, and it was hard to compete with prices while providing the same quality of work as he demanded. Being a developer was never what Al had set out to be, so he eventually took the creativity that he was afforded as a custom builder, and channeled it into creating a division of Duyn Construction that specialized in designing custom kitchens and baths.

And so, Kitchen and Bath on the Isle was born in 2005 just before the economic downturn. It turned out that remodeling, particularly in kitchens and baths, was all that people did in the recession years. As a business, we were in the best possible position to ride out the recession and thrive in the recovery period. This specialty remodeling company provides a “One Stop Shop” kitchen and bath remodeling center that specifically meets the need of our clientele, most of whom are retired professionals or those in a similar market. Kitchen and Bath remodeling now represents about 98% of our business and we love it. The hands-on approach that Al began in our early years, and his owner invested mindset is what has led to our extremely high rate of customer satisfaction even today. We have won the “Best of Venice” award for our type of business the last four years and also the Best of Houzz for customer service for 2015.
