Comments:
They always do fast and reliable work, and fix any problems that arise in old homes like mine. I've used them on projects from simple paint, plaster, and clean-up to roofing, bathroom fixtures, and AC. Hammell Homes has also helped me out with more than one emergency.

I am a real estate investor and whenever I need renovation work I call Rick Hammell. I trust him to handle all aspects of the project and to come in at budget and timely, and he always employs a team of professionals.

Comments:
Rick from Hammell Homes was great, they gave us an estimate and everything via e-mail. (A rarity) They were very prompt about scheduling the work and replacing our stairs, even putting in some supports that the original construction was missing. We will definitely contact them for future projects.

Comments:
I highly recommend using Hammell Homes for contractor work. Hammell Homes worked on a couple of projects in my building. Both projects were done with quality and at a fair price. I will definitely use Hammell Homes again for any housing repairs/projects in the future.

Responded quickly than other service providers. Was flexible in time because there is a renter in my property. The rate wasn't expensive and the work was done well. Would use him again.

We are still in the early stages of our project, but Rick has been very helpful in determining what will work for us. He has responded quickly and provided good ideas for three projects in our home including a new bathtub, outdoor lighting, and decorative finishing.

Rick is a pleasure to work with. He called promptly after my initial contact and came right over to make an estimate. Work was completed as we agreed. He and Brian worked efficiently and did an excellent job of keeping the work area clean. Very happy with the work that was done.

Review by Susan F
Project: Ceiling Fan Repair
Comments:
The fans could not be repaired. Rick found replacements on Tuesday and installed them on Thursday. He and Paul were prompt, helpful, and courteous, and cleaned up after the project. I could not have been more pleased. He also replaced a faulty light fixture under the counter in the kitchen. The total cost included all parts, fans, and labor. He brought everything he needed-I did not have to shop. I felt it was more than fair. I went on line and could not find these samll fans at all!

Project: Kitchen renovation
Comments:
Your tile work turned out beautifully. Better than we imagined! We sincerely thank you for your hard work and we are so happy we came across your ad on the City website. With so many renovators out there, it is hard to know who to choose. We are very lucky we chose you and we will be using you again for our master bathroom as we discussed. Thank you again Rick, you did a wonderful job.

I am a 203(K) consultant / inspector working for a client in Evanston, IL. Hammell Homes was the contractor on the property. The project was a gut/rehab. It took about five months to complete. Rick was professional in every meeting with me. His work was outstanding and the home is beautiful. I did not have any issues with his workmanship. My client was happy to communicate with Rick. Although changes were made, and unexpected things happened, Rick handled everything professionally and politely. Other contractors should learn from this man about his customer service. Nice job Rick!

Response to estimate was incredibly fast, the price was very fair and the workmanship was excellent. Replaced several interior doors and a window. Hired them again for a second project ... more windows! Hammell Homes is my go-to now. THANKS RICK!
