Refund & Exchange Policy: 
Hammell Homes has a great interest in taking care of our customers not only during the project, but for the future. Our first concern is to "do it right the first time" and build with quality products so our customers do not have to make any callback. Despite all efforts and supervision, workmanship mistakes are made and we have a (1) one year warranty on all our workmanship to repair or reconcile all problems to an industry standard. In addition to Hammell Homes one year warranty, various subcontractors may have additional warranties which will be honored by that particular subcontractor. Any material that is covered by its own warranty will be addressed by the manufacturer.

A man in his 40s from Evanston, IL wrote a 5 star Yelp review.
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.

A woman in her 30s from Chicago, IL wrote a 4 star Yelp review "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.
