Review by in Calumet City, IL
Ken and his worker re-skinned a damaged exterior door saving me hundreds of dollars and many hours of frustration in hunting for a door to be in uniformity compliance with my condo bylaws. Ken also has successfully referred other skilled tradesmen for projects I needed to complete. His ideas, expertise and generosity are unmatched.

Mark & Alex did a great job with baseboard in 3 rooms & hallway. Also installed medicine cabinet & light. Moved and replaced all furniture. Answered all my questions. Cleaned up when done. Very hard working. Will hire A J Kennedy Group again, especially Mark & Alex.

Review by in Orland Park, IL
Ken did excellent work. We needed an oak railing removed so a new glass railing could be installed. After the railing was removed the flooring needed to be prepared and to match the existing oak flooring. Work completed was excellent. Would hire again.

Review by in Clarendon Hills, IL
Ken was great. He showed up on time as promised for a quote. He gave me a reasonable price and was not at all intimidated by the work. In fact, he relished the challenge. One other carpenter refused to do the job and another quoted me a "I'll do it if you drastically over pay me" rate. Ken told me when he would do the work and let me know when he was delayed due to weather. He showed up as promised, explained the work, and cleaned up. The work is well done and extremely thorough. I would recommend Ken to any one and will certainly hire him again for carpentry, trim or door projects. Great job and a big thank you!

Review by in Oak Park, IL
Excellent work, done promptly within budget. Did extra work to match spindles. The gentleman is very, very nice. It is difficult to find someone to do the carpentry work that we needed done, but he did it very fast, very well and at a very reasonable price. We are very happy.

Project: Repair Drywall
Ken and his crew were very professional and courteous at all times. Ken communicated and kept us informed at all times and even came up with better ideas that my wife and I had for remodeling our home! The project was finished ahead of schedule and under budget considering the "extras" that Ken did on his own for no extra charge. I would not hesitate to use them again. I highly recommend this company for any type of work that you need done.

Project: Hire a Handyman
#1-Ken Kennedy communicates before, during , and when the job is complete to explain the work comprehensively. He instinctively knows what tools will be required and is fully prepared to complete the task. A tutorial is provided during and after so we can see what to look for and how to take first steps in preventing or handling the issue ourselves first.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
