They accepted a small project from me, installing a shelf on wall, and a couple of grab bars in bathroom. The installations were good.

They came in a very timely manner as my dog could escape after the wind blew it down - so the fact that it may have been a bit more than I could afford - it was worth it

Review by a homeowner in Evanston, IL
Paid $750 deposit on signed proposal to have door hardware replaced. Work was to be performed 12/17 8:30 a.m. On 12/16 after 5:00 p.m. Rick Hammell called and gave conflicting stories about increased costs and unavailable products. Each time I asked questions or offered solutions to resolve issues, his story changed. Numerous times he said he wanted to come over that evening to show me invoices, to show me products, etc. As I thought this was not only unnecessary but inappropriate as well, I cancelled the service. I then called him back and asked him to mail a refund check for the $750. Again, he asked to bring the check to me that evening. I told him emphatically that I expected the check to be mailed. I filed a complaint with the BBB and have still not received my refund. Please remove this company from you list.
Response by Hammell Homes: I came out to this customer and gave her a proposal at her house. She was persistent on receiving a quick quote. Within 10 minutes I estimated replacing 6 locks on 4 doors. She mentioned that she has moved into her home and have not change the locks and considered this as a rush. I check my schedule and schedule her to come back out within 48 hours. The next day I did my research to purchase the locks she requested. One of the locks was a old mortise lock that was discontinued. I called her after she got off work around 5 p.m. prior to coming out to her house and explain to her that there is a difference in cost because of the discontinued and had the paper work to show her the I was being transparent. She couldn't understand what I was saying and kept asking questions and with further reiteration it seems like I was confusing her and she immediately got defensive and said I don't understand I want to cancel the job. At that point, I mention to her I have every thing else except the mortise lock for to start tomorrow morning. Speaking very loud, she said that she still wanted to cancel and demanding her money back and threatened to sue and make a complaint to the BBB. I mention to her I will be gladly to drop it off to her if that's what she wants, she demanded it to be mailed to her. The very next day I check with my bank to make sure her check has cleared seeing I just deposited that previous day. I had to wait a few days more for it to clear and I gave her a full $750 refund check. I hand deliver it to her mailbox with photos as proof. I chose to hand deliver it because of the Christmas mail rush I did not want to be a delayed. I believe this was a very over exaggerated complaint with no bias. It was a simple of me telling her that the product that she wanted was not available anymore because it was discontinued. I offer her another option, witch did cost a little bit more. When she said that she wanted to cancel I make every attempt and successfully give her her refund back.

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.
