5.0 Deborah L. Evanston, IL

Hammell Homes responded to my call quickly and answered all my questions beforehand. They were on time, professional, and did a great job. After the job was completed, they made sure the area was cleaned

3.0 Carol B. Evanston, IL

Good work. Recommend that owner assess his teamâ s work directly at the job site for consistency and completeness.

5.0 L kruse K. Evanston, IL

They showed up on time. And got the projects completed rather quickly

0.50 Sarah L. Evanston, IL

They took my money and claimed the job was done. We had to redo all the work. They took my money and said they were getting a permit and they never did. Rick Hammel came up with excuse after excuse for the job. My cabinets are ruined for ever and were hung crooked and damaged, They did nothing right at this job. The plumbing we were able to pull out of the wall it was not attached, I can go on and on.

5.0 Cynthia T. Evanston, IL

They took the time to explain everything in advance of beginning the work. They adhered to my desired timeline and were gracious in every way, along with providing top quality materials and work. I am very pleased and highly recommend them!

5.0 Michael L. Evanston, IL

Rick Hammell and two others showed up and worked for 5 hours for what I think is a pretty minimal fee! They procured the doors and did a fine job of installing and cleaning up.

5.0 Arthur H. Skokie, IL

Fortunate to come across Hammell Homes through home advisory. Needed install of recessed lighting for our living room. Rick & team took the job; their work & professionalism was beyond words. They helped walk us through the entire process & made it super easy/affordable to meet our expectations. I would highly recommend Hammell Homes for your future home projects. Hope to work with them again soon.

Response from Company:

Arthur, Thank you so much for this 5-star review. We really appreciate you being a customer. Please let us know what we can do for you in the future. - Rick H.

5.0 Timothy M. Evanston, IL

Stellar customer service. There is no other contractor (that I am aware of) that is accessible and returns calls until 7, Monday to Friday. Always provides a quick response time for questions by text/email. Hard-working crew. They tailored to my tiniest of detail requests. The project required several stipulations for a room that required me to work from home. Every requirement was a check! -Timothy Mahoney.

Response from Company:

Hey Tim, thank you so much for this 5-star review. We really appreciate you being a customer and helping to share the word about us. We are here for you anytime! - Rick H.

4.5 Samuel B. Evanston, IL

5.0 Cindy H. Evanston, IL

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

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.
