Reviews & Testimonials
"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."

"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!"
