About this pro

Kettell Custom Homes, Inc. is a custom home building and remodeling company doing business in the Chicago suburbs for over 30 years.  As founder and President, I am proud of the reputation for quality work that my company has developed.   My success over the years has been due in large to open communication with the customer, detailed planning, constant monitoring of the work in progress and the use of quality tradespeople and products. 

As a third generation building contractor, I grew up in the trades.  I haven't just watched, but actually physically built many homes from the ground up.  The work is a passion that I am lucky to enjoy every day.

    Bill is very reliable and accommodating! His workmanship is excellent and he takes extra care to clean up after himself which we really appreciated! We are loving our new deck and highly recommend Kettell Custom Homes! Thank you Bill 😃

  • Phyllis Young

    I highly recommend Bill for any remodeling and home construction work you may have. Our new deck surpassed our expectations! Bill is the best: professional, personable and possesses a great attention to detail. At the end of every day our "construction site" was pristine. We've had a number of projects with the house over 30 years and nobody but Bill has ever done that. I invite our friends and neighbors to come see his work. We are so pleased.

  • Tony and Suzanne Soluri

    The whole process from start to finish was totally professional and we are very pleased the end product (a rear deck replacement). Communication with Bill Kettel was clear and concise. Changes and adjustments that were requested were handled smoothly. The whole crew worked quickly and professionally. Very happy with the whole process.

    Bill built this house for me in the early 90's. After a hail storm did significant damage to the house last year Bill was the one guy that I trusted to do the repair work. Just like in the 90's, he did an outstanding job.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The first meeting is to understand what the customer wants & to establish a budget.  When new construction or remodeling are involved, the next step is to make a preliminary design or plan for the customers approval.  Then preliminary costs are assembled for review.  Final plans are drawn and a contract is written.  The construction process is layed out series of customer selections and approval as the project is completed.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Business Management degree from Bradley University.

I have years of experience as both a framing & trim carpenter.

I oversee every aspect of home construction & repair and have a good general knowledge of each trade.
