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 was professional from the start of the project! He was patient and informative as I asked questions. He even took extra steps to be sure we could use the deck space, by covering it with plywood, until a “hidden issue” that arose could be handled. His prices were very fair and work completed as promised. We would definitely recommend Bill Kettell to our friends, neighbors and YOU!

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.
