Tim and his guys remodeled the bathroom in a 150 year old farmhouse. This meant lead abatement measures, moving a load-bearing wall and rearranging the ceiling vent, walls and the plumbing to fit the new but still small room. He used excellent plumbers and an electrician but did the rest of the work himself including tile, drywall, and the finishwork including a wood cabinet and built-in mirrored medicine chest. Answered my questions, helped with the decisions that needed to be made. Polite, prompt, called and emailed as needed. Always cleaned up after themselves. The work was expensive but worth it because it is a beautifully done professional job showing craftsmanship and some unique features. I love this new bathroom.Mar 15, 2016
First time getting a kitchen remodel and it turned out amazing, no longer ashamed of my kitchen. I worked with Tim Bader who was honest, helpful, and realistic with the budget i put forward. I would absolutely recommend Tim and his crew for their professional work quality and attitudes.Feb 27, 2018Verified
Tim and his team were very professional, completed the job in full and worked with the ideas we had in mind for our kitchen. Tim was easily contacted and returned phone calls promptly. He worked with us on a budget and gave us options on where we wanted to purchase supplies. I would recommend A Guy & A Hammer, LLC for any of your house repairs or remodels! - The Knudson's in Green Bay, WIMar 6, 2016
I hired A Guy & A Hammer to renovate the kitchen in a house built in 1938. Needless to say, the walls and floors were not necessarily level and straight. Tim did a fantastic job of installing the cabinets and tile backsplash and disguising the room's flaws. He was very willing to incorporate my suggestions into the design. The area next to the refrigerator was unused because of the existence of a heat vent. Tim was able to install an upper and lower cabinet by redirecting the heat underneath the lower cabinet. In addition to the new kitchen cabinets, Tim and his team removed an old chimney from a closet near the kitchen and converted it to a laundry area with a stackable washer and dryer. They also installed a new bathroom floor with radiant heat and ceramic tile. Finally, Tim discovered the floor on the front porch of the house was unsafe. He re-built it and created a screen porch which is the envy of the neighborhood. I have a few more projects for the house, and you can be sure I will be calling "THE Guy with THE Hammer!Mar 25, 2016
Worst possible person to work with came 5000 over budget and refused to tell me how that money was allocated due to bulk pricing. I honestly told him multiple times I needed to understand and he told me how much time I was wasting. Took 3 months to get a quote after I did everything he asked immediately. So if you have no worries about money and want to hear how busy he is go with him otherwise stay as far away as you can. He has no customer experience capabilities and does not listen to his customer what so ever. I found someone to do the same work with the same quality under budget.May 26, 2017VerifiedA Guy & A Hammer, LLC's reply
Amanda contracted with us to define and price out her bathroom remodeling project. This included only writing specs and working up the price of the project. No onsite work was requested, offered or included. Amanda set a target budget that was $3500 below the national average for a bathroom remodel. She then selected materials and a design that far exceeded “average”. When we came back with a price higher than her target, she expressed frustration so we offered to make changes to bring her project more in line with her budget at no additional cost. We did that (twice). She was still not happy with the result. It became clear that we were not a good fit for Amanda, so after doing all the work agreed (and more), we promptly sent her a 100% refund (the same day).
