Our Story

Russell Room Remodelers began in 1989 as Bill Brinkman Home Improvements with Jeff Russell as Bill's first employee in 1990.

 

During Jeff and BIll's first year working together, a partnership was forged and Brinkman Russell was formed.

 

Brinkman Russell built a strong remodeling reputation over the next 16 years with groundwork laid throughout the community. When they amicably parted ways in 2006, Russell Room Remodelers was born and Jeff's wife, Sharon, joined him in taking over the business.

 

With Jeff casting vision and Sharon bringing that vision to life, Russell Room Remodelers has refined their focus to work primarily on interior remodeling.

 

Today, Jeff and Sharon's 30+ years of remodeling experience enables them to lead a team that has the skill and expertise to guide you through any kitchen, bathroom, basement, or other remodeling project.
