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 the business.


With Jeff designing, selling, and leading production, and Sharon managing the office, Russell Room Remodelers has grown and refined their focus to two areas: Interiors - kitchens, bathrooms, and basements; and Exteriors -  additions, screen porches and whole house projects.


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.
