ABOUT THE HAMMER TEAM

Thadeus Starsiak

Founder/CEO

My name is Thadeus Starsiak. I’m a native Hoosier, and I grew up on the Westside of Indianapolis. I attended Cardinal Ritter High School and IU. For the past three years, I have owned and operated Hammer Consulting and Construction. Prior to my own business, I worked for Two Chicks and a Hammer as their in-house GC and starred on HGTV’s Good Bones for 8 seasons. I am an expert in older home remodeling, but we do it all. It has been one of my greatest joys owning my own construction company. I receive a great sense of fulfillment in bringing homeowners’ visions to life with our incredible in-house team and subcontractors. Hopefully, we don’t just get to be your contractor, but maybe your friends as well. Much Love.
