Lenny and Melissa Kammes

   The man responsible for the work ethics that were passed on to the rest of the family....

With a whopping 47 years of experience in the construction field from detailed carpentry to building custom homes, Len Sr. knows how to contribute to any project that comes along.  His "work hard and treat people right, then things will work out" mentality has been a positive influence on everyone who's lives he has touched. Len Sr. is a workhorse with a fun-loving personality that is always a benefit to the daily environment.

  Len Sr. is responsible for the carpentry and foundational prep work that makes Kammes Colorwork's service so valuable. He does not rest until the job is complete.

    Keri's creative spirit is definitely the driving force for her contributions at Kammes Colorworks. Her hairstyles may change but her commitment to the company has always been rock solid.  

    After years of learning about paint while working on the retail side of the industry and taking on her own personal projects, she made the move to be part of the painting side of things. After joining Kammes Colorworks her skills sharpened quickly and she was able to produce incredible results as a professional in a very short period of time.

    Keri has become the on-site specialist within the company possessing the tedious abilities to deliver results on the cabinet boxes in the client's home.


    Lenny began his first job painting at age 15 working after school and during the summer months. This continued through high school and up to creating Kammes Colorworks, Inc. His passion for constant improvement and stepping back to see a beautiful final product drove his desire to continue in the field and refine his skills in hopes of leading a company in the future.    

    When Lenny and Melissa met in 2003 they wasted no time getting started with their life together. While helping out Lenny on his painting projects it became clear that Melissa also possessed a natural born skill for painting and a high expectation for the quality of work that she performed. This realization spurred the motivation that as a team the two could make possible the dream of creating a painting company that offered services to the exact standards that Lenny had dreamed of offering. Kammes Colorworks was officially born in 2006 after a lot of thought and preparation (and the fun logo design).  The foundation of Kammes Colorworks has always been to achieve the highest quality of craftsmanship in the field and treat their clients with kindness and respect.  Lenny and Melissa work together to help each other and the team to be their best.  

    With Kammes Colorworks, Inc. what you see is what you get. The team consists of Lenny and Melissa as well as Lenny's Father- Len Sr. and his Sister- Keri.  They have all worked together to find their places within the company and each member has earned the right to be part of the team.

   Lenny works with the refinishing team to oversee the process as it progresses. He also sprays the finish on your doors and does the on-site portion of the sanding.
