    Showed up ready to do the work, wasted no time and was very knowledgeable. He worked with my schedule and I will hire him again. Great customer service.

    Dale Smith is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Fixed our garage door at a fraction of what a garage repair company would charge. I highly recommend him and his service.

    I had a sliding glass door that I was trying to move and in the process, the frame of the panel started to separate from the glass. I couldn't pop it back in, even with another set of hands. I had two other contractors come out and look and they told me I needed to replace the entire sliding glass door arrangement. One quoted me at $4500! Dale came by and was able to fix it, pop it back into place, and add the pet-friendly panel I was trying to install in the first place. Even the cost of a replacement, if I had needed it, was $2,000 less. It took a load of stress of me since I was worried about the security of the house and it was getting drafty inside. When pandemic restrictions relax more, I will definitely call on Dale to do some other projects around the house. I love that he focuses on whether something can be fixed versus just replacing it.

    Quality work and affordable, challenge was timing. Material and install took longer than original plan. Would definitely hire again, the workmanship was superb.

    Dale Smith is not only a first rate carpenter but a fine artisan and craftsman. I requested that he replace an old bi-fold door in my bedroom with a solid door with decorative wallpaper and trim on the front. The finished product is beautiful! If you want someone with an artistic eye who does precision carpentry work, Dale is your man!

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
