Our Design/Build Story

Before founding his namesake firm, Jesse Smith had experienced 14 years of custom home remodeling. As both a custom cabinet maker and finish carpenter, Jesse worked side-by-side with local architects and designers on high-end remodeling projects for discerning clientele. Paired with a proficiency in tile setting, plumbing and minor electrical work, Jesse saw an opportunity to establish a firm that not only had the best skills to remodel homes but also embodied integrity in all its remodeling processes. 

Having observed what made jobs successful or less than ideal, Jesse took this knowledge and established his own custom home remodeling firm in 2004. With j. allen smith design/build, clients can expect:

  • industry-leading 5-year warranty
  • clear documentation
  • dynamic solutions to remodeling challenges
  • quality craftsmanship
  • timely work schedules
  • efficient project budgets
  • integrity

To this day, j. allen smith design/build is known as a remodeling firm that takes extra steps to complete quality projects on time, using only the best trade partners who are neat, polite, clean and respectful.
