What It Is

Jerry Smith Services is an individual proprietorship. No crews. I have one office. One address. It is the same as our home. No tricks, no 800 numbers. I answer the phone when you call and usually come right out that day. The license I have is the same one I started with 3 decades ago. No one else can make that claim – honestly. Other contractors simply concede their bond when there is conflict – and form another business entity – get a new license number – and then tell you that they have 30 years of experience. I don’t agree with that business model. I conduct all inspections and estimates. And you will get documentation in hand that day! No lag time.
I am proud of the fact that I have succeeded where most builders fail; continuing to provide reliable service year after year with the same license. I am not looking to expand and “grow”. One project at a time is enough for me. And then I go on to the next one when it is complete. I do not bid competitively. I bid a project based on the experience I have, which allows me to know what it will actually take to do the job quickly, correctly and cleanly.

Before you hire anyone, ask them…

Had you ever filed bankruptcy?
Have you been forced to change business entities?
Why do you have so many license numbers?

Would you want people like that to handle YOUR money?

What We Offer


I Bid Higher Than Anyone Else

And you will GET more from my efforts than you will from anyone else. You will get service. I guarantee that when we are done –  the project will be complete. No call backs. No anxiety.

I Handle Everything

I handle each aspect of the demo and the rebuild. plumbing, electrical, sewer, excavation, framing, concrete work (obviously) as well as all the necessary interior finishes.

Extensive Projects

Additions, second-story pop-ups, basement creations (lift, excavate and build a cellar under a home that had a crawlspace foundation before)

Understand this: I will tell you that I am not interested in your project – if it is apparent that “we” are not a good fit. I don’t want to work in an environ that is hostile. So, when we get on the phone – I will be interviewing you. Most people are unable to keep me on the phone for more than a couple of minutes. I am extremely selective.

I am the best in the field in this area. I have more experience. And I do not need to work.
I would like you to be prepared – if you decide to call and chat.

What People Have Learned

Over the years,I have lifted, repaired, retro-fitted and tricked out more victorians than I ever knew existed. That is what most of what I have done. Older homes. Houses built before 1900 – that don’t have wall studs???? No one is left from the old days that can do the 3 stage lift without making it worse – except moi.
People call after they tried to hire someone else to repair their home – only to find out after spending $100K that it will take twice that to fix all the mistakes. Mistakes that may take years to reveal themselves.
