BBB Rating:


Quality Smith is in the business of connecting homeowners with professional contractors for home repair and improvement projects. Established in 2001, Quality Smith is a Washington based company and currently holds a Better Business Bureau rating of A.

Quality Smith doesn't state the number of contractors they have working for them but say they are continually expanded their network of hundreds of reliable service professionals across the U.S.. Quality Smith requires that all contractors are licensed and insured before adding them to their database.

To find a contractor through Quality Smith you choose from a list of ten areas including HVAC, roofing, windows, siding, painting, kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, flooring, gutters and auto glass replacement. Next you input your zip code. Quality Smith asks that you answer additional repair related questions. We noticed with a few of the zip codes we input we were directed to a new website. We assume where Quality Smith doesn't currently have any contractor relationships.

Quality Smith contractors do not charge for an estimate or quote. However, if Quality Smith directs you to another referral website be aware that the policies may vary.

Quality Smith has a less diverse nationwide database of contractors as well as, it appears, a more limited scope of the repairs and improvements they can provide professionals for.

We liked the clean and easy to use website Quality Smith provides but were less enthusiastic about the database of contractors and the referral to different companies where quality and policies may differ from those at Quality Smith.

Today, many people use home repair and improvement referral companies to minimize the stress of finding a reliable contractor. These referral services can be a great way for you to feel confident in your search for a professional contractor.

However, not all contractor referral companies are the same. Before you jump online to find your next contractor, consider the following:

  • Database. How large is the database of contractors? Does the service offer contractors across the nation or is it limited to only specific areas?
  • Cost. Who pays for the referral service - the homeowner or the contractor? Are contractor quotes and bids free of charge?
  • History. Does the company have a long, reliable history of supplying quality contractors? What's the current Better Business Bureau rating of that company? has reviewed and ranked the best contractor services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right contractor for your home project!
