The QualitySmith mission is simple; to bring hardworking people together with honest, quality contractors. But is QualitySmith really a reputable marketplace or just a middleman? ReviewsWeek set about finding out…
We spoke to the owner Rob Schmidt to make our own judgement, and after doing so he then showed us proof of the hundreds of thousands of fully vetted contractors on the QualitySmith books. Rob is no middleman; in fact his mission was borne out of a very bad experience. His sister put down a large payment on a new roof, only for the contractor to disappear and run off with the money. Determined not to let this happen to other innocent members of the public, Rob set up QualitySmith, a website that thoroughly vets contractors and then connects them to QualitySmith consumers requiring home improvements.
Rob tells us that QualitySmith isn’t just about finding the lowest price, and says that contrary to popular belief, when it comes to home improvement, people would rather go for quality and reliability over a cheap Charlie that does a rushed job that will potentially cause problems to a property in the future.
Whether Air Con, heating, roofing, siding, windows or garden maintenance, you will find a QualitySmith pro that won’t let you down. The site also works in favour of contractors. As a contractor you can sign up to be background and quality checked and then present your services to the consumers searching on the QualitySmith site; a great way to stand out from the many sub-standard contractors on the market.
QualitySmith Key Benefits

QualitySmith puts an end to every home owners nightmare, and that is getting ripped off by an unscrupulous home improvements company. Bringing together honest contractors and honest hard-working consumers under one roof is a fantastic idea that protects against poor quality workmanship and theft. A much needed service in a marketplace that has become somewhat of a lucky dip. Highly recommended.
