Many of our team members have been with McAdams Remodeling & Design for decades – so rare in the industry! Our team is dedicated, caring and really wants to delight our clients with the results of their home remodel. We are lucky to call many of our past clients our friends today. Our team members like clean and orderly job sites and are easily identified by their company logo’d shirts.
President & Co-Owner
President and Managing Partner of the Company, Dale joined the team in 1993 and grew along with the company, holding many positions in the field and in the office. With an education in business and company experience in estimating and purchasing, Dale previously oversaw a dedicated staff of Project Managers and trade partners for many years.
When Dale’s not in the office or checking on projects in the field, he enjoys vacationing in the San Juan Islands, serves with the Kirkland Kiwanis, and plays drums in a local band.
“We pride ourselves on providing an excellent remodeling experience and are very proud of our success and longevity in the industry.”
Founder & Co-Owner
Founder and Partner Len has a more than forty years of construction experience and a degree from the University of Washington in Construction Management. Previously a mainstay on the Saturday morning KVI radio show for 10 years, he began remodeling homes in 1974, and developed both business and personal relationships with many Seattle and Eastside homeowners who return for each new project.
When Len isn’t in the office, he makes time for volunteering, gardening, traveling with his wife, dinner parties with friends, and fun with his grandchildren.
“I enjoy overcoming challenges, building relationships, and creating homes that you can live in and enjoy. It is a privilege to lead the fine people in our company and to see the results in your lives every day.”
