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.

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.
