Smith Bailey & Associates, Fire & Water Damage Restoration, Snellville, GA

Our History

In 1952, Ralph Smith entered the restoration industry. Sixty-plus years later, we continue to have a well-established reputation in insurance construction, damage restoration, remodeling and general contracting.

1992 – Rob Bailey, then owner of Cornerstone Construction, was primarily a commercial construction and large residential remodeled when he purchased the Ralph Smith Company to create Smith Bailey and Associates. The merger increased the company’s reach and scope, allowing Smith Bailey to draw on the combined resources of its facilities and skilled personnel.

Rob McClure was General Manager for Smith Bailey and Associates when he was approached by a retiring Mr. Bailey in 2008. After the transfer of leadership and a minor name change to Smith Bailey Restoration and Smith Bailey Construction today Smith Bailey excels at every level of the construction process. No matter where you find yourself in the spectrum, the Smith Bailey family of companies is there to help complete your project on time and within budget.
