Company History & Founder Backgrounds

Co-Founders Joe Silva and Larry Smith brought their experience together in 2004 to establish Silva Smith Quality Carpentry.

Joe Silva has been doing carpentry since 1992. He has perfected many techniques; especially in trim work. He can look at a set of plans and know exactly what will work and what won’t work before the project even starts. Joe has always loved working with homeowners to create the living spaces they are excited about.

Larry Smith is retired from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and brings several years of construction experience including building his own home in Strafford, NH.

Joe, Larry, and the rest of the Silva Smith team have built homes, duplexes, a 4 unit condo, additions, garages, remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, built farmer’s porches and plenty of decks. They have done floors, windows, doors, crown molding, stairs and railings, roofs and siding.
