Dale and his team have spent time with us, walking the lot, coming up with cost saving and design ideas, even before we hired Kidder Construction. Both he and Will are very responsive and have an outstanding reputation in the Headwaters community. Our project has just started, but already, Dale and his team have found cost savings that will help bring the construction to completion within budget.James and Molly Camp

Bear Creek at Linville
Dale Kidder has been building for us at our development, Bear Creek at Linville since we first started construction in late 2003.
His honesty and integrity is at the level that you would never feel the need to question him about it. His quality of workmanship in his buildings never needs to be addressed and he sees to it that his subs work at his same standards or he will not keep them on the job. He does not tolerate sub-standard work. He takes pride in his buildings and has always returned to address punch list items with our residents, when many contractors would leave you stranded once the job is finished. He has never failed to work with us on call backs for very minor situations, and with some that may not have been his responsibility.
We’ve been in the development business for thirty plus years and we’ve seen many contractors come and go by the way and we might say, without missing too many of them. We don’t feel that way at all about Dale Kidder. We feel very fortunate to have him as our contractor and never felt the need to look elsewhere for a builder. Dale is a professional and a credit to the field of General Contractors.Sincerely,
David and Doris Swor / Developers
“Surpassed our expectations…”
The quality of our home in Headwaters built by Dale has surpassed our expectations. Diane and I are thrilled with the finished product.”Brad and Diane Weinbrum
“Creativity and honesty…”
It has been three years since my wife and I purchased our first home built by Dale Kidder, and we are as happy with it and Kidder Construction as the day we closed. Dale’s creativity and honesty and the dedication of all of his employees have made our experience a very good one. Even three years after the sale, Kidder Construction, has made good on every question we have raised. So good, that we built a spec home last year with Dale that sold even before it was completed.
Kidder Construction has proven to be not only able to think of how to build value into a home but also to deal with current market realities. The best measure of the confidence we have in Dale is that we have just broken ground on our next spec home and are excited about the project and are having fun doing it.

“Working with Dale and Kidder Construction was an absolute pleasure. Although we did buy a home from Kidder Construction that was 70% complete, the process of picking finishes and adding personal touches to our home was seamless. One thing that was obvious when we purchased our home was Dale and his crew’s passion for what they do. This was shown in the extra ideas he had for our house and the attention to the smallest details in the finishing of our home. Where most of our friends talk about what a nightmare it is to build a home because of the inability to reach their builder and inability to get across how they want things done, Dale was both easily accessible and seemed to know things we wanted even before we discussed them with him. Kidder construction truly believes in being a “builder for the life of the home” and he has continued to be accessible after the sale of our home with small problems after we’ve moved in. We would wholeheartedly recommend Dale and the entire Kidder Construction crew as one of the few exemplary custom builders in the region.”

The Headwaters at Banner Elk
From early 2006, Dale Kidder of Kidder Construction has been actively involved in a number of construction projects within my development, The Headwaters at Banner Elk. He and his team were responsible for building our Gate House, Welcome Center, sixteen condominiums and the crown jewel, our mountaintop Clubhouse. From the beginning, Dale and Will Howard were on site every day overseeing the projects and providing helpful insights into how to improve upon the architectural plans. They worked tirelessly and were available at a moment’s notice when needed. The result is a grouping of amenities and condominiums that are the envy of the market. As the developer, I am very pleased with the way in which Dale took my vision for the Clubhouse and turned it into a reality.
Furthermore, Dale has assisted in the sale of numerous individual properties as he worked closely with prospective buyers and our sales team, walking various home sites and providing preliminary construction estimates to the prospects. As a result of his involvement, Headwaters has closed more transactions than it might have otherwise. In addition he has built several custom homes for our Headwaters property owners and in each case has come away with new friendships with those owners. That in itself is a testimony.
The quality of construction and creativity is of the highest caliber and I expect Kidder Construction to continue to be an integral part of the future success of The Headwaters.John E. Haynes

We have had a wonderful experience working with Kidder Construction Company building our “dream home” in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. We had the good fortune of meeting Will Howard several years ago and he introduced us to Dale Kidder. What a team they make! We have had experience building several houses in the past and interviewed several contractors for this home so we were in a good position to choose our builder and evaluate their work and final results. Our architect did not deliver a final or totally adequate set of plans. Dale and Will have, with great creativity, joy, communication and generous patience, worked with us to fill the gaps, improve and complete those plans. They have worked through idea after idea so that the process has been one of tremendous satisfaction for all of us. Dale and Will are meticulous, dependable, skilled, honest and enthusiastic professionals. They have a wonderful office and on the job staff, suppliers and subcontractors that through their actions and attitudes show they know they are part of a very special organization. They all have a strong client focus and do an outstanding job. They have made the process of building our home almost stress free and easier and more pleasant than we could have imagined. They have shown that they are not going to be satisfied until we are satisfied. Dale and Will have become our good friends and will continue to be so. We strongly recommend Kidder Construction Company and would very gladly speak to and show our home to anyone that would wisely consider having Dale and Will build their home.Sue and Ray O’Keefe
