Clayton Construction is a dynamic organization fueled by the creative energy and enthusiasm of our clients and their visions.  

We consider our clients artists and each has a desire inside themselves for expression. Through our experience, skills and partnerships we make your dreams a reality.


  • The Beginning - Clayton Construction was founded by owner Clay Smith in the delicate and arduous restorations of 100 year old historical homes in the Richmond, Virginia area.
  • 20 Years Experience - As a general contractor there since 1999 and with over 20 years of accumulated, multiple construction trade knowledge, Clay honed the skills and practiced the craftsmanship that would set him apart from his peers and keep him in high demand by his clients.
  • Building Challenges - Century old homes are notoriously fraught with building challenges only rarely seen elsewhere. Having cut his teeth with and found success in the remodel, renovation and restoration of these structures, Clay longed to return to the sun of San Diego and ply his skill there. The coastal custom homes of La Jolla, Bird Rock and Rancho Santa Fe were a natural calling.
  • Pride of Workmanship - It was here that the same echelon of artist/ craftsman he was used to working with could be found. Here pride of workmanship outweighed profit and here he established relationships with the high quality subcontractors he still uses today.
  • Serving San Diego Since 2007 - Clayton Construction reopened its doors on the West coast and has been serving the San Diego community since 2007.

...A very thorough clean up was then performed and the job was finished to my great satisfaction...Mr. Smith is a very capable, responsible, reasonable and professional contractor whom I would be happy to recommend. I am sure you would be well pleased with his work ethic and abilities to see the job done right.
