In 2014, we underwent a total renovation of our new (old) home. This included new windows and floors throughout; new kitchen and bathrooms; updated electrical and plumbing; and much more. Van Smith did an outstanding job in managing the project. Van's attention to detail and demand for high quality work is outstanding; catching issues we didn't that were immediately corrected. Van treated this project as if he were renovating his own home. This was a tremendous and difficult project due to issues that continually arose; something that always happens when renovating old homes. The renovation cost was in the 6-figure range but we expected it. Van is a great listener; don't think the word "no" is in his vocabulary. If it couldn't be done, Van always provided an alternative that met our needs. Needless to say, thanks to Van's extensive experience and vast knowledge of construction, professionalism, and attention to detail, we truly have a million dollar looking home. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. We may have paid for a Cadillac but we got a Rolls Royce!! Thanks Van for a job extremely well done!

Van Smith with PointBuild Contractors is the most experienced builder I have ever met. On top of that, he is an amazing problem solver. He has built a restaurant for me and done numerous improvements to my home. He is a great listener who really cares about people and he refuses to cut corners. If you want things done right, I highly recommend PointBuild. I personally would not call anyone else.

We did a major remodel on our 60 year old Cardiff home. The transformation was pretty amazing. Mr Smith did a whole house renovation and beautiful Master Suite addition. He is quite knowledgeable in many areas and the workmanship was top notch. We really liked the attention to detail in all areas. Very pleased with the results and would surely use him again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Detail in pricing is what the customer needs to make well informed decisions that will be in their best interest. We stand well above the norm in our approach to pricing out our work. No hidden agenda, no misleading information, just well details cost analysis that exposes the true cost to construct. If you need preliminary costing and you do not have complete plans or concepts? We are expert at letting our customers know what projects might cost....even when information is still in the concept phase. Just ask and we will provide sample breakdowns to you so you can se the level of detail we can provide.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every project is very different and each customer is unique. Hearing the needs of our customers and understanding their individual needs is the best way to help guide the process along. We have a wealth of knowledge in building and use that knowledge to help our customers make critical and beneficial decisions in the building process for projects both large and small. Schematic designs, architectural reviews, value engineering, review of methods and means, and other important services we offer assure our customers that they are getting the best construction available at a value that is fair and reasonable.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As President of Expericon, Van Smith has been a building professional for over 40 years and has constructed both residential and commercial projects in San Diego County with a volume in excess of $200,000,000. From basic construction of room adds, home renovations, decks and fencing to very large and complex homes of distinction and commercial projects, nothing is out of range and Van and his associates have the background to undertake any project that is offered up. Building is a family tradition with two generations preceding Van in the business of building and development.
