Vancouver custom homes, renovations & commercial

Vancouver has a style that is eclectic, much like the individuals who live here, and the homes in the downtown area or communities like Point Grey, West Vancouver, East Vancouver, Yaletown, Kitsilano, Coquitlam and Gastown. From downtown iconic towers to historic homes on tree lined streets, Alair Homes provides the highest-quality custom builds and renovations found in or around Vancouver. Alair Homes in Vancouver is owned and operated by David Babakaiff. He proudly offers clients an innovative approach to home design that utilizes unique and custom processes whenever necessary.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to chat with us (down below) or give us a call!

  • Can we walk through your show room or visit a model home?

    Each of our projects is as unique and diverse as our clients, which is exciting for us and important to our clients. However, if we have a project under construction, and we have the permission of the client we would love to show you a project in action! This is a great way to assess a contractor as you get to see things from the inside out. For Alair Homes Vancouver, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.

  • How experienced are your project managers?

    Since the success of your project relies heavily on strong management, we are extremely selective and hire only the best project managers.  Our project managers receive extensive and ongoing training on a weekly and monthly basis. The success of our business is built on the strength of our project managers and we are proud of the highly skilled team we have assembled at Alair Homes Vancouver.

  • What is your typical cost per square foot?

    Cost per square foot is a very poor way to gauge the cost of completing your custom home because it is only relevant if you are comparing the exact same home plan and fitted with the exact same fixtures.  Alair Homes Vancouver will not quote on a per square foot basis because we understand that if you are going to achieve total satisfaction from building your own custom home, you deserve to understand the true cost of your project that matches your goals and specifications. This requires a thorough budgeting process with a knowledgeable construction professional with past experience in your type of project.  This process does not take long and is the surest way to give you the confidence you need to understand what the total cost will be before the project starts.

  • How accurate is the free estimate?

    It is as accurate as the information that we have been provided.  This is why we spend all the time necessary with you to obtain every selection, review every drawing, and discuss every aspect of your project during the Design and Estimation phase.

  • Does Alair Homes Vancouver provide fixed price or cost plus contracting?

    We have developed a hybrid system known as Client Control™ that is the best of both worlds! We establish fixed prices from our trade partners and suppliers that create cost certainty plus you receive 100% transparency and control via an overall cost plus model. Please watch our video explaining Client Control™ and also download our report outlining the benefits of this revolutionary method.
