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 Collingwood.
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 Collingwood 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.
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 above explaining Client Control™ and also download our report outlining the benefits of this revolutionary method.
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 Collingwood, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
We have worked with Alair Homes twice now on two major renovations to our 4000 sq ft century home. Kevin and Laurie are running a seriously professional operation. The planning and attention to detail that goes into each project, I believe is a key factor to the success of their work. They offer a very user friendly online system which will keep you informed of their progress and show you exactly where money is being spent. They are very knowledgeable, they’re there when you need them and they stand by their work. If you’re thinking of building a custom home or doing a large renovation, these are the people you’ve been looking for. Give them a call and they will work with you to make your vision a reality, and they’ll make it a great experience along the way.
Our 3 storey, 30 year old home, was renovated from top to bottom by Alair Homes. From design to completion, Alair Homes was nothing but professional and transparent in their dealings with us. Their relationships with all of the trades made this project a very smooth process. We could not have done this without them. Very happy with the end result. Would highly recommend them.

Kevin and his team are highly personable, professional and produce high quality homes. More importantly, their whole pricing and process is transparent, so that you know how much everything will cost up front with no hidden fees. A totally different experience than with other builders who start with a lower estimate and end up adding on “extras” which break the bank.

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank The Blair family, Kevin, Laurie and Brodey, for the amazing job that they did in building our retirement home. We bought some land in Collingwood and we decided to retire there and we interviewed a number of local home builders. After our 1st meeting with the Blair’s, we new instantly, that they were the builders we were going with. There was no hidden agenda. They were very precise, friendly, and most of all, knowledgeable. They made you feel like you were part of their family. They took a genuine concern, knowing that there is a lot of stress involved in such a project. Their honesty was overwhelming.
From the start to the finish, they walked you through the whole adventure. Yes, we ran into a couple of hiccups, but were taken care of immediately in a very professional matter. There was nothing that The Blair’s did not have control of. Their son Brodey was exceptional, filling us in everyday, about the next stage.
We highly recommend The Blair’s (Alair Homes) to anyone that is having a new home being built or renovated. They managed to take the worry and stress that you have, when taking on a project like this. Wendy and I cannot say and thank the Blair’s enough, for our magnificent retirement home. We have had nothing but WOW’S from all our friends and family.
Thanks again Kevin, Laurie and Brodey and The Alair Family.
