Nanaimo custom homes, renovations & commercial

Alair Homes Nanaimo was founded in 2007 and our mission then is the same as it is today, to create incredible homes and business designs on Vancouver Island that are on time, on budget and superior in every way. Nanaimo also serves as our corporate headquarters, and the success of this office has led to expansion throughout North America.

Our Client Control™ process brings you 100% TRANSPARENCY

One of our defining attributes is a truly transparent approach to contracting, building, and renovations for both residential and commercial industries. Each project begins with a free quote and open, honest discussion about the client’s vision for the finished product. During this stage, we show our clients how we can create their dream space for less than they thought possible. When a client hires Alair Homes, they are a part of the process from start to finish. We offer proprietary project management software that allows clients to see what we see; from materials costs and trade quotes to builder’s contracts and more. This transparency is what makes Alair Homes unique, and is one of the reasons why we continue to be recognized throughout the home building and renovation industry.

We are not satisfied until the client is satisfied, and we take the time to ensure this with an inspection and walk through upon completion of every project. Whether we are designing a starter home, remodeling a kitchen or bathroom, or a multi-million dollar project on Vancouver Island, our work is backed by an industry leading guarantee and warranty. Give Alair Homes Nanaimo a call today to find out more about how we can help you turn your home building or renovation dreams into a reality.

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

  • 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 Nanaimo.

  • 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 Nanaimo, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.

  • 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 Nanaimo 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 Nanaimo 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.
