Had a wonderful experience dealing with Alair homes for our commercial build. Stu and his team were straight forward and stuck to their word throughout the build. They navigated the permit process and offered us advise to stay on budget. I would absolutely recommend dealing with them on a custom home, renovation or commercial build.

Alair Homes Nanaimo is the best! They completed the reno of our original 1980’s west coast home almost two years ago. We completely redid the interior – kitchen, flooring, 3 baths, two fireplaces and the laundry room. Dan and Stu were professional and great to work with. I always felt they kept our best interests in mind and were very conscientious in managing our budget and time constraints. The entire project came in on time (under six weeks!), and on budget and we could not be happier with the end result.
I plan on using them again this spring to update the exterior and our garage…
Thank you Alair!!

Michelle Pesant

We had Alair Homes Nanaimo build our retirement dream home for us, and we could not have been happier with the results. We were worried at the start of the process as we lived in Ottawa while our house was being built, but our Project Manager Matt was absolutely fantastic in keeping us up-to-date with everything. Matt or Stu called us a few times every week to tell us how things were progessing, they sent pictures of ongoing construction and they were extremely patient with our numerous questions.

We would not hesitate to recommend Alair Homes Nanaimo to anyone looking for a first class home builder, they showed concern for every little detail, gave us lots of helpful ideas to improve our house, and they really showed they cared in doing the best possible job to build our dream home. All of the Alair staff were a pleasure to work with, everyone was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.
