Frequently asked questions about custom homes

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

Can we walk through your showroom 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.

Another builder who I would prefer not to use said they would build my home for this really low price, can you match that price?

If you are seeking the absolute lowest price Alair Homes Nanaimo may not be your builder however we will secure the absolute best price on all the materials and labor because we are a preferred general contractor by suppliers and our cost is YOUR cost. We will charge fairly for our expertise and fiercely protect your budget. Our clients find that when compared to other builders Alair Homes Nanaimo delivers a far greater value for their investment and they truly appreciate the 100% cost transparency that only Alair Homes Nanaimo guarantees on every project. We encourage you to investigate every detail of your builder’s contract and learn what others have experienced before choosing any contractor. Alair Homes Nanaimo welcomes extreme due diligence because we know how important of a decision this is for you, your family and your future.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
