Sometimes the perfect house is not so perfect at first, but completing a major renovation can make all the difference. We use only the finest materials and have the skills to create beautiful finished products. Our past projects include fully finished basements, home additions, luxurious bathrooms and designer kitchens. At the beginning of a project, clients are given access to our innovative online system, allowing them to see what we see and make decisions about their budgets, timelines, designs and materials.
With Alair Homes, your renovation begins with a free, no-obligation quote and meeting with a member of our Nanaimo team. During this first conversation, we discuss your vision, review your budget and share our creative design ideas. During this meeting and throughout the building process we encourage questions, welcome changes and invite you to remain as involved as you would like to be in the process of completing your home renovation.
Learn how gaining certainty before you ever begin is the smartest, safest way to build or renovate.
Know the difference between Client Control, fixed price and cost plus and how each determine the outcome of your experience.

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.
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.
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 Nanaimo, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
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.
We have worked with Alair Homes since 2006 helping provide them with their plumbing and heating needs. It has been an absolute pleasure working for Alair Homes over these 9 years. The Alair Team, provides exceptional service, providing the customer with design, budgets and schedules. They keep the customer informed from start to finish, having excellent design abilities and are very helpful in steering the client away from bad decisions. Alair has amassed a team of professionals that continue meet or exceed the high quality of workmanship that Alair reputation has been known for. We at Harbour City Plumbing & Gas highly recommend Alair Homes to anyone.
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.
