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 Peterborough, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
If you are seeking the absolute lowest price Alair Peterborough 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 Peterborough delivers a far greater value for their investment and they truly appreciate the 100% cost transparency that only Alair Peterborough 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 Peterborough welcomes extreme due diligence because we know how important of a decision this is for you, your family and your future.
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 Peterborough.
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 Peterborough 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’ve hired Alair Homes Peterborough – Joanna Smeeth for a few renovation projects and have been completely satisfied with everything that has taken place. We have recommended Joanna to friends and family and will confidently continue to do so. Joanna has excellent taste and can tailor project requirements and design around a given budget and schedule. She is able to expertly manage both simple and complex projects and is completely transparent with everything. Highly highly recommended.

We hired Alair Homes Peterborough, Joanna Smeeth, to undertake extensive work on our Ontario Cottage. From our initial meeting, through the design process and rebuild, we had complete confidence in Joanna’s capability of managing the project, and her commitment to high quality work. Communication was open, including but not limited to: weekly updates, regular budget updates, frequent meetings ( in person and on the phone). We made several informal site visits, and found the team very professional & friendly. Knowing that there were many challenges with the project, Joanna made the process as stress free for us as possible. We love our house, and enjoyed watching the transformation. Thank you Joanna, it was a pleasure working with you, and we have no hesitation in recommending Alair Homes Peterborough.
So glad we went with Joanna and her amazing team for our renovation. She really listens and had our best interests in mind. The trades were professional and respectful, and the end result was beautiful. Wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again!
We worked with Alair Homes Peterborough to renovate a bathroom in our home. We had a vision in mind; but with Alair Homes’ help, our bathroom truly became the dream space it was meant to be. The bathroom is beautifully designed and incredibly functional for our family. From sourcing custom pieces to the best materials and trades, Joanna listened to our needs and managed everything from start to finish with creativity and ease. She was transparent, responsive and lovely to work with at all points of the project; which was also well organized and on budget. We love our bathroom and would highly recommend Alair Homes to others and work with them again.
