From adding a bathroom to finishing a basement to creating an outdoor living space or opening up the kitchen, home renovations encompass many different things. Regardless of the size or scope of the project, budget is always important to consider. Alair Homes pays attention to the bottom line, and we vow never to begin a project if the finances do not make sense.
Throughout the building process, every member of the Alair Homes Peterborough team makes it a priority to keep the client involved and informed. We utilize a sophisticated software system to provide our clients with complete transparency, and we regularly schedule meetings to review job specifics, discuss timelines and address questions or concerns. Our Peterborough general contractors work with homeowners to discover innovative home improvement ideas, and we leverage our industry leading reputation to secure exceptional prices on materials and sub-contractors. By doing this, we help our clients to complete their dream renovations for less.

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