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 Scarborough.
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 Scarborough 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 Scarborough, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
We did an addition to our back split home to increase the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The renovation turned out even better then we dreamed! We were concerned about the house not having a cohesive look – but as you can see from the photos, it turned our mid-century-modern beautiful! We used Alair from design right through to final construction. They especially aided us in achieving the exterior aesthetic we were hoping for – and did some beautiful vaulted ceiling work on the inside too. The project did go over time due to some trade shortages in Toronto and a permit application delay, however, it did stay on budget and were pleased with the quality of work and the end product. Compared to other construction in our neighborhood, the quality of the work in our house was definitely better, and that was with a modest budget. Greg and John were extremely knowledgeable and were able to give us good advice. We were able to trust them and they were always available for our questions and calls. We made a wise choice and would work with them again.
Awesome service ! Very thorough knowledge and transparent in the process of the construction process, highly recommended
We had a very positive experience with ALair Homes Scarborough. Every detail of our home extension which we desired was patiently implemented with high quality by John. The quality of material, workmanship and overall project management was outstanding. We have had very good reviews from people who have visited our home.
We live in the beaches-area of Toronto and after meeting with a good number of contractors, we settled, comfortably, with Alair Homes. The relationship between the client and contractor is an important piece to help deal with any bumps along the renovation road. Luckily we didn’t have any major issues and if anything, Alair Homes suggested slight alterations (to our architects plans) along the way to better suit our needs. We dealt primarily with John and Greg and both were quite easy to speak with at all hours of the day. My husband would start many days communicating (via text and phone calls) with Greg as early as 6am to ensure all short term and long term decisions were agreed upon. As the entire project is itemized prior to starting, it allowed my husband and I to see, dollar for dollar, where our money was being spent. It also allowed my husband the freedom to pick and choose the work that he wanted to do in order to save some cash. We had purchased the hardwood and exterior siding (to collect credit card points), and Alair Homes was completely okay with our plan. Greg even spent a day with m husband to teach him how to lay down hardwood flooring. He even leant me the floor nailer for as long as I needed it.
Overall, Alair Homes was professional to the max! We will hire them in a heartbeat for any future work. Since we lived in our house during our renovation, they were extremely supportive by ensuring the doors to our two kids rooms were sealed, nails and screws picked up around the house, and were always respectful of our neighbours and their property.
