A skilled condo renovation contractor is required if you’re doing more than painting or installing new floors in a condominium. Condos pose unique challenges, limiting work within the blueprint of the building since exterior features cannot be changed, as well as requiring special strata and city permits. Typically condo kitchen and bathroom renovations are dictated by the plumbing’s placement, but at Alair Homes Vancouver we have been successful in getting approvals to move the plumbing in concrete buildings, increasing livability and re-sale value.
If you want to update cabinets and countertops or enlarge your kitchen or bathroom, we have the renovation experience, creative designers, and professional teams to produce the best results worthy of any professional chef. Alair’s clients enjoy the certainty of using our Client Control™ method that keeps all information available on-line 24/7, letting you track and approve your costs and timelines for full transparency throughout your renovation.

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 Vancouver.
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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
In search of the perfect fit, our development group interviewed 5 top rated builders in the Greater Vancouver area. It was David Babakaiff’s professionalism, attention to detail, and willingness to work with us and our specific requirements that set Alair Homes apart from the rest. The custom one off home is now complete, and we couldn’t be happier with the service and quality. We will work with David and Alair again in the near future.
We recently completed a renovation with Alair Homes and are very happy with the results! From creating a project plan and identifying trades that would be suitable within our budget, to working as a team to solve the inevitable issues that come up along the way, their responsiveness and professionalism were much appreciated. We would absolutely work with Alair again in the future.

My husband and I recently downsized from a house to a condo in the city. After meeting the team from Alair Homes at the home show, we instantly felt that they would be a good choice.
From the start, the team’s knowledge, professionalism and openness was very reassuring to us. Their communication with our strata and the city, was a great weight off our shoulders.
All the details in the planning, design and budget were discussed openly and a computer program was set up, so we could track the progress as well.
All in all, the whole renovation was a huge success, we absolutely love our new home.
Our heartfelt thanks to David Babakaiff and his team!
We would definitely recommend Alair Homes.
We’ve had the pleasure of collaborating on projects with Alair Homes over the past few years and they are an amazing custom homebuilder to work with. Being in the industry for over 12 years, our firm has worked with many different homebuilders. Without a doubt, Alair Homes is definitely among the best in terms of quality, transparency, and service excellence. Their unique business model allows them to give the homeowner a high quality home at an extremely competitive price based on their purchasing power of having multiple locations. This model is brilliant, as it creates a huge win-win for the homeowner client. Also, their business systems allow them to give homeowners a complimentary initial budget, which is a great service to homeowners considering building a custom home, and in the early stages of their project. Over the years, we have seen the “behind the scenes” of their business as their design partner, and only have raving reviews of each project we have complete with Alair. I would highly recommend Alair Homes to any homeowner looking to build a custom home.
