Frequently asked questions about custom homes

If you have any specific questions, feel free to chat with us or give us a call!

Can we walk through your showroom or visit a model home?

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.

Another builder who I would prefer not to use said they would build my home for this really low price, can you match that price?

If you are seeking the absolute lowest price Alair Homes Vancouver 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 Homes Vancouver delivers a far greater value for their investment and they truly appreciate the 100% cost transparency that only Alair Homes Vancouver 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 Homes Vancouver welcomes extreme due diligence because we know how important of a decision this is for you, your family and your future.

How experienced are your Project Managers?

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.

What is your typical cost per square foot?

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.

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.

Condo Renovation

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.
