Stylish Victoria Outdoor Living Areas

If your back yard is nothing more than a landscaped garden, it might be time to enhance all that space to create new outdoor living areas. Today’s homeowners aren’t satisfied with a beautiful house. They want a home that enhances their lifestyle, too. Your yard has enormous potential. You could add your own mini-spa or outdoor kitchen complete with a bar area and fireplace. A swimming pool or hot tub is precisely what you need to soothe away the week’s anxieties, and a separate building for parties and barbecues is perfect for entertaining.

Transparency, Ethics, and Control

Alair Homes Victoria has developed a trademarked Client Control ™ system, which puts all the information about your project online where you can access it 24/7. Nothing will be hidden from you. The cost of labor, materials, and scheduling are provided, assuring you of ethical, honest service while letting you take the reins of your project. You can adjust all aspects of the renovation to suit your budget as we progress.

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

  • Can we walk through your show room 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 Victoria, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.

  • 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 Victoria.

  • 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 Victoria 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.

  • How accurate is the free estimate?

    It is as accurate as the information that we have been provided.  This is why we spend all the time necessary with you to obtain every selection, review every drawing, and discuss every aspect of your project during the Design and Estimation phase.

  • Does Alair Homes Victoria provide fixed price or cost plus contracting?

    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 explaining Client Control™ and also download our report outlining the benefits of this revolutionary method.
