Home Renovation FAQ's

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

  • Why is an Alair fee estimate typically more expensive than other contractors?

    It is all-inclusive and sets a realistic expectation of the finished project cost.  Most contractor estimates omit many components of your project in order to seem appealing at the beginning. Alair Homes is built on the highest levels of integrity and we believe the foundation to a lasting and successful relationship begins with honesty and transparency. Our Client Control™ methodology ensures you have all the information and education you deserve from day one. Please watch our video explaining Client Control and also download our report outlining the benefits of this revolutionary method.

  • 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.

  • Will I need a permit?

    If we are removing or adding walls, structural items or roof or windows, then a building permit will be needed. But that's a good thing! The cost is low and you get another inspector confirming everything is done right.

  • 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 Vancouver 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.

  • 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 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.
