Whether you have outgrown your smaller home but still want to stay or have found a special bungalow that’s perfect for your family in every way except size, a home addition might be the answer to your problems. With a home addition, you increase square footage by either building up or out. When done professionally, you maintain the aesthetic qualities you love about your home and even enhance the beauty and property value. This is a win-win for many homeowners and a great way to enjoy a home that you love without feeling cramped or disorganized.
Home additions are quite complex. Executing one properly involves precise planning as well as a clear understanding of codes and regulations. Having a professional like Alair Homes Arlington on your side makes a world of difference. We understand the importance of professional oversight and clear communication, meaning we’ll keep your project running smoothly while also ensuring you remain involved every step of the way. Our approach is simple – we create a partnership with every client, aligning our efforts with your goals and providing professional guidance and advice to ensure your home addition meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

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 Arlington.
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 Arlington 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 Arlington, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
I have worked with several builders in the area and Chad is one of the best to work with in terms of cost, quality and service.
Working with Jason Chaney of Alair was a positive experience. He was always responsive – even if the response was something I didn’t want to hear (renovations always have hitches) and he was always, always professional in all of his interactions. I appreciated his customer service very much. He also took the time to explain things, give me options that made sense, and adhere to deadlines (that were in his control – the weather can’t be controlled of course!). The project went a lot more smoothly because of Jason’s management of all aspects of the build.

Chad helped us relaunch our preschool in record time with a quick response to our needs, additions, and last minute changes in a small renovation on the outside of our building. He was attentive, answering every email and text quickly and efficiently and made us feel like a priority. As a small, non-profit preschool, it was refreshing for us to feel like we were at top priority and because of Chad’s service, we were able to meet our needs in record time. For future projects at our school and at home, we will contact Chad in the future.
We began our project with a real life “love it or list it” scenario and ended up determining that we needed to “love” our current house. After meeting with several different builders/home renovators we felt the most confident proceeding with Alair Homes, formerly Arlington Construction Management. Chad Hackmann met with us and explained the Alair process and upfront pricing. We appreciated the opportunity to select different sub-contractors based on a combination of project-specific bids and reputation. Throughout the process, Chad and his team were responsive to our inquiries, whether big or small.
Our project manager, Jason, responded to everyone of our queries within 24 hours and both he and Chad were willing to lend their opinions, advice, and expertise when we found our own lacking. The experience was easy and exciting as we let them manage the details while we selected our options and focused on customizing our dream home .
Chad, Jason, and the entire Alair team made what could be a stressful process enjoyable!
