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 Charleston, 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 Charleston 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 Charleston delivers a far greater value for their investment and they truly appreciate the 100% cost transparency that only Alair Homes Charleston 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 Charleston 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 Charleston.

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 Charleston 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 hired Alair Homes in the fall of 2018 to begin interior remodeling of our home after reviewing vendors in the area. Alair was the only contractor that had all 5 Star ratings on the Internet. The Alair team of Mark, Michael, Daniel, and Jennings were outstanding from beginning to end. Michael was our project manager and did an excellent job managing subcontractors (Who were also excellent), providing his suggestions, and actually doing hands-on work. Their software system allowed us to clearly know the work to be done, the cost, and the timeline for work completion which was on time and under projected cost. We highly recommend the Alair team and their subcontractors.

We have used Alair and Jennings Smith’s team for two kitchen remodels and we wont hesitate to use them again when needed. Jennings and Alair provided top quality construction and supervision. Their process provided multiple options of personalization educating us along the way so we knew what would be done, why it is was being done, and what expect. If you are considering Alair, I encourage you to do a consultation with them before you hire another team. We saw a significant difference in professionalism and I bet you will too.
