Frequently asked questions about custom homes

If you have any specific questions, feel free to 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 Lake Norman, 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 Lake Norman 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 Lake Norman delivers a far greater value for their investment and they truly appreciate the 100% cost transparency that only Alair Homes Lake Norman 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 Lake Norman 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 Lake Norman.

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.

“Lighthouse Residential Remodeling (Alair) was the only company I found that cared about the aesthetic aspect of the project as much as I did. The quality of their building process left me with no hesitation that I had absolutely picked the right contractor.”

David has managed three major renovations for us over the last 10 years – a kitchen remodel, master bath remodel, and most recently, a laundry room, mudroom and garage addition. He will initially give you a range for what your project will cost. If you move forward, he uses an extremely thorough process up front to get you very accurate costs, instead of giving you a ballpark estimate, as some subcontractors do, and then hitting you with added costs later on. That way, you know early on exactly what it will cost for what you said you wanted – and since it is before any work has started, you could adjust as needed to fit your budget. David has an engineering background and over 20 years’ experience in major residential remodeling and is dedicated to delivering high quality construction, not just a minimum standard that just meets building codes. He uses the best subcontractors – not only are they expert tradespeople, they are professional and pleasant to work with. David is transparent about budget and scheduling and interested in making sure you are comfortable and informed about what is happening with your project and that the result is the enhanced living space you were looking for. He gave us peace of mind through three major renovations – we would recommend him to anyone.


David is honest, professional and was extremely helpful during our kitchen/sunroom renovation. From planning to the finished product, he was there when we needed him. His subs are great. He has an excellent team to draw from. If something wasn’t quite right, he came back and fixed it. When we had questions, he told us the truth, not what we wanted to hear. When it looked like we were making a wrong choice, he gave us options. I am extremely pleased with the finished product. I would highly recommend him to any and all.
