Alair Homes Solon is a trusted, locally owned and operated general contractor with extensive knowledge in renovating kitchens. Our team has assisted on a variety of projects of all scopes and sizes. On each one, we listen first, learn about the needs and demands of the homeowner, offer professional advice to help families make effective choices and provide assurance that quality and communication are always central to how we do business.
At every stage of construction, clients maintain control over their projects when working with Alair Homes Solon. From selecting natural stone surfaces for their countertops to reviewing sub-contractor bids for their cabinet installation or inspection reports after electrical and plumbing work is complete, our proprietary online system makes it easy for clients to stay involved, communicate and make important decisions. This system helps us to eliminate unwanted surprises and unexpected costs, and it makes it possible for homeowners to feel actively included in their home renovation rather than experiencing stress and anxiety over the project.

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 Solon.
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 Solon 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 Solon, this is also an opportunity to show what makes our approach so unique and what makes Alair such a different kind of contractor.
We love our remodeled kitchen and new mudroom/back entrance and porch. Our 1956 ranch style home was way overdue for a kitchen remodel. Ken did an excellent job coordinating all the tradesmen who worked on our home and kept us in communication with their progress. He has an eye for detail and makes sure everything is done right. I appreciated the Alair model of cost transparency and would recommend Ken and Alair Homes for any remodeling projects.

Our architect introduced us to Ken at Alair Homes for an addition and exterior update on our home. Ken was on site every day, and was always pleasant and cheerful. The trades he hired were all very professional and took pride in their work. Ken has the highest standards, and does not rest until every aspect of the job is completed to his satisfaction. Ken was incredibly responsive and proactive. He was also very creative in dealing with issues that cropped up along the way. We are extremely pleased with the results of our project, and happily recommend him to anyone in need of a general contractor.

Our company worked with Ken on the large contemporary award-winning renovation project in Bratenahl. Through client changes and unexpected existing conditions, Ken and his crew navigated the project to high success. Ken expected quality work from his group and the client is very happy with the end product.
We worked with Ken on a remodel of our 120 yr old home. We heard of Ken through online reviews, as well as from the architect we worked with. The project included addition of a 2-car garage to the back of the house, as well as a complete gut and renovation of a large master suite. During our initial meeting with Ken, we knew he was the right person for the project. He was knowledgeable and transparent about the scope and cost of the project. He routinely checked on the site and communicated the progress with us throughout. Our biggest concern was staying on the budget, and Ken made sure to keep us on track and completed the project on budget and on schedule. We did not have to worry about the schedule, coordinating the trades, etc. We left it all in Ken’s hands. Everything Ken told us about the project was realistic (including timeline and budget) and we knew exactly what to expect. It was completely hassle-free working with Ken. He was very professional and quality of the work was above expectations. I would recommend Ken without any trepidation and would definitely rehire him for a future project.
