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

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 Summerville 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.

Alair just completed the second project for us. After building our new custom home we knew Alair was the company we wanted to build our detached garage. Justin was outstanding in managing the project, keeping us up to date on all aspects. They do quality work and are a great company to work with. Highly recommend them!

I have used their services twice, and I have been very pleased with their work. Jennings and Daniel have always done a great job. The cost and timeline are very transparent. I would hire them again.

Working with Alair was practically seamless from the beginning. They outlined the process and had a detailed itemized budget when we finished the Design & Estimate phase. It was so easy to have everything written down on paper so that we knew what would happen every step along the way. When there was a hiccup with the tile company (through no fault of Alair…) they went to bat for us to make sure they could keep the job on time as quickly as they could. I would work with them again no question.

Alair Homes recently completed a kitchen remodel in my home in Summerville. The results were fantastic and exceeded our expectations in every way! Both Jennings (the owner) and Martin (our Project Manager) were easy to work with and responsive. Due to some delays with the subs the project took a little longer than expected. But, they kept us in the loop as soon as they got updated statuses. The new kitchen isn’t just beautiful (see the pictures), but much more functional than the old one. My wife and I are looking forward to using it for years to come.

I would highly recommend Alair for any remodeling or building project!
