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.

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.
The Alair team and the recommended subcontractors and tradesmen were truly talented and delivered on quality. We had an architectural design prepared and prior to construction, the Alair team made suggestions that we incorporated into the renovation that made it even better. The Alair Homes Summerville team really delivered on this project, the home is now beautifully renovated throughout. Jennings, Michael, Martin, Mark & Justin worked well as a team and were quick to remedy the few issues that presented during the renovation, it is an older home and it was hiding a few things. We highly recommend them. Alair Homes Summerville should be on your short list of builders. Yes, we would hire them again for another custom home or renovation project.
Karen MurphyAlair 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!
Amanda LachapelleI 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.
