A review for Alair Homes & Renovations
I have provided letters of reference to two couples from Ontario, planning to retire in BC, regarding the quality and professionalism of the Allair team. I found management to be responsive, professional, with respect to any questions during the construction process. The co-construct computer program was extremely valuable as it provided daily updates on the construction progress. I was in a position to visit the worksite on a daily basis and therefore got to know the trades personnel. They all had a long term working relationship with Alair and therefore there were no supprises, delays, or financial issues. Whereas at times there were a half dozen workers on our site, on other sites we saw one or two people. Clearly, economies of scale is a relevant issue. On the financial side, we came in very close to budget. I made some changes during construction which accounts for some of the deviation. All around the budgeting, financial control process was sound. Prior to signing a contract, we "intervied" the contractors, Alair being one. Mr. Babakaiff spent a considerable amount of time with us reviewing our draft plans. He actually had Alairs' architect produce a set of plans before we signed a contract. The other two companies had no interest in providing anything until we signed on the dotted line. As a former Dean of a business school, I found their approach somewhat curious. I strongly recommend Alair to anyone considering major renovations or building a new home.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
