Contract objectives were parkade Foundation wall water proofing and reinforcement. David Babakaiff from Alair Homes Vancouver, performed professionally and sought solution to over come the obstacles during the course of the construction, i.e. engineering, material, permits ... Big thanks to David for his persistence and patience on this project at laurel point, Vancouver. Regards, Al

Alair Homes did a major condo renovation for me. I own a two bedroom, two bath which was completely gutted and redone. Everything from ceiling to floor was renovated. I am very happy with the outcome. They kept me updated with all the steps and procedures, and helped me get from point A to B. I would certainly recommend Alair Homes to anyone considering renovations. They worked well with the strata and management company. I really feel I got good value for my money, and honestly, I think I got better value than I would have had I chosen another contractor.

Michael wanted to re-create the look of the condo he was moving from, so we worked closely with him to re-create features so that his new place felt like home right away. It was a pleasure working with you Michael, and our best to you for many years of enjoyment in your new place.

Alair completely renovated one bathroom and installed a second one for me. I am very satisfied with the final outcome on both and will enjoy them both for many years to come.

Gordon's upper bathroom involved cutting an old steel tub in half to remove and removing plaster. His vision for the new bath is modern and stunningly gorgeous - came out looking great. Our pleasure helping with these Bath renos at your New Westminister home.

David from Alair Homes was excellent to deal with. He was always on time, whether it was for meetings or providing follow-up. His team doing the work was excellent, they were skilled, courteous and always left my house as tidy as can be expected. I would highly recommend Alair Homes.

Major renovation of an old home

We had Alair Homes complete a major renovation of an old home in Chemainus that had been renovated many times from its original construction as a summer home in the late 40's. Construction on a structure with different foundations, and building styles is fraught with unknowns and uncertainties. We knew this from the beginning and so did Alair Homes. David Babakaiff was the project supervisor and kept the lines of communication open and the house was completed with no compromises. All the surprises were dealt with in a professional and competent manner. The quality of subtrades was excellent and we couldn't be happier with the result.

Home renovation

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.
