One of our units was destroyed by the fire in February 2016. The unit was completely restored by the end of September 2016.
We didn't have any problem with their contractors or with the company. Overall our experience was positive.
We contacted Carlin from Aliar Homes after our home received some hail damage. We wanted to replace our eavestroughs with rain chains, and Carlin was a wealth of information for us on the process. He had all our downspouts replaced and hidden out of sight...properly.
We are extremely happy with the outcome, quality of materials, and workmanship. A job very well done and we would highly recommend using Carlin and Alair homes.
Thank you Carlin.
We began working with Carlin and Alair Homes in the late spring of 2015. Carlin and his crew are very professional, clean and engaging. Perhaps the greatest quality Carlin provides is his personalization of his services. The ongoing communication reassures you that error in details will be minimized if not completely avoided. Like most contractors I have dealt with our project did exceed the scheduled completion date. Some of this the responsibility of Alair (which they owned) and some of it ours as we were constantly adding extra details to our build. This flexibility helped create a structure we are proud of. I would certainly recommend Alair home for any type of construction project you maybe considering.
The Alair team, led by Dustin and Leigh, completed a fantastic transition in our home. Their attention to detail, helpful guidance and commitment to budget and schedule (while we lived in the home during the process) was exceptional. We strongly recommend Alair Homes for any renovation project, large or small.
Daily dedicated progress was made on the project. Communication and guidance was provided daily. Budget was transparent with real time updates, and there were no budget surprises. Project was completed early and on budget.
The plans and designs that we had developed and tweaked for years, were completely embraced by Alair Homes Calgary. Alair worked to make our dream a reality. At every point Carlin tried to imagine what we were envisioning, and then made it happen. On areas that we found difficult, Carlin found solutions and brought forward ideas that matched what we had imagined. One of the best discoveries, at the end of the project, was that we came in on budget! Finally, the fact that we were involved completely in each step, made us feel like we moved into OUR home, rather than someone else's plan. Thank you Alair Homes Calgary!
Be careful and do your research before you choose this company.
You start with an estimate,verify the scope of work and the materials to be used. Sign their contract with a $2500 non refundable deposit. Carlin would not accept the check inside the home,we had to step outside the front door. This should have been a red flag for us right away.
His tradesmen then came in to estimate the job themselves and the overall total went up by 60,000. I trusted Carlin to estimate the renovation with some accuracy. His hvac estimated the cost of his work 120% above two other hvac companies that I asked to come in separately. The other two were within $100 dollars of each other. Alair Homes of course is cost plus.
This was enough for me to fire Alair homes Calgary and contact Renomark and a few other associations to complain about how they conduct their business. Alair attempted to charge us an additional $3000 on top of the $2500 yet no renovation had even been started. I have no tolerance for this type of company and will continue to share my story with as many people as I can.
Thank you for your review and as with any client concerns, we take it very seriously and are committed to finding clarity and resolution. As you have stated, we do start our process with a free estimate, which is as accurate as the information that has been provided to us. In the free estimate you explained to us your vision and your intended outcome. After you chose to proceed, we moved into the Design & Estimation (D&E) phase where you signed the D&E Contract and you provided us a deposit for the initial costs. We then spent the time necessary with you to obtain the selections, drawings, designs, renderings and quotes etc. If you choose to add selections to the project scope at any time or there are unforeseen issues (eg: wiring not up to AB code), your overall total budget will increase in price. We work hard with our clients to help them achieve the desired out come on their project and as things have to be adjusted on occasion due to your basements layout you chose, wiring, plumbing and heating ducts that have to be moved, altered and brought up to code, we still strive to help lower the project cost if possible by adjusting the projects scope, adjusting products and making sure we are getting fair pricing.
From the outset we found the Alair people to be frank, helpful, courteous and understanding of our desires. This atmosphere prevailed during the entire process. They were accommodating and communication was always first rate. More could be said but to be succinct we would add our unqualified recommendation of their services.
Alair Homes was hired to build us an oversized detached garage, 22' x 24'. Pictures are attached to the review and you can see the great work for yourself. It was fast and efficient. Workers were here almost everyday until the job was done (weather permitting). Labour was a great price compaired to all the other garage builders we contacted. The employees were able to adjust to any last minute requests we threw at them without any issues. Friendly and good communication, I would gladly recommend Alair Homes for any day for any type of job.
Alair Homes has recently built us two investment rental homes. The estimated time frame for completion of the build was right on schedule allowing us to have our renters in place right away. We were very impressed with the service they provided and have decided use them again on four more investment properties. Support, repairs and questions after the build is very important to us, and Alair exceeds our expectations continually. We highly recommend them for your new home builds.
