Why should people consider hiring a local builder with a national affiliation?

When our clients work with us, they get the best of both worlds. Alair Homes Arlington (formerly Arlington Construction Management) is part of a national network, so I’m constantly interacting with builders all over the country and keeping up with the latest trends. I have over 20 years of experience building and renovating homes right here in Arlington. My wife and I are raising our four children here in the same types of homes we work on every day.

What are the benefits of true transparency during the building process?

Through our affiliation with Alair Homes, we use a proprietary construction management process called Client Control™ that allows clients to take control of every aspect of their project. The level of transparency we provide is unprecedented in this industry. Using an interactive web portal, our clients have access to all the same information we have, including actual costs, vendor information and a detailed timeline of the project. They are intricately involved with the entire process and have 24/7 visibility of every aspect of their project.

To avoid unexpected challenges, we start each renovation project with an extensive planning process which includes investigating the home and identifying potential problems. We open up the bulkhead to check the piping and thoroughly evaluate the home for any pitfalls that may occur. Having worked in this industry for many years, I’m very aware of the common problems that sometimes pop up and I’m able to anticipate many of these risks before we begin. We discuss these possibilities with our clients up front so there are fewer surprises.

Our transparent process is all about communication and trust. We establish a partnership with our clients and ensure that they are informed and empowered every step of the way.
