Alair Homes Expands Custom Home Building and Renovations Services Across Barrie & Orillia Region

Every family dreams of owning the perfect home. But the opportunity to renovate, or build a home from scratch, can often seem too stressful, or just out of reach budget-wise. However, there’s a company in town that’s shaking up how custom home building and renovations are done by putting their customers in charge of the process, truly listening to their needs, and keeping labour and design costs transparent.

Alair Homes is excited to expand into the booming Orillia community, having already served satisfied customers throughout the Barrie region as well. Alair’s goal is to form relationships with customers and put them in charge of their home building or renovation process in order to deliver a superior finished product together, with less stress.

Alair Homes’ Barrie & Orillia headquarters is led by a knowledgeable team including partners Ryan Johnson and Albert Donadio (pictured below, alongside the Mayor of Orillia). According to Johnson, “there’s so much positivity and so much growth here. We couldn’t be more excited to be expanding our footprint in this region.”

When homeowners consider building or renovating, they often ask about the costs associated with the process. All custom builds and home renovations require an economic investment, but Alair Homes uses all resources available to them to fiercely protect the financial interest of their customers.

This dynamic company has created a strong reputation in the industry and worked hard to form relationships with the best construction supply houses and sub-contractors. They use their reputation and relationships to leverage the best costs on high-quality materials and contractor services in order to obtain the best prices and quality for their customers.

Alair also makes use of state-of-the-art proprietary software to manage projects and build trust – giving homebuyers or renovators photos, videos and a checklist of how their home is progressing throughout the entire process. Value is an integral part of Alair’s custom home building and renovation services, and that’s why Ryan and Albert live by their promise to offer superior general contracting and construction services in a way that clients can understand.

The Alair Homes motto, “living better starts here,” is as true for the entire team as it is for each project. Of himself and his co-owner in the business, Johnson says, “we chose to expand our location footprint because it aligned with exactly what our intentions were – living better starts here, not just for our happy clients, but for each person who works for or with us, such as tradespeople and suppliers, as well as their families.”

Alair Homes also prides itself in being active in the local community, recently partnering with the Hockey Helps the Homeless organization to help raise $150,000 to help end homelessness in Barrie and the surrounding area. With such an emphasis on keeping things local, giving back and ensuring community growth is a key aspect of the business for Alair Homes.

The Alair philosophy is to “provide a service to our clients while doing what we love.” If you’re interested in building a home or renovating the one you have, you can visit or  to schedule a free consultation to learn more about the many advantages of building or renovating with Alair Homes.
