Frequently Asked Questions

You May be wondering…

Maybe you shouldn’t. With a tremendous amount of intellectual capital and over 1,000 years of custom residential building and remodeling business ownership experience, we’re only interested in partnering with growth-minded business owners who aren’t willing to settle for the status quo.

The following are the most common things we hear from business owners when we ask them what challenges they are trying to overcome in their business:

  1. I would like to develop an exit strategy that will allow me to transfer/sell equity to members of my existing team or sell the business to a third party.

  2. I want a model with predictable increased margins as revenues increase.
  3. I want a safe, scalable business that protects and enhances my personal brand reputation & client satisfaction as top line revenues grow.
  4. I would like to invest fewer hours on the business while operating profits continue increasing.
  5. I want my business to run efficiently and safely without me, while producing consistent results.
  6. With the right team and resources, I love the idea of owning multiple companies in different markets.

This was a primary concern for every Alair owner here today, and for good reason. As a group, we’re as proud of the brands that have joined us as the owners’ were, and we remain proud of those collective brands today. This is because they haven’t changed.

It’s important to recognize the difference between your brand and your company name. If we find that our brands are not tightly aligned (core values, core purpose, and beliefs) it would not make sense for either of us to consider working together. 

If we do find that alignment of our brands, the only thing that would change, in time, would be the name. With every company that joins Alair, we develop a tailored strategy for the naming transition. Depending on the age and level of name recognition in your market, this transition may take anywhere from months to years to fully implement.

Our proprietary software is merely one of many tools that drives Alair. Every aspect of our model—our tools, our structure and our processes have been carefully developed with centuries of industry experience to compliment one another. This collective system yields outcomes that no single component could ever accomplish.

The first step is a confidential executive level discussion, builder to builder. We don’t have a sales team as we’re looking to discuss partnerships, not transactions. Here is an outline of how we would work together to determine whether or not there is a mutual fit:

  1. 15 Minute Intro Call with our Director of Market Development; if that call warrants further discussion then
  2. 1 Hour Call – We will share more details about each other’s values and long term goals; if we find enough alignment then
  3. 4 Weekly 1.5 hour screenshare sessions – to share the deeper details of Alair then
  4. Validation calls with existing Alair Partners – Our single biggest risk is bringing the wrong person into the group. We all fly the same flag at Alair and work very collaboratively. This requires a high degree of mutual respect at the table, and both sides need to be confident before final due diligence.
