Why hire a home addition contractor

Planning a home addition is no simple feat. Not only do you have to consider which skilled professionals you need for the job (e.g., architects, engineers), but you also have to pick out all the materials, such as the exterior siding and interior flooring. Doing it all on your own can be overwhelming, which is why we recommend hiring one of our home addition contractors. They’ll take care of every detail for you, from start to finish, and ensure that everything meets your needs, budget, and desired aesthetic.

A dedicated Renovation Advisor is assigned to your project. Your Advisor will be there to schedule appointments, help you understand quotes, provide you with a Verification Report for each contractor, and support you until your renovation is complete.

What to ask a home addition contractor

Before the work begins, it’s important to meet with potential home addition contractors. It’ll give you a chance to chat about your project and get a feel for them as a person. If you find that you get along better with one contractor versus another, trust that gut feeling – it’s a good sign! That said, we still suggest asking them at least some of the following questions to better understand what kind of work you’ll be getting into.

What can a home addition contractor do?

Bump Out Addition

A bump out addition is typically a much smaller home addition project, ranging from adding more space to an existing room to adding an entirely new room. This is a great choice if you need a little extra living space for you and your family to live comfortably.

Sunroom Addition

This type of addition adds a bright and sunny multipurpose room to your home! Depending on your needs, you can opt for something as simple as a screened porch to something as complex as a closed-off, four-season space. Of course, the latter will need extras like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC work.

Second Storey Addition

This is a great option if you want to convert a bungalow into a two-storey home. Your home addition contractor will work together with an architect or structural engineer to determine your options to help achieve your dream home!

Garage Addition

If you’re looking for a place to store your tools, outdoor sports gear, and car(s), a garage addition might be your best bet. Be sure to check local bylaws to see what the requirements are for things like insulation. Of course, if you only need a shelter for your car, you can opt for a carport instead.

A Room Above the Garage

Sometimes you need a little extra space, be it for a bedroom, office, or additional storage. If you’re already looking at building a garage, consider adding a room above it to serve any other needs you may have.

How much does a home addition cost?

A home addition contractor’s rates will vary based on their experience, qualifications, and services offered. For example, some contractors offer full turnkey services (e.g., initial design to completion), while others specialize in certain trades like exterior siding. In general, it’s best to go with a home addition contractor that offers turnkey solutions to avoid potential headaches and budget issues.

Depending on the size of your home addition, the materials you’ve selected, and how many labour hours are needed to get the work done, the cost of a home addition can be anywhere between $240 and $480 per square foot.
