Home Addition Contractor in Nepean and Ottawa
We specialize in building beautiful, spacious, and modern home additions.
Building an addition onto your home is often the most economical option if your family is out-growing your current home (especially in today's booming housing market!) Do you love your current neighborhood and don’t want to go through the stress and hassle of selling your home and buying something bigger and more suitable? If you have the space on your property then building “out” a new home addition is a great way to increase your living space, make your home more suitable, and also increase your property value. With the assistance of an engineer, it’s even possible to add a second story to an existing home if you have a smaller city lot without room to build out.

What You Need to Know About Home Additions
Home additions are big and involved projects and to build one properly you need the help of a professional contractor who has experience building home additions. There may be zoning issues that need to be addressed, property setbacks that need to be adhered to, a foundation will need to be excavated and poured, building permits will be required, there will also be multiple trades working on the project including electricians, plumbing, and even roofing. All of the different trades will need to be coordinated and organized so the project goes smoothly.
#1. Do you have a budget you’re working with? When it comes to building a home addition, your budget will be the deciding factor in what you can actually do and how fancy or basic it will be. Do you want only the finest luxury materials to be used such as hardwood flooring, tile, granite, and custom cabinetry, or are you okay with more economical choices like carpet or LVT (luxury vinyl tile)? There are many decisions to be made and you want to make sure your contractor is providing solutions that are going to be within your budget. It’s important that a budget be set early in the consultation process so that realistic expectations can be set with regards to timelines and final cost.
#2. What type of home addition do you want or need? It’s always best to go into this type of project knowing exactly what you want and this is usually based on your specific family needs. Changing your mind once a home addition project has started can potentially be very costly and only adds to the length of time the project will take to complete. Do you want a simple room addition to make your master bedroom larger? Do you need an additional room for one of your children? Do you need a quiet place to work? Are you looking for a completely new living space for your growing family? While these are all home additions, they are all very different projects both in scope and final costs. During our initial consultation with you we can help you narrow down your specific needs in a home addition to help you come up with a realistic plan.
#3. Do you have an older home? This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it’s important to know that once we start tearing into an older home to build an addition there might be surprises that were not anticipated. You might have old and deteriorating plumbing, maybe the electrical system needs to be upgraded, maybe there are other issues with the home or property that need to be repaired. We’ll take every possible precaution to mitigate these risks but when it comes to big construction projects like an addition it’s important to understand there could be some unexpected speed bumps along the way.
Choosing a contractor with experience is a great insurance policy against setbacks derailing your project as they will have the knowledge to come up with a plan that will keep the project on track.
Before you consider moving ahead with your home addition project we’d love to come and take a look for you. We can take a look at your home and property and determine any challenges you might have to face such as adding onto an older home, adhering to property setbacks, zoning or permit issues, and more. After we’ve discussed your needs and learned a little more about your specific situation we’ll be able to come up with a great solution for your new home addition.
