Second Story Home Addition Contractors

Starting at $250,000

If the footprint of your lot limits you or you do not want to sacrifice outdoor space, building up with a second story home addition can be a perfect solution. For owners of ranchers or bungalows, removing the roof and adding a second floor can provide valuable extra space with more bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas.

Many homeowners find that adding a second floor above the garage is a cost-effective way to significantly increase the square footage of their home without disrupting their existing layout. This approach enhances your living space and adds considerable value to your property.

Accessory Dwelling Unit (ex. Garden Suite)

An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a fantastic way to add value and functionality to your home. ADUs are a self-contained secondary housing unit on a single-family residential lot. They may include garden suites, laneway homes, carriage houses, or garage suites. Many homeowners are drawn to ADUs for their ability to provide additional living space for family members or generate rental income. Interested in exploring this option with our home addition contractors? ADUs are permitted in certain municipalities, so let’s check if it’s a viable choice for your property.

“This was by far the best experience I’ve ever had dealing with construction. Paul and his team were professional, neat, organized and most importantly responsive. They answered every question promptly and thanks to the very handy tool they use to stay on track it ensured we always knew what was coming and what was expected of us. Paul kept us on budget and when we needed to worked with us to find some additional cost savings. Every company out there should be as organized and on track as this team. One building inspector came to our site and said he had never seen a site as clean as this.”
