Should I Add to My Home?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Much to Spend? The cost of an addition varies widely depending on the project, the builder or architect involved, the materials used, and the location of the renovation. In the Toronto area, most additions can be budgeted in the range of $100-$200 per square foot. However, the type of project factors heavily into this price. Basic jobs like mud and sunrooms, or small bedrooms, tend to be less expensive. The more electrical, plumbing, and fixtures involved, the most expensive the job.

 

Understand Cost Breakdowns - An addition is a significant investment for any homeowner and it is important to understand how your money is going to be allocated prior to undertaking this type of project. First, you will need be prepared to satisfy any municipal building codes and bylaws before construction begins. Most of the time an architectural firm will be employed to provide preliminary drawings for the project that can then be brought to the contractors that Reno Select connects you with. Be prepared for demolition and prep costs, building supports when needed, and the associated costs of labour and materials.

 

Be Prepared for Inconveniences - Additions are often noisy experiences and you will want to be prepared for this accordingly. Be sure to have a full dialogue with any contractor about their expectations for every aspect of the project before any contract is signed. Try to be accommodating and plan for inconveniences contingently.

Home additions are costly, time-intensive tasks that, when executed properly, can hugely increase the value of your home. The decision to add-on has likely crossed the minds of many homeowners, particularly as families grow or homes begin to feel outdated. If you’ve been thinking of that home addition, make sure to keep these key points in mind:
