We’ll Bring Your Ideas to Life
Home additions are one of the most exciting remodeling projects that transform the home by making it more functional. Sometimes homeowners have specific ideas for the type of addition they want, and other times they just know they need more space but are not sure about the other details. Whichever category you fall into, you can trust in the home addition experts at Gerety Building & Restoration to bring your home addition ideas from concept to reality.
With over 35 years of remodeling and home addition experience, Gerety can answer any questions you have about design including what type of addition would work best for your home, where it should be placed, and how it should be connected with the rest of the home to create a room that looks like it’s always been part of the house. Our projects are achieved using a unique project delivery method called design-build.
Design-build is a way to execute home addition projects successfully and with precision. It involves all team members working together to design and build the home addition.
In other delivery styles, the home addition is first designed by an architect or designer, then contractors are asked to bid on that design and one is chosen to build it. On the other hand, design-build allows all team members – architects, designers and contractors – to work together in a unified process. For example, contractors can inform the architect whether the design is feasible and designers can take the design beyond function to make it beautiful and unique. Design-build means you have a whole team of experts working together to create the perfect addition for your home.
Gerety Building & Restoration has team members in architecture, interior design and building & contracting, and we are proud to use the design-build project delivery style. You can get more information about design-build here.
How Much Will a Home Addition Cost?
Homeowners often ask for a ballpark figure on how much a home addition costs. However, every project is different, so Gerety (nor any other building contractor) can give an accurate estimate without knowing the specifics of your project. Some things that impact cost are:
- The type of home addition room you want to add.
- The square footage of the room.
- The amount and type of materials, including windows, light switches, electrical outlets and siding for the outside.
- Any unique customizations you want, such as custom cabinetry or radiant heat flooring.
We offer free consultations so we can discuss your project and give you a more accurate estimate.
