If a bigger home is something you’ve been thinking about, building a garage with a second-story add-on can be a great option. But let’s say you already have a garage. In this case, adding a room right above it, can still be a clever way to expand. Among the most popular renovation projects, these types of add-ons improve the comfort of your home by increasing your living space.
Among other favored projects that we often work on, there’s:
- Adding another floor or level
- Building extensions such as verandas or solariums
Planning your renovations
It usually takes a few months to plan out all the steps for your construction project. First, you'll need to determine your needs and the relevant work that’ll need to be done. For example, adding a three-season veranda doesn’t require the same work as adding a second floor. Once your project is clearly defined, it’s important to verify regulations that are in effect in your city. You can consult current regulations for the cities of Terrebonne and Mascouche right here. When the time comes, you can request and obtain the necessary building permit.
Once you’re set, consult with a general contractor to help you plan your renovations.
