Are you considering one
of these home additions?

Second Storey Additions Calgary

Second storey additions

Adding a second storey to a single-storey property can truly transform it. It’s like getting a new home in the same great location.

This solution is ideal for growing families who need extra space and who love their neighbourhood – maybe with the kids happily set in the local school.

You can add new bedrooms, more living space, new bathrooms, and so on. You achieve the additional space, functionality and value of the home addition without any effect on the yard or garden space, which is prized by so many Calgary homeowners.

Basement Additions Calgary

Basement additions

Have you always wanted that basement movie room for you and the family to enjoy with a bucket of popcorn?

Maybe a games room or even a spare bedroom in the basement – or maybe simply more storage space?

The options of adding a basement to your home can present a real lifestyle boost and/or bring much-needed practical benefits – it’s up to you.

Sunroom Additions in Calgary

Sunroom additions

Sunrooms bring warmth and light into Calgary homes, which is often very welcome in the midst of our long winters.

In spring, summer and autumn too, sunrooms are the place to sit back, relax, and contemplate the better things in life while enjoying the views.

If you prefer to do more with your sunroom, why not use it as an office or entertainment area or a dining area for dinner parties?

The good news is sunroom additions are generally cheaper alternatives to standard room additions as they need shallow foundations (similar to a garage).

Garage Additions in Calgary

Garage additions

Adding a garage to your Calgary home can bring many practical benefits.

Obviously, it’s a place to keep the car safe and in pristine condition but it can also provide much-needed storage space for items that are just gathering dust around the home.

Some garages also serve as workshops for creative minds or DIY enthusiasts.

Other new living spaces

Other new living spaces

Your home addition doesn’t have to be a major project like a whole new storey or basement.

Perhaps you want to add a room above the garage to act as a study or home office? Most of us have had to get used to the idea of working from home at some point in the last few years.

Do you need to convert an existing space into a guest bedroom or extend the kitchen or a bathroom? If you need more storage room inside your home, you might want a new closet or consider a laundry room to free up space.

At Transform Renovations & Custom Homes, every project is treated on its merits. We’ll listen to what you want to achieve and then advise on your options.

What do you need to know before adding to your home?

You’ll likely have plenty of questions before you go ahead with a new home addition. Here are some of the questions you might want to ask your contractor:

  • How long will a home addition take?

    A new bathroom might take a matter of weeks to complete but a second storey addition will take months.

    Your contractor should be able to provide a general timeline based on similar projects so that you can start planning for a convenient timeslot.

  • Do you need a permit for home additions?

    Most home additions in Calgary require a building permit or “building safety approval”.

    You may also require planning approval (a development permit) depending on the size and location of the addition/home.

    For some additions, there is also the requirement for a City of Calgary development completion inspection to be conducted after the work is done.

  • How much does a home addition permit cost and can you get it for me?

    Building safety approval currently costs $345.28- $1364.48 in Calgary, depending on the size of the addition. The lower fees apply to an addition of 400 square feet or less.

    Planning approval currently costs $192 – $621. Development completion inspections are charged at $163.

    The relevant permits and inspections are quite easy to arrange. We will help you obtain what you need and advise you on what will pass and what could be problematic for permits, based on prior experience.

  • How much will the total project cost?

    We can usually provide an accurate quotation for the project once we meet with you, discuss your ideas, and formulate a proposal for the work.

    As part of the service we provide, we will advise you on how to achieve the look you want within your budget – and will tell you if that budget is unrealistic.
