We prefer to be very frank and forthright with all of our clients about the possible costs of their projects before we even get started.  Simply put, it leads to a higher level of client satisfaction.

While every remodeling project is different, we can help you determine a general budget range for many common projects based on what similar remodeling projects have cost in the past.

However, there are several factors that impact the final cost of any project. Such as; quality of materials, site conditions, accessibility, age of your home, specific design tastes, finishes, updating existing systems, etc.

To assist you in gaining a realistic perspective on budgeting for your project, we highly recommend reviewing Remodeling Magazine’s Cost Vs. Value ReportThis will provide you with valuable information on the average costs of 35 popular remodeling projects in specific regions, as well as the expected return on investment. It will help you make informed decisions and set appropriate budget expectations for your own project.

Single Room Additions
If your home needs a basic room addition, maybe a master bedroom or playroom addition, the single room addition is for you.  A single room addition consists of minimal electrical additions, minimal structural work, no plumbing additions and is an addition on a crawl space foundation.  Typically, a single room addition includes:

Starting at $125 per square foot and up
Multi-Room Additions

Maybe you need to add a nursery and an office or you want a new work-out room and man cave.  A multi-room addition will help you achieve new square footage in your home and will maximize your budget by completing one large home remodel in lieu of multiple smaller projects. A multi-room addition consists of multiple room additions on a crawlspace foundation from the ground up. Typically a multi-room addition includes:

  • Multiple rooms adding square footage to your home.

2nd Story Additions

If your home’s current footprint cannot support an addition. a 2nd story addition may be your best option.  A 2nd story addition involves taking space above another room and converting it into heated, usable space. A typical two-story home addition includes:

Typical Budget Ranges for Garage Additions

Garage additions are a great way to add both utility and lasting long-term value to your property.  In addition to increasing the amount of storage space available on the property, garages can provide additional security and preservation of your cars and other vehicles and, for those homeowners who choose, an additional source of income when building a detached garage with a second story capable of renting.  The return on investment for a garage can be as great as 81% while ensuring your home, while on the market, fetches the most money.

Standard Attached Garage

If you like the idea of pulling into your garage, hopping out, undercover, and walking right into your home an attached garage may be for you.  Attached garages are typically more cost-effective than detached garages as you only require the addition of three new walls.  A typical, 1-car standard, unfinished, attached garage includes:

  • Site preparation to demo, excavate, and ready the ground for new concrete
  • Concrete footings and slab
  • Roof trusses and support beam system to tie into an existing home
  • New roof to match existing as closely as possible
  • Basic vinyl siding to tie into existing
  • 1-2 new windows
  • 1 new exterior door
  • New electrical/lighting layout tied into existing home electrical grid
  • Ventilation for garage space
  • 2 new 9×7 overhead doors with automatic opener

Generally, the more basic the less expensive the cost.  Keep in mind, material selections and interior finishes can cause the per sq foot price to increase. If your electrical, HVAC, or plumbing system requires improvement to meet City/County codes or support the new load from your addition this is not included in the square foot pricing guidelines.  Additionally, site work is not included in the square foot price.  

 

Starting at $75 per square foot and up
Standard Detached Garage

By far the most popular garage style, a detached garage takes advantage of additional space for cars and storage while allowing for a completely unattached, self-contained structure that can provide extra privacy, and minimize the noise from the garage, while maintaining a safe distance from harmful gas emissions or other volatile chemicals you may store in your garage. A typical, 2-car standard, unfinished detached garage includes:

  • Site preparation to demo, excavate, and ready the ground for new concrete
  • Concrete footings and slab to grade
  • Roof trusses and support beam system
  • New roof to match existing as closely as possible
  • Basic vinyl siding
  • 1-2 new windows

  • 2 new 9×7 overhead doors with automatic opener

Generally, the more basic the less expensive the cost.  Keep in mind, material selections and interior finishes can cause the per sq foot price to increase. If your electrical, HVAC, or plumbing system requires improvement to meet City/County codes or support the new load from your addition this is not included in the square foot pricing guidelines.  Additionally, site work is not included in the square foot price.  

 

Starting at $90 per square foot and up

Typical Budget Ranges for Basement, Attic & Carport Remodels

Attics, basements, and carports are built-in spaces in your home that allow for immediate expansion at a relatively economical price tag with a shorter build time, typically.  Attics and basements are easy to transform into a multitude of spaces and provide the flexibility to adapt your current home to your family’s needs without tremendously impacting your day-to-day routine.  And for that outdoor expansion, a simple carport can provide security for your cars and other vehicles while providing a space for your family to convene outdoors while still being covered.

Standard Basement Remodel

Basements can provide some nice living space, relatively economically, when compared to an addition or adding another level. We can transform your basement into just about any space you desire.  The three main things to consider are adequate headroom, moisture control, and egress.  Typically, a standard basement remodel includes:

  • Interior framing to create spaces that are differentiated
  • 3-piece bathroom with new plumbing layout and basic fixtures
  •  New electrical layout throughout the space
  • Standard kitchen with semi-custom cabinets, laminate tops, and basic appliances
  • Tie in to the existing HVAC system
  • Standard ceiling grid and tiles
  • Basic click-lock flooring or carpet

Generally, the more basic the less expensive the cost.  Keep in mind, if your current HVAC system will not support the additional load, there is a lot of concrete work to be performed, there is a head height issue or an egress code issue the cost can increase significantly.

 

Starting at $70 per square foot and up
Standard Attic Remodel

Attic remodels are another cost-effective way to add additional living space to your home.  We can transform your attic into the man (or woman) cave of your dreams or give your kids a study away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day living.  Adding skylights or dormers can make the space feel larger and brighter. A typical standard attic remodel includes:

  • Additional framing (occasionally)
  • New insulation throughout the space
  • New electrical/lighting layout
  • Tie in to the existing system to accommodate the new load
  • Adding 1-2 skylights
  • New sheetrock on the walls and ceilings
  • Basic click-lock flooring or carpet
  • New standard trim
  • New paint
Starting at $45 per square foot and up
Standard Carport Addition

A carport can be a great way to extend covered areas outdoors without the expense of a new garage.  Carports can be very basic or extremely intricate.  Regardless, all carports require careful design in order to maintain structural integrity and still look like they belong to the house.  Typically, a standard carport addition will include:

  • New concrete footings for carport support
  • New decorative columns and structural beams to support the load
  • New roof that matches the pitch and look of the current roof
  • Tie-In to existing structure replacing components (siding, brick) removed to match the existing home
  • New soffit and fascia
  • 1-3 new electrical fixtures
  • Decorative ceiling covering (like architectural soffit)
  • New paint
Starting at $12,000 and up

Typical Budget Ranges for Home Exterior Projects

Don’t forget about beautifying the outside of your home.  Whether you are looking to improve your outdoor enjoyment by building a front porch made for years of rocking chair sitting, a deck for the barbecue aficionado in your family, or a covered outdoor oasis to relax regardless of the weather, improving the curb appeal of your home will give you lasting enjoyment and a great return on your investment for future buyers.

Decks

There’s nothing like having a great deck to enjoy relaxing and entertaining outdoors.  With so many materials to choose from, the options are endless.  While most decks are constructed using pressure-treated yellow pine a lot of our clients are choosing to install composite decks like Trex.  Pressure-treated pine will stand up well to the weather but will require regular maintenance and eventually will need to be replaced.  Composite decks require infrequent maintenance and will stand up to the weather very well.  A typical pressure-treated deck will include:

  • Footings for all posts installed 12″ below grade
  • Pressure-treated yellow pine lumber and decking boards
  • Standard single or two levels
  • New standard pickets around the perimeter
  • Flashing to properly attach the deck to a home
  • Lattice finishing
  • Standard stairs

Composite materials can considerably increase the price but will reduce the life-long cost associated with the standard lumber decks. 

 

Starting at $20 per square foot and up
Front Porch

A front porch update can totally transform your home’s exterior. Similar to a deck, a front porch can extend your living space to relax, play and enjoy the outdoors. From covered, to columned, to enclosed porches the ability to customize the space to add to the aesthetics of your home is endless.  A typical front porch addition will include:

  • Footings, below the frost line
  • 2-3 new posts or columns
  • New flooring framing
  • New roof line to match existing home as closely as possible
  • New roof covering to match existing home as closely as possible
  • New pressure-treated yellow pine decking
  • New standard pickets around the perimeter
  • Beaded ceiling
  • 1-2 new lighting fixtures
  • Lattice finishing
  • Standard stairs
  • New paint
Starting at $100 per square foot and up
Rain-Out Louvered Roofs

Want a covered space to enjoy your front porch or deck virtually any time you want but you don’t want to lose that precious sunlight? Check out our louvered roof systems from our partners at Sundance.

A louvered roof system is a type of outdoor patio or deck covering that opens and closes with the push of a button.  When the louvers are closed they route water into the built-in gutters and when open they allow any amount of sunlight or shade that you desire.  With a flat tongue-and-groove style ceiling, large volume gutters with 2 levels of LED light shelves for ambient and functional lighting, and engineered louvered systems to support the largest span, snow, and rain load available in louvered roof systems, the Sundance Louvered Roof System gives you the option to sit outdoors in the rain or snow while allowing unlimited sunshine during the summer.  A typical louvered roof system includes:

  • 6×6 heavy-duty aluminum posts, which also serve as downspouts for a seamless look.
  • 2×8 heavy-duty aluminum beams for the longest engineered span available between posts
  • Large volume gutters with 2 levels of LED light shelves for maximum lighting functionality
  • Gutter screens to ensure clog-free gutters
  • Double-skin insulated louvers to reduce heat transfer below the cover
  • Beautiful flat, tongue-and-groove style finished patio ceiling when the louvers are closed.
  • Weather stripping to ensure water-tight application and quieter operation when closing louvers
  • Ball bearing rotation mechanisms for low friction, which allows 1 motor to operate larger square footage of louvers.
  • Waterproof motor for use in any climate with the ability to open or close your roof from anywhere with a click of your smartphone or computer.
