A home addition may be the biggest renovation challenge you will face. Horizon has more than 25 years experience building additions in Victoria BC.
If you’ve outgrown your home but don’t want to move from your Victoria community, a home addition could be the perfect solution. Not only will it expand your living space, it may also add to your home’s resale value. But a home addition is a major renovation that poses unique challenges that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
A home addition isn’t like any other renovation. It requires expansion of the foundation and structure of your home, which means a significant investment. While an addition might make sense if you live in a neighbourhood with predominantly older homes on large lots, it could backfire if you live on a smaller lot. Furthermore, it’s not uncommon for some greater Victoria building authorities to deny your permit based on zoning or site limitations. Horizon can help you determine the cost of your home addition — before you start designing one that will never get off the ground.
Will your home addition look like one? The best additions are invisible to the naked eye. You accomplish this by paying tribute to your home’s architectural features without compromising on modern building practices. The result is a dormer that looks original, a master bathroom extension that feels authentic, a secondary suite that blends seamlessly with the rest of the home. Not everyone has the skill or experience to pull this off. Horizon has done it successfully for hundreds of clients.
We take pride in helping you make balanced choices at every step of the building process. For example, we’ll show you how incorporating green building practices and energy efficient heating and cooling systems will actually improve your comfort, save energy costs, and protect your family’s health. Its just one more way Horizon adds value.
