We Plan Your Home Addition Project
While building an addition for your home can take up to a year, our professional project managers will set up a clear plan to help our builders do their job faster, easier and more efficiently to deliver your dream home.
Here is the process we generally follow:
Step One: We Obtain a Building Permit
When it comes to house additions and renovations, one of the most challenging things for homeowners is to obtain building permits.
At First Canadian Construction Co., we help our clients to get their required permits and follow the building codes to provide a smooth and legal construction project.
However, some homeowners may want to obtain permits themselves.
Here is a tip for you if you are one of those homeowners in Toronto:
the best time to submit your building permit application is generally in January since it often takes about 2 to 4 weeks to approve it. Additionally, we will avoid weather disruptions during your home addition process.
Step Two: We Help You Know Your Budget
Determining your budget is the first and most important thing to consider before hiring a home addition company. However, this can be a daunting task.
So, to help you determine your budget, we offer free estimates for our home addition services by showing you your best and most affordable options.
Step Three: We Start Your Home Addition Process
After helping you have a clear budget for your home addition project, we will start the process if you choose us as your contractor and home builders.
Our Home Addition Service Process
1: Choose the Design and Materials
After obtaining permits, our designers will help you decide what your dream house will look like after our house addition services. As soon as you choose the design, we will show you the materials equivalent to your budget to help you decide the most suitable ones for your taste.
2: Build Your Addition’s Foundation
Now that we know your preferences, we start the project by building the foundation. This stage involves pouring concrete or excavating a slab for the crawlspace. Then we will add the flooring and the main walls.
3: We Frame the Structure
After finishing your addition’s foundation, we will frame the walls and roof within a day or two and then continue to the next phase of our process ASAP.
4: Add the Required Roofing
Our experienced team of builders will add roofing to your addition to create efficient weather-proofing for your home addition.
5: Install Doors and Windows
In this phase, we will make your structure “dried-in” or more weather tight by installing the highest quality doors and windows that you choose in the first step.
6: We Install Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC Systems
First Canadian Construction Co. is a general contractor for building and renovating homes in Toronto, meaning that our home addition services include plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems installation. Our plumbers and electricians complete this stage by installing every required pipe, ductwork and electrical wire when the ceilings, flooring and walls are in their raw frame condition.
7: We Add Standard Insulation Systems
In this phase, we will show you various insulation options, such as standard fibreglass batts and sprayed foams and tell you all the details to help you choose the one that will fit the best to your project.
After you choose your insulation system, we will install it. This is when your project will start looking like the structure you saw in the design stage.
8: Finish Your Home Addition’s Interior
This stage is about dreams coming true. Our builders install the cabinetry, and flooring, paint the walls and ceilings and make your breath life to your dream home.
9: Inspect Your Project
After we finish your project and complete the landscaping, your project manager will show you the results. As soon as we ensure you are happy and satisfied with your new home addition, we will leave your home and embrace our triumph.
Types of Additions We Offer for Toronto Homes
There are many ways we can add extra space to your home. However, the most demanding types of home additions in Toronto are the following:
Second Story Additions
Also known as 2nd-floor addition, top-up addition, and building up is when you want us to add a story to your house.
We offer this type of home addition in two ways:
- The first way involves tearing off the roof of the main floor and installing a new one to build a second story from scratch.
- The second one involves temporarily removing the roof of your main floor to add a new story and then putting the old roofing system back in place.
Bump-Out or Side Additions
Bump-out or side additions, also known as building out, is when you want us to add extra space to your home horizontally.
This means we will install a new foundation in order to build your desired addition.
Bump-out home additions are the least disruptive ones to your existing living space. However, you need to have a yard for side additions.
Moreover, the addition should align with Toronto’s construction requirements regarding space between your and your neighbor’s property.
If you want garage additions, we can offer you two options:
- Detached Garage
- Attached Garage
Adding a garage is a perfect way of increasing storage space, and it can be an ideal investment if you choose to use it as an extra living space.
Additionally, we offer garage top-up additions, which can also be a good choice for adding a living area to your home.
