Construction

When it comes to home additions the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.  Our team has the tools for any size project; whether it means removing the roof and redesigning from the foundation up, transforming existing rooms, or a second-floor addition, we can help. Your needs change over time, and you can rest assured your home has the ability to change along with them.

You may be looking to add a room; from an exercise room to an in-law suite, or just more storage, we can assist you in the planning and execution of the transformation.  Adding space to your existing home is a great way to accommodate your changing needs. Consider the options of extending or adding a room, making your kitchen larger, adding a sun room or greenhouse, or changing a carport into a garage when looking to adapt to your lifestyle.

Second floor additions are also an area our team can handle. They provide an excellent option for expansion in residential communities offering limited room to expand horizontally, changing the feel and usage of the entire house.  We have the know-how to work with you from design to completion, allowing you to relax while your Dreams are Under Construction.

Excavation & Foundations

You may just need a small amount of earth moved, a driveway built, or a building site prepared; no matter the size of the job we have the equipment to complete your excavation.  With a medium sized excavator and bobcat we can handle most smaller, residential projects and we have larger equipment available if necessary.  With years of operating experience we know what it takes to get the job done with as little disruption as possible to the surrounding area.

Foundations are the support system of any building; without a solid foundation you risk dealing with many easily avioded potential problems. Fortunately, our team has the knowledge to not only rectify problems with existing foundations, but create long lasting, solid foundations for new buildings and addition construction.

It’s never a good situation when you have one of the following; cracked foundation, poor moisture barriers, or weeping tile and drainage problems. Any moisture issues or structurally compromised foundations can cause long term damage, so leave it to our team to relieve any stress by correcting these foundation situations.

It will be helpful to declutter, clean, and ensure accessibility to both the interior and exterior areas where the addition is planned, as well as noting any necessary safety precautions that may need to be put in place. If it is a large addition where there will be walls and or roof removed then you will need to plan for an alternate living arrangement for a period of time.
