Home additions are intrusive projects so hiring a contractor is an important decision. It is essential to hire a contractor who is empathetic to the stress that home additions put on a household. Changing the flow, function or size of a home can significantly alter the living experience, both at the individual and familial levels.
Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that sees the value in understanding a prospective client’s lifestyle, health issues, family growth plans, age and work habits. Often people remodel their homes without considering anything beyond aesthetic appeal, the addition or expansion of rooms. This is a mistake in that it does not address how people intend to enjoy their home.
Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that believes home additions must address the unique needs of each client. Through a conversation with the client, an assessment is made about what is expected out of home additions.
The creative direction, cost, and time of home additions are things that are influenced by a number of different factors. One such factor is how long a client plans to remain in the home. Whether it is ten years, twenty years, or a lifetime, the amount of time a client intends to stay in their home has certain implications.
If it is short term, it may be in the best interest of the client to refrain from making substantial changes, but for clients who plan on living in their home for many years it is wise to make sure that their home remains conducive as they and their family evolves. This is what sets Northgate Construction Inc. apart from other contracting companies. Northgate Construction asks the proper questions to ensure that clients feel good about home additions.
Another factor that influences home additions is determining the quality of life issues that make the prospect of remaining in the home appealing. This becomes relevant the longer an individual or family has lived in the home and if they have become ensconced within the surrounding neighbourhood and community. Home additions, although a source of personal and financial stress, can save an individual or family the strain of uprooting their life and moving to a different home. It is the goal of Northgate Construction Inc. to create a space that will satisfy clients and keep them in their home for years to come.
This is especially true when health and physical needs must be addressed. Age and physical challenges are determinants on the direction of home additions because they must be able to accommodate these challenges while meeting artistic expectations. Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that understands the importance of bridging the gap between functionality and aestheticism.
While age and physical challenges certainly dictate the direction of home additions, family dynamics play a major role in the flow of a home. As such, knowing how a family spends their time and where time is predominantly spent in the home is critical when choosing to remodel. Northgate Construction Inc. understands that a small alteration in a family dynamic can create a stressful environment. As such, it is the goal of Northgate Construction Inc. to create a space that amplifies the family dynamic and enjoyment of a home rather than undermine and detract from it. This is achieved by providing proper guidance to clients unfamiliar with the home renovation process.
Northgate Construction Inc. has an outstanding track record as Burlington contractors, and has a wide range of experience in designing and building home additions. More specifically, Northgate Construction Inc. has ample experience with home additions that include, but are not limited to, sunroom, mudroom, and garage additions.
Garage additions serve a greater purpose than simply a storage space or shelter for a car. They are a massive part of the aesthetic appeal of a home, and in some cases, are the most prominent external features to a home, eclipsing both windows and roofing. Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that helps clients to make informed choices about new garage additions.
It is not uncommon for temperatures inside residential garages to fluctuate between freezing and sweltering throughout the year. As such, it is important to consider what implications this will have on new garage additions. One such implication is the effect garage additions will have on adjoining living spaces. The transfer of heat in the summer months or cold in the winter months can be problematic in that a poorly insulated, attached garage, can negatively affect the temperature of an otherwise well-built home. Northgate Construction Inc. is well aware of such risks and looks to avoid them, and save you money.
A garage extension has multiple benefits including, but not limited to, additional car and household storage space, contributes to ongoing car maintenance, and can serve as a sheltered workspace year-round. Moreover, a well-constructed garage extension can easily be converted into usable living space as needed. Northgate Construction Inc. is a reputable contracting company that can help clients apply for building permits, and ensure that a garage extension conforms to all building codes.
A mudroom addition is quite possibly the most functional and practical home extension. A mudroom is, a casual, secondary entryway wherein people remove, and store footwear, outerwear, and wet clothing. Typically, a mudroom addition utilizes durable and easy-to-clean materials such as linoleum or tile flooring to minimize dirt collection. Ultimately, a mudroom addition serves to improve the overall cleanliness of a home. In this sense, a mudroom addition is the ideal transition space between indoor and outdoor areas.
A mudroom addition is not usually near the primary entrance of a home, but they do become a frequent entranceway for members of the household. However, homeowners should not let a mudroom become a chaotic catchall for dirty clothing, it is imperative that a mudroom addition be furnished with hooks, racks, benches, cubbies, closets, and even a sink. All of these measures are in place to ensure that a mudroom addition fulfills the day-to-day needs of a household.
Since a mudroom bridges the indoor space with the outdoor space it entails constructing a home extension. A contracting company can ensure that this home extension conforms to all local building codes. Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that can design and build a mudroom addition that is organized, efficient, easy-to-clean and, most of all, aesthetically pleasing.
Of all the house additions someone could build, none are quite as appealing as a sunroom. Traditionally, sunrooms were glassed-in porches, but over the years they have evolved into full-fledged year-round rooms. In other words, while sunroom additions are characterized by vast amounts of glass, they have become much more conducive for daily use.
Four season room additions are appealing because they bring the beauty of the outdoors inside without pesky bugs or poor weather conditions. It is for this reason that sunroom additions usually become the favourite room and feature in a home. Sunroom additions have come a long way in that they are comprised of high end finishing’s and features such as cathedral ceilings, skylights, energy-efficient windows, tile flooring, and even heat and air conditioning.
Northgate Construction Inc. is a contracting company that can design and build sunroom additions that quickly become preferred spaces for activities such as dining, family events, and relaxation. Northgate Construction Inc. can provide an estimate to clients seeking any style of house additions.
