Frequently Asked Questions

  • Bathroom addition
  • Side house  extensions
  • Loft or attic conversions

How do I prepare my house for an addition?

Depending on the size of your home in Clairemont, and what type of room addition or ADU construction you’ve envisioned, you’ll have to make certain adjustments to your daily routine. Consider moving your family to a hotel, a relative or friend’s place for the duration of the construction.

Also think about the following:

  • If you decide to stay home while the construction takes place, make sure to close off the construction site so that the children and/or pets don’t get injured or interfere with the workers.
  • Let your neighbors know in advance that you’ll be doing work on your property.
  • Make sure to comply with local building codes and regulations.

If you’re unsure of how to prepare for a project of this magnitude, give us a call and get help straight from the experts.

How long does it take to build a second floor addition?

How long your second floor addition takes will depend on a number of factors, including which materials are used, the scope of work, as well as how many workers are on the site. Unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions, on-site injuries and scheduling postponements can delay the completion of the project.

Luckily, we will provide a complementary in-home consultation prior to the start of the project and provide you with an estimated timeframe.

Can I build an ADU myself?

Unless you’re a trained and experienced ADU builder who has access to specialized equipment, you should always leave this task to the professionals in Clairemont. Attempting the DIY route is not only likely to yield sub-par results, but also runs the risk of severe injury and other problems down the road.
