Whole Home Renovations

Love your area and community but feel your home doesn’t match your lifestyle? No matter what era in which homes were built, they were constructed to reflect the way people used space at the time of the previous homeowners. Typically, older homes have many small rooms and lack the large open spaces clients and families like you are looking for.

Our combined design + build services offer a one stop shop for all of your project needs. Whether your whole home renovation is weighted towards an aesthetic makeover, reallocation of space to fit your activities, or reducing the environmental footprint with sustainable technologies, we’re here to help. Our 35 years in the business and a strong and experienced team have worked on almost every type of home in London and can make the most of your project.

Additions

When considering an Addition to your home, you are likely limited in living space for your growing family, or the existing areas of the home are inflexible to renovating to suit your needs (load bearing walls, etc). Adding the space you require will allow you to remain in the home and community you love, and alleviate the cost and need to move to a new larger home. It is typically cheaper to build an addition than to buy a new home that equals the space of your existing house plus addition. At the very least, the closing costs involved with selling your old house and buying the new house would push this option over the top.

The most powerful aspect of an Addition is you have freedom to design the environment you’ve been dreaming of. Additions can be built to accommodate a first floor master suite, a second story in-law suite, mudroom, or a larger kitchen. Our integrated design + build services allow us to build a project with you right from the initial napkin sketches to a finished reality. We have a team of experts to match your home’s brick, paint colours, and/or historical architectural details for a seamless finished product.

Kitchen Renovations

The kitchen is the heart of your home, the hub, and the family meeting ground. It is also your core entertaining space as everybody loves to congregate in the kitchen! A successful kitchen renovation project will incorporate you, your lifestyle, your family and your activities.

Whether your kitchen renovation includes removing walls to open up the space, adding more windows to increase natural light levels, or building a pantry in addition to your new cabinets, we can help. We listen carefully to how you move through the space, cook, bring in groceries, all to understand how to make your Kitchen the most efficient space for you.

Kitchen renovations are a great way to add value to your home and one of the key areas future buyers of your home will evaluate. Our experience and in-house design will provide you with insight into obtaining the highest return for your investment.

Bathroom Renovations

You may be unsatisfied with your bathroom’s current layout, fixtures, or finishes. Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is the most used room in the house. It’s the room that is used by all members of the household and your guests. It is the first room you typically start your day in and the last one before you go to bed.

Whether your bathroom is too small, doesn’t satisfy you aesthetically, or needs to be updated to your current physical abilities, a bathroom renovation is the solution. It’s amazing how a new layout and finishes can breathe live into a space you spend so much time in. Not to mention additions like grab bars and zero threshold showers will allow you to stay in your home well into the future.

In addition to kitchens, a bathroom renovation is a great way to add value to your home and one of the key areas future buyers of your home will evaluate. Our experience will provide you with insight into obtaining the highest return for your investment.

Basements

From dark and dated to bright and modern, basement renovations can be simple and a great way to maximize the usable space within your home. Larger and more energy-efficient windows can be added to bring in more light, the height of your basement can be made taller with underpinning, or specialized spaces like entertainment or games rooms can be built.

There are also ways we can condense your mechanical (furnace) room to create more space, or increase the laundry area for better utility, The sky is the limit! With a little (or a lot of work), your basement might turn into the most used space in your entire home.

Historical Restorations

Our team are experts at rebuilding and restoring old homes. Sometimes the restorations are as simple as fixing rotten columns, or as dramatic as full-facade rebuilds. We also specialize in restoring and recreating interior elements such as wood trim, plaster details, and matching paint existing colours and wood finishes.

We have worked to restore homes in London as old as 1885, and always look forward to the challenge. If we can’t perform all of the work in-house, we have a team of specialized wood workers and painters that work along side our carpenters to bring your home back to life.

Cottages

We offer a range of different services when tackling your cottage. We have built several full restorations from the ground up and many smaller projects like kitchen and bath renovations.

We have the equipment and vehicles to access difficult properties, and have completed projects in many lakeside Ontario areas.

Perhaps you are looking to winterize your cottage or add on to it for a growing family? Our design + build services are the same for cottages as they would be for your home. Also, if you live far away from your cottage we have the ability to send you daily photos of progress so you can feel connected with the process. We’re here to help.

Green Roofs

As the leading design + build company in London, adding green roofs to our services provides one more option to clients wanting to “go greener”. Green roofs are an excellent way to reduce storm water run-off, raise the insulation factor of your roof (which in turn lowers your energy bill), extend the lifespan or your roofing material by protecting it from damaging UV, reduce storm water runoff, clean the air and produce oxygen, and it looks great!

We are one of 40 certified installers in Ontario, and the pre-vegetated modules are grown right outside London in Strathroy. Once we have assessed the environmental conditions of your site, we can design the layout and have a certified grower select the plant mixes for your roof. The experienced grower in Strathroy pre-plants the modules with your objectives in mind; beautiful and colourful year round, carefree for minimal maintenance required, and expected to live indefinitely.
