Additions may involve extending the footprint of your home or adding another story to the existing structure.

Michael De Jong Homes has more than 20 years of experience in high-quality, custom renovations designed to suit each client’s lifestyle and budget.

Owners of older homes in established neighborhoods usually love the character and location of their homes, but often need more space for a growing family or busy lifestyle. By expanding your home with a quality addition, you can create the space you need while maintaining the character of your home and remaining in the neighborhood you love. Additions can also greatly enhance the resale value of your home.

New additions may involve extending the footprint of your home or adding another story to the existing structure. Additions can include more bedrooms and baths, an expanded kitchen and family room, a home office, new utility rooms or all of the above.

In designing and building additions, care must be taken to tie seamlessly into the existing structure both on the interior and exterior of your home. The architectural style of a home must be considered in the design and build. For example, rooflines must match the existing style­–whether it be gabled, gambrel, mansard or hipped–while still providing adequate drainage. The home site must also be considered. For example, additions may affect the location of a driveway or walkway as well as the site drainage pattern. When exterior makeovers are done well, you gain enjoyment of an aesthetically pleasing home, pride in having the “nicest home on the block” and a higher return on your investment.

Using an experienced builder for your new addition can help preserve the integrity and charm of your home while providing functional, aesthetically pleasing new space that you will enjoy for years to come. Michael De Jong Homes has the design capabilities and experience to help you realize the benefits of a well-done addition and exterior makeover.
