In the heart of the cobbled streets of Quebec, the art of home restoration evolves like a meticulously orchestrated ballet.
The houses, guardians of architectural heritage, are being given a second lease of life through a multitude of renovation projects.
Over the course of a captivating page, we will dive into the world of residential transformations, where three major themes emerge: the elevation of houses towards new horizons with the addition of floors, the expansion of habitable space by daring enlargements and finally, the infinite range of other types of restorations which redefine the limits of possibility.
FOR A HOUSE EXPANSION
An addition is an exciting project that can transform your living space and meet the changing needs of your family. We understand the importance of each step of the extension process and we are here to guide you through all phases of your project.
In this part, we will explore in detail how we carry out a renovation plan for a house, chalet or garage extension, focusing on the operating process, the client's needs, the different expansion options, the cost involved, the additional services offered and the central role of our team of technologists in the completion of your project.
CUSTOMER NEEDS AND INITIAL CONSULTATION
Each extension is unique and meets the specific needs of the client. This is why we start with a thorough initial consultation with the client. This crucial step allows us to understand your needs, preferences and goals for the extension.
Whether you need more space for a growing family, a home work area, a new garage or simply to add functionality to your home, we tailor our approach accordingly.
INQUIRE FROM YOUR MUNICIPALITY
An important step before starting any elevation or widening project is to inquire with the municipality. Each region has its own rules and regulations regarding construction and town planning. For example, did you know that municipalities only authorize a certain percentage of occupancy on the land? In order not to be disappointed, also check the permitted heights, as well as the authorized types of siding.
Once the permits and authorizations necessary to guarantee the legal compliance of your widening or elevation have been obtained, we ensure that the project complies with all construction standards of the city and the building in question. As seen previously, this includes building height regulations, building codes and zoning requirements.
Finally, once the checks have been completed, you can entrust your project to one of our technologists. This step is essential, because in addition to ensuring the harmonious insertion of the addition according to the architecture of your residence, it will determine the technical constraints which will allow a successful arrangement with the existing one. Moreover, the municipality will require a detailed plan of your project before issuing the construction permit.
yes but at what price?
The cost estimate varies depending on various factors such as the size of the extension, materials used, construction work required and the contractor's labor costs. At Plan Maison Québec, we provide quotes with detailed estimates after analyzing your needs and carrying out a thorough evaluation of your property, while ensuring that we offer you the best price for carrying out your extension construction work. It is essential to take into account construction prices, permits and authorizations, as well as any necessary modifications to the existing structure of the house.
For us, our commitment to customer satisfaction is not limited to the physical construction of the expansion. We also offer additional services to make your experience complete and enjoyable. This may include architectural design services to create detailed plans, advice on materials (for walls, windows, flooring, wood, etc.), decoration and interior design advice, as well as recommendations for the contractor or our source of contractors likely to be able to support you in the success of your project.
