Basic Room Addition Costs

Are you an Ottawa homeowner in need of some extra space? Maybe you just had a child and need another bedroom. Packing up and moving to a new home is expensive and cumbersome. Not only that but buying a new home just for an extra room is a huge step.

Finished Basement Costs

If you have an unfinished basement in Ottawa, it’s time to change that. Keeping your basement incomplete is effectively wasting an entire room of your home. Sadly, basements are often the most underutilized room in many homes. We specialize in finishing basements at RenosGroup, so don’t wait to give us a call if you want to spruce things up. Beyond finishing your basement, we can also help you renovate and repurpose it.

There are lots of benefits involved with finishing your basement. These include:

  • Increased energy efficiency. If your basement isn’t finished, then it’s not insulated. As a result, cold and hot air escapes, making it harder to maintain the temperature in your home. Finishing the basement will insulate it, saving you money on your energy bill.

  • Increased value to your home. Finishing your basement can provide a 70% ROI due to the value it adds to your home. If you plan on selling your home in Ottawa, you owe it to yourself to hire us to finish the basement. A finished basement is often high on homebuyers’ wishlists. That can not only help your home sell for more but also faster.

  • Added versatility. You can use it as a bonus room when you stop neglecting your basement. We encourage homeowners to turn their basement into a room they wish they had. For example, do you want a home gym or hobby room? Then your basement is a perfect fit, but you need to finish it first!

Here’s an overview of what you can expect to pay for a finished basement:

  • $30,000 – $80,000 + HST for a basement 700-1,000 SF in length
  • $45-$85 per square foot
  • Lower square footage price includes basic finishes
  • Higher square footage price includes higher-end finishes & full bathroom

Kitchen/Bathroom & Multi-Room Addition Costs

For homeowners wanting larger kitchens or bathrooms, we don’t disappoint at RenosGroup. We can add to your current kitchens and bathrooms or build new ones from scratch. Also, if you need to add multiple bedrooms to your Ottawa home, you can count on us. We do closets, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and more.

With our skilled team on your side, you’ll never have to settle for a subpar kitchen or bathroom.

 Do you wish you had an island or an extra area for a pizza oven? Would you love to add a bathroom to the first floor for your guests? It would be best if you reached out to us for a free in-home consultation today.

Full-Height Basement Foundation Costs

5 Different Types of Home Additions

If you and your family are quickly outgrowing your current home, chances are you might be considering a move. But there’s also another option to consider if you love your home and neighbourhood, and would rather avoid the daunting moving process. Creating a new addition to your home could be a better solution that provides the extra square footage you need without having to relocate. Whether you need more room in the kitchen, another bathroom or even a second story, our team can work with you to find a home renovation that makes sense. To help you get inspired, here are a few different types of home additions that are most common among homeowners today.


A Four Season Sunroom

Sunrooms are becoming increasingly popular as home additions because they give homeowners a place to relax and enjoy the view of the outdoors while remaining warm and cozy year-round. This supplemental living area is designed as a separate section that is segregated from the main interior. It typically includes thermal-resistant windows to maximize the natural light while maintaining a comfortable temperature. 


A Bump Out

If you just need a few extra square feet instead of a full-blown home addition, then a bump out is a good option to think about.
A bump out will coincide with your home’s current layout, and is meant to simply expand your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room or whichever area needs an extension. This is a route worth taking if your budget is tight and you just want to enhance an area rather than take on a larger and complete home addition renovation.


Additional Room Over the Garage

Are you looking for a way to bring in additional income each month? If so, you could consider adding a rental unit on top of the garage. This type of project can require drywalling, plumbing, and insulation. But it can be well worth it once you’re able to rent it out and have extra, steady income flowing in.


A Second Story

Though it may seem daunting to even think about adding a second story to your home, it does have its advantages! If you need more space in your home but really dread the thought of moving, adding a second story might make more sense for you. This is a common addition for homeowners who really love their current location, have a good network established in their community and are close to family. By doubling the square footage, you will have lots of options on how to utilize it best for your needs and family. This type of project can be complex which is why you’ll need to consult with a qualified contractor to determine if it’s feasible for your property.


Additional Bathroom

Sharing one bathroom for a family of four can be a nightmare scenario, which is why bathroom additions are also popular reno projects. Your contractor will take a look at your home to see if it’s possible to install a new bathroom. In some cases, this might mean sacrificing some storage space or even a closet.

There are numerous types of home additions that can enhance your current home and give you all of the extra space you need to live comfortably. If you’re interested in learning more about your options and how this can work for your property, contact our team in Ottawa. We have helped many homeowners across the city transform their property with home additions that accommodate their needs, and we can do the same for you.

4 Most Popular Home Additions

Just because you’re in the midst of change – maybe it’s a baby, maybe your kid is coming back from college, or maybe you need to keep an eye on your aging parents – it doesn’t mean that you have to start house hunting. More and more people are realizing that by staying put and instead, creating an additional space in their current home, they can save money, have more room and still enjoy their own neighbourhood and the home that they’ve worked hard at creating over the years.  Whether you need the extra space or simply want it for a home improvement upgrade, here are a few of the most popular home additions that might provide you with the inspiration that you’ve been waiting for.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is the focal point in just about any home. It’s also one of the best upgrades you can invest in that can provide a solid ROI in the future if you ever do plan to sell. If you’re interested in opening up your kitchen space, take comfort in knowing that it’s an investment worth making.

The Bathroom

Aside from the bathroom also being one of the most used rooms and profitable areas to upgrade, it can also be one of the most necessary ones. If you have other family members staying with you and only one bathroom to share, this can quickly turn a living situation into an uncomfortable nightmare. With a great ROI and an even greater reason to build – you can’t go wrong with this one.

The Bedroom

If you’re expecting a baby, or if your kid is all grown up and moving back home from college then an extension to a bedroom might be necessary. Plus, this is always great for family or guests when they need a place to stay during the holidays or special occasions. Aside from the bedroom, you can even upgrade your master suite and create that luxury bedroom that you’ve always dreamed of.

Second or Third Storey

If you’re really keen on having more room, but are set on staying, adding on a second or third storey can still be well worth the investment rather than engaging in the process of moving. And with an average ROI that’s around 70 percent, you can create that additional income suite or even a den for the kids to enjoy knowing that’s it’s a worthy investment.

You don’t have to consider moving when you’re in need of more space. If you’re attached to your current home and neighbourhood, then why not consider a home addition instead? You can avoid the hassle of moving, increase the value of your home, save money in the long run, and create the home of dreams.  Contact us, or give us a call at (613)727-9427

5 Home Renovations and Additions That Add the Most Value

Ottawa homeowners plan renovations and additions to address their changing lifestyle or family needs. However, improving the resale value of the home should also be a consideration. Here are five home renovation and additions that add the most value to the home:

Kitchen Renovation

According to HGTV, homeowners can expect to recoup between 60 to 120% of the cost of the kitchen renovation when it comes time to sell. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and no one wants to see an outdated kitchen with linoleum countertops, scuffed flooring, and appliances that could break down at any minute. A kitchen remodel can be as simple as replacing hardware, upgrading to energy-efficient appliances, and giving cabinets and walls a fresh coat of paint. Of course, a fully upgraded kitchen renovation from a trusted Ottawa contractor like would wow potential buyers and add a lot of value to your home.

Bathroom Remodel or Addition

Bathroom additions pay back 80% to 130% of their cost when it comes time to sell the home. Nobody wants to walk into a humid and cramped bathroom that hasn’t been upgraded in thirty years. Whether you are updating the family bathroom, creating a stunning master bedroom, or adding a powder room on the main floor, all of these upgrades pay off when it’s time to sell. Home buyers expect to have at least two bathrooms in a home, and a master bathroom is always a desired bonus.

Finished Basement

Homeowners can expect to recoup 70 to 80% of the cost of a finished basement renovation. Don’t turn off home buyers with a perfect home that has an unfinished basement. Your basement can house a media room, guest bedroom, kid’s play area, exercise room, laundry room, or even an income suite.

Deck Addition

Remember, the value of your property extends beyond the home itself. Upgrade your outdoor space with a deck addition, which returns 65 to 95% on investment. Enjoy some much-needed rest and relaxation with an outdoor kitchen, built-in seating, outdoor dining area, and more. When it’s time to sell, you’ll be glad you made the upgrade.

Full Home Addition

Sometimes, space is the biggest problem of all. The return on investment will vary depending on the size and function of the full home addition. Create a master suite, in-law suite, great room, or transform the layout of your home with the extra space.
