    The workers always showed up on time. Work is only allowed within certain hours and certain days in my condo building and the crew worked within these limits. They cleaned up at the end of each day and the project was completed on schedule. It was a very pleasant experience.

Lakewood Home & Room Additions

No Lakewood, CA homeowner ever said I could use less space. Taking that notion to heart, home addition contractors are getting call after call to add one more bedroom, a garage, a porch or even, a full kitchen. These projects are expensive, as one would expect, but they pay off tremendously, both in personal use and resale value.

Continue reading to see how you can find the best room addition contractors in Lakewood. As always, when you’re ready to hire, use ImproveNet to connect with two or three remodeling addition contractors in Lakewood today.

Common Home & Room Additions In Lakewood

Believe it or not, you can add any room you can think of. From laundry rooms to bathrooms, if you have the money and the wherewithal to undertake a home addition, you can make your dream home reality. To get a better idea of the possibilities, see the most common Lakewood room additions below:

  • Bathroom
  • Kitchen
  • Bedroom(s)
  • Garage Or Workshop
  • Living Or Family Room
  • Laundry Room
  • Basement
  • Office(s)
  • Common Area(s)
  • California Room
  • Deck/Porch
  • Patio or Sunroom
  • Bump Out or Micro-Addition

What Makes A Good Addition Contractor

Any home addition is no small task. It takes coordination, organization, versatility and patience to get any Lakewood addition completed successfully.

More often than not, you’ll have to hire a general contractor in Lakewood and they will hire subcontractors to complete various parts of the addition. For example, if you’re bumping out your home and remodeling your kitchen, you’ll most likely need an electrician, plumber and a general contractor. The general contractor or project manager should oversee the entire project. They do it all from ordering supplies, keeping guys on time, staying under budget and of course, updating you along the way. As you can see, they have a lot of responsibility.

Therefore, to help you find the best home addition contractor in Lakewood, look for the following traits as you interview three or four potential general contractors.

  1. Expertise: While they don’t focus on one home remodeling category, a general contractor should have some expertise across the board.
  2. Wide Network: General contractors hire other contractors for specific jobs. Therefore, good general contractors should have a very wide network, ensuring they only work with the best pros in Lakewood, as well as in Hemet, Beaumont, Fontana, Ontario, and Redlands.
  3. Organized: All addition contractors have to juggle multiple projects at once. From ordering supplies to scheduling subcontractors, they need to prioritize every aspect of your Lakewood home addition. If just one aspect of the job gets lost, all can get delayed.
  4. Responsive: No matter what room you’re adding on, it’s going to be a costly investment. As such, chances are, you’ll want updates on all that is going on, especially if you moved out during the home renovation. Therefore, you need your general contractor to be responsive, whether that be via phone, text or email. While this can be hard to gauge after one interview, try texting or calling after your first chat and see how fast they respond. Sadly, many forget to respond. If they do, move on to the next room addition contractor.
  5. Friendly: Finally, you want a contractor you can get along with. This won’t be a two-hour job. Most Lakewood additions take at least two weeks to complete. You’ll be spending a lot of time with them, whether in person or on the phone. As such, being able to have a professional and friendly relationship can go a long way.

Room Additions Costs In Lakewood

Browsing for Lakewood addition contractors, you should already have a rough idea of the costs associated with all room or house additions. If not, we have your answers.

Given the wide range of possible additions, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact price for all Lakewood additions. As a general rule, expect to spend between $100/sf and $200/sf for your new room. Prices range heavily based on layout, plumbing, electricity, land, permits, insulation, drywall and much more.

Nonetheless, general costs for room additions in Lakewood are:

  • Bathroom Addition: $40,000 - $90,000
  • Kitchen Addition: $50,000 - $120,000
  • Bedroom Addition: $10,000 – $30,000
  • Garage Addition: $20,000 – $60,000
  • Living Or Family Room Addition: $20,000 – $80,000
  • Laundry Room Addition: $10,000 - $30,000
  • Basement Addition: $50,000 – $100,000
  • Office Addition: $10,000 - $30,000
  • Common Area Addition: $5,000 - $20,000
  • California Room Addition: $10,000 - $60,000
  • Deck Or Porch Addition: $5,000 - $20,000
  • Patio Or Sunroom Addition: $5,000 - $20,000
  • Bump Out or Micro-Addition: $10,000 - $50,000

To get an exact price for your specific remodeling addition, get in touch with local contractors via ImproveNet.

How To Save Money On Your Lakewood Addition

As you can see, additions are not cheap. At a minimum, you need to budget $5,000, and that’s for smaller additions. For entire rooms, you most likely won’t spend less than $20,000. Nonetheless, just like a Basement Remodel, Bathroom Remodel, Kitchen Remodel, Remodel Multiple Rooms, and Addition to Existing Structure, there are always a few shortcuts to save some cash and still get the quality addition you deserve.

First and foremost, interview multiple contractors. As you saw above, prices vary greatly. One Lakewood contractor may charge $10,000 for an addition and another may charge $5,000. Most contractors have different price points.

Next, try refinishing your basement or attic before adding an additional room. You can refinish a basement for as little as $4,000 in Lakewood, which is much more affordable than a basement addition (up to $100,000).

Also, don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. The less work your contractor has to do, the less you’ll pay in the end. Therefore, offer to buy materials yourself. Go pull permits from Lakewood, as opposed to having your contractor do it. Both of these tasks are tedious, but if you do them yourself, you could save hundreds, if not thousands, off your final home addition bill.

Home Addition Financing

If you’re still worried about your upcoming room additions costs, you’re not alone. Most Lakewood homeowners finance their home addition. Luckily, beyond borrowing from friends and family, you have a few financing options:

  • Home Equity Loan (HEL): This is a renovation mortgage with a fixed interest rate.
  • Refinance Mortgage: Essentially, you raise your mortgage the amount you owe for the home renovation.
  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): This loan is ideal for home additions because you receive the money in stages. It makes perfect sense if you’re going to make multiple big payments to your Lakewood addition contractor over the course of the project.

Micro-Additions

If you don’t want to take on any more debt but are sold on the idea of an addition, consider a micro-addition or bump out. As the name suggests, a bump out is a smaller addition to any individual room. Smaller additions don’t have the same dramatic effect as full home additions, but they do come with a host of advantages.

First and foremost, micro-additions are far cheaper than full house additions. While a typical, single home addition in Lakewood costs roughly $40,000, a bump out shouldn’t cost more than $15,000. Rather than an addition of a new room, the expansion of an existing room is not complicated and thus, costs much less.

Along the same lines, since you’re just adding a few feet to an existing room, a micro-addition rarely involves HVAC, plumbing or electric. Considering these three items significantly raise addition costs, it’s no surprise a micro-addition costs a fraction of a traditional room addition.

Finally, micro-additions do not take up much time or labor to complete. Depending on the room, the bump out could take as little as two days and you most likely won’t have to move out during construction. The same can not be said of a full Lakewood house addition.

Lakewood Contractor Licensing For Additions

California, to no surprise, is one of the more stringent states when it comes to home remodeling and required licenses. Contractors do not require licenses for smaller projects, such as a backsplash installation or toilet repair. However, all contractors in Lakewood charging more than $500 must be licensed and insured. Considering no Lakewood room addition or bump out is less than $500, make sure all addition contractors you interview are licensed by the California Contractors State License Board.

Find A Lakewood Addition Contractor

Any addition will not only improve your quality of life and give you more space, but it will also raise the value of your home. While many additions are demanding, most Lakewood homeowners agree that they are well worth it in the long run.

If you’re ready to take on a successful room addition today, ImproveNet can help. Let us help you find reliable Lakewood addition contractors today.
