Get a well-designed, quality-built home addition that is a seamless extension of your existing home

Liptak 58 years Family Tradition Experience Whether you are thinking of a bump-out, a second story home addition or you want to replace an existing structure, such as a porch or garage, you probably have questions.

  • What structural issues need to be considered?
  • What kind of building permits do I need?
  • What are my best material options?
  • What are my design options?
  • What could my new addition look like?
  • What kind of experience and qualifications should my contractor have?
  • How will my renovation be managed?
  • How long will my renovation take?
  • How much will my new addition cost?
