The answer to this question totally depends on the type of home or project to be completed. Basically, for the usual homes (second storey home additions with interior renovations), it takes around 6 months to complete. This includes demolition to moving in.
The home addition has an extensive scope and it takes more time to complete. Let us give you a fair idea for the different types of projects we complete.
Basements: 6-8 weeks
Full interior renovation-16 weeks
Extension off the home-8-12 weeks
This is just the approximate duration and the number can vary greatly depending on the preparation from the client side, the times we are allowed to work, and many other factors.
Important note: If the clients are undergoing a major home addition or full interior renovation, they will not be able to live in their home and will surely have to find some other accommodations.
Yes, we can provide you with the rough price based on the drawings but the price range will change based on what is seen in the permit drawings.

It is a good starting point for the people to work with when figuring out what they can include in the scope of their project.

You need a permit linked with any job that changes the layout of your home, whether it is linked with taking out a wall or remodeling your basement.
The Toronto city has a special FastTrack program that makes it easy for you to get the permits for some projects in existing one or two dwellings within a few weeks.
Following are the projects eligible for the FastTrack program.
- Additions with cumulative areas up to 100 m2 on all floor levels
- Minor interior alterations
- Second suite to residential dwellings
- Conversion from up to 3 residential units to a single-family dwelling
- Decks, verandahs, porches, and canopies
- Garages and carports
- Accessory structures (such as gazebos and storage sheds)
- Basement entrances, underpinning
- Pool fence enclosures
- Fire damage repairs
- Plumbing permits for residential dwellings
- HVAC for Residential FASTRACK permits after issuance of related building permits
- revisions to Residential FASTRACK Permits
This totally depends on a specific project. In the case of large home additions, the review process is quite long to make sure that the new structure will be structurally sound. Our old clients had to wait for around 4 months to get the permit drawings to start their projects.
This question varies with different cases and cannot be answered until the scope of the project is disclosed. The project can be delayed in case it goes to the property of investment.
No, we do not deal in commercial work.
We do not finance for the projects but there are many options being a homeowner. This includes taking a credit, taking a home equity loan, or using your savings.
We have a vast experience working with the clients that flip homes. Such projects are a very popular investment opportunity and we deliver superior and best general contracting services to make sure that you have a major profit on your investment.
We flip homes that retain a certain area of the existing home’s footprint( a wall with the existing foundation for example), which considers the project a home addition and not a new home.
