At Gay Custom Estates, we believe that every home or addition should be built with intention
With our strong network of subcontractors, generational building experience, and frequent transparent communication, we're equipped to handle any rear addition project with ease. Our goal is to make your second floor addition look seamless and like it was always a part of your home, while getting the project completed in a timely manner so you don't spend too much time in a renovation phase. Trust us to turn your vision into reality with a second floor addition that will exceed your expectations.
The first phase of the process involves meeting with you on site to assess your needs and goals for the project, as well as evaluate the site and any zoning or permit requirements that need to be addressed.
Once we cover the basics, we move on to the specifics! This phase involves developing a detailed design plan and scope of work for the project, as well as selecting materials and finishes that align with your preferences, budget, and the style of your existing home.
Next we firm up the logistical details. This phase involves obtaining all necessary permits and approvals from the relevant authorities to ensure that the project complies with local building codes and regulations.
This phase involves preparing the site for construction, which may include demolishing existing structures/roofing, clearing surrounding debris, removing trees, and laying the foundation.
Let's get to it! This phase involves the actual building of the second floor addition, including framing, electrical and plumbing installations, and finishing work, while providing regular updates and transparent communication at every stage.
Upon completion of the project, we conduct a final inspection to ensure that it meets all necessary requirements and ensure you're satisfied. We remain in contact with you in case any questions or concerns arise.
Any project we undertake is always built with intention. This means we will take great care in sourcing the desired materials for the project. Our close relationship with material providers allows us access to a wide variety of materials. If an exact match cannot be found, we will work closely with you to explore alternatives.
We acknowledge that adding a second floor addition to your property could impact your property taxes. The amount of increase varies based on multiple factors such as the size of the addition, location of the property, and local tax laws. Although we are definitely not tax experts, we can refer you to a trusted professional to guide and assist you with the property tax matters. We are committed to helping you complete your rear addition while minimizing potential financial impacts.
At Gay Custom Estates, we are committed to providing our clients with a truly customized experience. We offer project management services, which means that we can work with both our clients' preferred architects and designers or provide our own design team if needed. Regardless of who provides the design, our team will work closely with our clients to ensure that every aspect of your second floor addition meets your expectations and vision.
At Gay Custom Estates, we stand behind the quality of our work and offer a comprehensive warranty program for our custom homes. Our warranty includes a 7-year structural warranty, a 2-year warranty on electrical and mechanical systems, and a 1-year workmanship warranty. This means that if any issues arise with the structural integrity, electrical or mechanical systems, or workmanship of your new home during the warranty period, we will promptly address and resolve them at no additional cost to you.
In addition to our warranty program, we are committed to providing exceptional customer service and are always responsive to any questions or concerns you may have about your new home, even after the warranty period has expired. Furthermore, many of the products and materials used in our custom homes come with their own manufacturer warranties, such as flooring, shingles, and fixtures.
