Some home buyers purchase a home with home renovations and / or additions already in mind. Commonly chosen renovations include adding more living space, upgrading to energy efficient and sustainable materials, improving flow and organization, upgrading the design aspects of the home or adding a home office.

Style, substance and functionality are key goals for any home renovation. At LIDA Homes, our expert team knows that in addition to creating a beautiful aesthetic, your updated space needs to fit your lifestyle.

Types of Home Renovations

Because it’s such an integral part of your house, you should feel completely at home in your kitchen. Whether you crave an upgraded chef’s kitchen, a large island with cooktop, or cleverly designed storage, a kitchen remodel will add value to your home.kitchen renovations victoria bc - before and after

Home Additions

When you love your home and neighbourhood, but simply need more space, a home addition is a great solution. Today’s home prices mean that many homeowners are opting to add income-generating suites, and this has become a common renovation request. Homeowners also opt for room additions or adding an entire second story to increase living space and square footage for a growing family and changing needs. Whatever you have in mind, our home addition contractors will work with you to determine the best solution for improving upon the house you already have.

Home Addition Ideas:

  • An income-generating or in-law suite on the lower or upper story
  • A home office
  • A family/entertainment room
  • A wet bar
  • Covered porch or patio to extend the existing living area to the outdoors

House Lifts

Love your home but have your eye on a beautiful ocean-front lot or acreage? We can move your entire home onwards and upwards. Do you have troublesome foundation damage? The rainy climate here in Victoria means that homes can sometimes become subject to foundation damage or flooded basements. Jacking up a house to repair a foundation will eliminate this problem and prevent it from happening in the future.

If you’ve been considering purchasing a rental property but aren’t sure about buying a separate home, lifting a house is also a great way to add more square footage for an income suite. This is especially true when lot size constraints mean adding a carriage house or building laterally aren’t an option.

House Lift Ideas:

  • A full height basement to add another story to the home
  • Building the house upwards rather than outwards to preserve the size of the yard
  • Repairing or replacing a damaged foundation
  • Moving a home to a preferred location
