Extensions and Additions

Long Island & New York City Home Extensions

Turtle Contracting is a Long Island general contractor and builder of home extensions, home additions and home add-ons. The areas we serve include Nassau County and Suffolk County, Long Island and the New York City boroughs of Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Home extensions are when you add to the "footprint" of the house, and they can increase the value of the home in addition to providing needed space. Extensions include a foundation, walls, roof, electrical and often plumbing connections. These are the big pieces, but then there is insulation, windows, doors, flooring and interior finishes.

One of the most important things when doing a home improvement project of this nature is to ensure that it looks like it belongs, as if the home extension was part of the house all along. Too often, a home extension looks like an afterthought. It is not always easy to integrate the home extension into the overall architectural design, but it is rewarding when accomplished.

Small Home ExtensionConstruction of a home extension requires attention to detail. The detail of the existing house that is. There are many reasons for a home extension including adding a family room, a dining room, a home office, a bedroom (perhaps with its own entrance), bathroom, or as part of a kitchen remodeling complete with new windows and, often, custom built-ins. These projects not only affect the way your home works inside, they actually affect your yard function and landscaping. A home extension can change the very look and style of one's home.

The cost of a home extension depends not only on the square footage added, but on the extent of the work to be done. When structural elements need to be removed or relocated, as when an outside wall is knocked down, costs will be higher. The level of finish you specify will also affect the budget. Custom cut granite or marble countertops or the use of exotic or old-growth wood does not come cheaply. Before breaking ground, we will work with you to carefully refine the details and accurately estimate the dollars and time required. The last thing we want is to surprise you with unexpected costs. Thoughtful design and planning can also avoid costly change orders.
