Ready to create more living space in your home this year?

For your home, this New Year could mean a new living space. Have you found yourself dreaming about that romantic master bedroom suite, or perhaps a bathroom addition? Maybe it’s been an additional dwelling or ADU that you’ve been dreaming of. Whatever living space upgrade has been on your wish-list it’s important to have an idea of the average contractor quotes in Los Angeles.

Average cost of room addition

When you’re working with a Los Angeles local contractor, you’ll notice that companies have different ways of pricing their renovations. When remodeling your living space there are three components that will ultimately affect your quote:

  • the total square footage or size of the addition
  • the fixtures and finishes that you’d like to see utilized within your new living space
  • the building materials

These elements are exactly why we offer free in-home consultations to assess room additions in Los Angeles.

If youcommission a professional general contractor, who has expert experience with room additions, the average cost in the Los Angeles area would be starting at $285.00 per square foot of added living space.

So, for example, if you got a permit to add 300 square feet of additional living space that investment is roughly around $60,000 before any final features are added to your new room. This investment will cover all the professional components of the renovation such as any additions to your home’s foundation, framing, windows and doors, insulation and roofing to match the existing house. The electrical work would be included as well but there could be some projected savings if your room addition is, for example, a breezeway, sunroom or garage conversion without the need for electrical outlets.
