Firstly, communication is key. At Wesgrove we believe in asking several questions, listening to our client’s dreams and goals, and reviewing our plan in detail with them prior to beginning any working relationship or contract.

Secondly, learn about the differences between “fixed cost” and “cost plus” contracts and discuss it upfront. Many contractors will sign clients on a base “fixed cost” contract without in depth investigation into possible additional costs, additional hours that may arise, or with a lack of communication in the agreed upon work. All of these variables can add additional costs that would be added throughout the project, skyrocketing your budget. At Wesgrove, we sign the majority of our projects on a true, fixed cost basis. To learn in detail about our process, click here.

So, what does “fixed cost” at Wesgrove really mean? The price agreed upon and signed off on prior to beginning any work is the price you will pay at the end of your project. We provide a payment schedule outlining each payment throughout the duration of your project. The only factor that would adjust your price would be through a change order. This is discussed and signed off on by the client prior to the change order work commencing. This covers costs for additional work added by the client.

Where a “fixed cost” approach is not possible, projects would be signed in a “cost plus” contract. This is for projects where there are many unforeseeable conditions and variables outside of our control. We discuss all your options with you prior to signing. We strive to remain within our client’s budget and schedule through being highly detail orientated, doing our research prior to work commencing, and communicating thoroughly every step of the way.

Lastly, ensure your contractor is licensed, insured, and reputable. Word of mouth is everything in our industry and community. Renovating or building your home will likely be one of the greatest decisions you will make as it can be quite costly and time consuming. Trusting your contractor with your time and budget is something not to take lightly. At Wesgrove, the majority of our clients have come to us through word of mouth and referrals, which is the greatest compliment. You can read all of our previous reviews on Google and Houzz.

Home Additions

Lacking space but love your home? This is a common issue for many homeowners. They’re happy with their location, they have made great memories in the home, and it checks all their boxes, except space. As their family grows or their lives change, they find themselves needing extra room. Home additions can also be a great option for income purposes. Adding space to an existing suite can be a great way to increase rental income.
Home additions in the City of Delta are common but can take some research and proper permitting to complete. Wesgrove will handle all City communication, permitting, plans, architectural drawings, and designs for you to ensure the process is done properly from start to finish. We often suggest working closely with a designer or architect for larger scale additions but we’ll work with you to find the best path to your dream home.

An addition to your home may make sense for you currently while you plan to reside in the house, but it will also greatly increase your home’s value in the future should you wish to sell. Additional livable space and square footage is always a great investment.

Reach out to find out more on how to begin the process. We are here to answer your questions and provide professional construction insight and knowledge into your goals and visions for your home addition.

"Working with Jason and his crew was an especially great experience. Renovations can be stressful, especially when you are living in your house and 1/3 of it is uninhabitable. Wesgrove checked all the boxes for what a contractor should do - there was great communication, the crew and subcrew were polite and tidy, and the renovation finished when they said it would. "
