Choosing the Right Room Addition Contractor in Los Angeles
Room additions can enhance the appearance, functionality, and value of your home. They’re a popular option for homeowners in Southern California, where adding square footage can significantly increase a home’s resale value.
Maybe you need more space to accommodate your growing family, or you work from home and need an office suite. Perhaps you’ve always wanted a second floor or an in-home gym.
Whatever you envision for your home, finding the right contractor is everything.
More than half of homeowners end up frustrated and unsatisfied with their home remodeling contractor or with how their project turns out. Our mission at GreatBuildz is to help you avoid this situation.

Room Additions vs. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
Room additions and accessory dwelling units are often confused, but they’re not the same.
A room addition is a build-out of an existing structure to increase its square footage and functionality. Adding another bathroom or bedroom, enlarging an existing living area, or adding a second floor are all examples of room additions.
An accessory dwelling unit is a standalone structure designed to function as a small home. An ADU typically has its own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom/sleeping area, and living space. It can be used as a guest house, rental unit, home office, art or music studio—or even a “man cave” or “she shed.”
Room Addition Tips for Homeowners
Hiring a reputable, experienced contractor is key to ensuring your room addition project goes smoothly. But doing a little prep work can help you avoid some common pitfalls. Here are some tips:
Determine your budget. Research what similar projects cost in your area. This will help you set a realistic budget and determine whether contractor estimates are reasonable.
Decide what features you want. Make a list of all the must-haves for your addition, whether you’re adding a second floor or expanding the size of your kitchen. Give the list to any contractor you’re considering so every estimate is based on the same factors.
Research what’s involved. Take some time to familiarize yourself with local laws and codes. This will help you determine whether your dream addition is allowed where you live. It will also help you know how the construction process should unfold. It always helps to be informed.
Get three estimates. Reach out to at least three general contractors for estimates. This will help you identify overpriced contractors—but also companies that underprice their services because they cut corners.
Never pay more than a small deposit. If your contractor pressures you into paying a large deposit, this is a red flag. In California, contractors can’t legally ask for more than a $1,000 deposit. If a contractor asks for more, they are violating the law.
Don’t be afraid to walk away. If a prospective contractor uses aggressive sales tactics, refuses to answer questions, or fails to return your calls within a reasonable time frame, these are red flags. If you’re feeling uneasy about a contractor, go with your gut and move on. Then call GreatBuildz to be connected with a reputable contractor.
