JW Fine Remodeling offers turnkey addition design/build services for attached, detached and roof additions. 


We expertly design and build additions that increase living area and usable space and home resell value; are seamless in appearance and appear as a natural part of the home. 

We believe the addition must amalgamate with the existing dwelling while providing excellent flow and function as intended. We further believe:

  • The new foundation and floors, walls and roof surfaces should be the same plane and height.

  • The foundation, exterior walls and roof finishes should match the existing home as close as possible with currently available materials. 

  • Hardwood flooring's should tooth-in perfectly with the existing strip flooring's.
