Why Home Additions?

When it comes to maximizing your home’s potential, there’s no better way to do it than with a home addition. You may be asking, “Why would I need extra space?” or “Is it really worth the investment?” Allow us to elaborate on some compelling reasons that make home additions a popular choice among homeowners in Canton, Akron, and Northeast Ohio.

Enhancing Living and Floor Space

Ever wish your living space could magically expand? With a conventional house addition, we can make your wish come true! At DM, we specialize in thoughtfully designed, carefully executed home additions that not only add floor space but also enhance the overall functionality of your home. Imagine, no more bickering over who gets the bathroom first in the morning or not having enough room to entertain guests during holidays. More than just an extra room, a home addition offers you the luxury of space—space to breathe, space to grow, and space to do more with your life.

Value Addition to Existing House

Looking to up your home's resale value? A well-planned home addition can be a fantastic asset and one of the most cost-effective ways to build equity! According to real estate experts, adding more functional space to your home can significantly increase its market value. But it's not just about monetary gains; it's about enhancing your lifestyle. Whether it's a new dining room for those family dinners, a guest bedroom for visiting relatives, or even an attached garage for that classic car you've been restoring, every addition brings a new dimension of comfort and utility to your existing house.


Want a sunroom addition or a walk-in closet? How about converting that cold, unused basement into a warm family room? With our professional services, you can make your home truly yours. We understand that every family has unique needs and preferences. That's why we offer personalized solutions tailored to meet your specific requirements. From sunroom additions to custom-built walk-in closets, from basement remodels to second-story add-ons, your options are practically limitless. Our job is to bring your vision to life, adding a personal touch to every project we undertake.

The DM Process

Embarking on a home addition project can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. But fret not! With DM, you’re in good hands. Serving the communities of Canton, Akron, and Northeast Ohio, our process ensures that we not only meet but exceed your expectations. Here’s a step-by-step look at how we bring your visions to life:


First things first, we kick off with a one-on-one consultation. Your aspirations, needs, and budget are paramount, so we sit down with you to delve into what exactly you're looking to achieve with this home improvement project. We'll explore different ideas, examine the feasibility, and establish a clear scope, making sure that we're in alignment with your expectations right from the get-go.

Site Evaluation

Once we have a shared vision, our next step is to visit your property for a comprehensive site evaluation. Our experts will assess the space, taking precise measurements and identifying any potential challenges that might crop up later. No detail is too small for us—everything from the natural light to the existing floor space is meticulously noted. This stage sets the stage for a successful, hiccup-free home addition.

Design Phase

Armed with the insights from our consultation and site evaluation, we move to the drawing board—literally. Our professional services include tailored designs that encapsulate all your needs and wants. We'll finalize the materials, finishes, and ideal fixtures, ensuring everything is up to code. From a conventional house addition to a dazzling sunroom or a practical garage space, this is where your dream starts to materialize.

Building and Installation

This is the moment you've been waiting for. With permits in hand and a full understanding of the building codes, we get down to the actual building and installation. You can expect transparency, punctuality, and a keen attention to detail as we bring your vision to life. Whether it's laying down new basement flooring, assembling wall panels on site, or installing a newly finished dining room, we keep you in the loop throughout the process, ensuring a stellar result that aligns with the initial design plans.

And let’s face it, in cities like Canton, Akron, and the broader Northeast Ohio area, you want to make sure everything is on the up and up.

Research and Preparation

Knowledge is power. Before we even hammer the first nail, we've already dived deep into your local area's zoning laws, building codes, and permit requirements.

Filing and Submission

If paperwork isn't your thing, no worries—we've got it covered. We'll prepare all the necessary documents, including floor plans, project timelines, and materials lists, and submit them to the relevant authorities.

Inspections and Approvals

Once the work begins, there will be scheduled inspections to ensure everything is being done according to code. Don't sweat it; we’re used to this.

Final Approval and Certificate of Occupancy

At the end of the project, a final inspection is conducted. Once we get the thumbs up—which we usually do—it's time to celebrate! You'll receive a Certificate of Occupancy, which is your official green light to enjoy your new living space.
