Home additions

Do you love your existing home in a Charlotte area neighborhood, but need additional square footage?

No matter why you need extra living space, a home addition can be an effective and economical option. Home additions can save:

  • Moving costs
  • Realtor® commissions
  • Other expenses associated with a move
  • Your valuable time
  • The headaches that come with selling your home and finding another one

Plus, home additions in neighborhoods like Myers Park, Providence Country Club and Foxcroft, just to name a few, typically yield an immediate increase in value and/or a future return on your investment.

  • Create a seamless home addition
  • That fully addresses your needs

We understand that a home addition is a major endeavor. To help our clients better understand the process, we’ve created “Palmer Custom Builder’s Remodeling and New Construction Guide.” This booklet outlines what you can expect and the emotions you are likely to feel at every stage. It’s just another aspect of our dedication to making your project a satisfying experience.

Sunroom conversions increase living space — and your enjoyment!

Even in our moderate climate Charlotte, NC homeowners in communities like Piper Glen, Providence Plantation and Landsdowne, just to name a few, need protection from Mother Nature. If the heat of summer or the chill of winter forces you to flee your deck, why not convert it to a heated and air-conditioned sunroom? Don’t be fooled; sunroom construction is complex. Seamlessly marrying a sunroom addition to your home requires an experienced design-build remodeling contractor. Building on decades of remodeling experience, we have the practical knowledge to ensure that every aspect of your sunroom is designed to function as well as it looks. Plus, we use durable, low-maintenance materials to give it lasting beauty.

Expand your indoor/outdoor living options

Whether you’re looking for front porch ideas to take your home to the next level, an enclosed patio to serve as your private retreat, or a screened porch that will make your backyard the envy of your neighbors, Palmer Custom Builders is there for you. We help our clients make the most of their porches and backyards by bringing year-round functionality to their living spaces.

We create beautiful pergolas that define a space, covered porches that protect from the elements, and more. While some remodeling contractors steer away from “extras” like pool houses and pool construction, we professionally coordinate everything for our clients, offering true turnkey service.


Outdoor living spaces

Spend your time enjoying your space instead of maintaining it!

Here in Charlotte, NC area neighborhoods like Dilworth, Quail Hollow, Ballantyne and more, gracious outdoor living areas are nearly as essential as interior rooms. Don’t trust these spaces to a company inexperienced with the nuances of construction.

  • Shaded pergolas
  • Pools, pool houses and water features
  • Outdoor fireplaces and firepits
  • Outdoor kitchens
  • Decks, patios and seating areas

We believe each deserves the same level of professional attention and all should be designed to blend seamlessly with the style of your home. Plus, we’ll coordinate with masonry and landscaping professionals to offer turnkey service and complete your project with low-maintenance materials.


Guest suites

Add value and convenience to your home

Changing family dynamics and economic realities are altering the way we look at how families live together. One simple way to accommodate aging parents or older children is by creating a mother-in-law suite from space in your attic, garage or bonus room or through a home addition. These suites typically feature a bedroom and bathroom and may include a living area and kitchenette. The beauty of these spaces is that they can take any shape and size you like and they add value to your home. But these spaces are too complex to trust to anyone but a qualified, professional contractor, since they involve tying into existing HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems as well as the structure of your existing home.

Rev up your living space with garage remodeling

Are you desperate for more storage space? Do you dream of a day when you can actually park your vehicle in your garage instead of having to place it precariously in your driveway? Do you have underutilized space above your garage that your family could sorely use? When it comes to home remodeling and home renovations, garages are often one of the best and most affordable yet most underutilized spaces in our homes.

Why is garage remodeling so cost-effective?

  • The basic structure — foundation, walls, ceiling and roof system — are in place.
  • In some cases, the garage may already be insulated.
  • The cost of even dramatic changes, such as raising ceilings, building walls, or adding stairs are reduced.

Whether you are undertaking a substantial remodeling project that creates a guest suite above your existing garage or a minor renovation that adds cabinetry and storage, a skilled remodeling contractor like Palmer Custom Builders can take your garage to the next level.
