For more than 55 years O'Mara has been completing all types of home improvements. House extensions of almost every style and design. Renovations to existing homes or heritage listed buildings. Kitchen and bathroom renovations. Removal of internal structural walls to engineer specifications. Re-roofs in colorbond or roof tiles. Single room additions and granny flats. Pergolas, decks and verandahs.
 
Most people think that extending an existing home is more expensive than building a new home. Although this may be true is some cases often it is more desirable to extend or renovate an existing property. Good quality economical land is now very hard to find and often it makes more sense to extend and renovate.

Often old homes have been built using construction methods now deemed too expensive. There are many old homes built using full brick construction, hardwood or Oregon frames and rafters. Pitched roofs in lieu of trusses. Terra-cotta roof tiles. Hardwood strip floors. High ceilings with decorative ceiling linings or cornices. Many of these older houses are structurally very stable and suit extending onto or renovating rather than just knocking down and re-building an inferior product. In areas such as Pennant Hills, Turramurra, Castle Hill, Hornsby, Kellyville, Dural there are many well built homes that would be much more practical to extend as these areas are full of structurally well built homes that just require some modern upgrades.

We do not require owners to vacate the house while completing home extensions or renovations. We are experienced and working with clients living in the home during the building process and considering their need for privacy and maintaining security of the home. We allow owners to supply building materials directly, the most popular being bathroom fittings, ceramic tiles and kitchen cooking appliances. We allow non-structural work by the owners (eg painting) or the use of nominated sub-contractors that the owners may know personally or have used previously.
 
We start any new building projects within 14 days of council approval and contract signing. Our quotes are very detailed and professionally presented. Our tradesmen onsite get a copy of the building quote (without the price) on site to ensure everyone knows exactly what is to be included in the building project.

Second story additions are now our most popular type of home extension. Please see our 2nd storey addition page for more information. This type of construction is now usually a good investment, better value for money and will dramatically change the street appearance of the home.
