Additions & Remodels


Charlottesville’s rapid growth means that, now more than ever, quality home building must be a top priority. We’re a local family business, and we’ve lived here long enough to watch Charlottesville develop from a small farming town to a nationally recognized community as one of the best places to live. With that acclaim comes expansion, and Sun Structures is doing everything in our power to ensure our Charlottesville renovations, homes and additions continue to preserve the local aesthetic. We are honored to be able to support the city we love.
