The 18-105mm has about the same build quality and optical performance of the 18-55mm. Both are kit lenses and optically excellent. If you are happy with the 18-55mm and are looking for more range, the 18-105mm should fit your requirements. If you are looking for improved optical performance and better build quality you might want to consider the 16-85mm.
