Many times, our first job as a home addition contractor is to help clients see if building a room addition or even a second-story addition is the right answer. In fact, sometimes even the best home addition will not solve all the problems or provide all the “extras” a homeowner wants. How can you tell if building a home addition is right for you? Here are a few starting points:
- How do costs compare? How big a home addition do you need? Obviously, if you simply want to expand your kitchen or do a room addition, the cost for doing this is going be dramatically less than moving. Sometimes, even building a major multi-story addition can cost less than moving to a new home, especially when you consider real estate commissions, moving expenses, and other costs.
- How much do you love your existing home? If you love your location and neighborhood, and you love most things about your home, then calling a home addition contractor makes more sense. With a new room addition or even adding a large in-law or master suite, you may find you can now love everything about your existing home.
- Will a home addition work with your particular house? As an experienced home contractor, we can usually find a way to make a home addition mesh with the rest of the house. If the yard is small, we can build up to give you a second-story addition or even a multi-story addition. Additions, though, may be done quite creatively so do not rule them out without talking to us!
No matter what size or how old your home is, building an addition will not only increase its value but can help you have a completely new home without ever moving! Contact us today to find out just how affordable an addition can be and start dreaming!
