All home improvement projects can be challenging because it can affect your daily routine. As contractors work in your home, you will most likely be disturbed by the loud noises and clutter. You always want to choose the least disruptive, yet most effective solution. This is why home additions have become very popular as of late.
Since house additions mostly involve building new space rather than restructuring, it is generally faster and easier to complete. It even allows you to live in your home throughout the renovation. Nevertheless, you still want it to be completed as soon as possible, which begs the question of “how long does it take?”
Since there are many types of home additions, there is no way to determine exactly how long it will take. Fortunately, an experienced contractor will be able to give a rough timeline as soon as they assess the house and take your needs into consideration.
While each contractor has their own techniques, we can help you out with the basic steps to follow during the home addition process.
Before the project can begin, the first thing you have to do is determine the type of room addition you want. This means listing what your objectives or needs are. Realistically, not all your needs will be met because it depends on too many external factors, such as budget, size, etc. This is why you should prioritize the things you absolutely need that will improve the quality of your life. Aside from that, you should also do your own research to see what type of room addition suits you.
Once you have done that, you can contact one of our home improvement contractors to appraise your home and give you an estimate. We can guide you on the best way to expand your home. This usually means deciding between building up, building out or maybe even both. Most people with big yards choose to build out because it takes less time and effort to complete. Also, it usually costs less than if you were to have a new level addition.
Assuming that the estimate agrees with your budget, the contractor will then propose several plans for the expansion. This includes what benefits the plan can provide you. It is important to clearly communicate your requirements and expectations so that the contractor can incorporate them into the design. This will speed up the process and help you come to a decision quickly. Our experienced contractors will also be able to explain the undertaking each project requires.
Once you choose and approve a plan, the contractor will ensure that all details of the design are meticulously covered in order to help with the execution. With this, your home addition project can commence.
