Are you thinking of adding a new room to your home? Before you dive in, it’s essential to have a solid plan in place. Take your time with it. Working with a reputable home addition contractor like Santangelo Construction can help avoid expensive errors and secure success. First, prepare yourself for the project to come with a few considerations.
Your Reason for an Addition
Before you contact a general contractor for a Stuart home, ask yourself: What’s the primary purpose of the addition? It might be worth exploring if you can achieve your goals by remodeling your existing space instead. Home remodeling can be less expensive than adding on and save you from worrying about constructing a new foundation and roof. Remodels can:
- Increase available space
- Utilize unused portions of the house
- Modernize aged areas of the property
The Expected Added Value
It would be best if you also considered the resale value of your addition. One easy way to do this is to check out what other homes in your neighborhood have that yours need to include. For example, if your house is the only one on the block with just one bathroom, adding another one could be a smart move that will pay off in the long run.
Create a Realistic Budget
Crunch some figures to determine what you can afford and decide how you will finance the project. But remember the other costs of adding square footage to your home. Plan for higher heating and cooling bills, increased homeowner’s insurance premiums, and a potential hike in property taxes. With careful design and budgeting, you can create the additional space without breaking the bank.
