Develop specific plan

You may dream of a sunroom or garage added to your home. To make this dream a reality, you need to get specific about the space you want. Shape, size, and placement are key items you need to consider when hiring a contractor to build a home addition. If you have questions or are looking for suggestions, your contractor can offer advice. They can also evaluate the location you have chosen for your addition to determine if these plans are feasible.

Confirm details

Additions can require more planning than an agreement between a homeowner and a builder. Often, houses are subject to planning and zoning laws. Your contractor can assist you in securing the necessary permits to build on your property. You will also firm details regarding costs in this stage of addition planning. You will want to secure all confirmations and agreements in writing so there are no questions or concerns later during the development process. If you have additional questions, your contractor will continue to assist you during all steps of the project.

Build your addition

Depending on the location and duration of the project, building an addition to your home can be disruptive. It is important to plan well in advance of construction to ensure you and your family can live comfortably and safely while building is occurring on your property. Production schedules can vary depending on the project planning, but you can continue regular correspondence with your contractor to remain updated about your project. The finished product will leave you with a tidied space, and if you would like to add detail and style to your addition, the contractor can connect you with designers.
