Expand Your Home to Fit Your Family’s Needs
Room additions are an excellent way to add square footage and value to your existing home. Many people believe that if their home no longer accommodates the needs of their family, their only option is to move. However, room additions provide creative solutions by allowing you to expand your living space without the additional financial implications of purchasing a new home. If you enjoy your home and the area you live in, you should consider staying.
Why Consider Room Additions?
Room additions are an especially attractive option for growing families with good neighbors, friends, and schools in the area. When an individual or family has grown within a community—or invested in remodeling their home already—purchasing a new home simply to accommodate spatial needs may not be the ideal choice. SSquared Remodel works closely with each valued client to determine their goals for a room addition project, ensuring that their home can accommodate the needs of their family for years to come.
Popular Room Additions
There are many ways to expand the size of your home. Depending upon your needs, you may be interested in one of the following popular room additions:
1) New master bedroom suites
2) Additional bedrooms
3) Additional bathrooms
4) Expanding kitchens
5) Family rooms
6) Private spaces for aging parents
7) Additional closet space
You may also decide to increase floor space by adding a second story room to your existing home, which can increase the value, functionality, and comfort of your home, without infringing upon your lawn or garden footage.
What to Keep in Mind
Because room additions expand the size of your original home, it is important to keep zoning regulations in mind. In certain instances, you may require a variance from the planning and zoning board of appeals. A good contractor or architect will walk you through the entire process, or simply take care of it for you. Because regulations have changed over the years, it is important to find a contractor who is well versed in the legal aspects of zoning.
Get An Estimate
If you are interested in room additions, it is important to receive several estimates for the project you have in mind. At SSquared Remodel, we recommend getting at least three. It often surprises clients that we encourage them to seek price estimates elsewhere, but we firmly believe in the importance of comparing prices, and having the opportunity to interview your prospective builder. One should always be as educated as possible when renovating their home, and we are confident in our ability to provide the highest quality for the dollar your spend.
