additions can add square footage and value to your existing
home, without the additional expenses incurred in the purchase
of a new home. This is especially attractive to growing families.
Most room additions consist
of extending the size of your home by adding the new room
to an exterior wall. Popular room additions are new bedrooms,
but dens, living rooms, dining rooms, and studies or studios
can easily be included, depending on the needs of the family
or individual. A growing trend in today's society is to add
comfortable, private spaces for aging parents, while sharing
the traditional family areas.
Other popular room additions
include increasing floor space by adding a second story room
to your existing home, sometimes called a "pop-top."
This can increase the value, functionality, and comfort of
your home, without robbing you of lawn or garden footage.
And yet more ideas for
room additions are garages, carports, porches, decks, or sunrooms.
In all instances, the value and equity of your home is increased
along with its usability.
There are contractors
who specialize in room additions, but many general contractors
and remodeling contractors perform this same service. A well-planned
and executed room addition can make a dramatic difference,
both in the livability of your home, and in its value.
