There is one constant in life and that is change. And so our homes need to change with us. Families grow bigger or other needs come up that require more space. And that’s when one must consider whether it’s more feasible to leave their beloved home for a bigger one -OR- to grow their home with a room addition.

Here are a few points to consider when deciding what type of room addition is most suitable for you.
- If your home has enough yard space, it may be more economical to have a room addition built onto the same level into the front, back or side yard; whichever applies best.
- However, if yard space is limited, one may need to build up, adding a second level.
- Another option to consider is internal expansion through the knocking out of a wall to join two inside rooms into one larger room.
PRO TIP A: It’s very important that prior to making these decisions one consult with an experienced professional San Diego remodeling contractor. This is so that they can inspect the foundation, load bearing walls and other areas to ensure they can handle the room addition.
PRO TIP B: If using a budget contractor then you must consult with a local building inspector to ensure there are no code violations. An architect may also be necessary to ensure the addition is to spec and local city and/or state code. If you choose to hire us at HK Construction we do all that work for you.
