Room Additions: Contractor Tips and Advice

Room Additions: Contractor Tips and Advice 2014-10-13T10:28:57+00:00

There is one constant in life and that is change and sometimes 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 through a room addition.

Here are a few points to consider when deciding what type of room addition is most suitable for you.

  1.  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.
  2.  However, if yard space is limited, one may need to build up, adding a second level.
  3.  Another option to consider is internal expansion through the knocking out of a wall to join two inside rooms into one larger room.

TIP A: It is imperative that prior to making these decisions, one consult with an experienced professional San Diego remodeling contractor, so that they can inspect the foundation and other areas to ensure they can handle the room addition.

TIP B: One also must consult with a local building inspector to ensure there will be no code violations. An architect may also be necessary to ensure the addition is designed to spec and local city and/or state code. If you choose to hire us at HK Construction we do all that leg work for you.
