As hard as we try to plan out our futures, unexpected things always pop up. Hopefully that means good things, like increasing the size of your family! If you and yours can no longer fit into your existing home, but aren’t ready to move into a new house altogether, a home addition may be just what the doctor ordered.
Adding an extra floor, backroom or expanded basement to your house can increase space and comfort, all while boosting the value of your home. But it isn’t the right option for everyone. That’s why consulting with home addition builders is worth your time and money.
Why Consult with Home Addition Builders?
An expert home addition builder can perform a deep analysis of your aims and current situation, helping you determine the best available option. Here are some things experts consider:
- Your Objective – First off, consider how the addition fits into your future hopes and dreams. Is it needed because you need more space but love your present location and don’t want to move? Is it because you lack the budget for a new home? Do you need a new addition? Knowing exactly what you want/need out of the project can help the builder determine whether an addition is appropriate, and if so, what the specifications should be.
- Your Home’s Resale Value – While the primary objective of a custom homes design build is to make the home more comfortable and beautiful, the impact on resell value is important as well. A qualified builder can weigh your budget, objectives and other factors influencing home prices to determine whether it’s worth your money. You may be better off buying a new house altogether, or staying put.
- Local Building Regulations – If you live in Toronto or the surrounding area, your neighbourhood has building codes. How tall your house can be, how much surface area it can occupy, and which materials you can build with. An advantage of consulting with home addition builders is that they can make sure your addition meets building codes, and if necessary, help you apply for permits.
