Here are a few guideline questions to ask before you get started:

What is your budget?

Knowing your budget is perhaps the best place to start when planning any room add-on. It is important to establish a realistic budget and to know where the funds will come from – savings, home equity loans, home equity lines of credit, 2nd mortgages. More than any other factor, budget will determine the size of your room addition and the types of building materials you will use.

Do you know your property lines and setbacks?

Knowing your property lines will help you determine where you can locate your room addition. If you are unsure if your property lines and setbacks fit with your planned room addition, we can help. Or you can contact your local building inspector or zoning board. They are available to help answer any questions you have, and are an excellent resource for useful tips and ideas.

Will your remodel keep your home in line with neighboring home values?

It is important to understand how building a room addition will impact the value of your home. In terms of return on investment, bigger is not always better, especially if it prices your home above the market trends in your neighborhood. Contact a local real estate agent to discuss your planned room addition and the effect it will have on your home’s value.

Have you selected the right room addition contractor?
