Home Additions in Hoover
Is your home starting to feel a bit too small? Do you need more space to accommodate a growing family, retired parents or lifestyle adjustments? Rather than beginning the long and frustrating process of finding a new house in Hoover, why not opt for a home addition?
Walden Home Improvements, LLC has experience creating additional space in homes around town, so if you’re curious about the services we provide, we encourage you to get in touch today.
Why Build Onto Your Home?
Extending the square footage of your property offers many benefits! If you’ve been imaging what your home might look like with a few extra rooms, there’s no better time than now to get the ball rolling.
Provides Additional Space
If your home is starting to feel a bit cramped, there’s no need to start looking at real estate postings just yet. With a home addition from Walden Home Improvements, LLC, all the space you need can be created for you.
Helps You Avoid A Stressful Move
Not only is moving an unpleasant experience, it’s an expensive one. From real estate fees to the cost of hiring a moving company, the price tag can creep up before you know it. A home addition allows you to avoid the stress of moving by creating the perfect space for you in the home you already have. What are you waiting for?
Increases Home Value
Home additions can substantially increase the value of your home. By turning a two bedroom house into a three bedroom one, or by adding a self-contained apartment on the property, your home’s value will soar.
How Do Home Additions Work?
Before we get to work adding on to your home, Walden Home Improvements, LLC will sit down with you to discuss the details of the project. By making sure everyone is on the same page before things move forward, we can guarantee client satisfaction when all is said and done.
Once the plan has been finalized and all the necessary permits obtained, we mobilize our team and construction begins. As licensed general contractors, we are able to take care of everything in house. You don’t have to worry about keeping track of multiple companies—with us, everything is handled under one roof.
For home additions, you aren’t limited to bedroom space, either. If you’ve been dreaming of adding a dedicated space for entertaining, get in touch with us! We would be happy to discuss whatever you have in mind, and draw up some plans.
Four Steps for Home Addition Construction in Hoover
Designing and building a home addition is a lot of work. When many of our Hoover clients contact us, they think that a home addition will take about the same amount of effort as a remodeling project. In fact, it’s more like building a new home. To get a real sense of the scope of a home addition project, we tell our clients to think of it like building a second home into their current home.
However, the home addition needs to be properly integrated into your current interior and exterior design. So while it’s good to think of an addition as a separate house to get an idea of the size of the project, when considering its actual design, think of it as a remodel.
To get you started on the right track, here are four steps that go into every home addition construction job we do.
- Double check your property lines and the location of utilities. Figuring out where your property ends is the first step to designing a home addition. Along with this, you’ll also have to find out how close to the property line you are allowed to build and what kind of things you are allowed to build at what distance to your neighbor. Local restrictions often dictate these things. It’s also important to find and mark out the location of electrical and plumbing utilities. Without this first step, you could be building a financial sinkhole rather than a home addition.
- Create a design that is integrated into your current interior and exterior. Unless you are familiar with architecture, engineering, and interior design, you’ll probably need to contact a professional for this part. An architecture and design firm can help you draft a plan that will suit your current home and will be feasible within your budget. Going at it alone can be exciting but it can also lead to massive overspending and major roadblocks along the way.
- Plan the actual construction. Time to decide on the specifics. What kind of flooring are you going to use? What kind of siding for the exterior? What kind of windows? What kind of doors? What kind of lighting? What kind of paint? The list goes on and on. This is the decision making part. It’s where the budget really comes into play. You may have your heart set on a type of window whose cost will affect what you can spend on the flooring. Working these details out in advance is important to ensure that you’re happy with the final result of the home addition.
- Contact Walden Home Improvements, LLC. Time to get building!
