Home Addition: 5 Must-Know Steps for a Seamless Project

It isn’t uncommon for families to grow out of their home. However, when you live in a nice neighborhood and are in the perfect location, you don’t want to move. Unfortunately, something has got to give. A home addition is your solution. You can get what you want and the additional room that you need without moving to a brand new home. Here are five tips to help your home addition project go smoothly:

  1. Be Familiar with Your Budget – Before beginning, determine your budget. Make sure that you have the money to do what you have planned. As you move forward, don’t lose track of your budget and expenses. You should also prioritize the elements of the home addition so that if you do run out of funds that you have hopefully achieved the most important things.
  2. Matching Materials – Since you’re adding a room on, it needs to match as closely as possible to your existing structure. If the perfect match cannot be achieved, then try to choose something that is similar in texture and color. Alternatively, if your original structure is siding, you may be able to consider stone or brick for the addition.
  3. Details Are Crucial – Many tend to think that the basis of the structure is the wills, but the details are important as well. From windows and trim to shingles and gutters, you need to incorporate some of the key elements of the original structure in the new addition.
  4. Don’t Forget the Landscaping – Believe it or not, when you add on a new room, the landscaping is important too. You want a seamless transition and the landscaping can help make it work.
  5. Plan for Chaos – A home addition may not be as hectic as an entire home remodel, but it is still chaotic. It’s going to be a little while before things are back to normal, so plan accordingly.

Most of these details can be handled by a skilled, professional and knowledgeable contractor, so you don’t have to worry about handling every aspect of the home addition project all on your own. Just don’t forget that things will be a little messy and crazy at first, but it will all be worth it in the end!
