3 Factors to Consider with Room Additions

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014 by Nick Cohen

Adding a room to a house is a great way not only to create a more spacious home, but also allows you to add a personal touch onto a house that you did not design or build yourself. You can make a customized space that meets your individual needs and meshes with your lifestyle.

A room addition is a large project: not on the scale a new home construction, but nonetheless one that takes considerable planning. To assist with this planning and to make it less stressful, bring in a contractor for your room addition who can work on all stages of the project, from early designs concepts to the last touches hooking the space to the electrical system. Advanced Builders & Contractors has 26 years of experience with room additions in Los Angeles, CA, and we can bring together all the factors involved in the job so you end up with the new space of your dreams.

Take into account these 3 factors for your room addition

  1. Market value: Once you know the type of room you wish to build, research your area to find out about the market value of homes that have had similar additions. This will help you establish you budget, since it’s wise to keep your costs for the addition in line with how much the addition will increase the home’s value. As with many steps of a home addition, you should take a long view approach.
  2. Size and scale: There are more budget steps to consider (consult with your contractor for most of them), and part of the budgeting rests on how large the new room is and its scale relative to the rest of your home. Many first-timers with room additions opt to go bigger than they should, both for their actual needs and for the good of the rest of the home: they could end up with a drafty space and a design that doesn’t fit with the existing home. You need a skilled designer to help you match the size and look of your new addition to your home.
  3. Timetable: Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your new room won’t be either. Establish with your contractor how long each stage of construction will take, and which ones will require you to take extra steps for the comfort of your family to minimize the disruptions. You can work with the contractor to design a calendar that will fit with your other plans.
