Like any home remodel, room additions require a lot of planning, patience and time to make sure that everything is exactly how you want it to be. To make this process as seamless as possible, Progressive Builders has compiled five tips to help you prepare for a room addition.
- Make thorough plans.
Room additions take a lot of time to plan out because there is so much to consider. Besides the foundational concerns like location, necessary permits, maintenance of the home’s exterior aesthetic and practicality of the room addition, you also have to consider and plan for how long the construction will last and figure out an optimal time to do it based on the weather and busy work or school schedules. On top of this, it’s a good idea to think about how you want the design and décor of the room to look.
- Mark areas as “off-limits”.
Your plans should also consider how your house will function during construction. Make sure that rooms and areas that you and your family need for your day-to-day lives are clearly marked as “off-limits”, so you can continue with normal life as best you can while construction takes place.
- Secure the house.
Sometimes, however, depending on where the remodeling is taking place, necessary parts of the house will be impacted by construction. Make sure that you and your family are prepared to be a bit more flexible and have essential daily items, such as utensils and towels, far and away from the construction and easily available.
- Have realistic expectations.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your room remodel. Speak to experts at Progressive Builders about your project so that you can have a better idea of what your project will actually look like and how long it will take to complete. This information is crucial to ensuring that your room addition stays exciting and doesn’t become too stressful.
- Hire a contractor.
Last but not least, you will want to hire a contractor for your room remodel. You’ll want someone to work with you to make your design ideas into drawn realities, to help you select building materials and to ensure that your project becomes exactly what you want it to be. Progressive Builders is here to walk you through the process, step by step, offering great services to help you make your house even more of a home.
