The time has come and you are ready to add more space to your home to accommodate your growing family. Maybe your toddlers are bigger now and they need their own rooms or your adult child will be living with you for a while until they save up enough money for their own place. Maybe the use of your space has changed or the layout no longer works for you. Maybe you have decided not to relocate but instead prepare to age in place by adding and reorganizing your floor plan. Maybe you are thinking about bringing a parent to home to live with you.
Who will be your remodeling guide and coach?
There are many reasons why people add on to their homes. It is essential that you work with a remodeler who is experienced and capable to ensure that your project enhances your property as well as delivers what you want and need. An experienced home improvement contractor will guide you in the design, scope development, budgeting and blending of the new with the old. Your remodeler will be adept at helping you improve functionality and layout of the new space as it blends in with the existing.
Will your addition be designed and built so that it looks like it has been there all along?
It is crucial that your project is designed and built in such a way that it looks like it has always been there. You want to think about using similar materials to create a consistent look. Think about the windows, doors, trim, roofing and overhang size. This is best achieved by working with a Design/Scope Develop/Build remodeler who will create real life 3D renderings to show you what your project will look before they start ripping off the side of your house.
Who will be assessing the existing structure and utilities for code and zoning compliance?
At Paradis Remodeling and Building LLC we will assess your existing structure and systems and let you know if your addition project will trigger additional code upgrade work before you start the project. This is done so that you know how much to budget for your project before it starts and you do not get WACKED with change orders. (A common occurrence when homeowners hire the wrong contractor or designer!)
We use the Design/Scope Develop/Build Process to help our customers create the additions they desire. Adding space to your home, using the right remodeling contractor, can be a great investment. As with any large remodeling project, it's important to think through the many considerations to ensure you end up with the appropriate space for your needs.
