What do you do when your house is undersized or lacks vital amenities, like a master bathroom, family room, or spacious kitchen? If you’re happy with the things you can’t change about your home—such as the neighborhood, the yard, the school district, and the commutes to work and to shopping—adding on is the best way to upgrade your living conditions. Construction projects can be stressful and messy, but the payoff is huge. NJW can help to transform your home into a perfect fit for your lifestyle, your taste and your budget.
The key to success is careful planning and having a realistic understanding of what the job entails. As your Columbus Ohio remodeler, NJW, will walk you through your residential renovation project, from coming up with the right design to ensuring that the job gets done right.
You can’t simply tack on a new building to your existing house and call it an addition. You have to think of an addition as a whole-house renovation. Lucky for you, NJW, your Columbus home remodeling company can assist you through the entire process.
Here are some tips to help guide you when determining your next family room addition, or remodeling project:
- How would you design your house if you were building it new? Sometimes it is hard to see past what’s already there, like a bookcase or a doorway or wall. Forget about your house. Imagine you’re starting from scratch and create the ideal home. That liberates you to get really creative about what you want—and helps to prioritize your goals for the job. Then you can look for ways to turn your home into that dream house, through an addition, a remodeling project or a combination of both.
- Will the addition add value to your home? Even if you have no plans to sell anytime soon, you (or your family) will sell someday and you might also refinance or take out a home equity line of credit, for which you’ll want the best possible appraisal of your home. Always consider the resale value of your project.
- How will your addition tie into the house? Adding onto a home requires a bit of finesse to make it look like it belongs—while also taking advantage of all of the modern amenities available today. You’ll want to consider how the roofline connects to the house, how you’ll compliment the style of the house, from the interior and exterior finish materials to the windows to the utilities and heating and cooling. That’s a tall order for the typical homeowner, but as your columbus ohio general contractors we can help create the best possible plan for you.
