Home Remodeling Spotlight: Home Additions

In the spectrum of home remodeling projects, it’s more common to hear about kitchen or bathroom renovations. Though these are the most requested projects, many homeowners also want to expand their living space. Remodeling an existing room usually cannot solve this problem. To make a more drastic change, you need a home addition. This type of renovation is only possible with an organized team of contractors who are experienced in incorporating a new structure with an existing home.

Since these projects are large in scale, it’s essential to work with a company that offers an extensive consultation, design, and construction service. Having every department in-house allows projects to start and finish on time.

Besides a cohesive construction and design team, what are some other things to consider?

Consideration #1: Your “Why”

If your reason includes your deep love for your current home and location, then a home addition is a possible solution for you. You can be struggling with balancing your evolving needs in a cramped home. You aren’t interested in listing your home or visiting house after house to see if another can work out. Plus, the process of uprooting and having to get to know a new neighborhood can be daunting.

Your dream property doesn’t have to be in some distant neighborhood. You can make your existing home the best place for you. If a home addition is all you need to resolve your grievances, it is the best fix to restore comfort and functionality.

Consideration #2: Your “What”

The limits to a home addition are only tied to your imagination and what your local building ordinances allow. For example, if you have your own plot of land, it will be easier to approve that dream castle guest house. If you live in an Arizona neighborhood with an HOA that has homes close together, you need to get your plans for that extra garage approved to make sure that it’s within local guidelines. If you want more space, then we can help you.

At Republic West Remodeling, we have covered countless home addition projects that involved:

  • Master suites
  • Home offices
  • Extra bedroom(s)
  • Family rooms
  • Den expansions
  • Arizona rooms
  • Extra outdoor living space
  • In-law suites
  • Rental income spaces

A home addition often feels like a retrofit since it integrates with an existing structure. Homeowners should consider what kind of feel they want their addition to have. Do you want to make the addition echo the current design, or do you want to make it a “new” space with its color scheme and mood?

If you know what you want and are ready to expand your home’s potential and functionality, then talk to us about getting a home addition. We can also guide you toward a decision that works for your needs during a complimentary consultation.

Consideration #3: Your Budget

Home additions typically rank among the more expensive renovations because we’re adding a completely new structure onto your home. Building from the ground up requires the assistance of electricians, architects, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and more.

Our design and construction team works with a wide range of budgets and have created everything from luxury additions to cost-effective bonus rooms. Let us know your budget, and we’ll tell you how we can work with it. We have helped many clients expand their home’s space while staying within their desired budget.

Home Addition Examples

Republic West Remodeling has helped over 17,000 clients recreate their homes. We have conducted many home additions, wowing clients with the new look and function of their beloved home.

  • Damian’s Story: Our all-inclusive team was able to handle the major items in this room addition project, which included the structural load, framing, slab, footings, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing, insulation, tile, paint, trim, windows, and doors. A typical small renovation may include a fraction of these components, but Damian’s new addition necessitated a wealth of experience and knowledge to bring to life. We also stayed on schedule and budget with this project.
  • Debbie and Leon: We have recently helped this couple renovate a substantial part of their upstairs and downstairs. This two-phased project involved the expansion of their upstairs master suite and kitchen to achieve their ultimate vision of a functional home. The stunning results are of a visibly larger home equipped with a properly functioning HVAC system.

Through a room addition or expansion, both of these clients were able to make their existing home meet their current needs.
