Home Extensions

The decision to add an extension to your home may be a tough, but a necessary one. Perhaps your family has increased, or you are feeling crammed with the space you currently have, a home extension will certainly solve the problem.

Do you need a permit?

Before starting your project, you will want to ensure that you’ve taken the necessary measures where the legality of extending your home is concerned. Contact the local authorities, submit the necessary paperwork, and do not proceed until you have gotten the required permits. By doing so, you’ll make certain that you are staying on the right side of the law and that your project does not come to a halt because the renovations were not approved by the responsible officials.

You will then want to have an architect go over a design with you, determine if there are any amendments that need to be made to the foundation and also help you to decide on how big or how small your home extension should be.

Knowing what will sell

Though your renovations need to be done to suit you, it can’t hurt to consider if it will also be attractive to those who are interested in your neighborhood. There may come a time when you wish to sell your home, and it would be less than ideal if potential buyers are turned off from your home because your the extension you made to your house does not fit what they are looking for in a home. To ensure that your extension meets the standard of what is popular in today’s market, consult with a real estate agent and get a second opinion on your decision. In the future, if you wish to sell, having followed the sound advice of a specialist you can ensure that your home will have a great chance of getting sold when put on the market.

Who to hire

Rather than trying to tackle your home extension as a do it yourself project, hire the necessary professionals to get the job done. This may save you a lot of money in the long run as you can be certain that they know what they are doing, and will do the job without trial and errors.
