HOW TO PREPARE FOR A HOME ADDITION IN MONTOGOMERY, AL & SURROUNDING AREAS
When deciding what you want in your room or home addition, consider what you will be using the space for. What elements could you add to make it a functional space for its intended use? Could you add a fridge space if it's a family room addition? Could you add a murphy bed if it's an added office space to make it multifunctional?
Where can you live temporarily while your addition is being completed? Sometimes walls or apart of the roof could be missing.
How can we match external materials like brick?
Alabama Construction Pros can help you with all of these things and more! We want to give you a fresh and functional space that will last you for years to come.
PLAN YOUR ROOM ADDITION
A lot of though and planning goes into a room addition. We've included some important considerations below that will help you think through aspects of a room addition.
Climate control is the top priority when adding on to your home, especially if you are doing an expansion that goes beyond the basement. This includes heating and air conditioning to ensure the space is livable and comfortable. Establishing climate control can be a big cost driver for this project, so it’s important to consider all the variables that will impact the intensity of this work. One of these variables is a lack of crawl space if expanding past the basement, leading to a need for excavation or dig downs.
If you are planning on adding an addition to your home, it is important to factor in the cost of plumbing and electricity. Depending on where the addition is being built, and what existing structures are nearby, plumbing and electricity may need to be completely built from scratch. This may require a need for excavation, which will add cost and time.
There can be a lot of red tape when it comes to home additions, so it's important to be aware of the specific rules and limitations for your municipality. For example, a historic home may have different setback requirements than a newer home, or an addition may need to be designed in a specific way to work with the existing structure. It's also important to check on easements and other potential restrictions before starting construction.
