3 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE A HOME ADDITION

by Landmark Construction Crew on August 3, 2018

Are you considering expanding your existing home in Los Angeles with a home addition? Home additions can add valuable functionality and square footage to your home, but only if you objectively evaluate your family’s needs and budget and choose the home remodeling contractor that has experience in the type of home addition you wish to add.

What and Why

Before you start the process of finding a home addition contractor in Los Angeles, determine the types of home additions you are considering and outline the reasons why you want them. For example, you may be torn between adding a living room addition and adding a bedroom addition. Your benefits for a living room addition might be that you’ll have increase family space and room to stretch out. You may also want to re-purpose your existing living room into another type of room, like a formal sitting room. For the bedroom addition, you may have a growing family and you wish to give each child their own bedroom. You may also want to create your own private master suite that’s separate from the other bedrooms in the house. Listing the benefits of each home addition type can help you determine which is best for you, your family and your lifestyle.

Budget

What’s your home remodel budget and/or how do you plan on paying for your home renovations? For many families’s the budget is going to determine the types of finishes. Someone with a lower budget may opt to forgo extra details, like built-in shelves, hardwood floors and custom lighting, or they may choose to install carpet and spend more money elsewhere in the room, like for a fireplace or additional half-bath. If you have a fairly large budget you may decide you need engineered hardwood floors, custom recessed lighting and a dedicated entertainment area with wiring for speakers, Internet and cable.

Choosing a Contractor

Once you’ve figured out the type of home addition you need and your budget, it’s time to choose a home remodeling contractor in Los Angeles. When you search for a home remodeling contractor, make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured, and that they perform the kind of home addition you need. You may even want to look up their BBB rating and schedule an in-person meeting or home estimate so that you can get to know the contractor before you officially hire them.
