Home additions are great because they address needs exactly, whether you’re looking to expand your living spaces with a new kitchen or throwing in a bathroom remodel to complement your grand project. But while they may be just the solution you need to solve your space problems, they have to be planned right to yield best results.
Here are a few tips for you to keep in mind before you build a home addition:
Think Twice Before Considering Very Low Bids
It’s always a good thing to save but bids that are too low are a bad sign. Although it won’t necessarily indicate a shady operation, it may mean that the contractor doesn’t fully understand what you want and is bidding based on a scaled-down idea of your vision. You wouldn’t want to get the lowest price for your project if it doesn’t guarantee quality workmanship.
Consider How Much Each Square Footage Will Cost
Building an addition can be a complicated home remodeling project. Make sure to compare contractor estimates on a dollar-per-square-foot basis so it’s easier to understand. Also, make sure that all your prospective contractors are bidding on the same thing, or your square footage cost comparisons will be all wrong.
Hire a Contractor You Can Work With
With a home addition, it’s essential to hire the right contractor. Take your own personality into consideration as you choose among your potential contractors. You don’t need to become good friends during this project since this is a business relationship, but it helps to have a contractor you can count on when you’re planning your next home improvement project.
