By adding to indoor living space, room additions increase the selling value of the home. Before home improvement additions can begin the appropriate building permits need to be issued. From sunroom additions to adjoining a second or a third story to your home â€“ indoor space expansion is the new remodeling alternative to changing locations to bigger homes.

Building upwards than outwards is regarded as a much efficient method to expand on space. Attics provide the perfect opportunity to add a second or third story to your home without employing major structural changes. Due to the attic's position just above the habitable floor below, electricity and plumbing can be extended to the attic. To ensure that household members can safely access the new room addition, joists need strengthening and a sub-floor installed.
The construction phase of a home addition involves contractors, plumbers, electricians, and HVAC workers to build a safe structure that complies with specific building regulations. Contractors will first prepare a block concrete peripheral base on top of which the room addition will be built on. Framed walls, wall panels and a roof will be erected to protect construction from weather elements. Electricians, plumbers, and HVAC workers will set up the necessary infrastructure and ductwork to rid stale air and ensure a comfortable living environment. Walls will undergo moisture insulation and drywall treatment to follow with windows, floors and doors installation. After the relevant trim work has been conducted from baseboards, window trim, and crown molding - the designing phase can kick in full power to renovate the attic into a practical and attractive space that will lure in home traffic.
