How To Prepare For Your Upcoming Home Additions

What To Consider When Preparing
For Your Plymouth Home Addition

Understanding The Ins And Outs
Of Building A Home Addition

Choosing to add a home addition to your Plymouth house is a huge investment and one that should be celebrated.

Whether you’re planning on using the space as an extra bedroom, a home gym, a children’s playroom, or as a separate apartment with its own bathroom and kitchenette, a home addition adds property value and increased quality of life.

But as exciting as a home addition is, it requires a lot of planning. What kind of home addition are you seeking? After all, more extensive plumbing work is required if you’re adding an extra bathroom rather than an extra bedroom, necessitating a higher budget.

What about your property lines? You don’t want to start your home addition only to find out you’re encroaching on your neighbor’s property.

At Executive Remodeling, we ensure that your home addition is done exactly as it should be, with premium materials, first-class installation, and seamless integration into your existing floor plan.

Let’s take a look at the essential considerations when preparing for your upcoming home addition.

Step 1: Plan Out Your Budget And Secure
Financing For Your Home Addition

It’s important to go over your budget and secure financing before work begins – that way, everything will fall into place much more smoothly.

Decide whether you want a luxury remodel, complete with high-end fixtures and details, or if you can get by with an average or basic remodel with stunning, durable materials that are built to last.

Your budget will depend on the type of home addition you want, as home additions vary in cost. Make sure to budget for the unexpected.

Step 2: Before Starting Your Home
Addition, Find Your Property Lines

No homeowner wants to begin their beautiful new home addition only to infringe on their neighbor’s property.

Understanding and knowing exactly where your property lines are is essential before beginning your home addition.

Knowing where your property lines are helps you understand the space you have to work with. It also gives you a head start on designing your home addition.

Step 3: Get To Work Designing Your Home Addition

Start with your current floor plan by using a blueprint and work from there. See how much square space you’ll need for your home addition.

Determine which walls you want to bump out for your home addition and what utilities you’ll need, such as plumbing if it’s a breakfast or kitchen addition.

A professional designer will help you through this process and consider factors such as square footage, required utilities, layout, and more.

At Executive Remodeling, we’re a full-service design-build firm, and we include design services in our remodeling packages. Our design experts will not only determine the logistics of your home addition but also the visuals. They’ll work with your personal style to help you craft the perfect home addition.

Step 4: Find The Right Contractor For
Your Plymouth Home Addition

Finding the right contractor means the difference between a seamless home addition that enhances your quality of life and having an unsatisfactory job that you’ll need to pay more to fix. Know what to look for in a contractor, such as:

  • Positive feedback from past clients
  • An extensive, impressive portfolio
  • Commitment to their customers
  • Straightforward pricing

At Executive Remodeling, we put our customers first. With our shining reputation for excellence, your home addition is in good hands when you choose us.

Step 5: Choose The Materials For Your Home Addition

With a plethora of options at your disposal, choosing your materials can be simultaneously exciting and overwhelming. If you plan to add an extra bedroom, you’ll have to select a flooring material, such as hardwood, carpet, or vinyl.

If you’re adding a bathroom, you’ll need to consider the materials for flooring, countertops, fixtures, and more.

High-traffic areas, such as kitchens, need durable, easy-to-clean flooring to function smoothly and last a long time. Likewise, carpet may look great for a bedroom, but the upkeep might not be something you want to deal with.

Materials vary in cost, so you’ll need to consider your budget when picking out the perfect materials for your dream home addition.
