Home Addition Tips and Ideas
Depending on the type of addition that you are considering, there are a few important factors for which you’ll need to be prepared. For example, homes with a septic system will have to follow local “perc” guidelines in order to add bathrooms or bedrooms. Perc tests exist to ensure that the septic system can accommodate the addition of a new bathroom, kitchen or laundry facility. Another example could be evaluating the existing structural integrity – like the weight-bearing capacity of a set of walls – before adding second-floor rooms. Be sure to work with licensed and insured experts who know the local building codes. The team at Golden Rule Builders will gladly walk you through the process of doing a home addition in Fairfax, Virginia.
Budgeting for Home Addition Costs
Because of the broad spectrum of possibilities associated with a home addition, there aren’t any singular factors that most impact the cost. Some additions may require foundation work or concrete slabs. Most home additions involve extending or adding an area to the roof, but some may also require removal of existing portions of a roof. A large enough addition may require its own HVAC system. The simplest way to think of budgeting for an addition is this: the more change there is to the existing building, and the larger the space is that is being added, the more you’ll need to budget for your home addition.
