The Real Value of Home Additions
As families grow, their homes should as well. Unfortunately, your living room or kitchen can’t expand by itself. Home additions are the most common way to add extra space, and they also have major benefits for your long-term budget outlook. Let Dave Miller and Sons help you with your home addition needs in Orwigsburg, PA.
Improved Resale Value
In general, expanding your home can make it more attractive to future buyers. As long as you get licensed, insured contractors to do the planning and implementation, it’s likely your addition will return a higher asking price should you decide to sell someday. Home improvements may also increase curb appeal. For example, a side addition can make your home look bigger than the other residences on the block.
More Space to Enjoy Yourself
Home additions can give you more breathing room improve your quality of life. For instance, digging out a basement expansion that makes room for a den or adding a stylish deck complete with a barbecue pit. Home additions have great potential to give you room for everyday life, increased organization and a place to relax.
Reduced Ownership Costs
Once you have an addition in mind, don’t be afraid to combine additions with improvements that could increase energy efficiency. Things like new windows, fresh siding and layered roofing are all valued for their ability to reduce heating and cooling costs.
The cost-improving effects of your addition depend on whether your builder is experienced and knowledgeable. Anyone who works on your home should have a portfolio with examples of work similar to what you’d like to do. It’s critical that your builder is personally invested in seeing your project through completely.
