Questions to Ask Yourself Before Adding to Your Home
At BC&I, we understand that home additions, irrespective of the scale or size of the add-on, are a serious investment and should be considered carefully by you. The reality of the situation is that home additions can be expensive and can also require some upheaval to you and your family. So, before you decide to invest in our home additions, you should really consider these following questions closely:
How Much Do You Want to Spend?
Perhaps the most important question that you need to ask yourself before deciding whether to invest in a home addition or not is how much you want to spend. While we at BC&I, always strive to keep our prices as competitive as possible, the fact of the matter is that depending on the scale of the room, an average addition can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000. However, if you feel like that this is an investment that you are willing to make, then our team can get to work on creating a plan that best meets your home’s needs and your budget.
Are There Any Building Restrictions to Worry About?
The short answer to this question is generally yes. However, the particular restrictions that apply to your home will most likely vary depending on which Baton Rouge neighborhood you are based in. The best way of finding out which rules and restrictions apply to apply to your home is by contacting your city or county offices. They should be able to provide you with a breakdown of the specific rules in your area.
Would a Remodel Work Better for You Than an Addition?
The reality is that most home additions will cost you a serious chunk of change. So, if you feel that your money would be better spent on a more affordable option, then a remodel could be worth considering. However, it must also be noted that a home addition can also greatly increase the re-sale value of your home and may very well end up being a worthwhile investment for your property. However, if you have a basement or attic that isn’t being used, then perhaps that is an option that you could consider looking into rather than jumping straight into a home add-on.
Do You Want to Build Up or Out?
The answer to this question is very much dependent on your individual circumstances and how much money you want to spend on your project. The reality is that building up can save you money as it does not require excavation or foundation work. However, it should also be noted that adding up will most likely require an architect as it can be more complicated than staying on the ground. If you decide to build out, then a detached addition could end up saving you thousands of dollars. These add-ons which are often used as garages, guesthouses and home offices can be a perfect way of adding on to your Baton Rouge home without breaking the bank!
Why Build Onto Your Home?
Extending the square footage of your property offers many benefits! If you’ve been imaging what your home might look like with a few extra rooms, there’s no better time than now to get the ball rolling.
Provides Additional Space
If your home is starting to feel a bit cramped, there’s no need to start looking at real estate postings just yet. With a home addition from BC&I, all the space you need can be created for you.
Helps You Avoid A Stressful Move
Not only is moving an unpleasant experience, it’s an expensive one. From real estate fees to the cost of hiring a moving company, the price tag can creep up before you know it. A home addition allows you to avoid the stress of moving by creating the perfect space for you in the home you already have. What are you waiting for?
Increases Home Value
Home additions can substantially increase the value of your home. By turning a two bedroom house into a three bedroom one, or by adding a self-contained apartment on the property, your home’s value will soar.
How Do Home Additions Work?
Before we get to work adding on to your home, BC&I will sit down with you to discuss the details of the project. By making sure everyone is on the same page before things move forward, we can guarantee client satisfaction when all is said and done.
Once the plan has been finalized and all the necessary permits obtained, we mobilize our team and construction begins. As licensed general contractors, we are able to take care of everything in house. You don’t have to worry about keeping track of multiple companies—with us, everything is handled under one roof.
For home additions, you aren’t limited to bedroom space, either. If you’ve been dreaming of adding a dedicated space for entertaining, get in touch with us! We would be happy to discuss whatever you have in mind, and draw up some plans.
