Consider a Home Addition by
One of most popular and well-used rooms in a
home can be an addition. Weather and
climate often prohibit us from spending time on our
patios or decks, but with an addition, you can enjoy
the sites and sounds of the outdoors with all the
comforts of being indoors.
Many homes have porches, patios or decks
that are easily converted into home additions.
Other homes are most often addition-ready. Either
way, Advance Remodeling can add an addition to expand
your space, and bring some of the outside in.
We do 2-3 season screen
additions, 3-4 season glass additions, and home
expansion additions. We can even install carpet,
electricity, ceiling fans and even heat to make
your addition useable all year long.
Home additions can add
new rooms or expand on existing spaces. Additions
give the opportunity to add a master bath spa to a
master bedroom, add a master bedroom where there
wasn’t an adequate room size, or add an entire floor
level to a home.
The opportunities are
endless when considering home additions. The first

space to finish your work at home?
Add a room to serve
as a home office. Sometimes it can be difficult
to designate a room in the home for work-related
activities. An addition can provide the
opportunity for an office in the convenience of
your own home.
Do you spend a lot
of time at the movies or enjoying local game rooms?
Think about adding a
media room to your home. Media rooms are
becoming popular because they offer a setting to
enjoy media entertainment and gather with
friends around a home bar or game table.
Does your kitchen
seem cramped and uninviting?
Building an addition
outward from the kitchen is a
great way to add space to design a new kitchen
layout and make room for the kitchen island that
you’ve always wanted.
There are many factors
to consider when making decisions regarding home
additions. It is important to think of home
additions in terms of their resale value.
Before seeking price
quotes from qualified home improvement contractors,

estate agent assess your home and property compared
with nearby homes to determine how much is too much.
Luckily, home additions
can create more space in almost any room in your
home or create a new room altogether! Market demand
