Home Additions in Maryland

Need More Space? Consider a Home Addition!

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.

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.

Factors to Consider

Determine the Floor Plan

The opportunities are endless when considering home additions. The first step is to decide which type of addition would suit your needs. Ask yourself the following questions:

Do you need more room for a growing family?

An additional bedroom can provide needed room for families to grow into. Also, consider a major addition, such as a second floor, if your home is one story.

Do you need a relaxing space to retreat to where you can enjoy the outdoors?

Consider the addition of a sunroom. Sunrooms are a very popular option for home additions because they offer scenic views of the natural environment with the comfort of the indoors.

Would you like a 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.

The Property and Location

Consider how an addition will affect your homeowners’ insurance policy and property taxes when weighing the costs of an addition. Have the property surveyed to determine compliance with zoning and permit laws for building the addition.

The Neighborhood

Don’t over-remodel your home compared to the surrounding homes. There comes a point where additional home improvement projects no longer add value to your home. Have a professional real estate agent assess your home and property compared with nearby homes to determine how much is too much.

The Demand

Luckily, home additions can create more space in almost any room in your home or create a new room altogether! Market demand is high for master bedroom suites, exercise rooms, media rooms, home offices and bigger laundry rooms.

If your home doesn’t boast the extras that buyers want, consider an addition to create a desirable space for one or more uses.
