When people ask us what are the most popular home improvement projects, we confidently reply that home additions are. We claim that home additions bring the best return on investment. In addition, home additions and extensions make homes better and more comfortable place to live in. When doing home renovation, people tend to do things, that improve their lives and brings more value to their property.
In particular adding bathrooms and kitchen space are the most common home additions. These are the place where we spend much of our most precious times. Older houses usually have small kitchens and dining areas, so addition is the best solution. Room additions also frequently provide new bedrooms, home offices and even extra garage. Home additions are sometimes built to boost storage capacity. Need a beautiful glass room or deck? Additions is a right decision!
There are two types of home addition projects available, so you can pick the one suits you more. First type is horizontal extension of the main floor, which includes extra room built on free available space (backyard or driveway). This involves extension of the basement as well. However, for the majority of house additions, it requires a sensible strategy. Most of sites, especially in the GTA, have very limited and tight area and are unsuitable for a horizontal expansion. Sometimes it is be better to build up instead. Some homeowners prefer second story additions to keep more outdoor space or to gain privacy for bedrooms. In this case, main floor structure has to be strengthen in order to hold a new construction. You also might get the needed space by raising certain portions of the roof.
