House additions

Just before you start building some garage additions, get informed. This will ensure that the work will be done smoothly and without any problems.


No matter the addition that you plan on building, you need to know if you will need a special building permit.

Check your neighbors and see if they have similar constructions. Ask for their advice concerning the problems that may appear on getting this permit.


After you have acquired the permit, be sure that the plan suits the space that you have available. Also it’s important to check if there are any restrictions concerning weight and also if you need to reinforce the structure and the terrain. Ask the advice of an architect.

Decide on the plan of the building. You may need two way entrances, or sound-proofing.


If you are concerned about the value thatthe new building will add to your home, you may calculate the investment and ask a specialist for the value that may be added. A real estate agent will be very helpful to inform you about the new construction. If the new building won’t add much value, ask him about the type of room that would add most value.


Most of the contractors and architects will give quotations free of charge. Get more than one quote and compare them and then make a decision. You need to make sure that they cover every aspect of the project and choose the one that is widely different from the rest of them.

When you hire a company make sure that it had other satisfied customers and then show them the written quote. Also the company needs to have insurance so that you will be covered in case the project doesn’t work as planned.
