Home Improvement: 3 Common Room Addition Oversights March 20, 2017

Home Improvement: 3 Common Room Addition Oversights, High Point, North Carolina

One of the most involved home improvement projects you can take on is the addition of a brand new room to your house. You want your expansion to live up to all of your expectations, but there are lurking pitfalls that can lead to disappointment. Turner Remodeling wants to share three common issues that can arise, and how to avoid any setbacks in your addition project.

Room Addition Oversights That Can Derail Your Home Improvement Dreams

1. Incorrect Expansion of the Foundation

Possibly the most common problem that homeowners run into when adding new areas to their dwellings, an improper adjustment to your foundation can cause serious structural issues. When you’re building out and away from your existing footprint, you need to pour more foundation to support the new room or rooms. This needs to be level with the rest of your foundation and properly secured, or else settling and cracking can lead to damage and instability down the line.

2. Problems With Wiring & Plumbing

Home ImprovementIf you don’t want to be sitting in the dark in your new addition, you’ll need to have the area fully wired for electricity. Likewise, a new living space that’s meant to include bathrooms or even a kitchen will need to have the right pipes and fixtures to allow for plumbing. Incomplete or badly executed work can make your added space difficult or impossible to use for its intended purpose until the problem is fixed. Make sure the job is done right the first time to avoid added stress.

3. Hiring the Wrong General Contractor

As with any home improvement project, the end result can only be as good as the people you choose to bring it to life. Research potential contractors thoroughly; be sure to view examples of their work and hear from former clients. Always speak in-depth with the contractor to ensure you’re on the same page before making your final choice.
