If you're feeling cramped in your current home but don't want to move, it may be time to consider a room addition by an experienced general contractor. There are many reasons you may be considering a room addition; maybe you've had a recent addition to the family, need a quiet office space so you can work from home, or simply want a beautiful new sunroom to enjoy leisurely family time. Whatever your reason, trust that the general contractor at John Schwartz Construction will complete your project in a professional and timely manner - and blow you away with the results.
There are two main types of room additions: building out and building up.
Building out typically involves adding a room at ground level, and is the most common type of room addition request. This option increases your home's footprint, but may decrease your yard or property space. There is a chance you will need to consider zoning laws, as you will have to pour a new foundation.
Building up is a method of adding space to your home without increasing the footprint. In this type of addition, the room addition is on the second story; in fact, there are many instances in this type of expansion where we turn single story homes into two story homes! There is a chance the general contractor will have to reinforce the strength of your current foundation in preparation for the extra weight. You will also have to add a staircase to your home.
