Top Benefits of Home Additions in Des Moines

  • More Space: One of the most common reasons for a home addition is simply needing more space. Whether your family is growing, you need a home office, or you want an extra room for guests, an addition can provide the extra square footage you need.
  • Increased Home Value: A well-executed home addition can significantly increase the value of your property. It's a worthwhile investment, especially if you plan on selling your home in the future.
  • Improved Utility: An addition can improve the functionality of your home. This could mean adding a larger kitchen for your culinary pursuits, a sunroom for relaxation, or a playroom for your children.
  • Personalized Space: With a home addition, you have the freedom to customize the new space to your exact needs and preferences, whether that's a state-of-the-art home theater, a serene yoga studio, or a spacious master suite.
  • Avoiding the Moving Hassle: Moving is a long and expensive process that involves packing, hiring movers, changing addresses, and often higher costs. A home addition allows you to skip these inconveniences while enjoying a fresh change.
  • Room to Grow: An addition can provide the necessary space for a growing family or the accommodation of extended family members.

What Does the Home Addition Process Usually Entail?

  • Defining the Objective: Before anything else, it's crucial to clearly define what you want to achieve with your home addition. This could be creating more living space, adding value to your property, or enhancing your home's functionality.
  • Planning and Design: Once your goals are clear, the next step is to plan and design the addition. This typically involves working with an architect or designer to create a detailed blueprint that aligns with your vision and meets all local building codes and regulations.
  • Budgeting: A detailed budget should be established early in the process. This includes not only construction costs but also potential expenses for permits, inspections, and unexpected issues that may arise during construction.
  • Permits and Approvals: Before construction can begin, you'll need to obtain the necessary permits from your local building department. This often involves submitting your design plans for review to ensure they comply with local zoning laws and building codes. With Taylor Exteriors, our team will handle most of this step for you!
  • Construction: With your plans approved and permits in hand, the construction phase can begin. This starts with site preparation and foundation work, followed by framing, roofing, and exterior work. Then, the interior work begins, including insulation, drywall, flooring, and installation of fixtures and finishes.
  • Inspections: Throughout the construction process, various inspections will be required to ensure the work complies with local codes. This typically includes structural inspections, electrical inspections, plumbing inspections, and a final inspection upon completion of the work.
  • A Final Walkthrough: Once construction is complete and all inspections have been passed, you'll do a final walkthrough with the contractor to ensure everything has been done to your satisfaction.

Make sure that your home is equipped to meet your family’s growing needs with a little help from Taylor Exteriors. Call our Des Moines office at (515) 361-5562 or reach out to us online today to get started!
