3 Questions to Ask before Starting a Home Addition

Adding new space to your Novi home is an exciting endeavor. Maybe you’ve wanted a four-season room to enjoy all year long or a home office area separate from the rest of the house. DJL Builders Inc. works with families throughout the Novi area, helping them with their individual room addition projects. We recommend asking these three questions before you begin work on your home.

3 Questions to Ask Before Starting a Home Addition

1. What Is My Budget?

Most of our clients have a budget in mind when thinking of adding on to their homes. If your budget is flexible, you have some freedom when making room addition decisions, like the quality of materials or the size of your new space. For limited budgets, you may want to consider the type of space you need the most in your home. Do your family members visit and need a guest bedroom and bathroom? Do you want to expand your kitchen to include a large island, a roomy pantry, and an eat-in space? We are happy to work with your particular budget and build a space that still fits your needs.

2. Will This Be a DIY Project or Will I Hire a Contractor?

You can complete a room addition as a DIY project or hire a professional contractor. If you have a construction background, you most likely have the skill and knowledge to complete the addition or build to a certain point and hire someone to do the rest. If you’re unsure where to start, we recommend hiring a contractor. DJL Builders Inc. has over 25 years of construction experience and works with homeowners on various projects, including room additions. 

3. How Can I Find an Honest & Reliable Contractor?

One of the best ways to find a reliable contractor is to talk with family or friends. They can share their individual experiences, including what they liked or why they would choose differently in the future. Local home improvement websites and review websites, like Yelp or Google, are also valuable resources for finding reputable contractors in the Novi area.
