Sometimes, we just outgrow our houses. Maybe we have kids, move our parents into the spare bedroom or get a hobby that takes up a lot of space.

“The house is too small” is consistently the number one reason homeowners start to look for a new property (right up there with “it’s haunted” and “my neighbor plays the tuba” but we digress).

A need for more space, while understandable, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to buy a whole new house. For those of us who love our homes, our neighbors and our neighborhoods, finding another way to get the space we need without moving is a worthy goal.

With the right contractor and design, you can add an addition to your home that gives you the space you need, increases your home’s value and adds a beautiful, brand new room to the home you already love.

Check out these benefits to adding a home addition.

You Can Choose What You Want

Unlike buying a new house, adding an addition to your home allows you full power to customize, design and choose what you want.

Maybe you don’t need an extra bedroom, but you’d love a sunroom.

Maybe you want to transform your attic space into a playroom for the grand-kids or finally get that office space with built-in bookshelves.

You can choose the type of room you want to add, and you can choose where it goes (assuming it works with the overall structure of your house, of course). This is a power you just don’t have with an as-is new house.

If you’re attached to the idea of customizing and designing the extra space you need, a home addition might be the better choice for you.

Stratton Exteriors is proud to specialize in a variety of home additions, include second story additions, attic remodels, garage expansions, bedroom and office additions, sunrooms and more.

You Can Increase Your Home’s Value

Even if you don’t anticipate selling your home for several years, an addition can increase your home’s value for the moment when you do decide to sell.

Depending on which addition you choose, you could be looking at an impressive resale value where you recoup most of the money you spent on the addition. On top of increasing home value for eventual resale, you’ll get a beautiful new room to enjoy in the meantime…or for the rest of your life, depending on your plans.
