Every house needs to go through some type of remodeling sooner or later. No matter how well built it was, our homes are still prone to the action of the unstoppable time. Sometimes, renovations are simply about upgrading kitchens or bathrooms, or finishing the basement. Other times it involves home additions.
When a home’s living space expands by building an addition, you need to pay attention to the potential structural problems. Your house was planned to be just the way it is. A home addition brings extra weight, which may trigger many problems in the future if Georgina home additions are not handled by experienced contractors.
Home additions need to be properly designed to blend in with the existing design. In addition, you need our Certified contractors to assess the structural impact of your new addition. The foundation of the new addition needs to be properly constructed and jointed to the older foundation. This may entail footings placed at the right depth, steel reinforcement in the right quantity, and all the necessary gravel and drainage tile to keep water away from the foundation.
When your Keswick home additions involve new flooring, the structural aspects need even more attention. A new story comes with a lot of weight on the structure of your house, which was not designed to withstand that extra weight. It is not that your house was not properly designed initially. It was designed for its current functionality and not for the changes that you intend to make.
Only professional contractors can properly assess the current state of your foundation or floor framing. They have the workmanship to implement any potential consolidation measures. Also, they have the knowledge to adequately join new home additions in Keswick with minimum impact on the current structure. Our contractors will also offer a fair and competitive price scheme so that your home addition is a success in all respects.
