Adding a Dormer

Maximize Your Living Quarters with a Dormer Addition

Do you have a college student that comes home on the weekends or do you host frequent out of town visitors? In most cases, many homes have an underdeveloped space that is just waiting to be used properly. As a homeowner, you may not always know of your home’s untapped potential for space, but the trained eye of a licensed general contractor can help you build a dormer addition that can maximize your living space, as well as create a comfortable environment for guests.

A dormer addition allows for many different space-saving options. When thinking about how to make a dormer work for you, consider what elements are most important for your living environment. A general contractor can help by presenting you with a variety of design options that would provide you with the most value and use out of your dormer addition. A general contractor can also create a living environment that serves as a multi-use area: perhaps, an area of your home for visitors to recuperate after traveling, which then later doubles as a home office.

As with many home improvement projects, there is always a potential for unexpected issues for the novice designer. Some commonly overlooked, but important, aspects of adding a dormer addition could be insulation, additional electrical wiring, or additional plumbing. Unexpected design problems can become costly and frustrating. The best way to make sure there are no costly and unwanted design issues is to hire a general contractor. A general contractor can identify problem areas and maintain a realistic design of your dormer addition.
