Don’t Move, Dormer and Extend Instead

If moving has been a topic of discussion in your household due to lack of space in your home, the experts at Center Island Contracting have the perfect solution. Why go through the process of finding a new home, selling your current home and moving, when you can dormer and extend instead?

Dormering can give your home the extra square footage you want, without the headache of moving. If you can’t build out, or don’t want to, adding a dormer is the best way to get more interior space. Dormer options range from adding a window to a room, to adding a bedroom or bathroom, all the way to adding an entire floor to the house. Depending on the existing structure of your home, there are a variety of dormers to choose from, such as Eyebrow, Gable, Shed and Hipped dormers. If all of these options sound like a foreign language to you, our design team at Center Island Contracting can help.

Is a dormer and extension the right plan of action for you and your family? There’s a long list of benefits associated with the decision to dormer and extend. The benefits of dormers and extensions are as follows:

• Increase the value of your home
• Turn your attic into livable square footage
• Add a bathroom, bedroom, office or large closet
• Window dormers can add natural light
• Increased square footage
• Cost is less than a full renovation/addition to the house
• Enhances aesthetic value of the home
• Dormers come in many shapes and sizes
