Extending your home with a sunroom, game room, or other exterior fixture can add value to the home; with this in mind, it is not something you can simply do without thinking about, or planning for. From the costs, to hiring the right team of specialists, there are a number of factors a homeowner has to consider, to ensure the job is done right.

1. Cost
This is probably the biggest consideration any homeowner has to account for. Depending on what you are adding to the home , the size of the extension, and the fixtures (luxury or basic, types of walls, flooring, etc), costs can greatly fluctuate. So before you do take on this job, make sure you have a budget in place, to ensure you can afford the cost. Before planning an extension I would recommend getting some quotes from a local builder who can give you a house extension quote.

2. Time / drawbacks for work
The time it will take to build the extension should also be accounted for. Especially if you are going to have to leave the home, or if it is a very busy/loud job that is being completed. You also have to consider drawbacks (in terms of time setbacks, as well as additional costs), to ensure you know what to expect as the additions are added to your home.

3. Who to hire
Do you want to hire a specialist, or any local contractor/company in the area? Depending on the type of addition, in many cases you can hire a company that will do the work for less; but, in some instances, you want to hire the best people for the job. So make sure you compare a few companies, to hire the best people for the job.

When time comes to do work on the home, including things such as adding an addition/entire room to the home, these are some things to keep in mind prior to beginning the job around your home.
