When you can’t imagine leaving the home you love, consider a beautiful addition. From a single new room to a whole new story, we’ll help make your home sweet home even sweeter.
Home Additions Add Value and Improve Livability
Building new home additions often presents issues that, to an average homeowner, may appear virtually insurmountable. Fortunately, a quality contractor is often able to present options the property owner hadn’t thought of. Building up and building out are two common solutions for gaining living space, but they aren’t always the only options available. Some homes were poorly designed initially and don’t make good use of the home’s square footage. If a redesign of the existing space will resolve the homeowner’s space issues, that is an option that should be considered. At Icon Building Group, we don’t simply present the easiest remodeling solution. We work with homeowners to truly understand their needs and then explore the various possible solutions. Once an option is selected, we discuss the project process with each client so everyone understands what will be happening as the remodeling progresses.
Developing a Plan
Since remodeling is often a complex procedure, we construct detailed plans to make sure we’re covering all the construction bases and, at the same time, will end up with what the homeowner envisions. Because all remodeling plans seem to become more complicated as existing walls, floors and ceilings are accessed, we routinely anticipate problems with home additions. To prevent unnecessary panic, we’ll discuss potential issues ahead of time so clients are prepared to deal with any issues that manifest themselves during the project. When remodeling newer homes that haven’t seen prior renovations, problems are minimal. However, older homes frequently have hidden surprises everyone needs to be prepared for. Our home remodeling planning team tries to anticipate possible issues, and the Icon Building Group is ready to handle any surprises found during a remodeling project.
Next, since every remodeling job is unique, we take all the time necessary to pick the materials, appliances, and fixtures that will be needed for the project. Everything from trim products to plumbing fixtures is carefully selected to make sure the client’s vision becomes a reality. While budget constraints might require some concessions, our team works to make sure the best products available are selected while still staying on budget.
While the Work is in Progress…
Additions complicate the lives of a home’s residents. While a major remodeling project can require the home’s occupants to find other accommodations temporarily, smaller projects may allow residents to stay in the home during the construction process. It’s always a good idea to discuss the pros and cons of remaining in the home during a project with the team from Icon Building Group. If it is possible to remain on site during the project, it will still be necessary to consider how the comings and goings of the workers and deliveries will complicate life.
The End is Near
During the project, our team will communicate regularly with the property owner to make sure everyone is on the same page with how the project is progressing. If any issues arise, they will be carefully explained and the homeowner will be given options to consider before the construction team takes any actions. When the project is nearing completion, the project manager will walk through the property with the homeowner to make sure everything is completed properly and the homeowner’s questions are fully answered.
Home Additions can add value and, at the same time, make an existing home more pleasant for the occupants. We take pride in delivering a quality product and making sure all projects meet or exceed our client’s expectations. Our team is ready to discuss your project and take the steps needed to make your dreams a reality. To get started, contact us today.
Custom Home Additions & Remodeling
Boredom with the current situation can happen to all of us; especially when it comes to our homes. However, with an expansion or addition, that boredom can soon be turned into excitement. As a homeowner, there comes a time when you know every inch of your home; every crack, every design on the wall, every shade of wall paint in every room, every fitting and every accessory. When such a time arrives, you may start to feel that it is the perfect time to add a touch of something new to your environment. Sometimes it can be as simple as adding a new rug or wall decoration, but other times, it can be as complex as doing a complete home addition and rehab job.
At Icon Building Group, we understand that when you want to remodel your home, you want quality and care that will last a lifetime, and you should be able to understand the process and expected outcomes from your remodeling project. This is why we strive to ensure that we work hand in hand with our clients to produce the best possible results for their needs.
We do understand that it takes a lot more than simply presenting our clients with a simple remodeling solution, which is why we go through a full development phase to work out a quality plan to follow. We take a look at all the positive and possible negative effects that the project may bring, and look for ways to make it a complete success.
We do all of this because we have a clear understanding of what a good remodeling project entails. The moment you re-enter your home for the ‘first’ time after the new home addition and remodeling is done, you will be excused for thinking that you have entered someone else’s home!
