When people think of home remodels, they typically think in terms of rooms. The kitchen and bathroom are the two most popular rooms to remodel. VK Remodeling does not do solo bathroom, or kitchen remodels. Our specialty focuses on a large-scale approach. When you're investing in a complete home, remodel, or structural remodel, you need a different type of expertise. You need a team of experts that have the experience and knowledge of the complete design-build process that can take you from vision to something that looks and feels like a brand new home.
When you're thinking of adding a room, taking down a wall, or adding another story - you're thinking about a structural remodeling project. This is completely different from a cosmetic or light remodel, also sometimes known as a "pull-and-replace" remodel.
In a structural remodel where you wish to add a room or remove a wall, the builder will need to address the ability of your home to carry new, relocated, and/or additional loads creating when added onto the existing structure. The load-bearing capability of your home is factored into the design and construction of your project from the beginning.
A home addition is the perfect answer to the problem of needing more space. If you have a growing family, love your home, and don't want to go through the hassle of selling and buying a new home - a home addition can be just what you're looking for.
A conventional house addition is a multi-room structure that's built onto the side of your house. It's permanently open to your main house. When designed and built well, it blends into your original house. A house addition can include dining rooms, family rooms, bathrooms, guides, bedrooms, and primary bedrooms.
A room addition or bump out is a single room structure built onto the side of your existing house meant for a single function. A bump out is a smaller scaled version of a typical house addition and might just add an additional 50 square feet.
A sunroom is an addition to the side of your house and is usually to increase the living area space. Sunrooms can be closed off from the main part of your house with doors if you wish or left open.
A garage conversion is when a one or two vehicle attached garage is converted into a living space. Flooring is added, a ceiling is installed, and the garage door is replaced with a solid wall.
Once you decide that a remodel is the best solution, you'll have a lot of questions. VK Remodeling can answer all of your questions and walk you through the process. The first thing to find out is the viability of the structural remodel. If you want to add an additional floor to your existing home, a lot of variables go into determining if your current home structure can support the addition. The best way to get started is to call or email us and tell us what you're considering.
