The actual expense of adding on square footage to your home can be significant and is one of the “make or break” aspects of the decision for most families. The problem is many people think they can get a firm number on the phone before they actually commit to the project.
Calling around to various contractors and looking for the home addition costs per square foot can be a huge mistake. The reason is because many contractors are more than willing to throw you some numbers, but these numbers often don’t tell the whole story.
There are MANY variables that can go into the final price of your addition and they can cause your home addition costs per square foot to skyrocket before the project is finally finished.
First of all, you have to consider your existing home. Depending on the construction of your existing house, your new addition may cause significantly more or significantly less. It all depends on how easily your new space can be integrated into your old one.
The flooring may have to be upgraded, a wall may have to be knocked down, plumbing and electric may need to be upgraded, and more.
There is no real way to know the exact home addition costs per square foot unless a qualified contractor visits your home and performs a professional assessment. This is where Starcom Design / Build comes in.
