What to Consider Before Remodeling Your Attic
Remodeling your attic is a bit different than your typical home addition or renovation. There are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, including:
First and foremost, with any remodeling and new construction project, it’s important to know what your local building codes allow. As your design/build contractor, we can walk you through all of the necessary steps to gaining permits for your project and determine if your home’s structures can support a usable attic space.
Electrical & HVAC
In order to heat and cool your new space, you will have to consider your options. Depending on the size of your home, you may be able to work off of your current HVAC system. It’s best to speak with an HVAC technician prior to your remodel to understand your options.
Consider how functional you want your new space to be. Will it mostly be for storage? Are you transforming it into a bedroom or guest area? Depending on how you plan to use the space may determine if you will need extra plumbing. If so, it’s best to have a new toilet, shower, or sink installed close to the main stack. A professional plumber can give you a better idea of what your options are in terms of remodeling.
In order to get into your new attic space, an entryway will be necessary. Consider the size of your home, and determine whether you’d like to install a full staircase, a spiral staircase, or consider outdoor access. Costs and design will vary depending on the type you choose. At our design consultation, our experts will go over all of your options and work with you to choose the best fit for your unique style and functionality.
