Is Summer a Good Time for a CT Home Addition?

By Your Fiderio Expert Jun 12, 2015

The summer time is great for any home remodeling project, but if you are looking to put CT additions onto your house the summer is ideal. Whether you are putting a small or large addition on your house, the summer offers the quickest time period to have it completed. But there are a few things you should know about home additions before you have one done.

What should I expect?

Modern CT home additions

Since most additions will be rooms that feature technology it helps to have modern infrastructure put in before the walls are installed. If you are placing an office, TV, or gaming system into your addition then it helps to have HDMI and Ethernet systems installed. Also it’s beneficial to have your smoke detectors or home security system hardwired before the walls and ceilings are installed so that they are minimally evasive.

Dust

Construction is a dusty profession and when putting an addition onto your house then some dust will make its way into your existing home. Especially if your addition is in a high traffic area then dust can be dragged into your home. There are a few precautions and questions you can ask your builder to take to minimize this. What helps cut down on dust the most is having the sections built outside and put together quickly. Also a barrier between your house and the new addition, such as a tarp, helps keep some of this dust from making its way in.

Delays

Every construction project is going to experience hang-ups so expect delays when you decide to have an addition put in. With the many steps that take place is the construction process delays are bound to happen. Although quickly solved, be patient with any hang-ups and develop a close relationship with your contractor.

Landscaping

Since an addition regardless of size requires a great deal of material and transportation there will be affects to your landscaping. Your addition will have to have a foundation placed so digging out and laying the foundation will do some damage to your yard. Having an addition put in in the summer helps give you the opportunity to regrow grass and plants so that your CT addition looks truly special.

A CT addition will add energy efficiency, value, and usable space to your home. The opportunity to upgrade and expand your houses space is truly great.
