What is a GPI Builder?
A GPI Builder are builders that specialise in making additions and alterations to homes. GPI Builders can make improvements to your home in several ways, including roofing and siding replacements, plumbing repairs, additions and even structural changes. Our experienced builders will provide you with high-quality work at a fair price.
What is a home addition?
It has the potential to make your house more practical. When adding an addition to your home, however, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
- First things first, check to see if the new addition will work with the framework that is already there. Your home’s roof or external walls could sustain damage if the addition is too large or too heavy for the space it occupies.
- Second, before beginning any job, be sure that all of the necessary documentation and permits have been taken care of.
- Third, make sure that the right amount of money is allocated in the budget for the addition. It is important to ensure that you have adequate money saved up before adding a house addition of any kind.
What is the difference between remodeling and home additions?
Remodeling is the process of altering or updating a building, structure, or object to improve its function or appearance. Home additions are any additions made to an existing home, including new construction, remodeling, and repair.
Remodeling typically costs less than home additions because it does not require the purchase of land or the demolition of an existing structure. Remodeling can also be more extensive, covering everything from installing new floors and walls to replacing windows and doors.
The main difference between remodeling and home additions is that remodeling usually entails only superficial changes to a property, while home additions may involve substantial reconstruction or renovation. For this reason, if you are considering renovating your bathroom instead of adding on a new one, consider remodeling it instead. This will save you both money and time.
Here we have four stunning additions you could make to your beautiful home !
1. A new enclosed porch
Before going all out on an extension, it is important to make sure that the architectural integrity of your home, both inside and out, will not be compromised in any way. A reputable builder will know how to keep the home’s original lines and exterior style while making a new enclosed porch seem like it was built from the beginning.
2. A sunroom
A sunroom is an extension that is attached to the side of the house and is typically used as an additional living area. Doors are the conventional means by which sunrooms can be separated from the rest of the house while not in use.
Sunrooms are typically erected on the property and made of prefabricated materials such as aluminium and thermally resistant glass. This is because sunrooms are typically less in size than full-scale additions. Stick-built sunrooms are constructed using the same timber, concrete, and other materials that are used to construct the home itself. This method of construction results in a well-built living area that is visually consistent with the existing house.
3. A DADU (Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit)
Even though it isn’t connected to the main house in any way, a detached accessory dwelling unit (also known as a granny pod, granny flat, backyard cottage, tiny house, guesthouse, carriage house) can be thought of as an extension of the main house in terms of both size and functionality.
4. Attic/Basement conversion
Converting existing unfinished space in a basement or attic into usable living space can be one of the most cost-effective methods to add usable space to your house, despite the fact that it is not strictly an “addition” because it does not enlarge the actual footprint of your home. Moreover, this extension project is one of the extremely rare examples in which the original investment is fully recovered by an increase in the value of the real estate.
However, in order to turn an attic or basement into a living space that is acceptable under building codes, the room in question must fulfil particular structural requirements. To be able to support the structural loads of active living spaces, the ceiling height needs to be adequate, and the structures of both the floor and the ceiling need to meet the specifications set forth by engineering.
