Adding custom home additions can give you that extra space you have been looking for. When J.R.Heald Builders adds to your home it does not just add an individual piece but enhances the whole home.

The addition should blend seamlessly with the current architecture and style of your home. A custom addition should complement the home and not take over as its own structure. Easy to say – not always easy to do.

Some of the most popular additions consist of:

  • Family rooms
  • Sun rooms
  • Garages

To make the entire structure seamless it is always recommended to consider updating windows, siding and roofing for the entire home if needed.

Steps For Custom Home Additions

Looking to get started? Have a look at the steps to getting it done right with J.R Heald Builders:

  • Find a reputable designer/architect.
  • Come up with a plan that works for you, the client, both in use of space and budget.
  • Get a contract for the work.
  • Make important choices. This might include tile/flooring, windows, siding, etc. These items will need to be ordered ahead. The sooner you know these things, the smoother the process should go.
  • Ready, set, go! Build, build build.
  • Checking in via email, phone or face-to-face meetings throughout this process are important to ensure the contractor and client are on the same page.

Sit back and enjoy your new addition!
