It’s Time. Let’s Get ‘er Done!

If you are considering adding a Room Addition to your existing home, then you are at the right place. Whether it is a one story Addition or a second floor Room Addition, American Housing Remodeling, Inc. has the experience, expertise and the professionalism it takes to guide you through every stage of your project from concept to completion.

Once you decide you want to add that room, you will have three important decisions to make. First, you will have to decide what it is you want to do, second, you will have to decide how much you are going to spend, and third, you will have to decide on a contractor.

The first part is actually the fun part and that is deciding on what kind of room addition you want to add to your home. Whether it be a bedroom, bathroom, family room or an entire second story, you should remember that you may eventually want to sell your home and that potential buyers will probably compare your home to new ones being built. Therefore, you may want to look at some of the design trends and amenities being included into some of the new homes being built today.

Now comes the part that is not quite as much fun and that is trying to figure out how much money you will need for your project and where the money will come from. When figuring costs, you can use a square foot price of about $125 for first floor room additions and about $185 for second story room additions, but this is for estimating purposes only. It is not really practical to use a square foot price when figuring costs because there are always so many factors that have to be taken into considering that will affect the actual price, but it will at least give you a general idea. As for where the money will come from, only you can determine that. If you do not have enough cash, then you will have to consider some type of loan and we can help you in deciding what type of loan is best for you.

One more thing to consider when deciding on how much you want to spend for your project is your home’s value in relation to your neighborhood. The general rule of thumb is that any remodeling project that brings your home up to the level of your neighbors’ is a worthy investment. It doesn’t always pay to be the most expensive home on the block and many real estate experts recommend that a remodeling investment should not raise the value of your home to more than 10-15% above the median sales price in your neighborhood.

Next, you will have to decide on a building contractor. Hmmm! Now this is where it gets tricky because there are two roads you can take here. You can take the high road, or that other road. You will need to select a contractor that you feel confident will do your job right. At first you may be tempted to find that guy who works out of the back of his truck, or maybe that guy who may or may not have a valid builders license, or maybe that guy who may or may not have the proper insurances, or maybe that guy who is hurting so badly for work that he will be willing to do your job at a really, really “good” price. Of course, you know that a really, really, “good” price actually means a really, really, “cheap” price, and a really, really “cheap” price is the prescription for a “dream” home project to turn into a “nightmare” home project. This is your home and only you can decide which fork in the road to take here.

So, when deciding on which contractor to use, you want to select someone you feel comfortable with, someone you can communicate with and someone you know you can work with throughout the entire project.

You will want a quality contractor with a Florida State builder’s license, a contractor who is a member of the Better Business Bureau and a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and you will want a contractor who is fully licensed and insured. You will want to find a contractor who has a history of doing quality work at a fair price, a contractor with a proven track record and a contractor who will provide you with a ten year structural warranty. After all, this will be one of the most important decisions you will ever make regarding your home and American Housing Remodeling prides itself on being a “dream” maker, not a “nightmare” maker. We are the “Dream Catchers” of the Tampa Bay Remodeling industry and we will capture your “dream” of what you want your home to be and make it a reality.

Once you have made the very wise decision to use American Housing Remodeling as your remodeling contractor, we will walk you through the entire process from beginning to end. We will explain the permitting process, how inspections work, how and when material will be delivered and how the work schedule will progress. All of these concerns, along with any other concerns you may have, will be addressed so you will know exactly what to expect throughout the entire project.

More and more Tampa Bay area families are deciding to improve their existing home rather than move because they, like many people in today’s times, realize that they can have the home of their “dreams,” without having to move. It means you won’t have to give up your neighborhood, your neighbors, your friends or the schools your children attend.

Once the decision has been made, it is time to contact American Housing Remodeling, Inc.  America is on the move again and if you have been considering adding that extra room on to your home, it is time for you to make that commitment now. It is time for you to get started. It is time to call 727-546-6611 and say “Let’s get er done!”
