Many homes in Fairfax County, as well as in the city of Fairfax, have attics. However, they are for the most part old, cramped, and unusable. Now imagine turning all that wasted attic space into living space! You would immediately increase the value of your home by a very large amount, which is great, but better still you will also have a much greater space in which to live!
As an attic addition contractor, Fairfax, VA, Elite Contractors Services has undertaken many such attic conversions to the delight of the homeowners who now have a very large additional room and space that can be used for a variety of purposes. Increasing the value of your home is wonderful, but only really has any benefit when you come to sell.
The immediate benefit of using an attic addition contractor, Fairfax, VA, is that you can use the room as a home office, a guest room, an extra living room, a games room (some people rush out and buy a pool table), a hobbies room, a music room, or just a place to get away from the kids when you need a break! Whatever floats your boat, as the saying goes.
Things To Take Into Consideration
There are a few things to take into consideration when thinking about an attic conversion. For instance, what about the headroom? Most attics have sloping roofs, so you may want to raise the height of the ceiling. Ensuring that the attic floor is strong enough to handle the extra traffic is of vital importance. In addition, if you do want to install a pool table, or even a snooker table, you are going to add a considerable amount of weight. It may also be necessary to add an additional staircase from the lower floor or install an extra doorway. All of these things need to be thought about when considering an attic addition.
What about windows? Gable windows are the least expensive, but for a charming addition to your home you could consider installing dormer windows. Depending on the way your home faces, you might also consider a wide expanse of windows – or even skylights – turning your attic into a room where you can sunbathe whatever the weather. You could also include a balcony where you can sit outside with a cool drink while the sun goes down.
