Renovations Made Easy

If you’re looking for extra living space, consider an attic remodel. It’s a great way to increase your home’s value by finishing a pre-existing space.
Who is the attic remodel for?
If you’re planning on selling your home, don’t over-specialize the attic. While a finished attic is a nice bonus for many prospective home buyers, some won’t have any idea what to do with it if it’s designed too much for one person. A seller’s finished attic should have as broad an appeal as possible – an extra bedroom or living area with a neutral design. On the other hand, if you’re remodeling a home you planning on staying in, feel free to make it match your needs.
If you’re looking to sell your home, a finished attic has the same appeal as a finished basement.
Prospective homeowners are looking for the most usable floor space they can get. A finished attic adds an entire extra story to your house. It has extra appeal to those considering potential renovations – if the attic is already finished, that’s one project they won’t have to worry about.
The biggest benefit an attic renovation has over an extension is that the space is already there.
Adding an extension is a big undertaking that eats into the available square footage on your lot — space you might not want to give up. Your attic is already on top of your house, likely just gathering dust. With some renovation, you can get some use out of that empty space. Consider the attic the same way you would an unfinished basement — as an empty canvas, ready for painting.
