As a New Jersey Remodeling Contractor located in Bergen County NJ, there are always cases when while we are building Home Additions and Add a Levels the homeowners decide they want to add something to the project that they didn’t think of earlier and wasn’t on the plans.
Making sure you have thought about your home addition planning and layout can be tedious. Many times homeowners try to remember all the detail and planning during their NJ Home Addition or add a level but there are just to many factors involved and some items just remain left out or end up costing more to install later on during the building cycle.

Specializing in add a level house additions, one of the biggest add-ons that homeowners request are pull down attic access ways. This can easily be overlooked. Limited or attic storage with the cape cod style home, many homeowners don’t recognize the attic as a storage location because the attic space in most cape cod style homes is extremely limited to a crawl area or less. With a new add a level home addition, we try to build at least a 5′-6′ high attic standing area that can be used for storage and or utility placement. Having access to your new attic area would be a lot easier with the use of a pull down attic staircase that can fold up into the ceiling when not used.
Most home addition projects are overlook a central vacuum system. This would be a great time to have your central vacuum system set up due to the fact that your home remodeling project is underway and most walls throughout the home are wide open. It makes sense to have your central vacuum system installed now while you have a chance. When the walls are closed, it is nearly impossible to run the necessary interconnected tubing required throughout the home.
One of the biggest overlooked options for your NJ Home Remodeling are interior wall sound batt insulation barriers. It is standard for home construction to receive exterior wall insulation batts. Most homeowners don’t realize that they can install insulation on the interior walls as well. With a minimum batt insulation rating of R-11, you can install batt insulation as a noise and sound proofer. This works great when used around the interior bathroom walls to eliminate noise. Also with the increase of energy efficient homes, it is well worth the extra dollars spent to install batt insulation on all the other interior walls. This added insulation locks in the heating and cooling saving you a lot of money on your energy bill. The savings you realize on your heating and cooling bill will be made back in under 2 years or less. Pending the size of your home remodeling project.
