Chicago Home Additions
With over ten years of experience building custom home additions in the Chicago area, New Explode Construction is ready to help you design and build your addition.  We use our expertise to guide you through every step of the process -from the concept phase all the way to the beautiful finished project.

Adding attractive extra rooms can be a major renovation project.  But a well-planned, well-designed, and well-executed project can add value to your home and to your neighborhood.

TYPES OF HOME ADDITIONS

Home additions are a creative way to improve the overall appeal of a home and to add needed space.  Varieties are endless and as individual as the homeowner.

When planning a room addition, your research should include checking the builder’s portfolio and checking references with former clients.  We have a long list of satisfied clients who would be happy to share their experience working with New Explode Construction.

COMMON TYPES OF HOME ADDITIONS INCLUDE:

·      Multi-season Sun Rooms
·      Extra Bedrooms
·      Second-story Additions
·      Sun Porches
·      Garages
·      Extra Bathrooms
·      Expanded Kitchens
·      Master Bedroom Suites

ADVANTAGES OF HOME ADDITIONS WITH NEW EXPLODE CONSTRUCTION

Benefits include:

· Additional Space:
This is the most obvious and immediate advantage of a home addition.  Whether your plans include adding an extra room for a growing family, a larger kitchen for comfort, or a backyard sun porch for relaxing, we can help you create that new living space.

· Complete Creative Control: 
When you work with N.E.C. in designing and building a home addition, you have complete control of every decision.  From size and layout to paint and décor, this is your project.  While our contractors may have suggestions about layouts, ultimately, the choice is yours to make.

· Sound Investment: 
Even though home additions can be costly, most homeowners get a good return on investment at the time of sale.  In a good neighborhood, a home addition adds value to your property and increases your chances of making a successful sale.

· Cost-Effective Decision: 
Whether you are adding a nursery or a sun porch, a home addition is a better investment than buying a slightly larger new house.  Factoring in closing costs and the hassles and expenses of moving make adding a room a more cost-effective choice.

OTHER THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN CONSIDERING A HOME ADDITION

Drawbacks to Home Additions:

· Increased space means an increase in heating and cooling bills.
· More space means increased maintenance and upkeep.
· Giving up yard or garden space: This can affect the resale appeal to prospective buyers.  This space cannot 
  be recovered after construction.
· Duration of the project:  Home additions can take time, creating a noisy, stressful environment in which to live. 
  Having contractors coming and going almost every day requires patience and flexibility on the part of the owner
  whose quiet home is temporarily disrupted.
