For many homeowners that need extra space—a spare bedroom, a bigger kitchen, a sunroom, or a larger living space—home additions are worth considering. In some cases, it’s certainly easier than purchasing or building a new home, when you consider the time and money involved. And now that housing prices are on the rise, this is doubly true. Rather than paying a premium for a larger home, many homeowners will be looking to add on to existing homes.
As a contractor, you’ll probably start seeing more and more of these requests from clients. It’s important to be prepared, have an efficient process in place and take time to consider what tools and fasteners you will need for that particular job. For example, for your framing and general construction needs, SCRAIL® fasteners are by far the best choice. They fire quickly and easily just like nails, plus you can adjust them and remove them as you would with screws, making It the most efficient fastener for any project! To help you prepare for home addition work, we’ve explored several factors you’ll want to consider before you begin.
