Why Dormers & Extensions Have Become So Popular


It used to be, if you wanted to add extra room to a home you had to opt to have the home undergo a complete home remodeling. This often included knocking down walls, tearing out windows, and expanding the space of an existing room – all of which can be extremely expensive, time consume, and interfere with your daily lives.

Luckily, a new concept in the home improvement industry is catching on. Dormers & Extensions allow homeowners to create additional space in a home without having to undergo all the extensive remodeling and work as a complete home addition.

Dormers and extensions are becoming popular for a number of reasons. The following are just some of the many reasons why homeowners that want additional room in their house are choosing to go with this type of home improvement project.

Ability to Bring Fresh Air and Sunlight to a Room

Many rooms in a home, such as an attic or loft, may be spacious and roomy, but there is no access to fresh air or sunlight. A dormer, which looks like an additional window but with extra space, can be used to add not only extra space to an attic but bring in sunlight or a chance to open a window for fresh air.

Easy to Install

Dormers & extensions are relatively easy to install. In fact, most of them can be installed into the roof or walls of an attic within a single day.
This installation method is preferred by many homeowners as it does not interrupt the day-to-day activities of those living in the home. Contractors can practically install the entire dormer or extension on the attic or loft with relatively no problems at all.

Visual Appeal

Home additions often appear clunky and awkward. Dormers and extensions add extra space without this problem. In fact, most dormers and extension appear as if they were built when the home was built.
