Miller Home Remodeling for Home Additions and Enclosures
That Make a Difference
A Home Addition or Enclosure
by Miller Home Remodeling
Can Change Your Life
If you’re looking for ways to enlarge your house and increase its value, smart strategies for home
improvement include room additions, sunrooms, and patio enclosures. While adding living space and value to
your home, these additions can also significantly change the look and feel of your house, making your living
areas more comfortable and the time you spend at home more enjoyable. As one of the leading home improvement
contractors in southeast Michigan for nearly 60 years, Miller Home Remodeling has assisted customers with all
types of home additions and enclosures. Each home addition and enclosure offers practical answers to space limitations
as well as creative opportunities for design and decor. Each home addition and enclosure is as unique as the customer who builds it.
Miller Home Remodeling Additions Are Carefully Planned
When you’re thinking about a home addition, the place to start is with a home addition plan that’s well thought out.
Your Miller Home Remodeling representative can help you develop solid, practical addition plans. Your Miller
representative will meet with you at your home, look at your existing rooms and home layout, discuss your home
renovation ideas with you, and make suggestions for enlarging existing living areas or adding space to meet specific needs.
When planning house additions, you should identify the limitations in your house that you expect
the home addition to correct. Here are just some of the options you might consider in drawing up your addition plans:
- Multi-use room additions can provide study, office, and guest bedroom options in one package.
Well-planned room additions with well-thought-out furnishings can help you get the most out of your home improvement
dollars. Even with even a modest budget, you can build a multi-use room that can accommodate a college student
returning home between semesters, an overnight guest who needs privacy and comfort, and your own need to work at home.
- A family room addition can add living space and comfort. A family room addition can provide
play space for growing children as well as entertainment options for the adults in the family. Additional family
room space can house the entertainment center, a game area, accommodations for guests, a place for homework or
office work, additional storage areas, and much more. When planning a family room addition, determining exactly
what you’re looking for will help you decide, for example, whether this living area needs to be near bath facilities or provide a sleep area as well.
- A cozy breakfast nook addition can bring the family together. If your family needs to spend
more time together, adding a breakfast nook can provide an inviting, ready-to-use gathering place at meal times.
Without requiring a lot of space, a breakfast nook addition with built-in, cushioned benches around a family-sized
table can make family meals more enjoyable, accommodate friends and neighbors who drop over, and enhance the appeal of the whole kitchen.
- A second-story addition can double the size of your house. If you need significant additional
space but want to stay in the house you love, consider adding another story to your existing home. Even an extensive
home improvement remodeling project such as adding another floor can be worth it, not only financially but also emotionally.
Building a second story helps you avoid uprooting your family, leaving your neighborhood, and incurring the costs of moving.
Adding a second story enhances the value of your home. Combining a second-story addition with new windows, siding, or
other exterior improvements to the first floor can update the look of your entire home.
Enclosures: The Economical Home Improvement Option
Room enclosures are popular, economical home improvement options that
add value to your home. The specialized glass and screening extensively used in
these room enclosures let you enjoy nature while protecting you from insects and bad
weather. Enclosures can be designed for seasonal use or fitted with heating and ventilation systems
for year-round use. They extend your home’s living area while maintaining its security. As you consider
your home renovation options, your Miller Home Remodeling representative can advise you on several types of enclosures:
- Sun room additions. A sunroom offers a
cozy spot for reading and visiting that maximizes your sunlight
intake with the protection of insulated glass and treated screens. If you’re happiest when the
sun’s out, a sun room may be just what the doctor ordered to get you through the long, gray Michigan
winter. There are several sunroom designs to choose from. Sunroom additions are custom jobs for
Miller Home Remodeling. Sun rooms can be built in a variety of styles, can enclose a spa or hot tub,
and can be sized to fit your budget. Your sunroom will be designed to complement your home’s unique layout.
- Glass patio enclosures. A glass patio or deck enclosure offers a place to
entertain visitors while surrounded by nature. Glass patio enclosures are outdoor living rooms that
enlarge your home without emptying your pocketbook. Alternating screen and glass panels can provide
just enough exposure to nature inside your home. Miller Home Remodeling can outfit glass patio enclosures
as year-round rooms with the right heating and ventilation systems.
- Screened patio enclosures. As warm-weather options, screened patio enclosures are a
good choice. These patio enclosures allow you to enjoy the breeze and the sounds of the outdoors while staying
dry and protected from insects and animals. Special weather-resistant materials give your patio sunroom a sturdy
construction and long life. Screened patio enclosures can be the right choice for enclosing balconies, porches, or
decks, too. They can be designed for seasonal use on a permanent basis or can be upgraded later with glass to withstand year-round exposure.
- A conservatory addition. If you love plants and are always wishing for a longer
growing season, even a small conservatory addition could change your outlook on life. In a conservatory
setting, your plants will flourish and the short Michigan growing season could be extended by weeks. A
conservatory, or greenhouse, can be styled with an old-world look or as a sleek, modern enclosure. If
you’re happier when you’ve got your hands in the soil, a conservatory addition may be the right home improvement option for you.
The Miller Home Remodeling Estimate and Agreement
Once you and your Miller Home Remodeling representative have finalized your plans for your
home addition or enclosure, your Miller representative will estimate the costs of your home improvements
and provide you with an itemized list that outlines the required materials, labor,
and other purchases. You and your Miller representative can make changes based on your budget and your priorities.
When you sign the agreement to begin the project, you will be asked to pay a deposit on the work to
come, so that materials can be purchased and your home addition or enclosure work can get started. You
will make an initial payment when the agreement is signed and another payment when demolition is complete, with the
remainder upon final inspection. Your Miller Home Remodeling representative will develop a payment plan that’s comfortable for you.
