The majority of our recent posts have been regarding foundation repairs.  As a result we are highlighting a new construction project this time around to change things up a bit.

First of all, it is important to make sure you contact a design professional prior to contacting contractors for new construction.  As a result this will help to ensure that construction is completed in accordance with the appropriate building codes during your planning stage. Certainly you want to make sure you are doing it correctly the first time. Additionally, hiring a structural engineer or architect will likely save you time and headaches throughout the permitting and building process.

If you are considering an addition, but you are already experiencing foundation problems, consult with an engineer.  Often times the necessary repairs can be incorporated with the addition.
