The most expensive option is to build a full basement on to your existing home. Although costly, this is an addition that is sure to add loads of value to your home, should you decide to sell it at some point in the future. Building a basement requires breaking through the old foundation in order to connect new and old basements together. Basements can easily be turned into an extra living space at a cost that is way less than the cost of actually building the addition. With this foundation type, you can even choose to insulate the floor and use solid wood for the flooring.
If you build a basement that is only a few feet in total depth, then you could save thousands of dollars. This is a good choice for those who do want to explore using solid wood flooring in their homes and adding insulation to the floor. Adding a crawlspace is the standard when it comes to additions like these. A crawlspace allows you to have flexibility and insulation in the flooring, but also it gives you the freedom to convert the crawlspace into a full basement and living space in the future.
Slabs are built much like outdoor concrete patios, only they have the addition of footings that are placed around the perimeter in order to support the structure. The slab will combine the foundation and the floor in just one layer of concrete. This can only be applied when the addition is the right grade, meaning that it is relatively flat. This can save thousands of dollars as well.
If your addition will be above grade, the lowest cost option will be for you to go without a foundation or a slab and just use pole footings instead. This is what is normally used for decks. The crew at Westminster Concrete Pros offers many solutions so that you can build an addition on to your home that meets your vision.
