Dormers: The Perfect Home Addition Option for Cape Cod Homes
It can be incredibly frustrating if you love your neighborhood, but your home’s layout no longer meets your needs. Maybe your family is growing or perhaps you’ve recently become an empty-nester and would like to make some changes. Adding a dormer addition to your Cape Cod-style home is an excellent way to make your attic more spacious and functional.
A dormer (a window structure that extends from the roof’s main slope) usually has a different pitch angle or ridge direction than the main roof.
A knowledgeable contractor can design and build a dormer addition to increase the ceiling height in your attic, creating more usable space without changing the original blueprint of your home. The result is a more functional space for your family! Here are some of the other benefits of dormer additions:
- Increases home value
- Adds architectural interest, beauty, and curb appeal
- Less expensive than a full renovation or addition
- Add a bathroom or bedroom
- Create a home office or study space
- Breaks up the roof line and adds a sense of height to your home’s exterior
