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 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
