Room Addition Rosemead

A room addition can be a great way to increase the amount of living space available in your home. Adding an extra bedroom, or converting a garage into a recreational room or playroom are some common types of additions homeowners decide to take on. UDream Builders is your preferred home remodeling contractor in Rosemead.

The Necessary Steps To A Successful Room Addition Construction

Secure Permits if Needed

Before you begin construction, it is important that you meet with your local government and determine if permits are required. The requirements for permits vary by location, so make sure you check the exact requirements where your property is located before beginning construction. You will also need to know what restrictions apply – things like setbacks from the property line and zoning laws may impact how big a certain portion of your addition can be.

Layout a Plan

Once you’ve checked for any legal limits on what you’re allowed to do, it’s time to think about what you actually want to do with the space. One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is where your addition will be located on your property. When laying out your plans, it’s important that any new portions of the structure are built at least 10 feet away from any existing structures or property lines. You also want to keep in mind how tall future additions could affect the roof line and exterior appearance of other rooms in your home.

Once you have the floor plan complete, decide how you want your space to be finished out – such as with drywall or tile. Choose colors, finishes and styles that fit your overall design theme and choose a quality contractor who can make these things happen.

Hire a Professional

Once you’ve decided where everything should go, start drawing up a floor plan for the new room – you can hire a professional contractor to do this if you’re not sure how to do it yourself. Make sure all bathrooms and other major features are included on the blueprint – every plumbing fixture counts as two square feet, so it’s important to plan ahead for this.

Make sure to hire a qualified team from UDream Builders to do the job. We offer a wide range of services to fit your individual needs, including room additions, garages, and home remodeling. We have the experience and know-how to get the job done right, on time and within budget.

Once you’ve gone through all of these steps, sit back and enjoy your new space – room additions offer a great way to create the home of your dreams without moving from your existing property.

Room Addition Construction Details

Excavation and foundation

This process can be done by either your contractor or a subcontractor. If your yard is sloped and there isn’t an even grade around the entire foundation area, then it will need to be terraceleveled before excavation can begin. The soil must be examined to determine the type of foundation that is required.


Once the foundation is in place, the framers can start to put up the walls and roof of your

Footings and foundation walls

Your contractor will typically install concrete footings and then pour the foundation walls. If your addition is more than one story high, you will need a reinforced concrete stem wall. This helps to support the weight of the upper floors.


The framing for your room addition is critical for both the strength and appearance of the finished project. Make sure your contractor uses quality lumber and properly seals all joints with waterproof caulk or sealant.


The roofing on your addition should match the existing roofing on your home – unless you’re going for a different style. If you are changing the roofing, make sure your contractor understands the specific requirements for your type of roof.

Your electrical wiring must be up to code and properly inspected before you can use the new space. Make sure all switches and outlets are in the correct locations and that there is enough power to support all of the new appliances and lighting you plan on using.


Adding a new room to your home requires adding new plumbing fixtures as well. Make sure your contractor installs these properly and that all joints are sealed with waterproof caulk or sealant.


Once the plumbing, electrical and framing are complete, your contractor can start installing the drywall. Don’t forget to pick up all paint and other materials before this happens since drywall dust will ruin them.


If you’re going with tile or laminates, your contractor can start installing the flooring right away – just make sure it matches the rest of the space. If you’re going with hardwood flooring, then it’s a good idea to wait until after painting is complete to avoid scratches from heavy equipment and construction debris.


Painting a room addition may seem like a simple task but there are a few things that need to be considered. The existing ceiling height must match the new floor-to-ceiling heights for any walls that have been added as wel las the existing space. Your contractor should always create a taping schedule before painting begins so that all details are completed correctly and you have a sharp-looking finished product.


Once your room addition is complete, it’s finally time to start using it! If the project has taken longer than you thought it would, don’t be afraid to make necessary adjustments like moving walls or altering lighting arrangements for more efficient use of the space.
