Remodel Vs. Addition

Are you remodeling or building an addition?  To help sort out this home improvement dictionary keep these tips in mind:  Both a home addition and a remodel begin with an existing structure. The difference is - a remodel changes an existing area of the structure, and an addition literally adds additional space to the structure.  To decide which best suits your needs, check the local zoning laws to make sure your project won't exceed these limits and require a costly approval process.
