HK Construction puts an emphasis on building and renovating homes for customer s looking to create more interior space to accommodate their growing families.

An important factor to consider before undergoing a building project is the cost to remodel an existing structure compared to the expense associated with starting fresh via a rebuild. This can be true when a homeowner desires to add a second story onto an existing single-walled structure. In this case, it may prove more costly to shore up the ground level than it would be to start anew and build the multilevel dwelling properly.

Foundation issues and major erosion under a house can also spur the home rebuilding process, as can additional problems such as: termite-damaged beams and floor joists; faulty electrical systems and breaker boxes; cracked sewer lines; poor roof designs and leaking; and outdated kitchens, bathrooms or areas like hallways that aren’t senior-friendly.

Recently, a HK Construction client desired to upgrade a bathroom to be ADA compliant, a process that included opening up the room to allow for movement for someone in a wheelchair by widening doorways and moving fixtures to appropriate heights and locations. It’s important to consult with a business like HK Construction as adding aspects like a roll-in shower may not be feasible if the surrounding walls and drainage system are not constructed properly to handle such an alteration.

The skilled designers and builders at HK Construction continue to provide aesthetic yet practical upgrades and additions for Hawaii homeowners. A positive first step in determining what can be done to build or enhance one’s dream home is to attend one of HK Construction’s free home building seminars. Questions will be answered and those interested may also set up a free on-site assessment.
