Most Denver residents have enjoyed increasing home values over the last few years, and with that increase, there has been a greater demand for adding usable space.

- Testing for asbestos and lead.
- Upgrading the electric and plumbing to code
- Ceiling height requirements of 7 feet minimum
- Adding egress windows
- Access to the work site
- Structural engineering may be needed.
- Stairway reconfiguration
