On Zillow you can claim your home and edit the home facts (i.e. put in the additional square feet). 

I hope you are enjoying your remodeled home after months of disruption!

The yearly tax assessment creates an assessed value of your home.  Usually this is done simply by looking at the trending values.  You will want to contact your county's assessment office to have a new one completed for this year.
As for an actual appraisal, you could contact Appraisers in your area to complete an appraisal on your home.  These are generally required when selling a home to compare with the purchase price and are especially important to the lenders.  It would also give you a good idea of the value of your home.
Also, most Real Estate offices will offer a free Comparative Market Analysis on your property.  This is where they look at the features, size, improvements, location of your home and compare it to homes in the area that are similar.  They will look at homes currently listed & those that have sold in the past 6-12 months to give you an idea of what price you may be able to list & sell your home at.
