Important Information About Second Story Additions

If you are finding that your family is outgrowing your current home, consider a house extension instead of moving. Many homeowners with a single-level house find that adding a second-story house extension is the perfect remedy to their space issues. This is the perfection option when you love the location of your home and dread having to move. Before you decide to jump in and start calling contractors to come build a house extension, you should be aware of some important information regarding second story additions.

A home extension or addition is done when a contractor builds another level onto your existing house, oftentimes greatly increasing the living space. When you build up, you are not increasing the original footprint of your home, so your property taxes will not increase. If you need more bedrooms, larger living spaces, additional bathrooms and you don’t want to lose garden space, a second-story addition is the perfect option for you. You may also be happy to hear that you can actually improve and increase the amount of natural light that comes into your home when you add a second story.

First, the process of a second-story house extension involves the removal of the existing roof and you may not be able to live in your home for at least a portion of the home-extension project. Since this can greatly affect your life, it is important to think about it and see if it is feasible for you to live elsewhere during the construction. Another major consideration is that a project of this magnitude will require the services of several professionals, including architects, contractors, plumbers, structural engineers, and electricians. Or, you can hire one contractor that can subcontract all of these services for you. The most important thing you can do when planning a house expansion is that you hire licensed and qualified professionals to do the job.
