The ultimate in home renovation, adding a second floor addition is a big project. We have experience and expertise that can only come from correctly completing the project many times over. If you are thinking about adding a second level to your home, look no further than Budget Construction.
The first thing we need to look at is the structural support for your new second level. Since your home was not originally built to support a level above the main one, it is likely that some additional support will be needed. This is not a problem as long as you have an experienced team like the one at Budget Construction on your side. We will analyze how best to provide long lasting solid support for your new home.
Think of all the different systems that all work together to make up your home! Electrical systems need to be expanded to the new level, Plumbing will need to connect everything together, and heating and air conditioning ducts will need to run from the furnace. Depending on how much square footage you are adding, you might even need to upgrade some of these, like your furnace for example. We have the expertise to make recommendations based on our many years of doing these types of projects.
At the end of the day, you probably don’t want your new second floor addition to look like it was just slapped on top of your old house! You want it to look like it has always been there. This is where our awesome design team comes in – to help create a seamlessly integrated appearance both inside and out. We will take the look and character of your home and recreate it so that they both match. However, in some cases you actually might want to change the appearance or certain features of your home, and that is no problem too! Once you are embarking on a big project like this, it can be the ideal time to fix or update a few other areas of your home that perhaps you have always wanted to do and now you have the chance.
Well this is probably the main reason people will want to add a second level: it can almost double the square footage of your home! This of course adds lots of value to your property since the total square footage is one of the main thing that buyers tend to be concerned about – “how much space is there?” By consulting our plans we will be able to give you a great idea about how much space your new second floor will provide to your home and your family.
