Room Additions: Raising the Roof on your House to Add more Rooms

Adding Second Story Room Addition

Adding a vertical second-story addition to a single-story home is an efficient approach to managing your needs of increasing your living space.

You can potentially double the square footage of your home (based on home design) and acquire more space without relocating. Most people are content with their homes but want more space, and that’s what makes second story additions so popular. A vertical development won’t loom over the existing backyard. As such, you’ll have extra space without loosing valuable yard space.

You can design second story additions any way you please. Most people tend to move into a pre-designed house, making overhauls of the home pricey. HK Remodel’s skilled contractors will address their desires and needs. Our team of architects and building planners will develop the addition based on the homeowner’s concepts.

Once construction is completed, homeowners will have the chance to enjoy a specific section of their home more comfortably since it has been customized to their specifications. Modifications to the main floor will also be more affordable since the renovation process will also impact the current frame of the house. For instance, new ventilation, high ceilings, and different wiring can be supplemented.

Hiring the Best Contractor for the Job

When homeowners show interest in building a second story addition, they need to choose the right contractor for the job. Obtaining a competitively-priced contractor is the most vital factor when having renovations or construction performed on your house.

Several people mistakenly select an inexpensive or a contractor with the lowest bid which is usually the worst option because it ends up ultimately costing them more money in the long run. An inexperienced contractor may be more concerned with being paid than finishing the project on time and correctly.

The lowest bidding contractors can afford to offer low prices because they short cut work, go too fast, use inexperienced “day labor” and othe install sub-quality components and low grade materials. This can result in future household problems. You should also be weary of overpriced contractors too, as they might be rip-off artists looking to make a quick buck at your expense.

Always check references and reviews prior to hiring a contractor!
