5 Reasons to Consider a Second-Floor Installation

Adding another story to your Bethesda home can provide several advantages:

  1. Double your living space: Do you need another bedroom or two for your growing family? If you have the opportunity to work from home, you may require office space. These additions provide substantial room to use however you see fit and give all your family members some much-needed elbow room.
  2. Preserve your outdoor living area: If you love your yard, a second-floor addition allows you to keep it intact. You can still enjoy hosting backyard barbeques, playing outdoor games, basking in the sun and participating in your other favorite activities.
  3. Stay in the area you love: If you’re debating between accepting a lack of living space or leaving the home and neighborhood you love, there’s another option. Adding another floor can resolve your dilemma and is typically less expensive than buying a larger house.
  4. Increase your home’s value: If you ever decide to move, a house with a second floor can be more appealing to buyers with growing families. Beyond appealing to more buyers, you can also receive a higher price for the property.
  5. Redesign your home: Adding a second story can provide the perfect opportunity to update the first floor. You can create your dream home from the ground up with simultaneous additions and renovations.
