Great Falls Second-Floor Additions

At Ideal Construction & Remodeling, we have a professional team of second-story addition contractors. We provide second-floor additions in Great Falls and throughout northern Virginia. Learn more about how a second-story addition can improve your home as a whole.

How We Approach Second-Story Additions in Great Falls

Every home is unique, and we’ll work with you to design an addition based on your specifications. That said, every project involves the same basic steps. Our typical design-build process is as follows:

  • First consultation: During our initial consultation, we’ll discuss your ideas and goals for the addition. Our project manager will meet with you, take measurements and gather information on-site.
  • Design and planning: In this phase, we’ll finalize a design and construction plan for your approval. We’ll consider your preferred style, functionality and budget and work out a timeline for the project.
  • Construction: After you sign the necessary contracts, we’ll begin building. Our team will work efficiently to minimize any interruptions to your daily routine. You’ll have access to your project manager if you have questions at any point.
  • Finishing up: Before we complete construction, we’ll perform a walkthrough and create a final list of tasks to complete. Once we complete construction, your limited home warranty period will begin and you can start enjoying your new space.

We’ll work with you from start to finish to create the ideal addition for your home.

The Benefits of Adding a Second Story

Homeowners have various reasons for building second-story additions in Great Falls. Your new space can provide:

  • More space for the entire family to live and work.
  • Increased privacy.
  • Added value for your home if you decide to sell it later.
  • A better view of the neighborhood or surrounding area.
  • The opportunity to stay in your neighborhood as your family grows.
