5 Reasons to Consider a Second-Story Addition
Adding a second story to your home offers numerous advantages, including:
- Maximum space potential: While a horizontal addition may work well if you wish to add another room or two to your home, building another floor gives you more room to expand. You can double the size of the living area, making it feel like you’re moving into a brand-new home.
- No need to relocate: Do you love your neighborhood? A second-story addition provides the extra space you need, and you can stay in the home you’ve already made so many memories in.
- Keep your yard intact: The backyard is a sanctuary for many families. Adding a second story ensures you can still enjoy your outdoor living area. You’ll have plenty of room for barbecues, games, family gatherings and that swimming pool you’ve always wanted.
- Cost-efficiency: It’s often more cost-effective to add another floor than to build an addition. There’s no digging or foundation work involved, and the permitting process is more straightforward and less burdensome.
- Higher resale value: Adding another floor can dramatically increase your property’s value and market price if you decide to sell. Your home will also be more appealing to larger families or homebuyers who want more space.
