Take your hometo the Next Level

If you feel like you are running out of space, but don’t want to leave the neighborhood that you have grown to love over the years, a second story home addition is perfect for you. At Prestige Renovations we help our neighbors in the Chicago land area and surrounding suburbs expand their homes without having to build out. Expanding vertically is a great solution if you live on a small lot.  Our team can design-build a second story home addition that will help preserve the open space outdoors and allow you to keep room for lawn activities, a garden, or even just adequate space between neighboring houses.

Our home renovation team will help determine if your current foundation can handle the additional weight and if the structure of your house is strong enough to handle a second floor. Adding on to the existing structure can help reduce remodeling costs, but if you need additional work to strengthen the foundation or engineer that part of your home to bear more weight we are here to help.

Other factors to consider are the height of your house and the possibility of building a staircase. We are familiar with city zoning ordinances that may limit the permitted height of a house and will work with your city and any homeowner’s association before getting started on exterior remodeling plans. Now that you are adding a second-level to your home, you’ll need to add a staircase. This needs to be planned carefully because you will be cutting into your current living space. We are experts on this type of remodeling and we will work with you to provide the best, most efficient solution for your home.

 

Second Story Options

Once it’s determined that your house is approved to build up and can handle a second story, there are a few basics options for your home:

  • The first option is that we tear the roof off completely. This will allow you to start the whole upper level from scratch with a new second story and a new roof.
  • Another option is that we carefully remove your existing roof and install it back onto your home after the second floor addition is complete.
  • A third option is that we make the second story home addition over an existing one story part of your house. This option allows you to expand above areas such as a flat-roof garage or porch.
