Things to Consider When Adding Another Level to Your Home

by Yours Tyleau Webmaster

Adding another level to your home can be a great way to give you that much-needed space. When considering home additions in Sydney, there are several things that you need to be aware of and consider before taking the plunge.

Do your research

Before taking on any building project, it is important to do your research properly. After all, you are going to be investing a lot of money on this project. Talk to your neighbours who have already added a second level to their home and look at their designs.

You should also meet with different building companies to get a range of quotes for the work.

Have a well-planned design

Once you have found the right building company, like Your Style, the fun can begin, and you can start planning how your additional level on your home will work. Remember that because you are adding space to the upstairs, some of the space downstairs will have to be forfeited to make way for staircases.

When it comes to designing the new upstairs, consider how you will give the illusion of space using natural light, how high your ceilings can be and how you can make the most of the space you will have.

Check the foundations

Another reason that it is vital to choose the right company is that there are many aspects to adding a second storey that you might not have thought of. This includes checking that the foundations of your home will be able to cope with added weight from adding another level.

Make sure you are following the regulations

Adhering to building regulations is vital when you complete any kind of structural building work. At Your Style, we take care of all building regulations and ensure we have a Construction Certificate.

Depending on where you live, you might find that you have constraints regarding the height you can achieve or other requirements. If your neighbours have successfully added another level to their home, you will probably be able to, but it always needs checking.

How long it will take

Adding another level to your home may take time. When you choose to work with an established and experienced company, they should be able to give you a timeframe. The amount of time it will take will depend on your design.

Choose Your Style for your second storey addition
