At Next Level Extensions, we have completed a lot of home extensions and second storey additions in the Perth area. During the “getting to know you” process, one of the first questions that often comes up is “Should we build up or out?” Here are the advantages of building up and the best situations to do so.
Why Renovate at All?
The main advantage of renovating or adding onto your existing home is that you save time, money and hassle. It takes a lot of time and effort to find and buy a new home, sell your old home, pack up all of your belongings and move. When you renovate your existing home, you can have more space without all of the hassle. Usually, your home’s value will rise by more than you spend on the renovations if you ever decide to sell it.
When Should You Consider a Second Storey Addition?
There are many reasons to opt for a second storey addition. One of the most common is not having enough space on your property to build out. If you have to dig up your swimming pool or use up all of your garden space to add onto your home, it is wise to look at a second storey addition. If your home is on a slope, it may cost a lot more to build an extension than a second storey addition. Sometimes large trees or their roots must be excavated.
Some Advantages of a Second Storey Addition
When you “build up,” it can often give you a great view that you didn’t have before. You can also put bedrooms upstairs and leave the entire downstairs for common family space or an open floor plan. Also, it leaves the rest of your property for uses such as a garden or alfresco living area.
