Adding a Storey to Your Home

One way to add space to your home is too grow upwards opposed to outwards. Below are some benefits to this type of addition:

  • If you and your family are in need of more space, adding another storey is more economical than selling; it will also increase the value of your home.
  • It's a great way to stay put if you are settled and comfortable in the neighborhood you live in.
  • You can create whatever you want! Whether it's a rec-room, more bedrooms, a study or theatre, it will be specifically tailored to meet your needs.
  • A great way to add special feature to make your home unique, such as, lots of windows, high ceilings, or that spiral staircase you're always wanted.
