A two-story addition can create substantial added value to a home, but there are several factors to consider to see if a two-story addition is right for you. If after considering all the dynamics that go along with a two-story addition, you still think it’s the right direction for you, Remodel Works Bath and Kitchen is the room addition expert you’ll want to work with.
While any room addition requires permit and limitation consideration, a two-story addition is much more complicated. Not only does a two-story addition change the internal structure of your home, it greatly affects the overall structure. In San Diego, like most cities, neighborhoods have regulations, structural themes, and continuity that is expected to be maintained. One of the main factors in deciding whether a two-story addition is the right move for you is how it fits into the neighborhood. It is important to think about how structurally similar it will be to other homes, if it is proportionately acceptable to the surrounding area, and how it looks on the street. Having a home that sticks out substantially from the others in your neighborhood can actually hurt you.
Another factor to consider is the codes and restrictions placed on your property. The codes and restrictions that apply to you are designated by your city and community and must be abided by at all times. It would be highly beneficial for you to work with a professional contractor who is well informed of your city’s codes and restrictions so that you can avoid any issues during construction or hurt the value of your home. Going forward with a two-story addition without taking the appropriate steps can significantly delay construction, leaving your house in complete chaos.
The worst case scenario would be that you have violated your city’s property building codes and restrictions, requiring you to not only pay a fine but to completely remove your addition wasting potentially well over $100,000. It isn’t uncommon for San Diego residents to live in a community that is zoned as a historic district, adding another level of complexity to home additions. Navigating these confusing codes and restrictions can be difficult without the guidance of an experienced contractor.
