Add a new story to the life of your home
A successful second storey addition should be undertaken by a trustworthy builder who specialises in the specific skills required for this type of home alteration. ARG has more than 20 years’ experience, both in building new and renovating existing second storey additions and we take great pride in our projects.
When your lifestyle and needs are changing, a second storey addition could bring the next chapter of your home to life. We start with a consultation, to understand your desired outcome and discuss the options available to make your dream living space a reality. Our award-winning Designers then develop conceptual drawings that ensure seamless integration between old and new, incorporating energy-efficient designs with practical use of space.
ARG manages all of the required approvals, liaising with your local council to achieve planning approval and obtain a building permit. We work with outstanding Designers, Engineers and Tradespeople to achieve a high-quality, well-constructed addition for you with as little disruption as possible. We use modern technologies and materials with light-weight construction methods, to achieve high insulation ratings.
We understand that renovating can be a stressful time and we do everything possible to minimise the impact during construction. ARG’s experience means we have solutions for any challenges that might arise and you’ll also have peace of mind knowing that our Site Manager is available at all times to assist. Our dedicated team makes sure that lock-up is achieved quickly, which is crucial when a large area of the existing roof has to be removed to accommodate the new second storey.
Although there is a common belief that a second storey addition is more expensive than a ground floor extension, sometimes the reverse is true when foundations and other costs are taken into account. Depending on the scope of work and the size of your property, it might make more sense financially to extend upwards rather than outwards. You’ll also be adding value to your home.
