The Best Way to Build Second Storey Home Extensions Melbourne
Second-Storey Extensions Melbourne
Home renovations are a popular topic amongst homeowners, but the moment you mention an upward extension, people tend to worry. There is concern about duration and affordability, but with a reliable contractor, you reap the benefits without the hassle.
The primary benefit of an upwards extension is that you create space without moving. Naturally, families grow, and their home becomes cramped. Instead of selling your home and searching for another property, a second storey provides ample space without moving. Your family have become accustomed to the area and established their social lives; moving is an inconvenience they don’t have to endure.
As a homeowner, you’ll get a degree of design flexibility when you opt for a second storey. It allows you to configure your home in the way you want that suits your lifestyle. More people are inclined to place their bedrooms on the second floor, which provides more privacy for occupants. Additionally, a vertical extension opens views that you would never see without a second storey.
An upward extension is an opportunity to receive added cash. Over 75 000 Australians have done so by renting out sections of their properties to holidaymakers or residents. It’s an effortless method of securing additional income.
Tips to Consider for a Second Storey Extension
We’ve noted the benefits of extending your home upwards. Here are some points to consider when you implement the renovations.
You should consider whether you plan on living on the property for an extended period. Aspects such as increasing family members or guests living with you should play a role in your decision. If you’re happy with the location, then an upward extension is ideal. Invest in quality materials that can withstand the harsh elements.
In the interest of safety, you should call in a contractor to inspect the foundation of the property. The contractor determines if the foundation is strong enough to handle another level and sort out the necessary building codes.
Can My Foundation Support A Second Storey?
The foundation of your house supports floors and load-bearing walls. There is a limit to how much load a foundation can bear. If the foundation can support it only then they can add another storey. The foundation requirements for adding a second storey can vary from one place to another.

We got two jobs done from Tetris, tiling and feature wall. From the time of calling George for the quote and to the last day of the work George had been professional and friendly at the same time. I’m impressed with his and his brother Theo’s dedication to making sure your house looks great as if it was their own. The tiling work they did is really great and clean. I even asked George to get sealing done and he was fine to come back again for me. The other job he George did was to create a feature wall. He made the wall as per my liking and installed a fireplace, TV and created a nice niche. I will definitely recommend Tetris Homes and I’m really impressed with the end product.
George’s attention to detail and Theo’s workmanship make this team the perfect partners for your home project. After gutting my new apartment, they both worked tirelessly and meticulously for a result I couldn’t believe! Amazing artisanal work. Every day I come home, I’m still impressed. Thanks boys!
