How long does it take to complete a cape cod add a level? Depending on the NJ Home Improvement Contractor that you hire, you don’t want the remodeling project to be any longer than it has to be. Specializing in the MOST affordable add a levels in Bergen County NJ, depending on the town that the home is located in, we average 8-12 weeks to complete your home remodeling raised level.

The stages the project goes through from day one are very routine. With most cape cod homes, the existing upstairs usually has 1-2 rooms and possibly a bathroom. These rooms need to be stripped down to the studs, ceiling beams and rafters. Inside of one day and this is completed. Next, with a few clear days of weather, the roof can be removed. This is where Pangione Developers distinguishes itself as the premier add a level contractor in Bergen County NJ. We will remove your roof, and start framing the new add a level the same day. Within 2-3 days your new roof shingle are installed.


You can’t afford to hire a NJ Contractor that doesn’t specialize in this field. Most of these cape cod homes have hardwood floors and finished basements. You want to have your new roof installed to protect your home from the weather elements especially rain. Within 2-3 days you want that new roof installed, the plywood walls sheeted and the windows set in place.

Your cape cod add a level project can double the size of your home. The average 700 square foot cape can give you 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. With that you will get full 8′ ceilings, large closets and a full attic for storage. The master bedroom package comes with recessed lighting, a walk in closet and if possible a jack and jill door into the standard bathroom if a master bathroom is out of your budget. The jack and jill door is a private door from the master bedroom into the bathroom located in the hall.

If your cape cod has an attached garage, you can gain further floor space by building above it if the garage foundation allows. That would have to be confirmed by digging pilot holes along side the exterior at different intervals and check the depth of the existing footing. If you have a standard 1 car attached garage, you can add another 220 square feet to your new floor plan.
