CURRENT COMPANY SPECIALS:

Have you been planning on expanding your cape cod? Many cape cod owners throughout Bergen County NJ will hire a qualified New Jersey Remodeling Contractor or NJ Home Improvement Contractor to modify their cape cod home.  The most common conversion for a cape cod is an Add a Level. Commonly referred to as a raised level, you can double the size of your cape cod by simply adding an entire new level above. The existing roof would be removed and a new floor would be built. The idea of an add a level is to bring all the bedrooms upstairs as well as 1-2 bathrooms. By moving all the bedrooms upstairs from the 1st floor, you then can remove the bedrooms from the 1st floor by removing the walls and closets. This will create an open floor plan on the first floor. Although some walls are load and non- load bearing, your New Jersey remodeling contractor will be able to open the walls for you and install the necessary headers if needed.

Having built hundreds of add a levels throughout Bergen County NJ, when having your add a level addition designed and built, you want the end product to have a look that when finished, the home never looked as though you added a new top floor. This can be achieved by creating a roof line that will accent your 2nd floor windows by adding reverse gables and or eye brow returns. These small gable style roofs will accent the 2nd floor windows and give a better appearance from the street. Furthermore, you can build an entry portico that will further accent the front of your home. Another trick that we use that helps create a multi dimensional roof line is to add an eyebrow roof on the front of your home. This roofline will be installed where the 1st floor and 2nd floor meet. It’s a small roof that runs across the front of the home just above the 1st floor windows. Between the accent gables and eyebrow roof line, your cape cod conversion will look very natural.

        Cape Cod Conversions

As a NJ Remodeling Contractor based in Bergen County New Jersey, our parent company Pangione Developers Inc. specializes in cape cod add a level home additions. Commonly referred to as Raised Levels, adding a new top floor to your cape cod is quite common.

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.

If you have any questions about your CAPE COD add a level, contact Pangione Developers Inc for a free consultation.
