Being a New Jersey Remodeling Contractor located in Bergen County NJ, ranch add a level conversions are becoming very popular for those ranch homeowners that need the extra room. Your NJ home addition add a level can double your floor space giving you the much needed room you and your family desperately need.

                   TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF OUR CURRENT SPECIALS:

Unlike a cape conversion add a level, ranch add a levels need to have a new floor added to the ranch’s framing to support the new top floor. Most existing ranch homes have 2×6 ceiling joists. Since this is inadequate to support  a new level, we will install a new floor just above the existing 2×6 ceiling with 1 piece TGI wood I beams. With engineered floor joists, we can install one piece beams from front to back in one span. The positive thing about this is that when we install the new floor, it is constructed in a way that avoids us having to relocate any wiring or 1st floor recessed lighting that many times runs above the existing 2×6 ceiling beams in the attic.

With ranch style homes, your add a level needs to have a staircase constructed in order to have access to the 2nd level. During the new floor framing, the stairwell will be framed out to accommodate the soon to be installed staircase. Also depending on where your existing basement staircase is located, this is a great time to remove the existing staircase and install the new basement stairs where your new upper level stairs will go. With ranch style homes, the basement stairs is usually located in or around the kitchen area. If you remove the staircase in the kitchen, you can gain that area for kitchen use.

 

Since the bedrooms will be relocated to the new add a level, you can now remove some of the old bedroom and closet walls on the first floor. If they are load bearing then the necessary headers will need to be installed. If they are non load bearing then the entire wall can be removed. The original bedrooms will now become an expanded living area such as your living room, dining area or even a family room area.

COMPANY SPECIALS

 

Why have Ranch Add A Levels otherwise commonly called Raised Levels become so popular. That answer is simple. You can add an entire new floor above your home gaining in most cases double the amount of square footage. This type of NJ Home Remodeling project can be completed all within 3 months time.

By removing the existing roof, we can set up an entirely new floor plan for your family doubling the homes layout. The idea is to move the existing 1st floor bedrooms to the new upper level. This enables you to remove and open some existing 1st floor walls. Usually by removing 2-3 walls on the 1st floor, we can open the floor plan wide open for a larger living room, dining and kitchen area.

Don’t forget the staircase. A ranch is a home that has all the rooms situated on the original 1st floor. The basement many times is unfinished. A new staircase needs to be configured for the new level’s access. With our ranch add a level packages we will configure a new staircase leading from the 1st to the 2nd floor. Ultimately we will put the new staircase around the front door area. If your existing basement staircase if off and located at another side of the home, we can close that staircase up and insert the new basement staircase with the new 2nd level access staircase. Remember that if we do remove the original basement staircase area, you will now gain that area as additional floospace.

Since ranch homes tend to be at least 1200 square feet or larger without an attached garage, you can usually fit 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms without having to build above your garage. Building above your garage offers the opportunity to expand your new upper level even further. You can never have enough square foot floor space. The extra floor space allows you to add an optional laundry, larger closets or even a 2 level entry foyer.
