Investing in a home addition for your house is a large undertaking. Fortunately, Alleva Construction is up to the task. We’re the go-to general contractor in Edgewater, New Jersey, with more than 35 years of experience under our belts. We have the know-how you need to complete any addition to your house safely and efficiently.

What It Takes to Add a House Expansion

The first thing you need to know is whether you’re legally allowed to build more space onto your house. Local building codes or HOA regulations may prohibit this type of construction in your neighborhood. So, before we get started, Alleva Construction will help you make sure whether you’re permitted to construct an addition to your house.

The second thing you should know is whether your foundation and soil will support room additions, especially if you plan to add a second story on your house. Your foundation may need to be shored up with underpinning, which increases the depth of your foundation, or jacketing, which wraps your foundation and footings in extra concrete. Alleva Construction can help you assess your foundation and bring in the expertise of an engineer, if needed.

The third thing you need to know is if your current walls, ceilings, and roof are strong enough to support a home addition. They may need to be reinforced with additional wall joists or support beams. Alleva Construction will be able to help you with this as well.

Once all those issues have been addressed, it’s time for the exciting part: the designing and building of your home addition, all of which can be expertly handled by Alleva Construction!
