Chicago Pop - Tops (Roof Expansion)

Many home owners eventually have to face the fact that the house they bought some years ago is no longer spacious enough for their growing family. They find themselves fighting over the single bathroom, inadvertently invading each others' privacy and, well, simply running out of space. A home addition project is often a great alternative to purchasing a new, bigger home, but for some home owners, it's simply not an option. Neighboring houses may not allow for enough space to expand on either side, and the backyard may not be big enough to make a home addition possible or worth the work and money.

Luckily, for those home owners in the greater Chicago area who find themselves in this situation, there is an alternative: pop-top roof expansion. If you can't build horizontally, then vertical is the way to go! D J Chicago Remodeling can, in most cases, add a whole new level to your home without disrupting the existing roof and supporting structure.

Obviously, a pop-top remodel is a large renovation, and needs to be planned carefully. D J Chicago Remodeling's experienced and qualified architects and designers will first meet with you to establish just how much more space you need, and will then work with you to design your new floor so that it fits your unique needs and desires. Once they are satisfied that the plan is both sound and to your liking, they will start working.

Essentially, a roof expansion remodel is pretty simple: the roof of your house will be "popped up" and raised to allow for enough space to accommodate the new level. Once this is accomplished, this remodel is like most others – walls will be raised, flooring and ceiling installed and your family will soon find itself comfortably spread out in your new, spacier home.

Most home owners are surprised to find just how affordable a pop-top roof expansion project is in comparison to the cost of buying a new home and moving.
