Double storey home extensions should be constructed with materials and in a style that matches the original dwelling. Our master builders will assess your current property and advise how we can make your home extension and improvement dreams a reality. The additional extra weight of the upper level will have to be carefully planned so that the existing dwelling can handle this new pressure.

Double Storey Extension Costs

Generally, it is assumed that the cost of building upward is higher than building a single storey extension. This is not always the case.

An additional storey to your home can enhance the access to picturesque views of the city skyline or nearby waterways, which dramatically increase the value of the home. As the roof will need to be removed to build up, Cameron Construction have an all-weather 24 hour emergency work and a customer service plan which is aimed at keeping you comfortable without the need to relocate during the construction period.

We understand that everyone has a different budget and a different dream build in mind. That’s why we can work with you to put together a financial plan that will take into account everything from the cost of materials to the fees required for the actual build itself.
