Add-a-level is another term for a large addition over the existing home. In most cases its considered if you own a ranch or have no living space over your existing garage. It is important to understand that when you add-a-level to your existing structure, the first floor and basement levels are also impacted. First floor wall openings are needed to distribute mechanical trades in addition to added structural enforcements needed to carry the new loads down to the foundation. In many cases additional footings are required in the basement of the existing. As well as adding beams and sometimes steel to the basement or first floor ceilings. Homeowners should be aware that this type of construction usually affects roofing and siding. Although in many cases the intenion is to keep the existing, the end result may be a replacement of roofing and siding to ensure the building looks consistent when complete and not look like an addition.
