Second Storey Additions - Add Space and Value
Amerex are experts at adding Second Storey Additions and Extensions to Perth homes
We love building Second Storey Additions because our clients are always so happy with the result at the end of their project.
There are so many reasons why a Second Storey Addition makes sense. The biggest benefit is the addition of more space, while also retaining your backyard for entertaining, children’s play areas, a pool, a garage or even a veggie patch.
If you can gain views from a Second Storey then this is a fantastic added bonus. Whether your view is of parklands, a lake, the ocean, across the city or simply provides a lovely outlook, then we can ensure that our designer maximises this benefit with a well thought-out second storey design.
A quality 2nd Storey Addition will add considerable value to your home. At some point in the future when you sell, your home value will have grown, and you will get a nice return on your investment. This means you are set to benefit from adding your double storey addition both now, and in the future too.
The most common reason for homeowners to opt for a second storey addition is because of the need for more space for a growing family.
Perhaps your kids are heading into their teenage years (or soon will be!) and need more space?
Maybe you need a Parent’s Retreat upstairs. A place to get away from it all with a Master Bedroom, Ensuite, Walk-in robe, study and a separate lounge area.

For other families, a second storey addition is a great way to facilitate an extended family living arrangement, OR maybe you simply need MORE space!!!
Whatever your reason, we will can design and build a 2nd Storey Addition that will meet the needs of your family both now, and for many years to come.
A second storey addition can be built in as little as 4 months. This includes completely fitting it out with all electrical work, plumbing, new staircase, bathroom cabinets, fixtures installed, walk-in robes, flooring, painting thoughout and more. If you are also extending the ground floor e.g. with an open plan living extension and a new afresco, then the scope of works is greater and the timeframe will be longer as a result.
Amerex use professional project management software to manage all projects and have a perfect record of delivering projects on time. At the start of your project we will schedule your entire project and provide you with an accurate completion date.
At Amerex, we stand by our commitment to quality and with second storey additions there are a number of key factors to consider.
Because we custom-build, all joins between the top and the bottom are perfectly aligned. Recently in Perth, some builders have start to promote the ‘drop-in box on top’ concept. While this idea is interesting, it is very difficult to add a modular second storey onto an existing home and expect it to line up exactly square. This means that the top and the bottom will potentially need patching and fixing to marry the top and the bottom. This has the potential to ruin the look and finish of your home and even devalue your home if done poorly.
For this reason, Amerex stick with the approach that provides the best quality outcome – custom-building. We want your home to be built of a standard that will add value over time with a high quality finish that will stand the test of time and look good too.
Read more about prefabricated second storey additions here, where we debunk many of the claims currently being made! Including the claim that a top storey can be added in one day. This is simply an advertising gimmick. Even once the box is craned in (after the roof has been removed and required demolition has taken place – there is a couple of weeks of work right there), the challenge of joining begins and then the process of fitting-out must commence. This clearly is more than a one day project!! Don’t be fooled. Opt for a quality solution and add value to your home.
“We have just completed a major renovation with Steve and the AMEREX team. We had a 1930’s California bungalow and required the character at the front to be maintained whilst adding almost an entire new house to the back including a second storey.
We have built twice before, both new homes one with larger builders. The difference between that and our experience with AMEREX was astounding. This was actually an exciting and pleasurable experience throughout.
“Rather than a number or just “another” client, we were made to feel part of the AMEREX family. The office staff are a pleasure to deal with, nothing is ever too much effort. Kelly in particular is a great help with all the various selections and changes and is always smiling!
We did not have an issue with a single tradesman throughout. I was able to speak to Steve at any time regarding any issue and many times he would suggest changes on site to improve the look or function of the renovation. We could not recommend AMEREX highly enough.”
