Over structure extensions are less common than other kinds of extensions. However, they can be very striking. Over structure extensions are a kind of extension which sits above an existing structure, like a garage. They are usually used when the homeowner wants to keep their garage. They can add lots of usable space to a home, and because they are on the second floor of a house they are generally used to create additional bathrooms, bedrooms or an office.
Over structure extensions aren’t suited to all properties. It is vital that the pre-existing structure was created to accommodate the extra load of the extension. For most garages, this will demand considerable construction work as garages were generally designed with single leaf walls and shallow foundations. However, the structural elements of the garage or other structure can be improved to support the load of the over structure extension. This will in general be costly, but extensions of this type are a great way to add space and value to your home while still keeping the advantages of a garage.
Qualified building contractors will be able to offer you advice on which style of extension is most appropriate for your home. If you choose an over structure extension, they will be able to carry out a structural survey on the building and advise you on the scale of the works that need to be performed.
