Pop Tops & Additions

Sometimes, homeowners become so comfortable in their current homes that they want to stay there forever. As life sometimes does, unexpected circumstances or planned events could create the need for more space in the current living environment. Pop tops and additions are both great choices to stretch your home’s square footage in order to create more room.

A home addition project could mean a number of home improvement projects. These include enlarging a kitchen/dining area space, adding another bedroom, creating a family room or expanding the living space upwards by opting for a pop top remodel. Denver Urban Builders are ready and able to perform this type of job.

What We Do

Adding on an extra room to a single-story home is usually a simple matter. It is important to consult with professional building contractors, like Denver Urban Builders, before embarking on an ambitions addition plan. There are a number of things to consider before purchasing any building supplies or beginning the work. These concerns include:

  • Checking City/Township Permit Requirements for Building & Code Regulations
  • Ensuring that Addition Is Far Enough Away from Neighbor’s Property Line
  • Making Sure Home Foundation is Safe & Sound
  • Checking Existing Electrical System Can Handle the Added Space Load
  • Same for Ensuring HVAC or Other Heating/Cooling Unit Can Handle Excess Load/Space Requirements
  • Determining if Water/Sewer Lines Need Moved Beforehand
  • Ensuring a Pleasing Exterior Aesthetic with Existing Exterior Features

There are times when it is just not feasible to spread outwards due to close proximity to a neighbor’s property lines or strict rules from homeowners association groups. In these cases, it may be possible to build upwards by utilizing pop tops. This is a difficult project that should always be done by professionals who have the necessary knowledge, skills training and experience to do the work safely.

At Denver Urban Builders, our seasoned team of builders have the proper training and plenty of experience in pulling off either a pop top upward expansion or a simpler home addition. Typically, pop top additions are done on single story homes for best end results. Other addition options include a second story addition over top of a garage or closing in a balcony, patio space or porch to create an indoor room or extra space.
