Our team of experts specializes in accessible renovations, ensuring that individuals with mobility challenges can enjoy their homes to the fullest. Whether you are looking for specific modifications or require guidance on how to make your spaces more accessible, we’re here to help. Consider these vital benefits of accessibility renovations:

  1. Enhanced Independence: Accessibility renovations empower individuals with mobility limitations to retain their independence and navigate their homes with ease. By eliminating barriers, such as narrow doorways, steps, or slippery surfaces, we can create a safer and more accessible environment.
  2. Improved Safety: Safety is a top priority when it comes to home renovations. Our team is well-versed in incorporating various safety features like grab bars, non-slip flooring, handrails, and properly positioned lighting. These modifications help minimize the risk of accidents and create a secure living space.
  3. Increased Comfort: An accessible home is a comfortable home. Through thoughtful design and modifications, we can enhance the overall comfort of your living spaces. From installing roll-in showers with adjustable showerheads to creating open floor plans that promote maneuverability, we prioritize your comfort in every aspect of the renovation.
  4. Added Property Value: Accessibility renovations not only improve the functionality of your home but also increase its market value. These modifications appeal to a broader range of potential buyers, making your property more desirable in the long run.

We understand that you may have some questions regarding accessible renovations. Here are answers to a few of our frequently asked questions:

Do I need to obtain specific permits for accessibility renovations?

The requirement for permits may vary depending on the nature and extent of the renovation. Our team can secure the permits you require, guiding you through the permit process as needed and ensuring that all necessary approvals are obtained to meet local building codes and regulations.

Can I still live in my home during the renovation process?

This is largely up to your discretion. We strive to minimize disruptions to your daily life during the renovation process. Our team plans the project carefully, ensuring that you can continue living in your home comfortably while the work is underway if you prefer. However, there may be a significant period when you are unable to use your kitchen or bathroom.

When you choose to work with our team, we invest time in understanding your desired modifications, in addition to making suggestions that have proven to be helpful for our other accessible renovation clients.
