Accessibility Combines Safety, Convenience & Comfort
A home is a place where all family members should be able to live safely and comfortably. When upgrading your home or rental property to incorporate accessibility features, you’ll want to consider handicap accessible home modifications throughout the house, including the entryways, bathrooms, kitchen, and other living spaces.
What Is The ADA?
The term ADA refers to the Americans With Disabilities Act, passed by Congress in 1987. This act includes guidelines that set forth legal requirements for accessibility and mobility, including for those in wheelchairs or that use a walker.
ADA guidelines apply to public properties, not personal properties such as homes. However, remodeling a home to follow the ADA guidelines can significantly increase the quality of life for a disabled occupant.
Types Of Handicapped Modifications To Consider
Many things can be done to a home or office to improve handicap accessibility. Whether the job is big or small, it is crucial to choose a remodeling company that is also a licensed contractor o ensure the work is up to code and complies with the ADA, especially if you’re outfitting a public space.
