Our Accessibility Construction Service
The average home isn’t built to accommodate the needs of senior citizens or people with mobility disabilities. That’s why at Shift Accessibility home renovators, it’s our mission to make ordinary homes more inclusive. With the integration of aging in place practices and accessible renovations.
Mobility and simple tasks are more challenging in a traditionally designed home (non-accessible), which is where modifications come in to rectify those challenges. There are solutions for every aspect of your home, from wheelchair ramp entrances, to showers, to small things like opening a drawer.
The most common accessible renovations we see are bathrooms, kitchens and most notable whelchair ramp construction. Such rooms involves many specific movements and handling that can easily be overlooked. Such simple tasks as opening a door handle can prove difficult and painful for someone who is less able.
Thinking of absolutely every aspect of someone’s daily life and finding better solutions is our passion. By installing innovative products, working with occupational therapists, and using our creativity we can best fit your home so you can do the things you love. Last but not least, providing these modifications eliminates the difficult decision of moving away from your beloved home.
Wheelchair ramp construction
When most homes are built, accessibility is not the top priority in the design. But for Shift Accessibility, it’s our number one priority. We want to make your life easier. While we understand that a sudden change in mobility can mean big adjustments in nearly every area of your life, high-quality accessibility construction services will minimize the hassles of everyday life. Accessible home renovators will find a solution that allows you to lead a more independent life regardless of your disabilities.
One of the most important components of an accessibility construction renovation is making sure your home can accommodate a wheelchair or other mobility aid. Most likely a wheelchair ramp is needed to safely enter and exit the home. Furthermore, an accessible home renovator will widen walkways and doorways to improve the safety and making the motions easier.
- Not just a ramp
A wheelchair ramp construction isn’t just about making a diagonal path that goes up and down. It’s about making the entrance of a home safe and easy to access. There are a few extra things to consider. Like we mentioned before, we might need to widen the existing path and install a wider door as-well. To ensure a wheelchair of any size can fit and manoeuvre easily on the wheelchair ramp.
Secondly, by installing automatic door openers we further reduce the barrier to pass through doorways by removing the action of pushing or pulling the door, which can prove challenging with someone in a wheelchair. Shift Accessibility home renovators can supply you with the most innovative features you may not have even thought of.
- Acessible wheelchair ramp lighting
We have to think of every type of scenario to be able to implement the best design and features. And lighting is a major priority for accessibility features. What if you will be using the ramp at night when it’S dark? Well of course! Integrating lighting throughout the ramp is a must for this situation to avoid any kind of accident.
Shift Accessibility can do all of this and more! Because of our expertise in home accessibility design, we can make thoughtful recommendations you may not have even thought about but that can still make a major difference in your everyday life.
While there are some devices you can purchase that claim to be easy in-home solutions for decreased mobility, these are not long-term solutions. If you want to transform an ordinary home into an accessible one, you must do it with the help of an experienced accessibility renovation contractor. The results will last for years to come!
