Madison Heights, MI: According to a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) report of 2020, structural barriers are some of the biggest challenges facing people with disability in their day-to-day life. CAPS Remodeling, a company with over 40 years of combined experience in remodeling, is changing that reality by launching a home remodeling service to make properties safe, comfortable, and handicap accessible.
With the help of the in-house Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS), the company offers a variety of home modification services making all areas such as bathrooms, main entrances, bedrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and general areas accessible. Before adding features and customizing the home, clients can contact the team via the website, https://www.capsremodeling.com/, for an evaluation.
One of the services to make homes accessible and inclusive to people with disabilities is installing wheelchair ramps. Whether the client is interested in modular aluminum, permanent wood, rubber threshold, or aluminum suitcase ramps, the team follows the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. The skilled team also completes most of the installation in a day, regardless of the specific add-ons or the choice of materials.
In addition, CAPS Remodeling offers stairlift solutions, assisting the client in regaining mobility and enjoying their home (for years to come). When fitting stairlifts, the technicians ensure the new installation is easy to use, has a swiveling seat (for easy exit and entry), and the chair can fold. They also ensure the stairlift can use a battery in a power outage.
To make the bathroom more handicapped and wheelchair accessible, the company adds a wide range of safety accessories and products, such as shower chairs, toilet seat risers, and tub transfer benches. Other special modifications to ensure the bathroom is safe and usable include adding pedestal sinks and installing a slip-resistant floor, handheld shower heads, and roll-under vanities.
When speaking about the company and the services, one client noted: “CAPS Remodeling changed our 1940’s decor bathroom into a handicap accessible modern gem. Most of the work was completed in just one day with minimal inconvenience. I would recommend them for your bathroom update needs.”
Installing grab bars is another service provided by CAPS Remodeling in Michigan. Each installation is per the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guideline, regardless of the client’s choice of textures, styles, and finishes. They also install quality grab bars strictly using ADA-compliant accessories from known and licensed vendors such as American Standard, Kohler, and Delta.
