Accessible Living 

One of the most important reasons for a home renovation is to accommodate a family’s changing needs due to illness, injury, the arrival of a little one or to improve home accessibility and independence as we age.

 

Properly renovating a home to accommodate special needs requires a combination of heart and skill. This means truly assessing individual needs and providing superior craftsmanship, quality materials, passionate attention to detail and professionalism to create a totally accessible living environment.

 

DIR Construction & Renovations can provide you with many special home modifications that will improve your comfort, safety, ease of mobility and ability and thereby enhancing the overall quality of living in your home, including:

 

  • Zero-step entryways and threshold-free doorways

  • Wheel-chair ramps

  • Doorway and entrance expansions to accommodate wheelchairs

  • Walk-in tubs

  • Main floor bathroom remodeling- replacing bathtub with shower including Roll-in No Slip for wheelchair bound individuals.

  • Shower safety installations such as fold-down shower seats, easy to reach shower caddies, grab bars

  • Raised toilets with grab bars

  • Wheelchair accessible sinks, bathroom vanities and kitchen counters

  • Shower kits and faucets with “no-scald” balanced pressure and temperature

  • Easy access power outlets and switches

The process starts with a consultation to determine what the needs are, if they are permanent or temporary, what renovations are required and whether the home can accommodate the renovations. Once a budget has been established, a detailed and accurate quotation with estimated costs follows.

"My husband and I had been considering changing one of our bathtubs into a walk-in shower with support bars to make it more convenient and safer for the seniors we have become after living in this old house for 43 years. Seri was recommended by a friend and a very satisfied customer who had recently had him do a similar job on one of their bathrooms. What really surprised me was how quickly and smoothly it all came together with Seri becoming a partner in decision making by sharing all his experience with us. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy with the results. Seri is a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and neighbours. In fact, I would not hesitate to call him again if and when I need a contractor in the future.”
