Let's answer a few questions you may have
First, the tradespersons I use are all licensed and insured. Second, I have been involved in the property business for 8 years. In that time, I have used a lot of different tradespeople. I have had enough time to work with the best. Third we use the best practices recommended by AARP – HomeFit, ACLA – Aging Life Care Association and NAHB – National Association of Home Builders – Aging in Place. Fourth, we are trained by the NAHB with their “NAHB's Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) qualification”.
Compare our “Areas to consider changing” to those recommended by, you will see we using best practices from:
- ACLA - Aging Life Care Association
- NAHB-National Association of Home Builders - Aging in Place
We offer extremely competitive rates, often cheaper than any other Licensed and Insured, generalist tradespersons. Despite the greater training and specialization. Some jobs can involve a lot of money e.g., kitchen and bathroom remodeling, but many good quality of life issues can be addressed inexpensively, e.g.,
- Grab Bars / Handrails
- Raised Toilet Seats
- Non-Slip Strips
- Cutter Clearance
- Door Handles and Cabinet Handles
- Clearer Home Numbers
- Lever Faucet Installation
- Fire Safety, Extinguisher, Smoke / Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Rather than wasting time quoting for jobs we might not get, we specialize in a few areas. The tradespersons are very focused and regularly do similar jobs, we are more efficient. In addition, we want to be goto people for other home related work, such as Home Maintenance.
If you see a lower price per hour than ours, I urge you to ask if they are licensed and insured. Do they have specific qualifications in home adaption?
