Accessibility Renovations / Visitability / Ageing-in-place Renovations

Accessibility renovations can include simple changes around your home such as swapping out door hardware and taps to a full re-design with widening interior doors, converting an existing room to a bedroom or larger bathroom and adding ramps at the entrances. At Clarke Construction Projects, we understand the accessibility challenges that some homeowners are faced with. Our experts can guide homeowners in choosing cost-effective adaptations to address their unique accessibility needs.

Accessibility Renovations Focus on Safety, Comfort, and Ease of Use

While focusing on safety, comfort, and ease of use, we guide each client through the renovation process to convert their home into a ‘universal design’ that meets each customer’s needs while also improving the resale value of the property.
