Aging In Place Bathroom Remodeling Services in Westbrook, CT

  1. Assessment and Consultation: The remodeling process  begins with an assessment of the bathroom and consultation with the homeowner to identify their specific needs and preferences. We evaluate factors such as the layout, size, and condition of the existing shower or bath area, as well as the individual’s mobility limitations or concerns.
  2. Design and Planning: Based on the assessment and consultation, we develop a customized design plan that incorporates safety and accessibility features tailored to the homeowner’s requirements. This may include converting traditional tubs into walk-in showers, installing low-threshold or barrier-free shower bases, widening doorways, and incorporating safety grab bars, seating, and non-slip flooring.
  3. Product Selection: The contractor assists the homeowner in selecting appropriate fixtures, materials, and accessories for the remodeling project. This may include choosing durable and easy-to-clean materials for shower walls, floors, and enclosures, as well as ADA-compliant grab bars, shower seats, handheld showerheads, and thermostatic mixing valves for temperature control.
  4. Demolition and Preparation: If necessary we remove existing fixtures, tiles, and fittings to prepare the space for remodeling. This may involve demolition work, plumbing modifications, and electrical updates to accommodate the new design and features.
  5. Installation: We install the new shower or bath features according to the approved design plan. This includes assembling and installing walk-in shower enclosures, shower bases, wall panels, plumbing fixtures, and safety accessories such as grab bars and handrails. The installation process may also involve waterproofing, sealing, and grouting to ensure a watertight and durable finish.
  6. Safety Grab Bar Installation: Safety grab bars are installed strategically throughout the shower or bath area to provide stability and support for individuals entering, exiting, or maneuvering within the space. Grab bars are typically mounted securely to wall studs or reinforced backing using specialized hardware to ensure stability and weight-bearing capacity.
  7. Finishing Touches: Once the installation is complete, we add finishing touches such as caulking, trim, and accessories to enhance the appearance and functionality of the remodeled shower or bath area. We also conduct a final inspection to ensure that all safety and accessibility features meet applicable building codes and regulations.
  8. Clean-Up and Inspection: After the remodeling work is finished, we clean up the work area and conducts a final inspection to ensure that the project meets quality standards and the homeowner’s satisfaction. Any remaining debris or materials are removed, and the bathroom is ready for use.
