Get to know each other first
We start by becoming acquainted with you, your home, and your objectives. Then together, we can begin to identify the solutions that are best for you and your family.

 

Home Evaluation
Depending on your reasons for contacting us, our initial visit may include a home evaluation or assessment. This is a checklist based on the tasks-of-daily-living that every person routinely encounters, such as bathing, cooking, entering and leaving the home, as well as in-home navigation. It helps to identify those areas that either currently or may some day require modifications in order to minimize barriers and provide a safer living environment. We also encourage involvement from health care professionals familiar with your situation when identifying remodeling needs. This will help ensure that your requirements are appropriately represented and adequately addressed.

The Work and Workers
Assuming you choose Accessible Answers LLC to manage your next remodeling project, here’s what you can expect.

Upon signing of contracts, you will be assigned a project manager who will assist you in any remaining decisions relating to your project. This person will be the primary contact for all concerns relating to your project, and will coordinate with all tradesmen subcontractors. This person will also be responsible for resolving any scheduling issues, conflicts, and change orders.

A typical kitchen or bath project will be conducted in the following progressive stages:

There may be scheduled interruptions between some of these stages to allow building inspectors adequate time to inspect and approve moving on to the next phase. Your contract will reflect anticipated schedule and timing related to your project.
