Here are some frequently asked questions that we have encountered… along with our answers. If your particular concerns are not addressed here, please feel free to contact us directly. We will make every attempt to provide you with the necessary information.

Q: I anticipate only needing temporary alterations for wheelchair access into and within my home. Do you lease ramps and other removable equipment?

A: Yes. We offer a modular ramp system that’s designed for both temporary and permanent use which can be leased on a ½-yearly basis. It’s possible we can even modify a first floor room in your home to temporarily serve as a fully functioning wheelchair accessible bathroom.

Q: My whole family is in perfect health. Why would I consider contacting Accessible Answers LLC for my next remodeling project?

A: Our Design-For-Life approach to remodeling addresses the long-term concerns many people do not consider until they are directly faced with them. Let’s say you just purchased a home with a 30 year mortgage. Chances are you are not thinking too much about what your needs will be 30 years from now. Even if you are healthy and many years away from retirement, there are things you can do as part of your next remodeling project that can easily adapt to possible later needs. With a little remodeling foresight, (we like to call it “Premodeling”), Accessible Answers LLC can help you avoid unnecessary and costly alterations in the future.

Q: It’s an unpredictable economy. Shouldn’t I wait until things improve before taking on a large remodeling project?

A: Maybe you just purchased your home, and have little-to-no equity. Or perhaps you are unsure about the stability of income you depend on to make mortgage payments. In this case, if you don’t have an urgent need to modify your home, then the responsible answer is probably “yes”. In this case it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach, until you are comfortable with your finances again”.

On the other hand, for the right people, this is an ideal time to remodel. This economy has caused a lot of quality tradespeople to be more readily available. They are eager to keep busy, and are now more than ever, willing to give customers the attention they deserve. You can likely expect sooner start dates, and even benefit from fewer delays caused by contractors spreading themselves too thin.

Q: I’m afraid it may be too expensive to customize my current home to meet my access needs. Why shouldn’t I avoid all that expense by just selling my home and moving into an assisted living facility?

A: For many people, there is simply no place like home. But if you prefer to look at this question strictly from a dollars-and-cents perspective, you will find that modifying your home can be a far less costly alternative than the expenses related to selling, moving and the ongoing costs of assisted living.
You may also want to consider the value of your home in the current real estate market compared to recent stronger times. An eventual rebound in the market may actually reward your patience by reimbursing you for those alterations. Moreover, the improvements themselves can build additional equity in your home as well.
