Accessible Home & Bathroom Modifications

Accessible Home Modifications : At Extended Home Living Services , our business is to provide accessible solutions. We help our customers with disabilties and those who are “Aging-in-Place” to remain safely, comfortably and independently in their homes. EHLS has modified thousands of homes with mobility in mind. That's why we are different from other contractors - we are focused on making sure that the modifications will meet your mobility needs without forgoing style or comfort.

Accessible Walk In Shower in Chicago Grab Bars and Handrails: Though simple, properly placed and installed grab bars and handrails can have a significant impact - creating a safe and secure environment. Properly done, these small items can have a big impact. Go to the Grab Bar section of the website to learn more.

Doors and Doorways: Doors and Doorways can often create surprising barriers. EHLS often widens doorways or reverses the swing of doors to create the extra room required. If only a little additional space is needed - “swing-clear” hinges can create that extra 1-1/2" which often makes all the difference. Quite frequently, we replace door knobs with lever handles to provide easier access. Automatic Door Openers – which allow the user to enter / exit without having to touch the door, are often a big help for our customers.

Accessible Bathrooms: Bathrooms create challenges for both those with disabilities and those who are aging in place. EHLS has the resources to go beyond simply re-modeling an existing bath. We also regularly enlarge bathrooms or construct complete bathroom additions. Often, we are simply including accessible features into a luxury bath remodel – and the last thing anyone wants is something that suggests old age or feels institutional. Go to the Accessible Bathroom section of the website to learn more.

Hoistway for Elevator in Chicagoland

Hoistway Construction: In addition to the Elevators and Vertical Platform Lifts that we install – EHLS also constructs the hoistways for the lifts. As both a licensed Elevator and General Contractor, EHLS can complete all phases of your project. Beyond the confidence that our experience and knowledge bring, having a single contractor for all phases of a project avoids any finger pointing and gives the homeowner a single point of contact. We can construct hoistways within the existing home or build an exterior addition to house the equipment.

Room Additions: Room Additions come in all sorts of shapes and sizes – some are plain and simple and others quite complicated. Regardless of the goal, EHLS has the knowledge, skill and experience to create the new accessible space for your needs.

Kitchens: Using the kitchen is often a frustration for our customers, and we know how to help. Options include accessible door handles and cabinets, roll-under countertops and cook-tops, and special cabinets designed for accessibility. EHLS can help make your existing kitchen much more usable or build a complete kitchen addition.

Home Building: EHLS will also build a custom Accessible Home for our clients. We work closely with the architects to design an environment without barriers that will allow everyone in your home to be part of the family. With Construction Managers on staff, we are ready to build your Accessible Dream Home.

Regardless of the scope of the project, careful planning is fundamentally important to the overall success of any construction project. A thoughtfully planned project is much more likely to satisfy your goals, be completed on time and minimize costly midstream changes. Let EHLS put our years of experience to work planning your project.
