Accessibility Construction and Remodeling Services

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Public Buildings

In 1990, the Americans With Disabilities Act legislation was passed to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities. Under this Act, discriminating against a person with disability is illegal, especially in the circumstances involving employment, communication, and government activities as well as in any forms of transportation and public accommodation.

After 1990, new buildings were required to be mobility aids-accessible, which is why existing buildings were required to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. All public and commercial buildings need facilities such as ADA-compliant handicap ramps, bathrooms, kitchens, and grab bars, as well as 36" doors for wheelchair access.

Private homes are not required to be ADA compliant, but they should be if requested by homeowners, insurance companies, or by people receiving government assistance. Residential properties can be modified so they can be accessible to people with disabilities. ADA-compliant facilities aid homeowners or anyone living in the area and it makes their lives easier.

Important Reminders

Floor coverings sometimes can be an impediment for people with disabilities and many times a low turf, flat or even surface is required to ease movement of a wheelchair inside a house.

  • Interior and exterior structural modifications to ease access, open up, or create new spaces.
  • Conversion to a disability-friendly kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and bedroom with pull-down fixtures or accessories (Rev-A-Shelf).
