Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center Installs Handicap Bathrooms

Do you need to install a handicap accessible bathroom in your home?

Let Duncan Do It!

If you are taking care of someone elderly or who has special needs, Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center wants to help make both of your lives a little easier by installing a handicap bathroom.

Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center designs and installs handicap bathrooms tailored specifically for the needs of those facing limited mobility as a result of injury or illness.

Handicap Bathroom Assessment

After assessing your specific needs, Duncan’s will take dimensions of your bathroom, installing a door frame that is a minimum of 34 inches wide and levers instead of doorknobs.

Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center follows the guidelines set by the American’s With Disabilities Act, ensuring that there is a five foot turning radius for wheel chairs, but if your space is tight, our home remodeler’s may be able to make due with less. Sometimes the 5 foot turning radius isn’t needed, especially with electric wheel chairs that are easier to turn.

Features such as handicap bathtubs with and barrier free showers are the perfect solution to maintain dignity while living in the home you love.

Handicap Bathtubs & Handicap Shower Installs

Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center offers a variety of handicap bathtub options that offer the most comfortable and convenient ways to safely experience full-length bathing for individuals with disabilities.

A curbless shower install may be a better fit for your needs. Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen center offers options of shower chairs with wheels or built in shower seats. The choice is yours.

We can also have special accommodations such as shower valves that are thermostatically controlled with pressure balance to prevent scalds.

Duncan’s Bath and Kitchen Center takes into consideration the entire handicap bathroom experience from the time that you enter until the time that you leave.

Wheelchair Accessible Bathrooms

From wheelchair sink clearance and wheelchair toilette placement to fitting faucets on the side of the sink to make them easier to reach, and installing infrared faucets that detect motion, Duncan’s Handicap Bathroom Remodelers can design and install a handicap bathroom that meets your specific needs.

Barrier Free Home Remodeling

Modifying homes to meet the special needs of seniors and the disabled

Our population is changing. People are aging, and living more independently. Seniors, veterans, and younger and older persons with disabilities are choosing to stay in their own homes rather than move to assisted-living facilities. Today’s homeowners are now looking for homes that are safer, easier to move around in, and provide a comfortable, barrier-free environment.

DUNCAN—Your Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist

As a CAPS-designated installer, DUNCAN offers aging homeowners an opportunity to remain in their homes as they mature to meet their physical needs. We can remove an existing bathtub and install an easy-access shower in its place; we can adjust countertop heights; and even create multifunctional first floor master suites.

Duncan can incorporate these designs into new construction or on remodeling projects. The concepts of aging-in-place and aging-in-community are beginning to take center stage as a result of the baby-boomer population. Additionally, installing basic accessibility features in new construction will save remodeling dollars in the future.

Who can you rely on to modify your home?

At Duncan, our CAPS professionals go beyond design to address the codes and standards, common remodeling expenditures and projects, product ideas and resources needed to provide comprehensive and practical aging-in-place solutions.
