Handicap/Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Remodel

ADA Bathroom Remodel   As you live in your home for an extensive period of time, you may have found that your lifestyle tends to slowly change. With this, the functionality of your home can become less and less useful. There are several things that can be done to enhance your home or bathroom’s ability to serve your lifestyle. One of those is a handicap/wheelchair accessible remodel.

What makes your bathroom handicap/wheelchair accessible?
  • 36 inch doorways
  • Ramps for any change of elevation
  • 5 foot turning radius in bathrooms
  • No thresholds to enter and exit showers
  • Sinks should not be mounted more then 34 inches from finished floor
  • Sink knee clearance of 27 inches from the finished floor
  • Sink should be 30 inches wide
  • Insulation around exposed plumbing
  • 48 inch clearance from toilet to finished wall in front
  • 42 inch clearance from center of toilet to sink
  • 36 inch toilet compartments
  • Grab bars installed between 33 and 36 inches off the floor behind and next to toilet
  • Grab bars installed in shower between 33 and 36 inches off the floor
  • Shower have controls between 38 and 48 inches off finished floor
  • Shower head/hand held minimum 18 inches off of the side wall
Although a fully handicap accessible home can entail a large number of modifications, it does not necessarily mean that all of them need to be made to accommodate your needs. Typically, our bathroom remodel customers choose a subset of the above specifications to fit their needs.

In December, an older couple that has lived in the Rochester area for their entire lives contacted us because their powder room was not functional according to their needs anymore. The bathroom’s design created a space that lacked in wheelchair accessibility.

Some of the work done for this bathroom remodel included the following:
  • A complete tear out of the existing bathroom
  • Relocation of the door side to accommodate the new ramp built from the kitchen to the living room
  • Relocation of a wall to accommodate the new walk-in shower
  • Reversal of where the toilet and vanity were originally
  • Grab bars installed on the walls next to the toilet and inside the walk-in shower
Upon completion of the remodel, the Rochester couple provided us with feedback that they were extremely satisfied. They mentioned that they are able to make use of their bathroom in a much more convenient and practical manner.

I called Leone Plumbing after my 89-year-old father tried fixing an outdoor faucet himself. After going to several hardware stores to look for the parts, he realized there was no way he was going to find them because his house was built in 1958. I called Leone plumbing and talk to the owner, Andy. He sent someone out within a day to fix the leaking faucet. The new faucet is amazing and so easy to use. Leone Plumbing made my dad a happy person. Thanks for your expedited service and great prices!!!

Leone Plumbing & Heating really made a difference in my bathroom. Josh, Adam & Jamison were very professional in the work that they performed. Josh updated our bathroom by replacing my tub and did a tile installation. Replaced the vanity and toilet. Jamison replaced other faucets in my home. I will be recommending Leone Plumbing & Heating to everyone that I know.

We called Leoni Plumbing to help us solve a problem with a drain that was blocked. It was a major job and they assessed it, diagnosed it and were able to fix it. They were efficient, polite, respectful and did a great job. I will always call them first if we ever need help again. You'll be happy you called them to help you.
