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.

Fantastic experience with Andy. When we were flooded out, though he was very busy already, he responded immediately and took the time to ask the right questions and diagnose the issue. He offered his immediate help and we are back up and running! Very professional and understanding. This will be the first place I call from now on for any work needed.

I called Leone because I had sewer water in my basement. Two guys came to my house and spent a couple hours snaking my sewer drain, but unfortunately couldn't clear it. The next step was to install a lot line clean out (which was an entirely new concept for me). Andy took time to explain it and answer my questions, and we decided to go ahead with this project. Andy handled getting the utility lines staked, acquired necessary work permits, coordinated the inspection with the City, and when the job was done he communicated with the County to ensure they would come back to my house to unclog the sewer. The crew that handled the work (digging up my yard and installing the lateral pipe) showed up when they said they would and worked with great care and professionalism to ensure the job was done right and within the timeframe that was explained to me. They took pictures of everything and kept me informed throughout the process. The County did show up later that afternoon, as expected, and cleared the stoppage.

We called Leone plumbing because we had a water leak and zero clue where it was coming from. Our ceilings were full of water and floors ruined!! They came out same day found the leak and repaired it. After all the damage from the water we needed ALOT of work done. New floors up stairs and down stairs the ceiling replaced and new counter tops! Lucky us they are a one stop shop! The next day they had someone come out and do and estimate and had supplies ordered in that week!! We had family from out of state staying with us so our house was a bit cramped and Leone plumbing was more than accommodating when it came to what time they could start and what rooms to start. Very respectful workers and very friendly! Definitely something you do not see that often anymore in that trade!! Very happy with their work!!!
