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 unfortunately had to contact Leone Plumbing due to an unknown leak. They came out right away and found the leak was actually a water line in my refrigerator. There was so much damage and I honestly had no clue what to do. Best part about Andy is that he was able to help out with everything. He explained the insurance process to me and talked to the adjusters for me. He kept me in the loop and he was able to turn my kitchen into a brand new one. I am more than happy with their service and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND their services. They are an honest hard working company that looks out for their customers.

Our submersible sump pump must have burned out a three or four weeks ago and didn't realize it until I noticed wet areas in cracks in the concrete floor in the unfinished area of our basement. I removed the cover of the pump well and the water was up to the top. We immediately started calling plumber companies and Leone was able to dispatch a plumber out the very day we called (4/14/2021). Mike was able to replace the old pump with a new Liberty Sump Pump. Once it was plumbed and a new check valve installed, the new pump worked great to to remove all the water in the well and additional incoming water from the drains. Nothing got wet in the basement. Mike did a great job quickly installing the new pump. Potential catastrophe averted!

So glad I found Leone. Jamison came out and had a look. He diagnosed the problem, explained exactly what needed to be done and how much it would cost. The work was done quickly and efficiently. I've never seen a more beautiful faucet. :) And I don't miss the fact that whenever I watered my yard I also watered the basement with the old leaking faucet.

I have already recommended them to my friends for work they need done. Thanks Leone!
