Accessibility – Home Modifications
We now provide reporting, design and construction services for a safe, functional and accessible home for a person who has suffered personal injury, physically challenged or aging in place.
MONK offers detailed reporting for accessible home and alternative living situations. If you, or your client, have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and have sustained an injury, a report will “paint a picture” of what types of modifications are needed to your existing home and provide a detailed quote.
Integrating a stepless entrance into your home can make all the difference. Concrete, wood, aluminium. Choose from a pre-built aluminium ramp or have one of our skilled professionals build a custom ramp or pathway that fits your layout and suits your personal taste.
Maintain your ability to safely and effortlessly access all levels of your home with a lift. We provide stairlifts, home vertical platform lifts and commercial wheelchair lifts. Whether you need a lift to reach an upstairs bedroom or downstairs laundry, a chairlift is a fast, easy solution.
Designing a layout to maximize space and eliminiate barriers is essential to your daily living. Using the appropriate materials is also key in preventing slips, falls or injuries. We offer custom accessible shower systems that are modern and stylish.
When it comes to creating a cooking and dining experience that is safe and barrier-free, the options are endless. We can add simple options to your existing kitchen or redesign your kitchen layout and cabinets for maximum convenience, usage and safety. Counter and appliance height, storage height, handles and controls, sink and dishwasher work center are considered for accessible kitchens.
There are several options available when it comes to handrails. Choices include wood, stainless steel or chrome for interior spaces and treated wood or aluminium for exterior. Towel bars in bathrooms are not intended to be ‘grab bars’. These bar are much stronger and need to be installed properly.
