Aging in Place Remodeling Guide

Hiring a Design-Build Remodeler vs. a New Jersey General Contractor

Choosing a high-quality design/build contractor is the most important decision you’ll make during the aging-in-place renovation process.

The design/build method allows you to work with the same company from the planning phase through construction completion. General contractors, on the other hand, will manage your project but hire subcontractors to do different aspects of the job. This can lead to miscommunication, delays, and extra costs.

At JMC, our experienced in-house design team helps you plan every detail of the project. Then, our certified construction crew delivers meticulous craftsmanship to bring the design to life. We strive to simplify your renovation, make your budget go further, and help you maximize the benefits of your home improvement project.

Aging-in-Place Remodeling Accessibility Icon

Improved accessibility:

Improve accessibility in your home with wider hallways and doorways, stairless entries and hallways, large spaces in bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens for maneuvering, and/or re-designing the kitchen, bedroom, and bath to be on a single level.

Aging-in-Place Remodeling Bathroom Icon

Improved functionality:

High-use areas such as the bathroom can be improved with curbless showers and walk-in tubs for safety, non-slip flooring and bath surfaces, grab bars or safety rails in the shower and tub areas, benches and accessible storage options, and comfort-height toilets.

Aging-in-Place Remodeling Counter Icon

Improved lifestyle:

Adjusting countertops and work areas in the kitchen and bathrooms are a great way to improve the lifestyle of you or your aging loved one, as well as considering side-swing ovens and drawer-style dishwashers, easy-to-use hardware, and low-maintenance interior and exterior surfaces.

Aging-in-Place Remodeling Lighting Icon

Improved ease-of-use:

Safety and comfortability can be improved by re-designing or adding accessible outlets and switches or even additional lighting in accessible locations, and adding easy-to-use appliances, electronics, and HVAC systems.
