Why Finding ADA-Compliant Shower Contractors Is Important

Why You MUST Ensure That Your Milwaukee
Bath & Shower Contractor Is ADA Compliant

Don’t Settle For a Contractor Who Only
Halfway Adheres To ADA Regulations

If you plan to age-in-place, it’s important to ensure that the bath or shower in your Greater Milwaukee home is ADA-compliant.

If your shower isn’t installed to the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA), it can cause you problems down the road.

However, installed correctly and with ADA compliance, your shower area can provide you with the safety and accessibility you might require in the coming years.

And hiring the right contractor can make all the difference in your wet-area remodel.

Not only do we here at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths adhere to ADA regulations, but our attention to detail sets us apart from other home remodelers.

What The ADA Regulates For Your Bathroom Safety

The ADA sets regulations for many bathroom wet-area components, including:

  • Shower Spray Units
  • Roll-In Showers
  • Water Controls
  • Shower Seats
  • Thresholds
  • Grab Bars
  • And More.

Standards are set for everything from large openings for shower compartments to the placement of shower controls and grab bars.

These rules are a guideline to ensure that your home’s shower is installed with the accessibility necessary for those who need it.

You can read the full details of the compliance regulations here on the ADA website.

What ADA Compliance Means For You

When aging in place, your home is where you’ll have certain comforts added and necessary changes made over the years to make your life easier.

Whether for mobility or accessibility, additions and replacements will be made to assist you in maintaining your independence. And when it comes to your safety, showers can be a significant concern.

When showers are installed with ADA compliance in mind, homeowners with changing mobility can use them more easily.

What Can Happen If Your Shower Isn’t ADA Compliant

Without ADA compliance, a whole host of issues could arise, including:

  • Improper Spacing For Entering And Exiting Your Shower.
  • Grab Bars Installed In An Inaccessible Position.
  • Incorrect Wheelchair Clearance.
  • Unreachable Controls.

These problems result from improper installation, and they’re avoided and solved by hiring a contractor who installs showers with ADA compliance as a priority.

Acrylic Is The Go-To Choice For Your ADA-Compliant Shower

Regarding your ADA-compliant shower, acrylic is one of the top building materials in use today. It comes with many benefits that make it a popular choice.

Grout doesn’t stay sealed for long, allowing water penetration and other issues to form within a few years of installing standard tile. With acrylic panels, you can have the familiar look of grout lines without all the trouble they bring to the table.

Plus, your acrylic panels aren’t susceptible to mold or mildew. These panels are built with an active ingredient that inhibits the growth of microbes. In simpler terms – it prevents mold and mildew.

With their built-in anti-microbial technology, acrylic panels offer an easy-to-clean surface and gorgeous, aesthetically appealing style options – with or without the look of tile.

Best of all, it only takes a mild cleanser and a soft cloth to keep your shower looking as good as new.

With our help, your shower can be safe, beautiful, and easy to clean in no time at all.
