With a rapidly aging population, the United States is projected over the next few decades to require significant retrofitting of millions of existing homes to meet the needs of senior citizens who have chosen to remain in their own residences as a more attractive alternative to typically short-staffed and very expensive nursing homes or similarly expensive, high-maintenance retirement communities. An increasing number of people of all ages with physical disabilities also are projected to boost demand for ameliorative measures such as motorized stair lifts, wheelchair-friendly access ramps, redesigned bathtubs and other measures intended to protect independence and decrease costs for the many private and government programs that support paid caretakers.
In addition to striving for consistently high quality in more traditional projects such as conventional kitchen and bathroom remodelings or room additions, CBR Construction has remained on the forefront of a continuing industry effort to integrate accessibility requirements into redesigns of existing living spaces and facilities to accommodate a wide range of abilities and expectations. Our team includes trained project experts who understand and anticipate the need for straightforward design adjustments and construction techniques meant to increase accessibility and completely satisfy long-standing requirements set down by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Many homeowners find that the addition of a deck or a patio to an existing home contributes considerably to the utility and beauty of that home. A formerly desolate backyard that once hosted only straggly weeds and a half-filled aboveground swimming pool suddenly gains life as an attractive venue for informal social gatherings, and a well-designed, highly visible patio or deck can help sharply boost a home’s resale value. CBR Construction is well versed in the aesthetic and practical aspects of evaluating the potential for a functional, remarkably comfortable patio or deck. We also are familiar with effective methods and procedures for economically repairing and rejuvenating an existing outdoor deck or patio that may not have been originally installed by the current homeowners.
We can help any homeowner with the decision to install a new deck or patio or possibly to remove an old installation in favor of a complete replacement. Available options for new installations or rejuvenations can include classic treated-lumber floors, steel decking solutions, ceramic tiling, glass-block flooring, dining-table sets, barbeque grills embedded into heat-resistant and fireproof surroundings, soaring skylights and others. Regardless of the budget, we would be happy to discuss the possibility of adding a modern, attractive deck or patio to virtually any yard.
Many older homes still are afflicted with ancient, cheaply constructed wooden garage doors that evoke a bygone era of bulbous automobiles with rocket fins and street-corner baseball games, and even some newer homes may clank and creak unnecessarily from the weary straining of dying garage-door installations. Manufacturers have raced in recent years to provide a dizzying array of attractive, secure garage doors that glide smoothly from the opened position to the closed position and back and that resist unauthorized entries. The garage door strikes many homeowners as a rather visible target for beginning a program of home improvements, and CBR Construction has accumulated considerable experience with replacing substandard installations with updated solutions that can significantly improve the overall appearance of the home and substantially add to the security of the garage against typically unsophisticated, random attempts at unwanted entry.
Popular options for upgraded garage-door installations include lightweight but strong fiberglass or composite doors, higher-security steel or aluminum doors, standard manual roll-up mechanisms, motorized doors with remote controls, beautiful wooden-design doors, all manner of door windows and others. We can even order a highly customized garage door to meet unusual needs or to more closely match a unique home motif.
Most homeowners don’t give much thought to their roofs on a daily basis, but the tales of history and homeowners are replete with accounts of the misery from abominably leaky roofs that almost invite rainy days, poorly constructed or ill-maintained roofs that resist only feebly the fierce tugging of strong winds, clattering roofs that beg for loose tiles to be slapped down with great globs of glue and other immature roofs that shirk their responsibilities. Without a good, strong roof, a home might as well mail invitations to every brewing storm, errant bird and flying pest to take up permanent residence in the rafters. CBR Construction almost specializes in the all-important art of keeping homes safe and snug against the mischievous elements of nature that poke and prod endlessly at roofs.
Our company already firmly insists on using high-quality materials for all projects, but we especially pay attention to the undeniable need for robust, durable materials in attractive roofs that protect the inhabitants underneath from the wild vagaries of the weather and secure the value of the home against the stealthy decay of persistent leaks. Our roofing experts are happy to advise homeowners on the merits of an array of popular roofing options for new or upgraded roofs, including modern ceramic or concrete tiles, metal sheeting, old-fashioned but economical tar and gravel solutions, classic clay tiles and other, more unusual options. We can even install large skylights that invite warm, natural sunlight to flood the peaceful scene below. No matter what may be the roofing needs of a homeowner, we likely already know how to efficiently meet those needs.
