ADA Bathroom Remodeling Services in New York City
The ADA (American with Disabilities Act) is a civil rights law that was established in 1990 to prevent discrimination against Americans with disabilities. As it relates to home remodeling, this law sets construction guidelines to help ensure individuals with disabilities can function safely in their homes. For example, a bathroom that follows ADA guidelines features:
- A toilet seat that is between 17-19 inches from the floor and is centered between 16 and 18 inches from the side wall.
- Enough space (a circle of at least 60 inches around the side wall) to accommodate a wheelchair.
- At least 30 inches of access to the sink that is not affected by a swinging door.
