    Jeff Returns from National Association of Elevator Expo in New Orleans

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Jeff Lavoie recently returned from the NAEC (National Association of Elevator Contractors) expo in New Orleans, LA.

    This annual event displays new products from different manufacturers all over the world. Jeff observed the new line of incline wheelchair lifts from Savaria and the new Waupaca #500 Dumbwaiter. 

    The NAEC is a great way for All Ways Accessible to see other professionals in the industry. Jeff was able to see most of the Symmetry gang and had some fun on Bourbon St. 

    Overall, the expo was a great success. Until next year!

    The Benefits of Using a CAPs Certified Company when Designing a Home

    Last updated 6 years ago

    CAP refers to Certified Aging-in-Place. This designation is applied to any company that has been approved by the National Association of Home Builders for its work in the aging-in-place home modification market. So what does this certification mean and how does hiring a CAPs Certified company benefit you?

    Informed Design Concepts and Philosophies

    By completing the necessary CAPs coursework, homebuilding professionals gain familiarity with construction and architectural concepts that cater specifically to the needs of elderly individuals. These companies will be better equipped than any other professionals in the field to design a home customized to the physical and aesthetic demands of their customer.

    Technical Expertise

    CAPs professionals can maximize the features within a given space and are fully-equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to install home elevators, lifts, wheelchair ramps, and more. Residential remodeling is a highly technical industry and expertise in this specialized area of construction and installation is hard to come by outside of the CAPs program. 

    Superior Customer Service

    CAPs certified companies employ professionals who have a greater understanding of their customers. Elderly homeowners will often find that they are more satisfied with the level of care and customer service they receive from a CAPs organization. Homebuilders who have committed to obtaining CAPs certification are also committed to educating others about the needs of the aging-in-place population.

    Would you like to know more about the CAPs program and how homebuilding professionals and companies become certified? Call All Ways Accessible, a CAPs company, in Stowe at (800) 684-0270 to learn more about how we can help make your home more accessible for you.
