How do you find a reliable contractor for a wheelchair accessible bathroom remodel? Every contractor we've talked to are just sales men and have no idea what is really needed. We are not made of money and it shouldn't cost 10,000 just for a shower.
Not specifically for wheel chair access, but we found talking to and getting an estimate from a few of the larger Plumbing companies here, gave us good ideas on what size fixtures could be used in the space. Then we went with a plumber that we found trustworthy and looking after our best interest.
Moving possible doors, heating ducts or changing drain or water lines can be costly, so avoiding as much change to make things still work would be cost effective. Bathroom remodels seem to never be cheap, as the fixtures and plumbing/drain lines all cost a good amount (for quality that works) And finally a good flooring surface is one of the finishing touches.
Your local housing/remodel/permit dept should have some guidelines if that is what you are looking for.
Finally depending on your needs and for how long they will be necessary, sometimes the changes cannot be done cost effectively. Thus looking for a different home can sometimes be a better solution, sorry to say.
