What’s the solution?

An idea that is gaining traction with homeowners is to make sure you spend your money on things that will give you both ease of use and reduce your costs.

Aging In Place.

As Baby Boomers near retirement, their thoughts turn to ways to “age in place”. With 73% of people saying they prefer to stay in their home as long as possible, one way they’re doing this is by renovating their homes to meet Universal Design standards.
