For our client newly in a wheelchair, it became apparent that a bathroom renovation would be necessary to allow him to continue to live an independent lifestyle. To increase accessibility, we installed a zero-threshold shower, altered the vanity height, and installed grab bars.

Zero-threshold, or barrier free, showers require special planning and installation to ensure they are properly installed. Our team is trained in the installation of Schluter Systems, which is the premium waterproofing shower system. These types of showers also often require additional structural alterations to the floor joists, which was the case here. This beautiful shower is thoughtfully designed to include details such as linear drain which a wheelchair can roll over, appropriately placed grab bars, niches, and hand shower.

We were glad to be able to provide a safe and accessible space for our client, while also ensuring it fit his style. He was thrilled with the result!

Your Vision Our Expertise

The functional layout (was my favourite part of the overall renovation)

I cannot say enough about the process from start to finish AND the finish product with this company. So many people roll their eyes when you ask them about a renovation. We actually had fun doing a major layout change and kitchen renovation! The staff are efficient, pleasant, tidy, respectful. Workmanship and attention to detail are top notch. Nothing but raves from all that have seen it. Doesn’t even feel like my house!! Thanks to Tyson and his team!!!

We knew that we had to renovate our 40+ year old kitchen, but the thought was daunting… hiring a contractor, dealing with permits, plumbing, electrical… not to mention the cost. Thankfully we found Hammerdown, and Tyson handled all these details for us! We really appreciated the benefit of their interior design expertise. And the crew was great – all were respectful of our home and worked hard to transform our kitchen. Tyson built a great working relationship with us, and he devoted the necessary time and attention to ensure that our project was worry-free, done on time, and that we got great value for our money. Thanks to Tyson and the Hammerdown crew, our new kitchen is amazing! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hammerdown to anyone who’s looking to renovate.
