MBC Accessibility Remodeling
We are committed to helping create barrier-free Lancaster County, PA living spaces for the equitable use of anyone and everyone. During a consultation we always discuss future considerations when planning a remodel, not just the here and now.
With that, we are here to help you live independently and safely in your home as long as you want to. Your home should work for your needs, and when you are considering accessible modifications in your bathroom, kitchen or any other room at home, we have the training* and the experience to get the job done right within your budget.
