Door Widening/Automatic Door Openers
Door widening and an automatic door opener help overcome the barrier of small doorways in most homes. As a general contractor, we can remove your existing doorway, and by widening the door frame, we can enlarge the opening making it accessible for a person in a wheelchair or any person requiring a bigger opening. We can also move existing light switches or outlets, and install a beautiful 32 or 36 inch doorway. We can match your existing door style and color and even add flooring to match your existing flooring. Barn doors have also become quite popular and can add a nice splash of design to any doorway.
Expandable or offset door widening hinges can also add 1.5 to 2 inches of extra width to your existing doorway. This saves the expense of construction and your doorway will no longer be a barrier. This is great improvement to your home that will add value for many years to come.

The combination of widening a door frame and the installation of an automatic door opener and closer achieves the required mobility for anyone that relies on a wheelchair for mobility. Door widening in general can help just about anyone that simply requires more space. A wider door also makes it easier for a caregiver to guide someone in need between rooms within a home.
For some, automatic door openers grant a mobility challenged person the independence they deserve.
