At Clayton, we are proud that many of our home models can be modified with optional features to accommodate people of all ages and diverse backgrounds.
Although the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements do not apply to the type of residential homes we build, many of our facilities offer certain features that can be added to our home models to enhance use by the disabled and improve the general safety of our homes.
When you buy your new home, ask your friendly home consultants about these options, which are often available as optional upgrades.
Grab bars in the bathroom can improve home safety for every member of the family by helping prevent harmful falls. Ask about grab bars for your shower and toilet.
