Finding the Right Contractor for Your Aging-in-Place Remodel

Finding the Right Contractor for Your Aging-in-Place Remodel

CAPS Certification

Certified aging-in-place specialist (CAPS) contractors can create homes that meet your specific needs because they’ve gone through training and other learning programs to improve their skills. The NAHB directory is where you can find CAPS contractors, but you can also get direct referrals from friends and neighbors.

G.M. Roth Design Remodeling is a CAPS-certified contractor with decades of experience building homes that help older adults remain independent and safe. Our decades of experience and knowledge helped us build numerous homes that keep seniors happy, comfortable, and safe for years.


Contractors can only deliver what you need if they can empathize and get along well with you. This is important because you’ll work together for weeks or months in various conditions and stressful situations, so you’ll need someone easy to talk to.


Verify your contractor’s information. Ask for their full company name, physical address, and phone number. Then, ask for the details of their past clients who are willing to endorse their work for you. Once you’ve called them, ask the previous clients about their projects’ completion date, the contractor’s behavior and attitude, cleanup routines, and other service-related questions.

Take note that CAPS companies are licensed to do home remodels for older adults. They can give you a complete copy of all the subcontractors they work with, verify their workers’ compensation and personal liability coverage, and have no pending complaints at the Better Business Bureau.
