Transforming Access and Utility for a Safer, More Functional Home

Safer, More Functional Home

Poor Access to Home and Safety Concerns

Our client faced significant challenges with their home’s accessibility and safety. The entrance to the house, particularly from the side and rear, was challenging to navigate, raising safety concerns. The interior space felt cold, and the porch area was underutilized. The absence of a laundry facility on the first floor further complicated daily chores.

Enhancing Access and Reducing Steps

W.E. Davies & Sons Remodeling designed a solution that significantly improved the home’s accessibility. By reducing the number of steps required to enter the house, we gave the homeowner relief and ease.

Safety Features and Usability
Installing a new, up-to-code railing system greatly enhanced safety, ensuring secure and easy access. Additionally, the converted space, now heated and conditioned, eliminated its previous cold storage function, transforming it into a versatile, functional area.

First-Floor Laundry Convenience
One of the significant improvements was the inclusion of a laundry area on the first floor. This addition addressed the functional gap, making household chores more manageable and less physically taxing for the homeowner.

The crew was professional, friendly, and communicated with us at every step of the way. Results were exactly what we were looking for.

A Beautiful and Functional Transformation

The end result is a living space that not only looks beautiful but is also functional and safe. The homeowner can now properly and safely store items in the newly conditioned area, which offers versatility for various uses, including the convenient first-floor laundry.

I had an excellent experience with W.E. Davies. They worked with me to keep costs manageable for a complete bathroom overall and to incorporate into the design, some features that I really wanted, but that weren't readily available. I think that they went out of the way to ensure that I was pleased with the end product.

W.E. Davies helped us with a complete kitchen and bathroom remodel which included relocating our laundry. The entire team was professional, friendly, and did an outstanding job. Davies and their subcontractors delivered what was promised. We look forward to bringing them back for our next project.

We couldn’t be happier with every aspect of our addition. Wonderful people to work with, and fair. At the end of the project they discovered we had overpaid. We got a dandy refund. Now that shows honesty. The work was top quality.
WE Davies utilizes our services to remove asbestos they come into on their job sites. They are courteous, professional, and always timely in their responses and communications. We welcome their phone calls to our business. I also enjoy working with Kyle at NARI of Madison.

Our project (a bathroom remodel) was handled smoothly and efficiently by Davies & Sons and was completed in a timely manner. The carpenters (especially Tim), tilers and painters were skilled - the job site was always cleaned at the end of the day - and very easy to work with! We heartily recommend W.E. Davies & Sons for any project.

W.E. Davies company was recommended to us by another contractor. This was our first time using a building contractor, and we were not disappointed.Throughout the whole planning process they were extremely helpful listening to what we wanted and sharing ideas.The quality of their work, and sticking to schedule were very important to us and they delivered on both accounts. Our kitchen looks great, and exceeds our expectations. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality contractor.
