What is Universal Design ? Roberts says

“Universal design is all about making a home comfortable and safe for everyone”

“Approaching universal design with a client can raise eyebrows, I can’t say ‘wow you’re getting old, i think you need grab bars’ But I do ask a lot of questions about their needs and concerns, and most people have them, they may not have an older or disabled person in the family, but they might have a toddler or visiting grandparent”

NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) Universal Design Certified Professional program measures skill and expertise not only valued by other professionals, by consumers as well. Highly respected by those who have achieved the designation, the UDCP program identifies professional remodelers who have undergone comprehensive review and testing in areas of universal design and remodeling.
