Before hiring contractors for significant repairs or renovations, please do your homework first by asking the property owner about their experience with these types of projects. Also, ask whether they would be willing to work with a contractor who specializes in accessibility issues. An experienced contractor will be able to repair existing features that are not well suited for guests with special needs and also create new features that will make your stay as accessible as possible.
