URB, inc. A+ ADA model home concept

Affordable Appealing Accessible

Understanding, ADA (Americans with Disability Act) defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities are important to appreciating Urb, Inc’s, A+ approach in our ADA model home concept.

URB, inc. believes it takes much more than wider doorways, support bars, and lower countertops to make a house that is ADA adapted into a home for a person with a disability.

Our A+ concept is more than a functional space for people with disabilities. The home will be a safe environment to help live one’s life to the fullest, a very comfortable setting where the fondest memories will be made and most likely will be the homeowners largest asset that can increase in value because of its appeal to more than homebuyers with disabilities.
