Frequently asked questions
Call us at (858) 206-8225 or contact us here. In a few minutes we can get an idea of your needs and give you a fairly accurate estimate of your cost over the phone. We can set up an appointment to come by your home for a free consultation. When we arrive, we will take the time to discuss your situation, inspect the installation areas, and determine the best solution for you. We bring a variety of high-quality grab bars with us. You even have the option of having your bars installed the same day.
There are two considerations. First is the diameter of the bar. We will bring different bars with us so that you can determine which feels the best in your hand. Second is the length of the bar. The entry bar is usually 18 to 24 inches. The bar inside the enclosure is 24 to 48 inches. We bring bars to you for you to touch and see. We can hold up bars in your shower as a visual example of the coverage each bar can provide.
Yes. There are several styles that help keep your hand from slipping when wet or soapy. We always carry Peened bars from Moen. They feature a subtle texture that reduces slips. Other manufacturers have a heavier texture (knurled) that is popular to have installed on the exterior of the home. We will bring a sample board of our finishes so you can try before you decide.
We can usually come by your home within a couple of days from your initial call. If you need immediate service, let us know and we will do our best to help you right away. We carry a nice selection of bars with us. You can have them installed the same day we visit you for your consultation.
No, we always carry a variety of bars and tools to help us get the job done right, no matter what we might encounter.
We would be happy to install bars you already have, provided they meet ADA specifications. Click here to check. ADA grab bar requirements. Your installation includes the consultation we provide when installing our own bars.
-Will the bars rust in my shower?
No, all the bars we carry are made from stainless steel by Moen. All the hardware we use is also stainless steel and will resist normal oxidation.
Anchoring into a stud is the ideal mounting method. It will always provide the most secure anchor. However, when a stud is not available we use special mounting hardware that exceeds the ADA requirement that the bar support 250 pounds. This allows us to put the bar where it will be most helpful, rather than just where the studs are.
