Southeast Georgia Remodeling Company Presents Residential Remodeling Trends

Older Americans born right after the Second World War have been the driving force behind the housing market for many years. And it looks like they may be again. This time the remodeling of existing homes may be the segment that grows because of the seniors need for adapted housing.

The growth of the senior adult population and sluggish house sales may lead to many more home remodels. Instead of selling their home and downsizing, the seniors of the future will probably keep what they have and upgrade to accommodate adult children to move in or remodel to meet the needs of the senior years. This can include additional master suites for added privacy or retrofitting bathrooms for safety and ease of use. Overholt Construction in Jesup, Georgia has all the expertise to build or add a master suite to their customers’ specifications. This can allow room for their adult children to live with them if needed.

Remodeling existing homes is one of the great services offered by Overholt Construction, leader in commercial and residential construction in Jesup, Georgia. Another great idea is to add safety features to the family home to help seniors stay there as long as possible. These can include modified toilets, showers, and extra safety hand rails in the bathroom. Home elevators and stair lifts can help make going upstairs much easier for the older adult. Widening of doorways and halls, ramps, and modifications to kitchen counters can make the home wheelchair accessible.

The baby boomers outnumber younger home buyers now and by 2030 will be 20% of the American population. This continued increase will fuel housing remodeling for years.

Going back to three generations under one roof can be a positive result of the collapse of the housing market in 2008.

Families living together can offer emotional and financial support during a difficult time. Older parents can really get to know their grandchildren, like “the good old days”.
