As time goes by, the rooms in our homes may not fit our needs the way they once did. In the kitchen, cabinets become out of reach, appliances inaccessible, and pathways too narrow. Your kitchen’s accessibility may not be as good as it could be and right now is the perfect time to remodel to fit your lifestyle needs. If you have bending, reaching, or grabbing limitations, Fort Rock Construction can help redesign your kitchen around you.
Many times, those in wheelchairs or who are movement impaired must use external tools to grasp objects in the kitchen. This is inconvenient and unnecessary. Narrow pathways can get banged up and damaged if they don’t give you sufficient clearance. And stoves are also an issue when the controls are behind the burners causing dangerous burn and fire hazards. All of these problems and more can be fixed with a kitchen renovation.
With a kitchen that’s designed to meet your needs, you can feel more independent and functional. For example, Fort Rock Construction can lower your countertops and your cabinets while rearranging and replacing old appliances as necessary. Even something as simple as stacking the oven and microwave together or raising the dishwasher for easy loading and unloading can make life a whole lot easier.
Remodeling your kitchen shouldn’t be a stressful or daunting task; it should relieve you of the burdens in your kitchen. Please contact us to get started on your kitchen remodel – we’re here to help!

Summer weather is upon us and that means you will most likely be turning on your home’s cooling systems. Here are some tips about your roof that can help save you money not only during the summer months, but also during the winter freeze as well. According to a survey done by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), almost half of the money spent on utility bills goes towards heating and cooling. A poorly insulated roof can allow too much heat into a home during the summer and allow that heat to leave when winter comes.
When considering which type of roof to place on your home you need to keep in mind your location and weather patterns. A dark-colored roof tends to absorb more heat which is better suited for colder climates. Conversely, a light-colored roof often reflects heat and sunlight and is better for warmer climates. If you already have a well-insulated roof and don’t want to spend the money on a new one, you can buy roof coatings which are designed to decrease the temperature on the surface of your roof by 50-80°F.
Finding the right roof type and insulation material is only half the battle. Choosing the right contractor for your needs is the other half and that’s where we can help. Fort Rock Construction is here to assist you with all of your construction related projects. To get started on your next project, please contact us!
