Did you know? As many as 95% of commercial buildings violate ADA guidelines, and most property owners have no idea! Ignorance is not a valid defense when you find yourself facing a federal lawsuit or human rights case! The only truly valid defense against an ADA lawsuit is ADA compliance. Let’s talk about avoiding ADA lawsuits and what an ADA concrete contractor can do to help you.
ADA is short for the Americans with Disabilities Act. This legislation is designed to ensure that people with disabilities can have equal access to the same resources as non-disabled individuals. In order to offer equal access, property owners need to consider how disabled people will use their buildings. That means making sure there is accessible parking, installing curb ramps, access routes, and ADA doors that anyone can use regardless of their disabilities. An ADA concrete contractor is a great choice when you need a contractor to make sure that you are meeting all of the requirements laid out in the ADA.
The thing to remember is that the ADA is very precise in its measurements, and it is expected that property owners follow it to the exact letter of the law. Simply ‘trying’ to be more accessible is not enough. You must make the specific changes required to make sure that your building is ADA compliant, and there is almost no margin for error. That’s why a specialist ADA concrete contractor is a better option than a general contractor who may not completely understand how tight the tolerances are for ADA compliance.
Taking the steps necessary to make your building ADA compliant is important for a number of different reasons, but let’s look at some of the specific reasons why your business will benefit from working with an ADA concrete contractor.
If you are unsure about your commercial property’s ADA status, reach out to an ADA concrete contractor to discuss an inspection and come up with a plan to get ADA compliant and avoid facing an expensive lawsuit.
