Description

Owner Joe Norwood, a Chapel Hill–based contractor and Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), helps people live and age comfortably, conveniently, independently, and safely in their own homes.

An individualized evaluation process involves a professional assessment using a 117-item checklist, which includes both the interior and exterior of your home. The checklist provides a comprehensive picture of immediate and possible future needs to support aging in place rather than moving to a more expensive housing alternative.

CAPS-certified professionals have completed extensive training and testing by the National Association of Builders. They are trained to help people choose from such options as improved lighting, easy-to-open door handles, simple touch plumbing, slip-resistant flooring, entry and exit ramps, energy-saving smart-home features, kitchen and bath renovations, grab bars, exterior even-surface walkways, low-maintenance landscaping, and automatic whole-house emergency backup power.

 

What Your Neighbors Are Saying:

"I would recommend Joe Norwood of Manor House Renovations. He rebuilt my neighbor's <home> and restored mine."

What Your Neighbors Are Saying:

We recently moved into Fearrington Village and had some concerns about our gutter helmets overflowing. We contacted The Aluminum Company of North America [Carolina] about the lifetime warranty we inherited. Sammi Hanna, president of the company, responded quickly and sent Joe Nemeth to look at our concerns. Joe was knowledgeable and inspected our entire gutter system at no charge, offering his evaluation and advice. We were relieved to learn that the gutters were sound and needed no repairs. We were very impressed at the timeliness and professionalism of this company's staff and would recommend them highly.”
