Park Ridge Builders is a Certified-Aging-in-Place or CAPS specialist.
What does this mean?
The CAPS designation is awarded by the National Association of Home Builders. Builders are required to take three educational courses taught by a NAHB certified instructor. After successful completion of the courses the CAPS builder must keep up their certification with continuing education classes and credit.
According to the NAHB: "Homeowners want to stay in their homes for the duration. By instituting
simple universal design techniques, professional Certified
Aging-in-Place Specialists can insure that you live in your home
comfortable, safely and independently for as long as you want."
Park Ridge is pleased to be counted among this elite group of builders and looks forward to serving your Aging-in-Place needs.
