Helping my dad find the right person to make changes to his house

After my dad had extensive surgery, he had to go to a rehab center for many weeks. While my dad was in rehab, the doctor insisted that variations needed to be made in my dad’s home, but he wasn’t going to be able to walk for many weeks after rehab and that meant using a cane, crutches, or a walker, and my dad needed to be able to access his house so he could continue his rehabilitation. The doctor felt certain that our insurance carrier would help with the changes. I talked to my dad about the house variations and he insisted both of us try the insurance supplier before we call a bunch of high-priced companies. The insurance supplier refused to pay for any of the necessary variations. Since my dad’s condition was going to get better, they did not consider the variations to be necessary. My dad and I looked for a building company that could help make the upgrades. We found a lot of building companies that specialize in ADA compliant upgrades. Most of them were too high priced to be within our budget, but my dad found one unique person online. The building company was just getting started and still new to the business, and he was trying to get jobs, so he was offering great rates and free estimates. He provided to complete all of the ADA compliant upgrades plus necessary construction for half the cost of a professionally licensed supplier. The guy had insurance and he was bonded, so my dad and I decided to give him a try.
