Featured Case Study: Aging in Place 

A retired couple, Tony and Sofia, had some challenges with “aging in place” in their quaint Pittsburg, California home. They had owned their home for 40 years, raised their family there and kept it in excellent condition. They wanted to continue living in the same home through their retirement years, focusing on caring for their grandchildren. Replacement windows were a must. With rheumatoid arthritis, opening doors and windows was extremely difficult, if not impossible, for Sofia. Learn how James Carey and Morris Carey, also known as the Carey Bros., accomplished the task.
