We’ve had clients over the years who’ve needed special modifications to their home due to a physical disability.

The BC Rebate for Accessible Home Adaptations (BC RAHA) program provides financial help in the form of rebates to eligible low-income households to complete home adaptations for independent living.

You could receive up to $17,500 in financial assistance if you qualify.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_btn title=”Call Now For Free Estimate – (604) 847-0994″ style=”gradient-custom” gradient_custom_color_1=”#2a8a9c” gradient_custom_color_2=”#065f70″ shape=”square” size=”lg” align=”left” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-mobile” add_icon=”true”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section bg_image=”https://masterpainting.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/dsc7754.jpg” bg_position=”center center” bg_gradient=”radial” video_color_mask=”#2a8a9c” gr_end=”#065f70″ video_opacity=”0.85″ top_shadow=”true” padding_top=”382″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][vc_row_inner is_fullwidth_content=”false”][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h1″ color=”#ffffff” size=”” force_font_size=”true” size_phone=”42″ font_weight=”bold” font_style=”normal” txt_transform=”none” margin_bottom=”5″ font_family=”none” responsive_align=”left”]RAHA Renovation Trends of 2021[/mk_fancy_title][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h3″ color=”#ffffff” size=”” force_font_size=”true” size_phone=”28″ font_weight=”300″ font_style=”italic” txt_transform=”none” margin_bottom=”32″ font_family=”none” responsive_align=”left”](That We Do!)[/mk_fancy_title][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section padding_top=”64″ padding_bottom=”32″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][mk_divider style=”padding_space” margin_top=”128″ margin_bottom=”64″][mk_fancy_title size=”” force_font_size=”true” size_phone=”31″ font_weight=”400″ font_style=”normal” txt_transform=”capitalize” margin_bottom=”5″ font_family=”none” responsive_align=”left”]Wheelchair
