Who We Are and What We Do

Aardvark Adaptive Modifications is a full service Accessible Design, Consulting and Contracting Firm located in Pittsburgh which provides products and services related to creating barrier free environments.

We are owned and managed by people with disabilities and we bring this first person perspective to every product and service. We are “the accessible door experts”.

Aardvark Adaptive Modification, LLC, is owned and operated by Roy Miller.  Roy, himself, is a double amputee so he possesses first-hand knowledge of the needs and frustrations suffered with a disability.  Roy founded Aardvark when he became frustrated when trying to find someone to remodel his home to suit his disability needs.  He decided there had to be a better way, so he started Aardvark.  Roy graduated from Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA, with a BS in Business Administration and is a registered Master Plumber.  He also has a City of Pittsburgh Heating and Air Conditioning license, along with a State of Pennsylvania General Contractor license.  He was the previous owner of a third generation contracting company that had been doing business in the Pittsburgh area for over 100 years.  He, himself, has over 44 years experience as a contractor and still has retained many of his original plumbing and heating customers.   Roy and Aardvark can help you with all your disability needs.  Aardvark’s mission is to keep you in your home, not a nursing home.

Roy Miller, the owner of Aardvark, previously owned a 3rd generation contracting company that had been doing business in the Pittsburgh area for over 100 years. After suffering a severe disability, Roy became frustrated trying to find a person to come and install specific hardware in his house only to find that what was installed wasn’t actually functional or convenient to his needs. He decided that there had to be an easier way.

Testimonials

Just a note to again thank you for your help in getting that PL-50 to me so fast. It came today at about 1:30 PM and I had it installed and running by 4:30 PM. It looks great and works as well as it looks. You helped make my wife’s life a little better.
Wanted to thank you for the beautiful and extremely useful ramp that was put in.  Kevin Q. stopped by to level the ramp with blocks of wolmonized pieces of lumber.  He is extremely polite and an excellent asset to your business. Thank you for everything.
I wanted to thank Aardvark Adaptive for the estimate. I will send it to Lifespan to see what they say, and I will send it with the PATF application. I just hope this helps b/c it will at least cover half the steps...and If I can get the ramp back together around the house...this would be about 3/4 of all the steps done....which would be great if this can get done this spring. I will let you know what they say..when I hear back from them. I totally trust the people at Aardvark, and I know they will do whatever they can to help my dad out when all he has gotten was NO NO NO....I will have my fingers crossed that between the two places/grants that this will get done.. I will also let you know when I send in the PATF application.
This photo was taken last month when we were almost finished with the remodeling job. I had some painting to finish. Although the bathroom is small, the shower access is fine, and it is very nice. The fold down bench is hiding behind the curtain (which is wonderful.) I don't think I will need a door after all. Thank you for helping me with this order! I would recommend Best Bath products and your company to others!
I am writing to advise you of a contractor in Pittsburgh that I have used for adaptive modifications to my home.  After wasting an entire year with a contractor whom I trusted to accommodate my needs for an accessible bathroom, I found AARDVARK.  Roy Miller, the President and owner, was both knowledgeable and skilled in his assessment of the project.  His staff was prompt, courteous and efficient in their work.  He also constructed a customized lift, the DeMi wheelchair lift, to be used in my garage so that I can access the house from the car.  I have had to go out in inclement weather for the past twenty years, just to get to my car. To say that i am a "satisfied" customer, does not do Mr. Miller justice.  Therefore, it is without reservation, that I highly recommend Roy Miller and AARDVARK for any adaptive modifications that your clients  may need.
