Accessibility Statement

At Homebuilders, we want to make our services available to anyone who needs them, regardless of what challenges they face.

We've tried to make our site work with technologies like screen readers for the blind, we've tried to make sure our colours do not present a hurdle to the colour-blind or otherwise vision-impaired, and we've tried to make sure our navigation works for all people no matter what devices they may emply to use the internet.

[Document areas where these standards are not met and the reason why.]
