The general rule of thumb for ramps is that for every inch of rise you should have one foot of ramp. Most stairs are seven inches high which means that for one stair you should have a seven foot ramp. For this reason ramps can get really big really fast. When a wheelchair ramp is the right solution we provide three main options:

  • Wood: This is what most people think about when considering a ramp. We can build them out of pressure treated lumber or a composite decking like Trex or Azek. We can tie it into an existing deck or have it run from an existing doorway. Whatever the needed configuration we can design and build it. This type of ramp is considered a permanent structure by building departments and is constructed accordingly.

  • Concrete: If you find yourself with just one or two steps into your home a concrete ramp can be the perfect solution. We can design and frame it in such a way that it seamlessly blends into the existing landscape. In fact, most people wouldn’t even think you had a wheelchair ramp when visiting you home.

  • Aluminum-We are a dealer for EZ Access aluminum ramps. Made in America out of 100% aluminum these ramps are sturdy and they will not rust. They require very little maintenance and because of their modular design can be installed much faster when time is an issue. They can also be added too or subtracted from very easily. What many of our clients like is that they require no permanent modifications to the property. They are also considered a temporary structure by building departments and do not require permits.
