Aging-In-Place Remodeling constructs and installs ramps of all types. Whether a client is looking for an aluminum, modular ramp or a custom, built-in ramp we have the knowledge and products to accommodate any challenge your residence may present. As one of the biggest ramp contractors for the San Diego VA we have the experience to know which ramp will work best given the site conditions and a person’s specific mobility level.
Usually the biggest decision a homeowner needs to make is whether they want a modular ramp or a ramp that is built specific to their home and commonly constructed out of wood and/or concrete. Modular ramps are made out of aluminum and can be installed and removed with little impact on the surrounding landscape. Custom ramps are usually more labor intensive and more expensive, but they look better and can actually add value to the house when installed correctly. Modular ramps tend to be best suited for individuals who are looking for a short-term solution (less than 2 years), such as those who are recovering from an injury.
A Quick Note about All Types of Ramps:
The general rule of thumb for ramp layout is that there needs to be one foot of ramp for every inch of rise. For example, if you have 14” of rise from ground level to the top of a stair landing then it is recommended that your ramp be at least 14’ in length. This rule of thumb helps us to achieve the ADA recommended slope for a ramp. There are situations where a ramp may be too long to fit the location where it is needed and a vertical lift may be a more appropriate solution.
