Homeowners have a lot of ramp options to choose from these days, ranging from extra-durable galvanized steel ramps to lightweight portable ones. For more information about the different types of home handicap ramps available, continue reading.
Many people that have difficulty walking or who use a wheelchair ramp prefer wooden ramps. Wooden ramps are simplistic and are only constructed with wood and anti-slip materials, such as tread-grip aluminum sheeting. While some homeowners choose to build these ramps themselves, it is always better to have a professional handle the construction process, as this will prevent injury or structural deficiencies from occurring
Galvanized Steel Ramps
If you want a ramp that is strong and that will last for years, look no further than one that is made from galvanized steel. These ramps are relatively easy to maintain and will not rust after being exposed to snow or rain. Because of their patterned-surface design, galvanized steel ramps are easy to walk on without slipping.
One of the most popular types of home ramps is the aluminum ramp. In addition to being incredibly durable, aluminum ramps can be set up on nearly any residential entryway. Depending on your preferences, you can either order a pre-made aluminum ramp or have one custom-built for your house.
Portable ramps are useful for individuals who frequently go places and need to have a ramp with them at all times. These ramps can be set up on the walkway to the front door or be taken in vehicle to another location to be used temporarily. Fiberglass, aluminum, and heavy-duty plastic are some of the materials used for building portable home ramps.
