Wheelchair ramps are becoming more necessary everyday as the baby boomer generation is very active, they realize they are getting older and deciding they want to stay in their home and understand they may need some help. Ramps provide safe and reliable home access for users with walkers as well as wheel chairs, power chairs, and scooters. There are many types of ramps to fit your individual needs.

Barrier free Modifications understands, there are times and situations when installing a ramp is the only, best, safest solution. There are several types of ramp options available for you.
Wood Ramps definitely have a place, but can become slippery and do require a lot of maintenance, steel ramps are a great option and require a minimal amount of maintenance, painting every few years, while aluminum ramps have a lifetime warranty and are maintenance free, the choice is yours.
Light Ramps/ Potable Ramps come in a variety of lengths and are lightweight and portable for those on the go they can be temporary or semi- permanent.
Threshold Ramps because maybe you just need help with that 1st step? Threshold Ramps come in rubber and aluminum and provide the smooth and safe transition you need at raised landings, doorways, and low inclines.
Wood Ramps require constant maintenance and last only a few years, wood can also be very slippery from rain, snow, or ice, and rot from exposure.
Aluminum Ramps don’t rust, have no required maintenance, and come with a lifetime warranty.
Concrete Ramps will last for years to come, concrete also requires no maintenance and can be finished with a non slip texture.

The term "handicap" can be offensive and is not appropriate language when referring to someone with disabilities. We apologize if we have offended anyone, that's not our intent. We use the term only to reference certain aspects of accessible construction (for the benefit of our uninformed viewers). We know that a person using a wheelchair would be much less "handicapped" in a building and surroundings that are wheelchair accessible, the extent of the handicap to an individual relates directly to accessibility!
