Wheelchair Ramp Installation in Venice, FL
Wheelchair ramps allow those using wheelchairs and walkers to reach elevations that would normally require steps, such as a porch or deck. They are also used by individuals who have trouble traversing typical steps. Ramps can be built from many different materials including wood, steel, aluminum and composite materials. They can be permanent, semi-permanent or portable.
Permanent and semi-permanent ramps are typically made of aluminum, concreate, or wood. These ramps can be designed to match the current look and color of your existing porch/deck to make for a more cohesive look.
Portable ramps (also called modular ramps) are made of aluminum and can fold up for ease of transportation. These ramps can often be rented for extended length of time and are great for temporary use.
Ramps must be carefully designed in order to be useful, fit into the available space and to make sure they meet the appropriate requirements. The ADA standard for a ramp is 12 inches of length per every inch of elevation, commonly referred to as the 12:1 ratio.

"Help!! My roof is leaking and dripping into my dining room!!!! I called several guys I know that have done some repairs for me in the past and was told I needed a new roof. They suggested I cover the roof with a blue tarp until I could get a new roof installed. Finally, I called Tom. He was there within two hours, made emergency repairs in drizzling rain, stopped the leak and came back later that week and made permanent repairs. Also told me I do not need a new roof now. Tom, I want to thank you and your company for the quick response and professional service work you provided to me. Excellent craftsmanship and wonderful clean-up. Bravo!" - Jane D.
