What You Should Know Prior to Having Your Handicap Ramp Installed

Before you start the process of having a handicap ramp installed for your Shelby Township home, there are a few important components to consider. It’s important that before you have your handicap ramp installed to have a good understanding of Shelby Township bylaws. The most effective way to do this is to check with the Shelby Township building department before construction begins to ensure the proper permits are obtained.

It’s also important to ensure that your new handicap ramp stays within the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) guidelines. The ADA requires that all handicap ramps have a 1:12 ramp slope ratio. The ADA also requires that all handicap ramps have a minimum of a 5×5 flat unobstructed area both at the top and bottom of all ramps.

The Benefits of a Concrete Handicap Ramp

When deciding which type of handicap ramp to have installed for your Shelby Township home consider the benefits of concrete handicap ramps. Concrete is a low cost and durable option for your handicap ramp. This durable material is low maintenance and won’t require the other time-consuming repairs or replacements that other materials would need. Investing in a concrete handicap ramp also gives you the freedom to have your handicap ramp custom designed to fit your families needs. Preformed ramps can have issues fitting snugly with your home and may cause problems down the line.

It can be tempting to install your own concrete handicap ramp in order to cut construction costs.
