Ramps are typically built in order to improve home accessibility for people who can't use stairs or need a gentler, less stressful way to enter or leave their home. A successful home accessibility project requires careful planning in order to be certain that the ramp meets the home occupant's needs, complies with local building requirements, is safe and sturdy, and is safe for use in all types of weather.
Wood ramps are the most popular form of ramp. They can be made from common materials found in any good home improvement store.
