Choosing Between Aluminum or Wooden Wheelchair Ramps


When installing a wheelchair ramp in New Jersey, you can use many materials to construct ramp systems, but the most common ones are wood and aluminum.

We at Mobility Construction gathered data on both types of ramps to help you make a well-informed choice on what to pick for your ramp.

Compared to wood ramps, you can easily dismantle aluminum ramps and typically include a modular design, making it easy to make adjustments or add new features after installation.

Moreover, installing an aluminum ramp is typically less expensive and simpler to build than its wooden counterparts. Low-maintenance and often equipped with traction surfaces, aluminum ramps are a practical choice.

They are also more dent-prone, and their silver metallic appearance doesn’t subtly complement their surroundings.

However, while hiring a professional for wooden ramp installation can be expensive when you don’t know any carpenters, it can be a terrific low-cost solution.

Of course, it’s essential first to get advice and figure out the specifics, like the regulations of your area, before starting the General Construction process. Regardless of which material you choose, a good wheelchair ramp system will make it easy for you to enter and exit your building.
