The Different Types of Wheelchair Ramp

The Different Types of Wheelchair Ramp

Just like any general construction project, you need to have a better understanding of which is the best option for your current situation.

At Mobility Construction, we specialize in custom wheelchair ramp installation. Read on below as we walk you through the pros and cons of each wheelchair ramp.

  • Wood wheelchair ramps

    This is the most popular and affordable wheelchair ramp installation in Freehold, New Jersey. Contractors can make a wooden wheelchair ramp from various types of wood, so you won’t have an issue finding a wood grain that’s on budget. However, wood wheelchair ramps require a lot of maintenance. They also get very slippery after heavy rain.

  • Aluminum wheelchair ramps

    Aluminum ramps are for people who prefer a hardy, portable wheelchair ramp. You can buy lightweight aluminum and put them together on your own. But just like wood ramps, you need a textured finished to prevent slips after heavy rain.

  • Steel wheelchair ramps

    Steel cost less than an aluminum wheelchair ramp. It can also hold heavier weight than aluminum ramps. On the downside, steel is less flexible, so you’ll need to hire a professional contractor.
