Get an estimate
The most common question we get is how much a ramp is going to cost. And we get it—this is an essential piece of information for you to know.
We will always do our best to answer this question as quickly and accurately as we can. However, it’s important to know that the more information you can provide our team, the more accurate we can estimate your project.
There are a few pieces of information that we’ll always need before providing an estimate.
We will use your address to determine if you’re in our service area or if we should refer you to a dealer in your area. If you are in our service area, we can calculate mileage to determine the installation fee.
Of course, your zip code will do. However, by providing your home address, we can usually view your home on Google Maps to better assess your property and provide a much more accurate estimate.
Because safety is our number one priority, we install all of our ramps according to ADA guidelines. These guidelines require a minimum of 12-inches of length for every 1-inch of height. This means that a ramp that needs to rise 24 inches from the ground to the bottom of the door threshold (or top of the porch) will need to be roughly 24-feet long.
Determine the ramp’s rise by using a tape measure to measure the distance from the ground to the top of the steps where the ramp will go. The measurement doesn’t have to be exact at this time, but the closer you can get, the more accurate the estimate will be.
If unavailable, we can estimate the rise using the number of existing stairs where the ramp will be going.
Finally, we need to know if there is a porch or deck at the top of the ramp. This allows us to determine if a landing platform is necessary or not. A landing platform is needed because a ramp cannot ascend directly into a doorway. The wheelchair requires an area to come to rest after climbing or before descending the ramp.
Other helpful information
Essentially, the more information you can give us upfront, the more accurate of an estimate we’ll be able to provide. Additional information to include might be pictures of the property, any special needs, or if you would like to have steps or a gate included on the ramp.
