Wheelchair Ramps in St. Louis

Promise Home Works installs wheelchair ramps – also known as modular ramps – throughout the greater St. Louis area. Wheelchair ramps offer customers convenience and safety when entering and exiting their homes, eliminating the necessity of climbing stairs. Our ramps are predominantly aluminum, but we also install wooden ramps, composite ramps, and black steel ramps – depending on our customer’s preference.

“How do I get in my home with stairs?”, is a question we hear quite often. Until a medical event or injury occurs, we seldom even notice the number of steps into our homes. But these steps are the biggest obstacles in staying safely in your own home – and – it’s the primary way to assess the necessary length of your particular ramp.

Many homes in St Louis set up three to five feet off the ground. Particularly, within the City of St Louis, you see a great deal of homes with concrete steps that lead up to a porch. This is a typical city home, with a big front porch – which is nice to sit and relax – but difficult to access because of all the steps! In these situations we may need a very long ramp, or look for an alternative entrance/exit from the home.

Benefits of Wheelchair Ramps

Wheelchair ramps allow customers to access their home at a gentle enough slope; almost as if you’re walking on a sidewalk with a slight incline. Wheelchair ramps help to:
  • Fall prevention
  • Stability when stepping into the tub or shower
  • Stability when walking through an area with a tripping hazard, a threshold, a short step, an entranceway, etc.
  • Make people feel safe and comfortable when getting in and out of their homes
  • Allow people to remain living in their homes
  • Provide caregivers with an easy and less stressful way of helping people to get in and out of their homes
  • Provide home access for those who use wheelchairs, electric chairs, walkers or canes or who just have issues with mobility when it comes to stepping up and down their external stairs or steep inclines

Wheelchair Ramp Basics

Aluminum wheelchair ramps are built to be free-standing. This means that we don’t have to attach them to your home, drill into the sidewalk, or mount to anything. They are completely independent of any other structure and can be removed very easily and without damage to property.

Steel ramps – very much like the aluminum – are free standing.

Wooden ramps can be structured exactly like the aluminum – or – they can be built like you would a deck; with treated wood or composite. If a customer prefers a wood deck ramp, we pull all the necessary permits and do all the necessary drawing. Typically, a “modular ramp” requires no permits.

Cement ramps are very similar to pouring a sidewalk. In most cases, this would be for commercial use, but every customer has different requirements.

Portable, folding ramps that you take with you on-the-go, can be ordered in various lengths and configurations. We are a dealer for several portable ramp manufacturers.

We have an aluminum ramp rental program for those customers only needing a ramp for as little as three months.

What other home modifications are typically installed with a wheelchair ramp?

Our normal ramp installation in St Louis can include the installation of grab bars, the widening of doors, a stairlift, and another area where we do a great deal of work; remodeling the bathroom for safety and handicapped accessibility. We typically remove the tub and create a curbless, roll-in, barrier free, tub-to-shower conversion. Stepping over the tub is the greatest fall risk in the home, and this is an area which always need reviewed by our Certified Environmental Accessibility Consultants – (CEAC)
