Wheelchair Ramps in St. Louis
“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.

Wheelchair Ramp Basics
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.
