Aluminum Wheelchair ramps vs Wood Ramps
We get a lot of questions about ramps. The main one is why should we choose aluminum and not do a wooden ramp? Below we have a reasons why. Please note that we offer free home assessments in the Nashville TN area.
Aluminum Ramps Wood Ramps
|Will not Rust or Rot||Decays, Rots|
|Can be installed in 1-2 hours||Take several days (after getting a permit)|
|Has resale value if no longer needed||Must be taken down ( no value)|
|Easy to move or expand or adjust||Must be torn down and rebuilt|
|Basically no maintenance||Must be maintained (resealed)|
|Usually no building permit required (modular)||Requires building permit|
|No concrete required||Concrete required (posts)|
|Very durable (lifetime guarantee)||Wood eventually warps and causes issues|
Out of everything we mentioned I think the fact that the aluminum ramp has resale value after its use is HUGE! Knowing that you can get some value out of a purchase you made is a big deal for most people.
I have also attached a link from EZ Access that goes into further detail on aluminum vs. wood ramps. Enjoy.
