Why Your Residential Ramp Should Be Aluminum

Featured image for blog article: Why Your Residential Ramp Should Be Aluminum

The most common materials for residential ramps are wood and aluminum. While a wood ramp may match a pre-existing patio or siding, we’re confident that an aluminum ramp is the best solution for any home.

Here are a few reasons why:


  1.

    Corrosion Resistance

    Aluminum is a naturally corrosion-resistant material, which protects a ramp from the elements. Whether your city endures multiple snowstorms a year or suffers from frequent flooding, the access solution won’t rust or corrode. This is going to save you money on repairs and upkeep as well as give you peace of mind knowing that the ramp isn’t easily damaged and will last you a lifetime.

    Safety

    The surface on an aluminum ramp will not wear down but will continue offering slip-resistance to help maintain traction when moving up and down the ramp for years to come. This is unlike wood ramps that have to have grip tape or other materials applied to the walking surface to create a non-slip pathway. This oftentimes wears out, peels up, and has to be replaced throughout the life of the ramp.

    Another great safety feature of an aluminum ramp is the smooth, continuous handrails that help guide the ramp user. These handrails are much different than the ones made of wood that could easily cause painful splinters.

    Easy to Clean

    Many outdoor structures need multiple solutions and methods to keep them clean. From chemicals to pressure washing, there often is not a simple solution to maintaining that brand new look. Aluminum, however, is simple to clean. With a mix of water and regular dish soap, you can keep your ramp system looking new year-round.

An aluminum ramp can be configured to fit any home entrance, whether you need it to go over a set of stairs or meet at the top of a porch.
