Nearly one-third of schools across the country are equipped with ramps to help students access portable classrooms. In every school district, there never seems to be enough money in the budget, so finding cost-effective solutions to accessibility issues is imperative. When you look at the costs for installing a wood ramp versus an aluminum ramp, the wood ramp is cheaper up front. So that's the correct choice for students, right?


While cheaper to install, wood ramps are more expensive to maintain, and often require replacement sooner. More importantly, aluminum ramps are safer for students. Wood ramps are impacted by the weather, causing them to rot and warp, making the ramps dangerous for students.
