Wood Wheelchair Ramps DIY Design

  1. Wood wheelchair ramps are designed to use pre-cut lumber and bolts purchased from a Home Center store. In most cases, even ramps that are exposed to the elements do not need “treated” wood.  Untreated wood will last outdoors for 10-15 years. Call us if you are considering using treated wood for your residential ramp, even for outdoor use. Non-slip surface treatments are covered in the construction info that is included with each DIY ramp kit order.
