Stylish modular ramps improve access, safety

The Gatehouse Custom Access Ramp is a decorative system that helps maintain the curb appeal of a home while improving access for wheelchairs or those with limited mobility.

This do-it-yourself modular aluminum system can be customized, as with a stick-built wood ramp, to fit the design and style of a variety of homes. Components are available for a straight walkway or designs with right, left or U-turn sections. Choose your preference for decking, railings and accessories.

A temporary ramp can be installed if the home is expected to be sold soon. Components are priced separately. The price for a basic 14-foot ramp at Lowe’s can range from about $1,500 to $2,500 (roughly $1,300 for the substructure), depending on materials. www.lowes.com/ramps. Karen Sullivan
