If you are a business, state or federal building, commercial handicap ramp repair will be needed.
With the passage of the ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act, in 1990 very specific guidelines were created to remove restrictions for entry into a business or government facility by someone with a disability. Since then commercial property owners have been required by law to create safe, accessible entrances to their buildings. This includes asphalt and concrete handicap ramps, metal handicap ramps and wooden ramps. Business, State or Federal building alike, commercial handicap ramp repair will be needed.
Some of the most common reasons for handicap ramps to need repair are:
- Water Accumulation. When water builds up on the ramp, it causes damage that has to be addressed. This includes, but may not be limited to: wood rot, rust and/or corrosion.
- Bent Aluminum. If the ramp is made out of metal, usually aluminum, the material often needs to be replaced if it becomes bent.
- Damaged Railings. The railings are an important part of a handicap ramp that assists people safely get up and down. If the railing becomes damaged, it needs to be replaced or repaired immediately.
- Worn Grit Strips. The grit strips prevent slipping when moving up or down the ramp. Over time, these grit strips can become worn out
