The ramps we install are both safe and high-quality. Our standard build process has been refined over the years as detailed in our wheelchair ramp design and construction guidelines. If you live outside of the Linn County Iowa area or don’t qualify for our service, we encourage you to use our guidelines for your own builds; we know there’s a need for economical and easily-constructed handicap ramps beyond our reach.
Before a build, our experienced designers conduct a site visit, and then design a ramp using our well-established guidelines. Though we use the same overall approach, we customize the design for each site to optimize the ramp to the location while minimizing cost. Complete the following material cost estimator form to estimate the cost of your ramp.
During each build, a designer leads a group of volunteers to construct the ramp according to the design. Volunteer labor doesn’t mean we sacrifice structural integrity or cut corners on construction. We build ramps using the guidelines established by the American Disabilities Act (ADA).
We also meet applicable municipality building codes. Worried about navigating through red tape? Don’t be! We obtain the building permit for ramp construction. We also arrange for the necessary materials, determine the construction date, keep track of day-of construction details and assure cleanup of the site after we build the ramp.
Your satisfaction with the ramp is important to us. That’s why we follow up with you 30 days after the build to make sure the ramp meets your needs. If there are any issues with the ramp, WRAP volunteers can take care of repair work. You’re not on your own.
