Thread: Proper ramp height ?

    Proper ramp height ?

    I recently bought a house, but I have to build a ramp inorder to get inside. Does anybody have some insight on how to properly build a ramp. I've heard somewhere that for every inch from the ground up to the doorway the ramp needs to be one foot long. I think I will need to go at a 90 degee angle (because I'm building it in the garage) so we can fit both cars in. Any thoughts??

    Correct.

    The ramps that have been made or built for my home are for every 1 in in height, a length of 1 ft. is required.
    This formula has really made the ramps easily traversable.

    For going into the house from the garage, I have a rectangular piece of wood about 34"x36" that has a ramp attached that follows the wall. The piece is 3" high. The actual ramp is 36".
    Works great.
