Here's the link. Got no idea on height and adjustability.

264killer, I live in Tuttle also so can't just "step up and go get it" any more than you could. I am offering up my time to help build or pick one up and help install.
Jeez, $500. If you guys can make that work, i can buy it and take it apart and deliver it.

Just how do you make it work with breeves existing deck?

ADA is "The Americans with Disabilities Act" of 1990.

Yes but I thought the 1:12 was for commercial applications. Home ramps can be 2:12 depending on the way it’s meant to be used.

Read that a few places.

Good to know. :thumb:

So for 38" height, the ramp only needs to be 19ft long?

That aluminum ramp is an awesome price

Shouldn't be much to tie existing porch to it.

I'm on the opposite corner, not sure how much help I would be, dragging and O2 bottle.

All the hand rails bolt at the bottom so you need to take them off. The ramps all bolt together and you can change them around to fit the need. Only thing is in the middle pic at the bottom of the ramp is a small section that has to be at the bottom. Everything else can be shifted around of I remember correctly. And the ramps are aluminum so not as heavy as it looks.

Yep, I am in the same boat. I wish I could afford to buy it for him as I think it can be adjusted to his needs easily.

Just looking at the pics:

Like mouthpiece said, start at front left and run the ramps. No need for the deck turnaround. UNLESS removing the existing porch. Replace with aluminum deck and add ramps as first suggested.

If I remember correctly, the ADA recommendation is a little over 1" per foot of incline, so that means your ramp would be about 35' long to end up with a 38" height.
