This information will only go to VGM Live at Home and just one person will contact you back to get you connected with the right contractor for your needs. You will not get a bunch of calls from a ton of different service providers.

Why we know this works

Finding a good contractor can be really hard. And finding one that has some experience with specialized accommodations due to health is even more tricky. We personally struggled with keeping a good running list in our heads for people we trusted to refer to our patients and that's just for the cities we live in!

So we are so excited to be able to have this great resource available because every service provider in the VGM Live at Home network is a Master Certified Environmental Access Consultant and can do everything from building a custom ramp to replacing a tub with a shower, add a stair lift or even put in an elevator!

Important to note:

ADA recommends for every 1 inch of rise the ramp should be 1 foot long. So a 14 inch rise from the ground to the doorway would need a 14 foot long ramp. ADA guidelines are not a requirement in private homes so here is a helpful guide to decide how long a ramp to get.

1ft:1 in Ramp length ratio for anyone going up the ramp independently, walking or in a manual wheelchair

1ft:1.5in Ramp length ratio for anyone going up the ramp with some help in a walker, manual or power wheelchair

1ft:2in Ramp length ratio not recommended. Choose this length ONLY if necessary and a very capable helper will be pushing the wheelchair every time.
