A retired carpenter called us recently about wooden railings for the wheelchair ramp he was adding on to his front porch. His wife had become wheelchair bound after a mild stroke and, because of his experience, he intended to build the ramp himself. He wanted wooden railings that would match the existing look of his home. He admitted to us that even though he had spent his life working with wood, he was no woodworker. He hoped we could supply wooden railings that would look good and fit his needs, and we were happy to help.
Wooden Railings for Safety and Peace of Mind
Our new friend’s design for the wheelchair ramp would run from the side of their porch, along the exterior of the house, to the edge of their driveway, with only one side of the ramp exposed. That meant he only needed wooden railings on one side. His main concern was making sure his wife’s wheelchair couldn’t slip off the edge of the ramp, so he wanted us to keep that in mind. We showed him a variety of styles and materials that would suit his needs, and he found exactly what he was looking for.
When it comes to taking care of our loved ones, none of us would ever cut corners. The safety of this man’s wife was just as important to us as one of our own family members would be. The straightforward design simplified everything for him, and us. Making sure he got the right railings to keep his wife safe was our number one concern.
