Hi all, First post in a long while and a bit off topic, but the opinions
here are usually very informative, so is the Question:
I need to have a small deck or patio (10x10) and handicap ramp (14x4) built
for a wheelchair bound relative.
One contractor has a proposal for the above in Trex with stainless screw
fasteners, 42" footers and railing on each side of ramp
Another contractor proposes a paver ramp and patio (compacted earth, stone,
stone and sand) same dimensions but no railings. He would use 16" anchors on
edge to stabilize the pavers.
Western NYS for environment, and, the paver price is $4000. less than the
So, with the addition of railings on the paver bid, which would be less in
routine maintenance and more durable?
Thanks in Advance for any insights, Tom
