This tool helps you estimate the total cost of building a wheelchair ramp for your property.

## Wheelchair Ramp Cost Calculator

This calculator helps you estimate the total cost of building a wheelchair ramp based on the ramp’s size, material costs, and labor costs.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the length of the ramp in feet.
- Enter the width of the ramp in feet.
- Enter the material cost per square foot in dollars.
- Enter the labor cost per hour in dollars.
- Enter the number of labor hours required.
- Click the ‘Calculate’ button to see the total cost.

### Calculation Breakdown

The calculator computes the total cost by first determining the area of the ramp in square feet (length * width). It then calculates the total material cost by multiplying the area by the cost per square foot. The labor cost is computed by multiplying the labor rate per hour by the number of hours required. Finally, the total cost is the sum of the material and labor costs.

### Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate based on the input values. Actual costs may vary depending on factors such as discounts on bulk material purchases, varying labor rates, and unanticipated construction challenges. Always consult with a professional for a more precise estimate.
