No problem unless you’re short on space in the garage………How big a garage do you have and how many steps do you need to rise…….. does the access door open out into the garage or into the house? TELL us more about the site……..

The steepest ramp allowed in a residential setting would be 1:8……1:12 or greater is safer and more comfortable………you also need a flat landing at the top and bottom………and maybe handrails(?)…………

For the(long)technical ADA guidelines……the link opens to ramps…….. try:
