Things you need to know

Installing an elevator at your home has become quite common. More and more people are getting elevators installed at their homes as they understand that it is a need rather than a status symbol. If you wish to get an elevator installed at your place, you must know about a certain things before initiating the process.

1.    Generally, a medium sized lift is of the size of a walk-in closet. It is neither too big nor too small. The cabin is more or less 12-16 square feet and it has six inches of space in between the external wall and itself. The machine room requires similar amount of space and it can either be placed at the basement or on the first floor. Thus, you must have enough space in your house before thinking of installing a lift there.

2.    The charges for installing a basic lift at a 2-3 story house can be in the range of $18,000 to $34,000. If it involves a bit of construction or remodelling, it adds a few hundred dollars more. Regular maintenance of lifts is necessary and such maintenance and service checks call for added expenses. So, you must be prepared for such expenses before installing a lift at your place.
