Residential Elevators
 
 
 Residential elevators basically operate like a commercial elevator. The main difference is the operation of gates and doors. Gates are woodfold type and are manually operated. Hoistway doors are provided by the homeowner or contractor and normally match the home interior. Both gates and doors can be upgraded to automatic operation for additional cost. Operation of the elevator is automatic, meaning you don't have to hold any buttons while riding.
  Elevators come with different types of drive systems, hydraulic and chain drive. Hydraulic elevators are a good option if you have a place for the pump unit at the lowest level of your home, preferably in the basement sitting on concrete. If thats not the case then a chain drive system may be the best option. Both offer smooth and quiet operation. We'll help you decide which fits your particular situation.
  Installing an elevator in your home will add value to it and may help in the resale of your home. Call us today and we'll help fill in all the blanks.
