A home elevator installation is a great investment for a number of reasons, most notably age-in-place remodeling. As a Shoreline homeowner, you likely have a number of questions regarding installation. Here are the inquiries we receive often from residences contemplating an installation.
Where Will the Elevator Go?
Where can you accommodate the elevator in your home? Often, the elevator is installed adjacent to the staircase. Another popular option is between the kitchen and bedroom. Some elevator models can also be installed outdoors.
Is My Home Large Enough to Accommodate an Elevator?
People wonder whether they have the space for a home elevator. Some elevator models require just enough space equivalent to the size of a small wardrobe. If you want to consume as little space as possible, consider a stairlift. Our partner AmeriGlide provides stairlifts for various staircase types.
How Long Does the Installation Take?
Installation time varies greatly depending on elevator style, size, and number of floors it’s traveling through. For most home elevators, the installation time is between two and six days. Selecting a pre-made cabin may also expedite the process. If you opt for customized wall panels or flooring, expect a few extra days.
Do I Need a Permit?
In most cases, a permit isn’t required for indoor elevators for private use. However, you should double check with your local municipality. You may require a permit if your residence is a part of a homeowner’s association. A permit may also be needed for an outdoor elevator.
