Perhaps you’re considering a stairlift installation for your Lynnwood residence. This is a terrific investment as part of an age-in-place remodeling or to accommodate an occupant with a mobility issue. Naturally, there are going to be questions regarding the installation, cost, etc. Here are the stairlift FAQs we often get from homeowners.
How Long Does a Stairlift Installation Take?
Installation is quick and efficient. In most instances, the stairlift can be installed and ready for use in a single appointment. The process takes an average of four to five hours. This includes post-installation work like the cleanup and demonstration.
Can My Stairs Support a Stairlift?
Stairlifts, courtesy of our suppliers Savaria, Matot, and AmeriGlide, among others can accommodate most staircase types. This includes spiral staircases and stairs with a landing in the middle. Installation always begins with an initial in-person assessment to ensure staircase compatibility.
Will a Stairlift Damage My Staircase?
Installation includes a track supported by brackets. This unit is affixed to the staircase using screwed-on treads. The manner of the installation prevents damage or contact with the stair entryway and banister.
Will a Stairlift Damage My Floor?
There are concerns that a stairlift may cause damage or denting to the floor. The stairlift chair is supported by brackets and keeps the unit above the floor, so there is no contact with the carpet or tiles. There are, however, support screws that must be screwed to the floor and will leave small holes if the lift is removed.
