Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

What To Look For When Choosing A Residential Elevator

Residential Elevator

Take your time when choosing the perfect residential elevator for your whole family.

Whether you want to decrease the travel time around your home or you have a handicapped or elderly family member, a residential elevator is a great addition to any property.  An essential mode of transportation for any person with a mobility issue, residential elevators make life easier and increase independence.  When it is time to choose an elevator for your home, it can seem like a stressful, time-consuming process but it doesn’t have to be.  There are a few factors to look out for when choosing the perfect residential elevator for your family.  

Size and Space

Before even looking at residential elevator models, it is important to know how much space you have to work with.  How big is your home?  How many floors will your elevator travel?  Once you answer these questions, then you can move on to looking at elevators.  Obviously, the more space you have in your home, the more options of elevators you have to choose from.  Whether you can fit a small, compact elevator in your home or you have the room for a larger unit, once you figure out what you can fit in your space, you can move on to more specific details.  

Style And Design

Every elevator is manufactured to get you to various places in your home, but shouldn’t it blend in seamlessly with the other features in your home?  Whether you designed your home in a classic or modern style, your residential elevator should reflect that style as well.  Designing the interior of your elevator can be as simple or as intricate as you would like.  The professionals at Preferred Elevator can help you with the design process.  


When deciding on the perfect elevator for your home, it is essential to know how much maintenance a specific model requires.  When you purchase an elevator from Preferred Elevator, a final inspection is included in the price, and we offer Service Agreements for future inspections, service and maintenance. At Preferred Elevator, we offer 24/7 emergency service for a variety of circumstances, so your elevator will never be down for long.
