COVID-19 Notice

Preferred Elevator would like to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to do our part in flattening the curve of COVID-19. We have developed a “No Family Contact” process for service, repairs and installations. Our Mechanic, who will be wearing a mask and gloves, will call you when we are at your front door and will discuss the issues or concerns you have with your unit. Our customer can then unlock the door, but there is no need to further greet the Mechanic or be present for the service, repair or installation. Please feel free to move to another part of the home while we are working. Final payment can be left for technician or can be done over the phone with our office.
We greatly appreciate your business during this time.

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.

Residential Elevator Considerations, Put Simply

Residential Elevator Considerations Preferred Elevator

If you’ve decided that a residential elevator is right for you or your family, call us

Today we will sum up residential elevator considerations in three straightforward steps. If you have looked into getting a residential elevator, you understand just how much they make lives more comfortable. Freedom, convenience, and less strain on the body are among many of residential elevators’ associated benefits. If you’ve decided that a residential elevator is right for you or your family, you may be wondering what the next step is. The next step is, of course, to call Preferred Elevator, but in the meantime, here are three easy-to-understand considerations. 

Assess Your Available Space

Ask yourself if you have enough space in your home for a residential elevator. Our home elevators aren’t bulky, but some houses don’t have much square footage, even with that being the case. We suggest that you consider how much available space there is when looking at the details of the elevator model you’d prefer. Of course, our team can make this assessment for you, but it doesn’t hurt to think about this beforehand. 

Assess Your Style Preferences

Residential elevators serve a functional purpose, but aesthetics come into play as well. It’s more than possible to own an elegant or lavish home elevator. We recommend that you think about the style of your home. Ask yourself if your home is traditional or modern. For example, glass cab elevators are trendy and work well with modern homes. Wood veneer works well with rustic homes. Elevators have many cab styles and finishes that can benefit any homeowner. 

Consider Elevator Service and Maintenance for Your Residential Elevator

Home elevators are very safe, as they are equipped with safety features that give homeowners peace of mind. Plus, safety compliance codes ensure that residential elevators are as safe as possible. Still, elevator maintenance ensures that all parts of an elevator run as it should and diagnose any mechanical problems. Consider elevator maintenance and service like a routine checkup that saves you money in costly repairs. Our licensed, insured, and bonded mechanics offer the best annual services. 

Consider a Residential Elevator If: 

  • You’d like to age in place
  • You’re experiencing difficulty traveling up and down the stairs
  • You care about a loved one’s declining mobility
  • You’re a home investor looking to sell a home in an elderly community and enhance marketability and home value
