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.

The Benefits of a Residential Elevator System

Residential Elevator System

Adding an elevator system during construction of a new home can be very beneficial.

When you think of ways to improve your home in 2019, a residential elevator system may not be your first thought, but it is an excellent way to make your home better. Adding an elevator will add a level of freedom and value to your home that you or future residents will significantly appreciate for a variety of reasons. While it is possible to have an elevator added to a home after initial contruction, it is much easier to add one to the design of a custom home. If you have the chance to build a home, adding an elevator at that time will allow for more fluid design and more cost-effective installation.


One of the primary benefits of an elevator system is the convenience it brings. Hefting loads of laundry, groceries, and equipment up and down stairs can be time-consuming and can possibly lead to injury. If you’ve ever pulled a muscle or injured your back while lugging heavy objects up stairs, you’ll realize just how useful an elevator can be.


Whether you are looking to age in place or if you simply want to make your home more inviting to those with decreased mobility, an elevator helps to let anyone who enters your home have greater accessibility to all areas. This is a particularly useful feature if you have aging relatives who may have trouble navigating stairs. It also means that as you and your family age, you are able to stay in your own home longer, something most homeowners will want to do.

Increased Home Value

Thanks to their ability to make a home more accessible, many buyers will prioritize a house with an elevator. Elevators are becoming more common in new homes, and buyers often see them as a huge advantage. This means that they usually add to both the monetary and conceptual value of a house and can help you maintain value over time.
