Residential Elevator Installation

  • Affordability - Most people when they think about residential elevators think, too decadent, out of reach or that only a millionaire could have one. In reality, a home elevator is right in line with the cost of new kitchen cabinets.
  • Resalability - The more accessible the home, the more interesting it will be to a wider variety of possible buyers. Accessibility is a memorable and desirable feature that will separate and elevate your home from the others.
  • Convenience - Multi-level homes are becoming even more popular as they offer additional square footage without losing acreage. However the idea of moving laundry, groceries, luggage, or even yourself up and down stairs day after day, often make you

    re-think your dream home plans. We think that you should have that home of your dreams by adding a Residential Elevator.

  • Elegance - These elevators are custom built to your specifications, which will allow you to express your home's unique character and your personal style. Invest in a Residential Elevator to take you to any level of your home with elegance and ease.

Vuelift by Savaria

With its small footprint and integrated hoistway, it’s an easy addition to design plans for new builds, and remarkably flexible for retrofitting into an existing home. The Vuelift Mini’s sleek circular design lets you live outside the box.

Thanks to its integrated hoistway, the Vuelift Mini fits against a wall, in a corner, in the middle of an open-concept living space or centered in a winding or circular staircase. This through the floor lifts takes up 7 to 10 square feet less room than a traditional residential elevator using only a 50-inch diameter footprint.

Through the floor elevator by Stiltz

Using dual rail technology, the freestanding Stiltz Duo Home Elevator is a self-supporting structure with no extra weight burden put on the home. This means the lift can be installed in places where other conventional residential elevators will not fit. The clever design also means there is no need for a lift shaft or separate machine room.

These elevators are sometimes called through the floor elevator, hydraulic home elevator, shaftless elevator, vacuum elevator.

Custom Elevator Manufacturing Company

Residential elevators by Custom Elevator Company are furnished with two 3/8″ diameter hoist ropes and an instantaneous car safety that is activated by slackening in any single hoist rope.

A vibration-free submersible hydraulic power unit is located in a room or space outside of the elevator hoist-way where it is simple and safe to access and eliminates the disturbance from any machine noise within the elevator car as found with other designs.
