While many homeowners might be concerned about the cost of having a residential elevator installed in their home, a Stiltz Home Elevator is actually more affordable than ever and has many long-lasting benefits to suit every user’s needs.

So what are some of the signs to look out for that you need an home elevator in your home? Here at Stiltz Home Elevators, we have put together a list of the top five signs that mean its time to install a residential elevator.

1) You want to ‘future proof’ your home

If you are concerned about leaving the home where you raised your family or the idea of moving house in the future is unsettling to you, then choosing to ‘future proof’ your current home is the ideal solution. More and more people are deciding to install a Stiltz Home Elevator in their home to reassure them that if they begin to suffer with mobility issues in later life, their home is already adapted to suit their needs.

2) Illness and mobility issues

Arthritis, ageing or injury are just some of the things that have the potential to affect many Americans’ lives at some point. It can mean that people are left struggling to move around or climb the stairs in their homes, leaving many to feel disheartened and frustrated. Installing a residential elevator offers people the freedom and dignity to move around their homes at the push of a button. The Stiltz Trio Home Elevator – our wheelchair lift – can even fit a standard-sized wheelchair, so that no homeowner feels like they only have access to a small section of their home.

3) A stair lift does not suit your needs

While stair lifts have been a popular solution in the past, at Stiltz Home Elevators, our home lifts are fitted with the most up-to-date technology and safety features, making it a perfect upgrade from a stair lift. Stair lifts can only carry one person at a time, whereas a residential elevator can carry up to two or three people, or a standard-sized wheelchair and another passenger or carer. This makes it ideal if you have a large family or multiple people with mobility issues live at home with you.

4) You are looking at selling your home

A fantastic benefit of having a home elevator is that it can also add value to your property, making it a great long-term investment for you and an attractive feature for potential buyers.

Our home elevators can be installed in compact and space-saving places in your home, and they are also incredibly stylish additions, so you or potential buyers don not need to worry about losing valuable living space or style. Elevators can be particularly attractive to older buyers, but also for anyone looking to find their forever home, that is already been ‘future proofed’ for them.

5) Independence and safety

A home elevator can be a dignified way for homeowners to move about their homes with the independence that they deserve. Additionally, they help to eliminate potential accidents that may arise from trying to climb stairs.
