How are homelifts installed?

If you find it tricky to manoeuvre around your home without the use of aids or without feeling unsafe, then getting a home lift installation could be one of the best options for your space. Homelifts offer you freedom and safety within your home, allowing you to travel securely between multiple levels without having to take the stairs.

Residential lifts are perfect for those who want minimal fuss and building work done to their homes. Differently to stairlifts, homelift won’t mean that you need any mechanisms on the staircase for other occupants to contend with who don’t need the assistance, great for those who are living in a home with a range of mobility levels.

Home elevator installation by Age Co is simple and non-intrusive so you won’t lose your home whilst the lift is being installed. Find some answers to frequently asked questions about the process of lift installation in an existing building below.
