What’s a Home Elevator?

A home elevator is precisely what it sounds like — an elevator installed in your home. With a home elevator, you can make your house fully accessible on every level for all members of your family, no matter their mobility restrictions.

At Signature Elevators, our residential elevator systems are designed to serve a specific purpose, tailored to the clients we serve.

When Should You Consider Residential Elevator Installation?

Wondering if home elevator installation and design is right for you? These are some reasons you might consider elevator installation for your home:

  • Aging in place: As you get older, it gets harder to move around — especially if you live in a multi-story home. Adding a home elevator can dramatically improve your mobility so you can safely and easily access all levels of the home.
  • Enhanced safety: Elevators offer a safer solution for traveling between stories than staircases, letting you have greater confidence and peace of mind as you move throughout your home.
  • Property value: Adding an elevator to your home can add tremendous value if you plan to sell within the next five years.
  • Simplified living: If you frequently move large objects from one floor to the other, it might be time to simplify the process by installing a home elevator.
  • Increased space: Compared to a staircase or ramp, home elevators don’t take up as much space, so you can enjoy increased storage space for your belongings.

If home elevator design and installation sounds like the right decision for your family, contact Signature Elevators at (301) 251-1658 to schedule a residential elevator consultation today.

Signature Elevators is proud to specialize in designing and installing many different types of home elevators, including:

Hydraulic Elevators

Offering a full hoist-way enclosure on every floor, a pit at the lowest landing, and a separate machine room, our hydraulic elevators offer the most comprehensive residential elevator systems available to DMV-area homeowners.

Pneumatic Elevators

Also referred to as vacuum elevators, pneumatic elevators use air pressure to raise and lower the cab, featuring a cylindrical design ideal for making the smallest imprint of any home elevator on the market.

Shaftless Elevators

Often referred to as “through-floor” elevators, this system is designed to service two floors and is one of the easiest home elevator systems to retrofit in existing homes, as it requires the least space.

How long does it take to install an elevator in a home?

The installation time depends on the project’s complexity, the type of elevator, and any necessary construction or customization needed. On average, the installation process can range from a few weeks to a few months. Signature Elevators & Accessible Design can provide a more accurate estimate based on your project details.

Does a home elevator add value to a house?

Yes, a home elevator can increase your home value. Installing a residential elevator enhances accessibility and convenience, making the property more attractive to potential buyers, especially those with mobility challenges or future accessibility needs.

What is a pneumatic elevator?

A pneumatic elevator operates using air pressure to lift and lower the cabin. These elevators are self-supporting and don’t require a machine room or hoistway, making them a space-saving option. Pneumatic elevators offer a sleek and modern design and can be installed in various locations within a home.

Where can an elevator be installed in a house?

Elevators can be installed in various locations, depending on the layout and design. Common installation areas include stairwells, closets, or dedicated shafts.
