It’s exciting to make the purchase and have a residential elevator installed in your Metro Washington DC area, Silver Spring, Fairfax, Montgomery, or Howard County home. But such a big change comes with a lot of considerations. Here is a list of what factors to consider when getting a residential elevator.
One of the first things you should check is the type of warranty for your home elevator. It’s unlikely that you will need major repairs, but it’s better to be informed just in case. Look for the length of your warranty and whether it can be transferred or renewed. Likewise, you should make sure that your elevator was properly inspected; both the parts before they were installed as well as the working mechanism. Having an inspection will prevent any repair issues surprising you later.
Many people who install a home elevator might think of how it affects the home value. But it is also important to consider how adding an elevator will change your home insurance. Will your elevator be covered, or will you need to add to your policy? In some cases, you might have to update the insurance coverage for your entire house if a residential elevator has significantly increased your home value.
Most importantly, working with a high-quality residential elevator service company will ensure that you won’t have any future problems. If you are having a new elevator installed, then you will already have this information. But if you move into a home with a home elevator already installed, then you should ask the previous homeowner who the service company is. Either way, make sure that you have a company that provides quality you can trust.
