Keep reading to learn how investing in a residential elevator from RAM Elevators + Lifts will increase your home’s value.

1. Age In Place + Future Planning

Life catches up with us when we least expect it, and mobility issues can happen anytime. It’s never too early to start thinking about the future and how you can prepare your home for all life phases. Residential elevators are beneficial in Vancouver homes with tight staircases and multiple floors.

Whether hauling Christmas decorations from the basement to the main floor or carrying multiple loads of laundry up and down stairs, home elevators make daily tasks easier. Here at RAM, we are proud to design, engineer, and build accessible mobility products that provide our clients peace of mind. Investing in a residential elevator lets you focus on living in the present without worrying about the future.

2. Value Add + Increased Resale Value

More and more builders are installing a residential elevator when building new homes. The property value will alwaysincrease when accessibility products are built in because accessibility is timeless. Homebuyers are looking for a house in which they can put down roots and spend the rest of their lives.

RAM’s experienced technicians are familiar with installing our residential elevators during the building process of a new home and retrofitting elevators in existing homes. Not only does installing a home elevator increase the property value, but it also increases the overall quality of life within the home!

3. Aesthetic Home Extension

RAM has led the elevator and lift industry in accessibility advancements for over thirty years. In our expert opinion, there is no reason accessibility devices cannot be beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. RAM’s residential elevators can be hidden behind a regular door, but we offer a vast selection of design choices, especially for The Crystal.

RAM has perfected the balance of utility and beauty with executive finishes like natural wood, glass panels, customizable buttons and flooring.

4. Environmentally Conscious

RAM’s incredible engineers use an advanced self-lubricating polymer that goes on all guiding surfaces. This polymer effectively removes the need for grease and ensures the ride remains smooth and silent for years.

The Stratus and the Crystal residential elevators are electrically operated, rather than the traditional hydraulic ones that require smelly oils and toxic chemicals to run. RAM’s elevators require maintenance once a year rather than the semi-annual maintenance that hydraulic elevators need. With our single-minded focus on progress, RAM elevators outperform traditional elevators in every single way, from energy efficiency to overall longevity.
