by | Jan 25, 2023 | Elevators, Lifts

Are you considering installing a home elevator, but you’re worried about the cost of installation? While there are factors that can heavily impact the cost of home elevator installation, not all home elevators require them. Read on to learn more about the expenses behind installing a home elevator and how to avoid them in your next purchase.

Avoid The Cost of Renovation

As we all know, the cost of renovating a home can get quite expensive, especially if you’re installing an elevator after your home is already built. Some elevator companies will require heavy construction before installing your home elevator because their residential elevators require a lot of space. Many companies might even go so far as to tear down walls and excavate the ground to accommodate your home elevator.

At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we have meticulously engineered all our residential elevators to require minimal renovation to make the product’s installation as seamless as possible. All our home elevators have the following key features to offer customers an easy and affordable installation process:

Smart Space Design

We understand the hassle and challenges a homeowner faces when completely renovating their home. Not only is the process expensive, but it is also time-consuming. For that reason, we have designed our home elevators to fit easily in your home with minimal disruption during the installation. Instead of spending time and money on making space in your home, we have designed residential elevators that can be installed in almost any area of your home. With RAM Elevators + Lifts shaftless home elevators, we can install your residential elevator into any floor plan with minimal construction expenses.

Machine-Room Less (MRL) Design

While many elevators need a separate room for essential machinery within the household, RAM Elevators + Lifts offers customers home elevators with a Machine-Room Less (MRL) design. You will no longer have to create or sacrifice space in your home to accommodate an essential mobility solution, as all our products are compact and self-contained. Our home elevators are designed to operate smoothly without a machine room as all the required machinery is mounted directly to the top of the elevator. You can now install a home elevator that can easily fit into a standard 96” top-floor ceiling height, eliminating the need to spend money or time on building a machine room.

Limited Pit / Pitless Design

Unlike many elevators that require heavy excavation to accommodate a home elevator, RAM Elevators + Lifts have designed a pitless elevator that requires no expensive excavation. With our StratusCrystal or Trus-T-Lift, you can choose a pitless build with a 2” ramp for existing spaces or, if you prefer, a 2” pit for flush access. The cost of excavation is completely eliminated when installing any of our home elevators.
