Home Elevator Prices

A guide to Homelift Prices

When considering installing a homelift, a significant consideration is the price. However, a residential homelift is often more affordable and involves far less building work than people expect due to the mechanisms involved. Rather than requiring a shaft and pit, an entire section to be built onto or cut out of a house and lots of noisy machinery, all a homelift needs is a bit of space, and it can be installed in almost any room in the house.

But what influences the price of a homelift?

How Much Does a Home Elevator Cost?

A home elevator costs, on average, between $25,000 and $35,000, depending on the number of floors served, the size and type of elevator, and the features desired.

What Determines the Cost of a home elevator?

Home Elevator Types

The first factors that affect the price you pay for a home elevator is the model you choose, how you personalise it and where you’re installing it in your home. To get you started with deciding on the elevator model to meet your needs, here are some questions to ask yourself that may well influence how much your home elevator will cost:

Has your home already been roughed-in for a lift hoistway? Newer homes are starting to have this as an option.

Is there a location in your home that avoids kitchens, washrooms, furnace rooms on both landing floors?

Is that location convenient for the use of mobility devices should that be a consideration ?

Is there clear access to the entrance of the home elevator in the location selected?

While there are many options to choose from when it comes to residential elevators when you buy from Cambridge Elevating, they all have certain features in common. These include safety features like emergency communication systems and pressure sensors, battery backups and, most importantly, mechanical brakes that latch onto each rail, hooking into the rail system and stopping the lift in its tracks when activated, as well as a complementary 12-month product warranty and first annual maintenance check.

Building Work

There may be more work to do in order to ensure that the structural modifications are carried out correctly. From a design standpoint, there’s always a chance of removing walls or partitions. The Homelift is available in two sizes and incorporates several additional features that might be useful in your situation. While these elements will all be discussed with you at your in-house consultation, you may already begin thinking about locations, requirements, and preferences so that you know what’s coming up and can discuss your choices with our expert.

Does the price of a residential elevator include installation?

Yes. Our price proposal includes both the elevator and installation. We also coordinate the construction work carried out if you use our recommended contractor to ensure the aperture is complete to specifications, and in conformity to building codes
