Elevator maintenance, elevator installation, and elevator service

There are many reasons a homeowner chooses to install a residential elevator in an existing home, or why they’d want to build a new one with an elevator included. For some, an elevator is purely for convenience — no more lugging heavy items up and down stairs! For others, an elevator is a necessity for getting around the home for homeowners with different mobility needs. 

No matter the reason for wanting to have an elevator installed or modernized, it’s important to choose the right elevator company if you want the job done properly. 

Before you choose an elevator company for new elevator installation, these are some of the questions you’ll want to ask:

  1. Are all of your technicians state-certified and properly trained? Can I see proof of this certification? You want this number to be low per elevator, because that indicates the elevator was properly installed in the first place. Some elevator issues can be related to the elevator’s owner not keeping up with a routine maintenance program though. Here’s more information on that. 
  2. How many service calls do you make per year and how many chargeable calls do you make per year? 
  3. What is the typical cost of a service call? You can compare these numbers between elevator companies to see which rates fit your budget best. 
  4. Can I see examples of your work or speak to past clients about their experience? 

Elevator modernization

If your elevator is already installed but you’re interested in elevator modernization, you have all sorts of options. 

These are some of the reasons people move forward with elevator modernization:

● Higher elevator repair costs related to controls than expected

● The elevator is inefficient or unreliable

● Personal safety considerations

● Increased elevator shutdowns and entrapments

● Landing and leveling problems

● Poor ride quality

● To help decrease energy costs

● Serviceability/proprietary controls

● The need for more elevator car space

All of these reasons for wanting to modernize your elevator can be addressed! 

At Rise Above Elevator, some of our upgrades include adding brass or oil rubbed bronze hall calls or a brass or oil rubbed bronze cabin operating panel, as well as increased speed options and adding automatic accordion gate operators. We also offer several wood varieties for your cab, as well as other custom cab options like glass and stainless cabs.
