Elevator Installation, Repair, & Service

The invention of the elevator

Though elevators are a common fixture in our society today, they are relatively new inventions, with the only things like it that came before being winch and pulley systems used in medieval and ancient architecture.

Over the last century, elevators have appeared everywhere: shopping malls, schools, hospitals, office buildings, hotels, and even, in some cases, homes. In the past this luxury was limited to those with exorbitant wealth, and the space to accommodate such machinery. They were incredibly useful, however, and as time went on, and the price tag has continued to drop to a reasonable price range, so they’ve become more and more commonly found in modern homes.

Many types of elevators to choose from

Of course, there isn’t just one type of elevator, and so there is no one size or type that fits all applications. In the intervening years since Alexander Miles patented the first electric elevator, innovations were made on the original designs of those early models, leaving us with many options to choose from now, such as:

  • Geared & Gearless Traction Elevators
  • Hydraulic Elevators
  • MRL (Machine-Room-Less) Elevators
  • Vacuum Elevators

A specialist can help you to choose the right make and model for your home and family, as well as the style that would best fit with your decor. The professionals can help with everything, from permits to planning to installation, and all you have to do is look forward to the ease of an elevator.

Of course, as with any machinery in the home, there will need to be annual maintenance runs, and the occasional inspection every few months to avoid any serious issues with the elevator.
