Lifting Spirits with Mechanical Lifts

A mechanical lift changed our world. It was called the elevator. An invention that gave rise to the skyscraper and centuries later it’s still creating new ways to live and work.
Today mechanical lifts can be individualized to give amazing accessibility to those in wheelchairs, using walkers and people with limited mobility. Today mechanical lifts are making life better in homes all across this area. The industry leader to remodel your home for more accessibility is Glickman/Design Remodel Build.

Elevating Lives

Most homes in our area are two levels. As we age, moving between those levels becomes more difficult. If your home includes someone in a wheelchair or an aging parent who has difficulty climbing stairs on his or her own, you need a solution. Thanks to Glickman’s expertise, families are installing home elevators to assist loved ones with moving from floor to floor. Depending on your home and needs, installation can be quicker than you think. The experts at Glickman will evaluate your home and chose the best options after thoroughly researching what best for you. This one adjustment to your home can mean that elderly family members do not have to be placed in a retirement home but can rather stay with family.

Elevator Options

An elevator can be added using existing square footage or a shaft can be built on the home’s exterior if there is not adequate space in the existing home. Our designers can create a plan that adds to the visual interest and beauty to your home both inside and out, in addition to the functionality it provides. A shaft built along the exterior of your house with doors opening into the home can be a great option. A 6-foot by 6-foot addition can often be enough and lets you preserve the look of your interior.
Today elevators for home usually increase in your home’s resale value which means you’re selling into a much larger market.

Stair Lifts

Stairlifts provide another option for helping those with limited mobility move around the house. They are perfect for many staircases and are used by one person at a time. They’re installed on your existing staircase, so little remodeling is needed. If you’d like to learn more about chair lifts, call Glickman. Our experts will come into your home to measure your staircase’s slope, width and style and create a custom design to fit your mobility needs. Chair lifts bring independence and accessibility to the home you love.

The experts at Glickman will show you how ceiling lifts can be mounted directly into your home’s ceiling beams a path can be customized to guide the individual from room to room.
