There are so many questions about fitting a stair lift to a home. If you’ve never had it done before you may be confused as to what you should know. Though you won’t be fitting it yourself, you may want to be aware of what to expect and have some of the most common questions answered prior to committing.
Will my Home Suffer Any Damage?
The process for fitting a stairlift is not a really messy one. It won’t damage the home but be prepared that the track has to be fitted to the walls. This means drilling and mounting of durable hardware will happen. However, it won’t be a bad thing. In fact, chair lifts can add to the value of a home.
How do I Know which StairLift is for Me?
There are two different types of chairlifts. There are straight stairlifts and there are curved ones. Knowing which ones to buy takes only simple surveying by the homeowner. It is suggested that you ask one of our trained staff members at Stairlifts Swanage to survey the home for you. This way they can answer pertinent questions pertaining to your home.
The Straight StairLift:
If you have a straight staircase then obviously you can settle on a straight stair lift. The only thing left to do is consider whether or not an electric or battery stairlift is good for you. Then consider what size and shape chair you need. This depends on the height and girth of the person who will be using the stair lift. The straight stairlift is the least expensive but it’s performance is limited to one type of staircase.
The Curved Stair Lift:
This is the most expensive option but, it is the one with the most versatile functionality. If you have anything apart from a straight staircase then you will need a curved one. This is because a straight stairlift can’t make turns or move across platforms. Most staircases are not perfectly straight, especially in newer homes. Spirals may or may not be accommodating to a stairlift so you need to have Stair Lifts Swanage assess your staircase if it fits that model. Some staircases may need two stairlifts simply because the platform is too big or is split between a hallway or catwalk.
Is there any Technical Equipment Involved?
There are a lot of perks that a stairlift from Chairlifts Swanage can come with. It depends on your cost package and your needs and wants. This you can discuss with an assessor and choose what you want. You can get a remote control or a safety sensor as well as a digital display.
