Most would assume that when the home is already under construction for renovations, it is the worst time to undergo further construction by adding an in-home elevator or chairlift. However, it can actually be the best time. Whether you are undergoing construction on an existing home or are building an entirely new home, there are benefits to considering adding this to the construction list.
If you are already undergoing renovations, why not get them done all at once? Even further, the contractors you are already paying for the renovations at the time could take on a lot of the customization that comes with installing an elevator or chairlift. Since they are already working on your home, it could be part of the package that is already being paid for.
In many cases, since they are already on-site and have their tools, companies will be willing to work with homeowners to get further work since it won’t cost them much extra the way a brand new job does. It also helps to work with contractors in which you already have a relationship with, as the familiarity with them will often lead to a better deal. In fact, if you are already spending a lot of money with a company, they might offer lower costs due to your continued relationship.
Even further, they will already know and understand the layout and build of your home. This means there will be less risk of mishaps and miscommunication. Much of the issues that occur during construction of a new elevator or chairlift is not understanding the measurements and specifications of a home. Plus, you are already set up for construction and have cleared away boxes and items, so it will be more convenient for you and your family in the long term to get all construction done at once.
When constructing a new home, it makes good sense to build an elevator or chairlift, even if you don’t necessarily need one at the time. If you plan to sell or rent the home, it will already be prepared for any tenants or buyers. It will also increase the value of the home. Even further, contractors can consider specifications as the home is being designed and built rather than considering modifications after the home has already been completed. Without the extra hours and resources, you could wind up with an elevator or chairlift that is high-end without the same price someone installing such quality would face in their already built home.
