Many people spend too long considering whether they should install a stairlift in their home. It is natural to put off doing things for yourself, but quite often the excuses we make are not based in fact. The installation of a stair lift is something other people would support, if they felt it would improve your quality of life in your home. Some people think their stairs are unsuited to a stairlift, while others worry about affecting the property value. These fears are easily addressed.

  • My Stairs are Too Complicated for a Lift: Stairlifts have been around a long time, and there has been a lot of clever engineering to address some of the more irregular stair designs. Modern Stairlifts are installed in sections, and as the contour or angle of the stairway changes, different sections can be used. Stairlifts can go around corners and accommodate level changes as well. If you are interested, you can contact a stairlift engineer in Market Harborough to find out more.
  • A Stairlift Will Reduce the Value of My Home: The installation of a stairlift is a simple procedure to a professional. The removal of a stairlift is even more straightforward. Though it is possible that some cosmetic issues will need to be addressed. And if you leave the lift installed, it is likely to raise the value of your home. Regardless, stairlifts will not have a negative influence on the value of your real estate.

 If you are considering a stairlift, you should talk to an installer and get specific answers to your questions. When you need a lift, the sooner you decide the better.
