Can My Home Support a Stair Lift?

If you have gone to great pains to keep your home in working order, the last thing you want to do is cause damage by installing a mobility device. Many customers worry that a stair lift will permanently alter their home and reduce the resale value should they choose to move out down the road. Those who own older homes also worry that their stairs simply weren't built to handle such a load.

While these are all valid concerns, take a moment to think about all that your stairs have been through up until this point. Have you moved large beds, dressers and other furniture up and down the stairs? If so, a stair lift will put less pressure and stress on your stairs than you have probably already subjected them. It is safe to say that the vast majority of homes today are perfectly equipped to support a stair lift.

The best way to minimize the impact of a stair lift in your home is to hire The Colorado Stair Lift Store to make sure that the lift seamlessly blends in with your home and is installed properly, which will eliminate any damage to your home. It is also important to remember that the stair lift will be installed directly onto the stair and not the walls. While this will require screws to be placed in the treads of your stairs, when you work with us, you can feel confident that any lasting signs of the stair lift will be kept to a minimum. If you need to remove the lift before selling your home or the user has relocated to a facility, our professional installer will also be able to expertly remove the lift and leave your home intact.

How to Measure for a Stair Lift

For those who opt to complete the measurement process themselves, here are a few tips that will ensure precise measurements for straight stairways, and make your installation project as smooth as possible. Remember that your stair lift can be installed on either side of your staircase. The choice may depend on the design of your staircase, but is completely up to you. While you can certainly take measurements yourself, it is a lot easier if you recruit a helper to assist you.

First, you will want to stand at the top of the stairs and extend the measuring tape all the way to the bottom of the stairs. As you are doing this, make sure that the tape touches the edge of each step on the way down. Pull the tape tight and record the number. From this same position, record the length from the top of the staircase to the front edge of the bottom step. To determine the amount of clearance at the top landing, place the measuring tape at the edge of the landing step and extend it to the nearest fixed wall or door. This same measurement should be taken at the bottom landing. Start by placing the measuring tape against the bottom step and extending it to the nearest wall or door. Record both of these values.
 
 
 
Next, measure the width of each step. While every step should have the exact same width, take the time to measure each step individually to ensure accuracy. Measure the height of each step or the amount of space between each tread. Again, this number should remain constant with each step, but be sure to measure each step.

Finally, you will need to record the depth of each step. Record the value for each step. It is also a good idea to adhere to the adage “measure twice and cut once.” Double-check your measurements by repeating the process. This could help you avoid problems down the line.
