Some contractors will have experience with home elevators and will be able to help you with the design of the room that will be home to the custom elevator.
The planning process for a custom home elevator is complex, but it does not have to be difficult. The design of the elevator should be geared toward what the finished product will look like.
This why Artisan Elevators works with customers to provide a 3-D model of their elevator before the actual elevator is finished. It allows the customer to get a truer sense of what the elevator will look like once it’s completed. The model shows the elevator from all angles. Such a model can also be helpful to a home contractor.
Again, a big part of the custom elevator design process will be deciding where the elevator will go in your home. This will help the home contractor lay out plans for the construction of the room. The elevator type will also be important. The most common types of home elevators are hydraulic elevators, winding drum elevators, machine traction drive elevators and vacuum elevator. The type of elevator you choose may also impact the way the room is built.
