HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR RESIDENTIAL ELEVATOR?
Residential elevators are a great investment. They can make it easier for disabled or aged people to move around your home. But just like any appliance, residential elevators also undergo wear and tear and system failures. Therefore, it is important to fulfil their maintenance requirements to keep the elevators in safe working order. Regular maintenance also saves you a lot of money on avoidable repairs.

You can discuss with the manufacturer to find out which parts does he have that are compatible with your elevator model. A lot of people replace their elevator’s old fixtures and railings with new ones to give it an upgrade that matches their home interior. Replacement of motor or control system If your elevator’s motor or control system is damaged beyond repair, you should get it replaced to keep your elevator in working order. However, before you decide, make sure to do the cost calculations of replacing the entire thing. It costs somewhere around $8000-$10,000 to replace elevator’s control system and around $10,000-$15,000 to replace its motor. On the other hand, the cost of replacing the entire elevator is about $10,000-$50,000 depending on your elevator model. So sometimes, it might be a better choice to just replace the entire elevator instead of replacing its parts.
