Otis at Home -
How a home elevator increases the value of the home
ICOC Glass  

According to a study conducted by Florida State University, having an elevator in your home could increase the resale value by as much as 10%. Given the installation cost of an elevator is generally about $25,000.00 to $30,000.00 (standard 2 stop laminate cab), a home valued at $500,000 might increase in value by as much as $50,000.

CE - About


MYTH - Some people believe that if an elevator is stuck between floors they are in danger of falling and should try to get out.


TRUTH - Attempting to leave the car on your own could result in serious injury or death. Elevator cars are designed to be "safe rooms", and the safest place is inside the car. You should ring the alarm and utilize the emergency telephone if the elevator is equipped with one. You should only leave the car with the assistance of professional rescue personnel.

We hope you enjoy this and benefit from its content.  We are always open to suggestions and, more importantly, available in person or by phone to answer any of your questions or concerns.
