Irvine, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
McKinley Elevator Corp. was highlighted in an article published in the business section of the Los Angeles Times today. The article 'Popularity of home elevators gets a lift' reports that the sales and installation of residential elevators continue to rise and cited McKinley Elevator as a source.
The reasons for the rise in popularity appear to be cost, convenience and architectural interest. In the past, the cost to purchase and install a home elevator was for the rich and famous, a luxury not possible for the middle class. With baby boomers and Gen-Xers having more disposable income, home elevators have become more mainstream. Home elevators are very convenient but also allow access throughout the home for those with physical mobility issues. Many people facing aging and accessibility challenges have discovered it is a more viable solution to install either a home elevator or stair lifts than to sell their current home and purchase a home that is more mobility friendly. Home renovations are predicted to continue their double digit rise this year – another key to the growth of home elevator installations.
McKinley Elevator, headquartered in Irvine and one of Southern California's principal distributors and installers of home elevators and stairlifts, has opened a showroom "to meet the explosion in demand," said Mike Burke, vice president of sales. In 2013, he said, they've seen a huge architect-driven push for home elevators.
Architects appreciate the design element and versatility that a home elevator brings to a project. More people aging in their homes or living with relatives has made creating accessible areas more important than ever. Several insurance companies now cover some costs related to the purchase and installation of home elevators or wheelchair lifts.
