Be Smart About Your Dumbwaiter

Dumbwaiters are not intended to transport people or any other living thing, except maybe a houseplant. Their small dimensions, raised entrance door, and location should easily reinforce this fact—but sometimes this is not the case.

On occasion, this concept can be challenged by those (usually children) who just might think it would be “interesting” to put the family pet inside the dumbwaiter and give it a ride to the next floor. Or more seriously, climb inside themselves and go for it, with their sibling or a friend pushing the buttons.

The Pitfalls of a Shallow Pit

Some elevator companies boast that they only require a 6 or 8-inch deep pit and present that as a way for you to save a few extra bucks on their product as well as the cement work. This makes the proposal slightly more attractive in terms of cost, but what are you getting in return?

How to Buy a Home Elevator

A residential elevator is not a washing machine. Oftentimes homeowners decide on one as if it was a standard household appliance. Like a washer, they wish to purchase a home elevator manufactured by an established company with a typical one-year warranty. They tend to focus primarily on cost, figuring that "they are all kind of the same" and perhaps with the thought that if the elevator survives the first year under warranty, they have a good product.
