I am not sure if our wall is suitable for a stairlift. Is there a way round this?
Contrary to popular belief, a stairlift is not fixed to the wall but directly to the steps themselves. This means that your wall will remain intact. The supports that carry the track are secured to the stairs, so your stairlift rests by the stairs alone. This makes installation quick and straightforward and your stairs are kept clean and tidy.
- I have underfloor heating. Will the floor be drilled?
- The walls are of weak construction (e.g. plasterboard) - is this okay?
- Would it be best to paint the walls before or after installation?
- Will the walls be damaged during installation?
- What about the power supply?
- Will I be able to keep existing doors at the top or bottom of the stairs?
- Can the floor covering be left in place?
- Will building work be required if I have a stairlift installed?
