Thread: Stairs

  1. #1


    How are stairs usually dealt with in a fairly large house basement and upstairs from main floor for a quadriplegic in a electric wheelchair?

    Are the stairs a straight run, or switchback? The latter is much more expensive and difficult to set up. An elevator is really best, but if that is not possible, a platform stair lift should be considered. Not cheap. Often it is cheaper to consider moving.

    Both type stairs straight for the basement, spiralish to upstairs.

    In general, approximately how much do these stair lifts cost?

    Anyone know, are we talking 10,000 or 50,000

    Depending upon the actual situation, between $10,000-20,000 for one staircase for a two story home. Platform lifts are generally more expensive than lifts that require you to transfer from your wheelchair onto a seat.
