From the bottom of our hearts: Thank You!

Proper Access

When installing a new commercial elevator, proper access is key!  Elevator installers need proper access to the machine room when they arrive on the job site.

Below is a picture of improper access to an elevator machine room.  In our industry, this sort of occurrence is commonplace for new commercial installations in Atlanta, Georgia.   Our recommendation for the contractor is to contact their elevator company for a pre-start walk through before beginning the elevator installation.

Pete Witalis Homes in Norcross

Genesis Elevator Company installed a home elevator for Pete Witalis Homes at a residence in Norcross.  The lot was small, but the owners really needed the space.  The solution was to go vertical, and vertical means stairs.

Or does it?

For ease of accessibility, Pete solicited Genesis to install a home elevator for the owners. Now with the elevator in place, accessibility is as simple as a touch of a button.

Home Elevator Happiness

In many cases, your home elevator is only as good as the people who installed and service it.

Many home owners struggle with the type of elevator they want and who manufactures it. Did you know that the company and people who install and service home elevators can be just as important as the elevator itself? A home elevator that is not properly installed can lead to years of headaches and hassles.

Elevators that are installed and serviced by experienced and knowledgeable mechanics will have decades of trouble free use. Genesis Elevator is proud to serve all of Georgia and North Florida with  multiple installation crews and service techs. Our Elevator mechanics have the expertise to get the job done right the first time and keep our home owners happy.

Call Genesis Elevator today to see how we can serve you!
