How much is a stairlift?

Stairlifts vary in price depending on the model and style. A new Bruno stair lift for a common indoor straight stairway costs between $3,000.00-$4,000.00 for a basic stair lift to as high $7,000.00-$8000.00 for the luxury model that includes all the bells and whistles. New outdoor straight stair lifts start at the $4,000.00-$5000.00 range. There are virtually additional options that can be added to an outdoor straight lift other than if you would require an extra-long rail. Bruno keeps the electronics simple due to its exposure to the elements. Bruno indoor and outdoor curved lifts are custom made and do not snap together like other manufacturers. They start at $7,000.00-$8000.00 for indoor and $9,000.00-$10,000.00 for outdoor. The price depends on the type of turn, number of turns, length of rail or track and optional bells and whistles. All commercial lifts and multifamily homes do run higher being in New York State because they require an overspeed brake and a possible permit from the municipality of where it is being installed.

Can stairlifts be installed in any style home or do they typically require extra construction?

Generally, we can install a lift in any home as long as the stairway has the proper width to accommodate both the lift and the user. On very rare occasions, minor alterations need to be made prior to installation. More occasionally a licensed electrician may be required to bring an electric receptacle to the lift’s location. In these cases, either the homeowner can do it themselves, hire their own contractor, or use one of Dermer’s recommended contractors.
