CERTIFIED AGING-IN-PLACE SPECIALIST (CAPS)

The fastest growing segment of the residential remodeling industry is home modifications for aging-in-place.

People value their independence. They want to age independently and stay within the comfort of their own home, but most houses haven’t been designed for aging adults or people with disabilities.

Older homeowners, people planning for their retirement, and those considering multi-generational households with aging parents are searching for solutions. This is one reason why the demand for residential elevators, lifts, and dumbwaiters is increasing.

Florida Residential Elevator Customer Feedback

“Upon receipt of proposals, our selection of Southeast Elevator was fairly easy. They were professional, listened and worked with us to meet our desires, and were prompt and clear with communication. Southeast Elevator was the only company that committed to provide us the size cab (8 foot in height) that we wanted. 

The communications with Stephanie regarding the contracting process and the options with respect to the cab and finishes were great. The fact that they build the finish of the cabs themselves was an additional comfort. 

The installation crews were professional, respectful and got the job done on schedule and per our agreement.”

James O’Brien, Florida

“I had a very good experience with them. My contractor skipped town on us and they helped me out immensely. Office staff and the installers were wonderful!”

Thomas Banks, Florida
