Types of stair lifts in Baltimore

baltimore skyline

In general, the right stair lift for you depends on your staircase. Stair lifts are divided into four main categories:

  • Straight chair lifts: These are the cheapest, most basic type of stair lift. However, expect to pay more for staircases with more than 14 stairs.
  • Curved stair lifts: These stair lifts are custom-made for homes with curved stairways, multistory stairwells or staircases with a landing. These models are more expensive and take longer to install because they have to fit your stairwell’s unique geometry.
  • Outdoor stair lifts: Outdoor stair lifts are a good choice for Baltimore homes with exterior staircases. These lifts can withstand the elements to allow for greater mobility outside the home.
  • Standing stair lifts: If someone has a hard time sitting, standing stair lifts are often more comfortable. Also called perch stair lifts, these models allow users to stand or lean during use.

You can also customize your stair lift to fit your needs. For example, if you have a narrow staircase or family members who also use the stairway, it may make sense to purchase a more narrow system or one with foldable seats and footrests. Some companies also allow you to customize the color of your system or add features like remote control capabilities and collision sensors.

Stair lift cost in Baltimore

While the cost of a stair lift can range from $2,000 - $15,000, you should expect to spend around $3,500 for a straight stair lift in Baltimore. If you have a curved staircase, prices start around $12,000.

To help offset these costs, many Baltimore companies offer financing options. Used or rental models are also available for less than buying a new unit.

Baltimore stair lift FAQ

Can I install my stair lift myself?

Yes, you can install your stair lift yourself. However, DIY installation usually violates a lift’s warranty agreement, so you would have to pay out of pocket for any issues you experience later on. Many Baltimore companies include installation with the purchase of a stair lift, so DIY installation is often unnecessary.

Are stair lifts tax deductible in Maryland?

If your stair lift is deemed medically necessary by your doctor, you can deduct the cost from your taxes.

How long does it take to install a stair lift in Baltimore?

In Baltimore, a straight stair lift can be installed in as little as one day, but curved stair lifts may take up to a week for proper installation.

How much weight can a stair lift hold?

A standard stair lift holds up to 350 pounds. If you need your stair lift to hold more weight, look for heavy-duty or bariatric stair lifts.

Can you rent stair lifts in Baltimore?

Yes, some of the companies on our list offer stair lift rentals in Baltimore.
