Signs Your Elevators Need RepairOur team at Belanger Engineering has over 20 years of experience in the engineering business, and we want to help you keep your building in excellent condition. One of the most important systems in any building is the elevators, as they are the primary means of access to the upper floors and the way most people will travel between floors. Like all other mechanical systems, elevators will occasionally malfunction and need to be repaired. In this article, our team will go over a few warning signs that your elevators are developing problems. If you notice any of the following happening to your elevators, we encourage you to give us a call to have our engineers take a look.

  • Long Wait Times – If the people in your building complain about the elevators taking longer to arrive, then you should call our team to schedule elevator repairs. You want the people living or working in your building to be able to get to their floor as quickly and conveniently as possible, and that requires speedy elevators.
  • Mis-Leveling – Another sign your elevators need to be repaired is mis-leveling, which is the industry term for an elevator failing to align properly with the exterior elevator doors. If people in your building notice the elevator opening when the cabin floor is not quite level with the hall floor, then you should give us a call.
  • Frequent Issues – Lastly, if your elevators are experiencing frequent issues, then it might be time to think about upgrading your system altogether.
