Elevator Inspection & Maintenance


Maintenance frequency is determined in conjunction with our customer, based upon elevator usage, brand equipment (Stros, Pega, Geda, USA Hoist, Alimak), environmental location (such as frigid temperatures), and criticality of up-time. McDonough Elevators' service contracts are designed to troubleshoot any issues before they become costly problems. With our highly trained technicians, we provide reliable service and repairs every time, which means fewer call-outs and fewer inconveniences for your workers.  We understand that response time is critical to our clients and it goes hand-in-hand with the quality of the work that we provide.
