Hello! My name is Gil Reite, the owner of Reite Construction,

a General Building Contractor with over 30 years of experience

in Residential & Commercial Construction. Over the last 20 years,

I have been Installing and Servicing Dumbwaiters built by my Father's

company, "Powerlift Dumbwaiter Corp."as an Independent Contractor.


My Father John Reite started building Dumbwaiters back in 1972 when he was the owner of a garage door company "Santa Cruz Overhead Doors".  

During this period of time his elderly Aunt fell carrying some groceries upstairs, taking her life. He thought to himself, if she had installed a Dumbwaiter in her home this tragedy may have been avoided.


At the time Dumbwaiters were very expensive and difficult to install. His solution was genius in its simplicity. He took a basic Garage Door Opener, standing it up vertical and fastening it to a wooden frame for his

1st. Dumbwaiter. Over the next several years, he designed a simpler

and more affordable model for homeowners and businesses,

that a person with some basic mechanical skills could install.


Although my father is no longer with us, his vision of an affordable,

EZ to install Dumbwaiter lives on at Powerlift Dumbwaiter Corp. 

Today my brothers David and Larry Reite run the company and produce

a state of the art line of Dumbwaiters and Mezzanine Lifts that comply

with all ASME 17.1 safety codes and come standard with UL Certified Elevator Controller, powder coated steel rail assembly, door locks, safety switches and adjustable limit switches.


Installation, Service and Repair are provided by a team of Experienced Independent Service Technicians like Reite Construction, with over 30 years

of experience in the construction industry.  We are an Authorized Distributor for Powerlift Dumbwaiters and Mezzanine Lifts with Factory Direct Pricing!
