You probably wouldn’t buy a beautiful, expensive painting and then hang it up on the wall with strips of duct tape or nails hammered through the canvas. By the same token, you shouldn’t invest good money in a top-of-the-line front door for your commercial establishment without also taking care to make sure that it’s properly installed. Your outward-facing commercial doors project the initial public image of your business, and, yes, choosing the right storefront doors and windows is integral to that image, but so is your choice of exterior door installers. Without proper door mounting, it really doesn’t matter what the doors look like if they don’t work correctly. It’s a complete waste to retrofit your business front with a trendy new look if it’s actually more broken down than before.
The True Expense of Poor Door Installation
Just as importantly, the quality of your commercial door installation can affect whether your new door will continue to function as it’s meant to. Does it live up to its promises? If it’s a security door that suffers from a shoddy installation, whether it was hung wrong, the locking mechanisms don’t line up, or it doesn’t open and close properly – well then, it’s not really a security door, is it? The same principles apply for any other type of door, especially public ports of entry to your business. You don’t want your automated exterior double doors failing to open and close properly, possibly accidentally assaulting a customer in the process. Or if your exterior wood door installation was done without proper attention to spacing (wood expands and contracts with temperature and humidity changes), good luck opening and closing that thing in the dead of the summer. Careless installation, whether of a storefront door, overhead garage door or some other variety, can give rise to a whole host of problems down the line, and all of them are going to cost you more money than it would have to just choose the most reputable exterior door installer in your area.
Careless Door Installation Can Lead to:
- Gaps and cracks
◦ Can allow vermin to enter the premises
◦ Will hurt your ability to be energy efficient
◦ Invite damage issues like corrosion, oxidation, or damage from said vermin
- Security issues
◦ If the door stops closing properly, it takes one time for an employee not to double-check they shoved it shut for you to get broken into.
◦ Lock mechanism corroding or malfunctioning make that door a weak spot
- Breakdown of the door system
◦ Expensive repairs that could have been avoided
◦ Issues (once again, avoidable) that cause you to need to have the door replaced way before you should have had to.
