What is Expensive ?

"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little." (Ruskin)

Entry doors are expensive. At times, a high quality door can cost more than a small car. Therefore, performing due diligence is a proper and essential part of the process. Correction, executing quality due diligence is critical to your success. Without it, the entryway may fail to achieve what it was set out to do.

A great quote by John Ruskin: “It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

The intent of his quote is not to unwisely spend money but to spend it wisely - while keeping in mind the objective.  With technology, researching and purchasing products is not the same as it was twenty-five years ago. Nowadays, our dollars and wishes cover a broader footprint.  What wasn't available to us yesteryear, is now a click or phone call away. As a result, we bring in lumber, stone, appliances, electronics and other products from thousands of miles away.  Under normal circumstances, there is a need for a product. This need initiates research and an awareness of available products. More often than not, additional research is conducted and suppliers are contacted.  Pricing is obtained and decisions are made. Consumers today benefit from a “No one is too far” approach to the purchasing process.

At Modern Steel Doors, our approach is very simple: do what’s best for our clients to ensure product longevity, performance and a high-level of satisfaction.  Our clients span the globe - they really do. Whenever there is the “Proverbial ‘Y’ in the road,” we always select the option that best promotes product sustainability and ensures quality throughout the life of the product.  We design systems and procedures that ensure very predictable and consistent outcomes each and every time.

Specialists do it well because they do it all of the time.
