While people are scaling back on other expenses, such as electronics and travel, a custom door remodel adds value and aesthetic appeal
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) June 7, 2008
A leading national manufacturing and design firm for architectural and custom doors says that sales and inquiries remain strong despite the recent economic downturn.
Steiner Doors, a Brooklyn, New York-based firm, reports a consistent level of interest and sales for its architectural and custom doors and windows across almost all product lines. From basic full-glass styles to recent trends such as the Villence and the Maestro to general design inquiries, Steiner Doors sees evidence that not all sectors are hurt by the recent state of the economy.
"With things like foreclosures and rising gas prices, many Americans are feeling worried about where their dollar is going," says Miriam Gluck, Financial Supervisor of Steiner Doors. "Money has to go into long-term propositions right now, whether they be a home, business, or an investment portfolio. We believe that is why Steiner Doors continues to see strong business--custom doors are an investment in their home or business."
Steiner Doors continues to see strong interest in the door and window industry and has hired additional staff to keep pace with the volume of custom door interest. Overall, customer demand appears to stem from a desire to have a high-quality product that will last for many years and a pleasing design that will not appear dated as trends change with clients ranging from homeowners wanting to remodel to large corporations looking to revamp with architectural doors.
"While people are scaling back on other expenses, such as electronics and travel, a custom door remodel adds value and aesthetic appeal," says Miriam. "Steiner Doors is often noted for its quality and attention to detail. We also use the best materials and have a team of experienced, dedicated designers. Because of this, our custom doors are often a long-term investment for a tangible enhancement of a building and property value."
Based on sales and inquiry volume, Steiner Doors sees the strongest custom door interest in classic designs that have aesthetic longevity, though the company continues to field inquiries across all types. Traditional looks, such as basic full-glass styles and Art Deco, have received the most attention. As these styles of custom doors have stood up over time and across trends, their overall longevity appears to provide the stability that pleases people currently looking to invest in their home.
"We're noticing extra attention to what we'd consider the industry's standards. This seems to fall in line with the mindset of the current economy," says Sara Berkowits, Estimating Manager of Steiner Doors. "Our inquiries and sales are generated from people looking for something that is as durable aesthetically as it is functionally."
Steiner Doors offers a wide range of custom doors, including aluminum doors, all-glass doors, automatic doors, exterior French doors, and architectural doors. In addition, Steiner Doors offers windows and skylights.
