451px-Handicapped_Accessible_sign.svgHave you been told that your business is not ADA compliant by a customer, employee, government agency or ADA Consultant? While it can be difficult to understand how to make your business ADA compliant, the truth is that getting your business up-to-code has several advantages when accessible interior and exterior doors are installed. With the right advice and the right door installation company by your side, your business can be ADA compliant within a few days.

How does having disability accessible doors benefit a business financially?

Being ADA compliant means that when someone with a disability comes to your business, they have an easy way to enter your establishment. This could mean having a door that automatically opens and closes at the touch of a button. And when a customer with a disability can access your business easily, you may win them over because they recognize that you are a business that is helpful to customers who require more assistance.

Get free money to be an ADA compliant business

Did you know that there are government programs that cover some or part of the money required to make a business ADA compliant? That’s right. And a business that makes their building ADA compliant for customers may also be eligible for tax breaks at the local, state or federal level. One of the main advantages of using a professional door repair company to help you become ADA compliant is that they will help you get the right paperwork into the right hands for processing your tax rebate.

Reap the benefits of lower business insurance premiums

The hidden advantage of being ADA compliant is that some insurance companies see this as a way to lower your annual premiums. In particular, having an ADA compliant building means that, even if a person with disabilities was in your place of business and an accident happened, you would already be prepared for that event because you had the proper doors installed.

Fort_Worth_Stockyards_EntranceYour business’s doors provide protection against the weather, security against intruders, and they are one of the first things your customers see when they come to visit you. This is why keeping your doors well-maintained is essential. Read on to learn more about the importance of maintaining and repairing your doors in Fort Worth, TX.

Aesthetic Appeal

A well-maintained front door functions as the gateway to your business, so you always want to keep it visually appealing. If a door is marred, stained, chipped or cracked, it detracts from the professional and inviting appearance. In order to prevent your customers from being turned off by your business, make sure that your doors are regularly-maintained so they are always looking their best.

Protection Against the Elements

If your door is not in good repair, it will not keep the outdoor elements at bay. Even worn out weather stripping can allow air from the outside to come inside your building. A professional door repair service helps keep your doors protected, even when the fickle Fort Worth weather wants to affect your indoor comfort.

A front-, side- or rear-entry door that is in disrepair is an invitation to burglars and other unwanted visitors.

Fort_Worth_sealMost people recognize that weather can be destructive, especially when it comes to your doors! Even when you work to protect your business or storefront door from the elements, it will eventually need a few weather-related repairs. We would like to share some insight to how the weather can affect your doors in the Fort Worth area.

The rusting and dusting effects of small particles

Fort Worth is a unique place, and there is a particular condition that arises in the area that may have happened to you. Sometimes, there is nothing truly wrong with your door, but it seems a little off. For example, it does not hang properly from the hinges — no matter how many times you may have tried to drill the screws back into place yourself. The outside of the door may be prone to looking dingy or rusty for no real reason. The effects of dust blown around before and after storms combined with a humid environment are the silent and slow killers of doors. To reverse the effects of fine sand and humidity grinding against the metal parts of your door and creating rust corrosion, a tune-up from a professional door repair specialist is all you need to get it back in good working order.

Storms and hail can rip through doors

Fort Worth is known for its severe storms with high winds, and they can affect your door. If you have a door that has been pummeled by a severe storm, you may not be able to open it at all. There may also be damage to the paint or the overall structure of the door after a storm. We usually replace a storm-damaged door for security reasons. If the door is a precious part of your business, we can fully restore it to its former glory with the help of our wood-working and metal specialists.
