truckWhen hiring a company repair or replace your businesses doors, it is a good idea to work with an organization that is well-prepared. And in the industry of commercial door repair, that means hiring a company that has a well-stocked truck. Here are a few benefits that can come with hiring a company that has the right tools and equipment on hand.

Added Reliability

Hiring a company with a well-stocked truck will increase the reliability of the visit. Each truck should stock the most common parts that are used most frequently, which includes closers, rollers, hinges and basic hand and power tools. This will also allow the company to perform each job quickly by having everything that they need when making a repair or installation. This equals a minimal disruption to your business as a project can be completed quickly.

Practice Safety

Well-stocked trucks are capable of practicing at a higher level of safety by having the right equipment stored on the vehicle. It’s also best to work with a company that has reliable and new power tools to prevent mistakes or accidents from occurring with products that may not operate well. In addition, a generator should also be available on the truck to provide enough power to work sites that have remote locations. Service Trucks should also have all appropriate safety equipment including gloves, goggles, first aid kit and fire extinguisher.

Improve Efficiency

Working with a company that has a large inventory available for each day and each visit makes a big different. This will ensure that jobs can be completed quickly by having the right resources at your technician’s disposal. This will save time as it will avoid the technician from having to head back to a warehouse or local supplier to get what they need.

Doors are critical to any structure, and the way they are presented can make a tremendous difference for business owners. Not only are doors crucial to maintain, but it is vital for business owners to make sure that their doors are functioning correctly. While many companies outsource work to sub-contractors, a company that trains and manages its entire team has many benefits.

Direct Contact

Vortex-Man1One of the first advantages you will notice is that the company can provide you with a direct line of communication. This is particularly critical when it comes to emergency jobs. You want to make sure that you are talking to the experts who can make decisions and are ready to help you with your needs in the event of an accident or sudden breakdown. In addition, since there are less parties involved there are less chances of having a communication error.

Lowered Costs

When you cut out the middleman, the customer gets the savings. This means that not only will the communication be better and you will be getting work from the experts trained by the company, but you also get a better rate when less parties are involved.

Faster Responses

Vortex-Truck1We all know that time is money. When you can go directly to the source, you will also get a faster response and get the work done quickly and professionally. Self-performing companies will have dedicated specialists awaiting your call, and you can begin scheduling an appointment as soon as you need assistance.

Peace of Mind

Finally, when you work with a company that self-performs all of their services, they train the entire team of technicians so you know that they are fully licensed and insured. This is particularly critical so that you not only get good service, but you do not open your company up to a variety of legal and safety issues.

SwingDoor-Guide-RailsIf you own a business or manage a building, you know that one of your tasks is to keep your doors well-maintained on a regular basis. You also know that there are many types of doors. There are doors made out of steel, aluminum, wood, or glass. There are also doors that roll-up, some that keep goods cold, and ones that are big enough to allow an airplane through it. So, when it comes to choosing a company to maintain them, you want to pick professionals that are equipped to repair or maintain any type of door.

Well-Trained Technicians

Too many times when a business hires a repairman to fix their door, they find out that when the technician arrives that they unfortunately do not have the skills necessary to repair the specific door. This is a waste of time for busy professionals. A company that specializes in door repair will take the time to train their employees properly on how to maintain all types of doors so that when they make a service call, they will get it right the first time. This type of company will also have the experience to be able to handle your needs effectively by spotting the problems easily and getting your door fixed quickly.

Save Time and Money

What happens when you need to repair many types of doors at your business? Instead of hiring a specialist from various companies, you can save time and money by calling one company and have their technician come out to maintain or repair several types of doors.

FtWorthAt Vortex, we have been serving customers since 1937. And now we have expanded to the Fort Worth area. While providing service for repairs and installation of doors for businesses sounds like a simple task, the benefits to the community are profound. To get a better idea about how door installation, repair, and inspection are giving Fort Worth an advantage, consider the following.

Door inspection, repair and installation saves lives

Is it possible to do a simple business repair that will help the entire community stay safe? Over the past 78 years, Vortex has seen the good that we do with our door services. For instance, emergency exit doors need to be in good working order in the case of a fire or emergency. Our door inspection services for businesses make sure that emergency exit doors are not rusted shut, difficult to open or blocked by poor construction remodeling. A closed fire door also helps fire from spreading to other buildings. Knowing your customers all made it to safety quickly is a point of pride for us because we know that our door inspections and installations could have been a primary reason they survived a fire.

Making the world accessible to people with disabilities

Nothing puts a smile on our face more than helping people with disabilities gain access to a previously closed-off world. In particular, we give advice to business owners and give them an idea of how important disability accessibility is. Once a need is established, we help modify inaccessible, outdated doors by installing easy-to-open interior or exterior doors in business for people using wheelchairs. We are also a vital part of helping business owners select doors that are easy to open for people with mobility issues that need access to automatic door openers. We know you want to make it easy for customers to access your building to do business.

Door installation, inspection, repair and consulting start here

Our recent expansion to Fort Worth means that we have a fleet of trucks that can meet customers’ needs at a moment’s notice to get the fastest door repair service in the area. In addition to repairing and installing doors, we also provide helpful inspections that ensure your door continues to provide function, security and beauty.

AAADMAs a business owner, AAADM should be an important acronym to keep in mind. Before we get ahead of ourselves, what does AAADM even stand for? The American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers.

AAADM defines themselves as “a trade association of power-operated automatic door manufacturers” with the aim to “raise public awareness about automatic doors and administer a program to certify automatic door inspectors” and insure all existing doors meet existing ANSI 1560.10 Safety Standards through the latest technology and safety devices.

Automatic door safety is an important factor especially when it involves a building such as a hospital or somewhere that children frequently visit. Regardless of if your building qualifies as one of the above mentioned or not, it is still important to maintain your automatic doors. We’ll agree that seeing someone walk smack into a glass door can be funny; so long as they aren’t hurt of course. However if it’s your business’s door that didn’t open, it may not be as funny when a lawsuit shows up at that same door.

If your automatic door needs to be serviced or repaired make sure to look for the AAADM certification logo on a website. You don’t want your malfunctioning door to be the next viral YouTube video.

At Vortex, we uphold our standards for safety, which is why we made it a point to have over 100 certified AAADM inspectors on staff. Contact your closest Vortex service center today if you are in need of automatic door servicing or repair.
