Paint Can Be a Problem

Why replacing a door is better than painting an existing one:

  • Painting adds weight to the door which can cause spring failure over time
  • Painting decreases the workability of doors leading to rough operation and potentially causing load balance issues
  • Paint can crack, peel and fade in as little as three years

Beyond Looking Good

DBCI clients are reporting several added advantages to replacing their doors:

  • The new, improved look attracts more new tenants, increasing occupancy
  • Improved facilities command higher rental rates
  • Higher customer retention by keeping units secure and easier to use
  • Reduce exposure to legal claims with safer, better operating doors
  • Insurance reductions and potential tax deductions (consult your financial advisor for specific advice)

Curb Appeal Matters

Since up to 80% of your facility is covered by a roll-up door, the easiest way to put a new shine on your facility is with the Door Replacement Program:

  • Currently offering 3rd generation doors, the most reliable and durable door product on the market
  • Dead axel design, harder steel and an adjustable tensioner are just some of the standard features that make those doors the best in the business
  • With manufacturing facilities in strategic spots worldwide and strong vendor relationships, DBCI can cut its cost
  • The doors install approximately 40% more quickly than other manufacturers, further securing budgetary concerns for your facility
