Spotlight On Cardinal Door’s A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau

Cardinal Door’s long-lasting reputation of exceptional service is celebrated with our Better Business Bureau A+ rating. By putting the customer needs before our own, we hope to build a reputation centered around trust and community.

When a contracting company is a member of the BBB, customers know exactly what they are getting. Their rating system allows you, the homeowner or business owner, to decide for yourself which company is up to your standards. We are thrilled to announce that our rating with the Better Business Bureau is an A+.

The BBB’s rating system takes 13 separate factors into play, such as number of complaints filed and amount of time in business. These factors are all weighted separately to ensure an accurate standing. The ratings can range from A+, the highest, to an F, the lowest.

We are very proud of our rating with the BBB and are excited to maintain it through continued customer satisfaction.

Tips for finding a contractor

The Better Business Bureau wrote a list of recommendations when looking for a garage door contractor. One thing they repeatedly stress within these tips is to use a contractor you trust. After a serious storm in the area, many homeowners and business owners may see multiple door-to-door salesmen who engage in high-pressure sales tactics.

It’s important during a time like this, or any other time when you are considering contracting, that you check the business’ credentials. The BBB makes this easy when the contractor in question is a member.

The BBB also recommends you check with your insurance company when there is major damage. Highly rated companies are more transparent with you and your insurance needs. At Cardinal Door, we are 100% focused on making the repair process as simple, efficient and inexpensive for you as possible.

Using Commercial Doors to Increase Business

Using Commercial Doors to Increase Business

When a customer, prospective employee, or new visitor first comes to your business, do you know what is on his or her mind? It’s the ability to locate the business, which if venturing to an unfamiliar area, can sometimes be an overwhelming task. Fortunately, by upgrading current commercial doors, St. Louis businesses will easily stand out from others. Not only does a new door add extra appeal and provide a facelift to your business’ current exterior, but it also serves as an additional medium of advertising, drawing more potential customers to your location. The following are some of the best ways your business can maximize visibility when selecting a new, commercial door.

First, consider placing your logo on the door. This will easily allow a customer to locate your storefront based on an additional source (logo plus address, versus logo only), and help to authenticate your business as a reputable provider. Additionally, when foot or vehicle traffic passes by the location, it also serves as another form of advertising, allowing people to see what service your location provides.

Sarah's Birthday - Gateway Harley Davidson

Sarah's BirthdayJust a quick note to let you know you really made Sarah’s day the other day.  She hasn’t stopped talking about you, and she carries around your business card.  God Bless you.  Thank you for making a difference in “our Sarah’s life”.

See you on Sarah’s birthday, and thanks again for making a difference.  Sometimes in our society, I feel like people don’t really appreciate the impact each and every interaction has in every individual’s life and how one little simple conversation, smile, or gesture can make such a positive difference.  It’s too bad that it sometimes it takes tragedy to teach us to “Let God drive our bus so we can enjoy the ride!”.  See you soon!
