Affordable Iron DoorsMisleading product

This guys website says that they have been in business for 10 years. After further investigation they have been in business 1 1/2 years. The doors are not finished very well after they are fabricated. I believe they come out of China and they are not energy efficient.

Their showroom is a tiny strip mall suite with about 15 doors to view. They are just a broker in my opinion. I would not be surprised if they were in business one day and gone the next. Be aware if you are giving them a deposit for a custom door as the lead-time is very long and you could loose your money.

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for our wonderful door. We absolutely love it. Your installers did an impeccable job putting it in. I'm so happy with the quality of your product as well as the installation. It was well worth the wait. Our neighbors have already been complimenting the door. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend your company.

    Thanx again,
    Mark Bachard, Stevenson Ranch, CA

    "Thanks for the phone call following up on the installation of my door. You were right the installation
    went very smoothly and Hank did a great job. I refered a couple of people that came over to see the door
    when Hank was here and I think he stopped by to get the measurements from one on his way home.
    Hopefully this will bring some additional jobs your way". Thanks again,

    I would like to add my experience with Mr. Duncan. I too was frustrated as I had placed and order of 5 doors with Mr. Duncan. There was a brief time (approx. 2-3 weeks) that I was left incommunicado, however Mr. Duncan came through and AS PROMISED delivered a quality product, be it several weeks later than anticipated. He compensated with a discount on the doors. I am convinced that Mr. Duncan was placed in a horrible situation and has made it through while maintaining his quality standard as well as his dignity. As a builder, I am pleased to continue to do business and place additional orders with Mr. Duncan and his company. S**t happens to everyone, the important thing is how one handles the situation. I am convinced that Mr. Duncan made the best of a potentially devastating situation and came through as promised.

    I too bought a door from Affordable Iron Doors and waited a really long time to get it. However, after Gary explained their company had been a victim of theft from a previous manufacturer in China and being that we were referred to him by our builder… we trusted the information in their weekly update report. Once we did finally get the door, Gary gave us a nice discount for the inconvenience + the new product was even nicer than the samples in the showroom! Long story short...I would definitely buy another door or refer a family member to Affordable Iron Doors.

    My name is Gary Duncan; I am the owner of Affordable Iron Doors in Los Angeles, CA. I accept full responsibility for any negative comment or reviews placed on this or any other website on line. However there are always 2 sides to each story, please allow me to explain the circumstances...

    We had been doing business with a once reputable company in China named FUJIAN SHENGEN ARTS & CRAFTS CO., LTD.No.2, Xinguang road, Xinyang industrial park, Haicang district, Xiamen, China TEL: +[protected] FAX: +[protected] ZIP: 361022. Contact name: Simon 011-861-[protected] [email protected]
    Unfortunately that manufacturer resolved they were tired of dealing with the pressures felt by a more established local dealer that had lost allot of sales to our young company.
    First the two conspired to destroy the credibility and reputation of Affordable Iron Doors in the most vicious manner imaginable. Next we had been notified by the manufacturer of a massive flood that had demolished their facility sending multiple workers to the hospital which resulted in additional delays leaving some clients to begin questioning the legitimacy of the situation. This however was later proven to be false based on the inability of the manufacturer to provide evidence and later by their own admission. The final blow was the last container of doors we ordered never arrived whatsoever and even worse they had been paid in full!
    Affordable Iron Doors took immediate action to update each client as well as offer a reasonable discount on every order. Then we focused on correcting this set back with a giant leap forward introducing an entirely new line of heavy duty 12 gauge iron doors made from a distinguished overseas manufacturers that has now custom built each door we sell to pass coastal hurricane tests...making it one of the finest doors available in the world!

    We sincerely apologize to all of our many clients who were affected by the dishonesty of the previous manufacturer. Affordable Iron Doors can positively assure you this was an isolated incident that has since been resolved and put into the past. A special thank you to those great clients who stood by our side, never forgetting that it's not what happens to us in life, but how we handle it.

    Thank You,

    Gary Duncan

    Please note that the man who posred this review, doe not even exsist nor has he ever purchases a door from our company. We are confused to see how such an "expert" can make such claims with out even owning the product. Unfortunatley competitors who don't sell many doors just sit around on You tube and google in the hopes they can catch up to the leaders in their industry.
    Did this man ever even buy a door from anyone?????? Why does he not leave his contact info?, seems like an effort to help the public to make the right decision, but falls flat when he didn't leave his personal story or contact information.

    Affordable Iron Doors challange any company in the world to match our Quality, Service or Price!
