Hello everyone, I am writing this as an obligated consumer in our free market economy to warn all others, so that they do not make the same MISTAKE as i have made in the past. I decided to choose affordable iron doors as the company where i would purchase my iron door. Gary Duncan, the lying, ### owner, tempted me with his guarantees, and his extremely low prices. I was promised an iron door within 8 weeks, i am on a tight schedule as all construction is so the framing is up and there is no door, only a gaping hole, with plywood! I gave Gary Duncan a 50% deposit, in good faith, however i have not heard from him for about three weeks now, and my door is overdue, I only once received what seemed to be an automated e-mail response, saying that he is sorry and is doing all that he can in order to keep me happy. But he is lying i am not happy nor am i satisfied i am going to lose my deposit and whats worse is that i have lost all this time dealing with that liar... Be forewarned Gary is a liar and affordable iron doors is a scam, he only takes your deposit and you are left with only unanswered questions. I want to seriously warn everyone who thinks it is a good idea to be a customer at affordable iron doors. His website is full of lies, and i should have been smarter but i wasn't. It goes to show you that when you want to save you end up paying more than you had intended to in the first place, especially with scam companies like affordable iron doors.
If this helps one person and keeps them from doing business with this fraudulent, dishonest, immoral person it will be worth my time.
My husband and I are building a custom home. We decided to use Affordable Iron Door for our front door based on a great price point and a guarantee for the owner, Gary Duncan, that our door would be delivered within 8 weeks or it was free. We put a 50% deposit down and were anxiously awaiting an update on status for our door. At the 7 week mark not a word from Gary. We inquired and were told that we had not ordered the door until 2 weeks prior? Hummm...our credit card was charged the day we placed the order giving us proof of order date, 7 weeks prior to the call. At the 10 week mark our home is through frame inspection and now has to be boarded up since Gary has not followed through on his promised delivery. We had no communication from Gary until another call is placed by my husband. At this point we get another story. Now our door was involved in the floods in China. Completely understandable if he had called us or emailed us or sent a sky writer...but he did not. The bottom line is through the 13+ weeks of dealing with Gary and his company we were never given accurate information. We have cancelled our order and have now had to go back to our credit card company to try to recoup the initial deposit. Gary has caused extensive delays and a much greater overall expense
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.
