Do you offer financing or payment plans?

No. 

We require a 50% deposit to reserve your place on our job board, and the balance is due upon completion of the project.  

If you are in the planning stages of your project and need help with financing, see if you qualify for a zero interest credit card. Go to a trusted website and find a card that fits your needs. If you have good credit, you can usually find cards with 0% interest for a year or more. We accept Visa and MasterCard.

What is your lead time? Can you rush my job?

We are privileged to have a great following of wonderful customers, and we are proud to be in high demand. 

Our average lead time during the summer is approximately 10-12 weeks. At any given time, we can have up to 70 jobs on our boards. Your place in our line is determined by the date you sign your contract and make your deposit. Jobs are made and installed in chronological order.

We encourage you to not let a long lead time scare you off, though. Our products are worth the wait! Many people wait for months or years to start on a project but get discouraged at the thought of waiting a few more weeks. It simply doesn't make sense to go with an inferior product just because you can get it quicker. 

Rush jobs will only be taken at our discretion depending on our schedule, and there is a fee for rush jobs.

I lost my keys! Can you change my locks?

The best option is to call a trusted lock smith. A good locksmith will be able to re-key your existing security door lock (and any other locks you need re-keyed) and provide as many new keys as you need. 

We recommend Keith with Son of Affordable Locksmith Service. (719) 242-3402

He has serviced our doors for many years and is familiar with our lock system. 

If you are unsure of the best course of action, call us (719-542-3641) and let us know the situation. We will steer you in the best direction. 

Can I leave my key in the door?

Please don't!

Although it can provide some convenience, your door is not a security door if you leave your key in the lock where it could be easily accessed by the wrong person. 

We recommend getting in a good habit of keeping your deadbolt locked and always having your key ring in a safe and easily accessible (to you) location. In addition to knowing where your personal key ring is at all times, we highly recommend designating a secure place to store an emergency spare key. Make sure everyone living in your house knows where it is.

Are your doors maintenance-free?

Our doors are made to last a lifetime, but they are by no means maintenance-free. In order to keep them in good working condition, some routine maintenance must be done. Additionally, some components will simply wear out over time and need to be replaced. Since we are a local company and we make the doors in-house, those kinds of repairs don't need to turn into a headache for you. We are your one-stop shop for everything involving your Aztec door.

Door Maintenance

Hinges should be oiled at least once per year. Use a penetrating oil and make sure to lubricate all three hinges well. This will prevent the bushings from wearing out prematurely. A good spray lubricant makes this job very quick and easy. Simply spray each bushing on all three hinges. Open and close your door several times to help it work its way into the hinge, and wipe up an excess with a clean rag. We do not recommend graphite.

Keep the finish of your door in good shape by wiping it down it with a soft, damp cloth when it gets dirty. This will help prevent scratches on the finish. Do not use harsh cleaners, power washers, or any kind of abrasive objects. If a damp cloth is not sufficient, use a car shampoo or other cleaner that is safe for painted surfaces.

Touch up paint is usually provided at the time of installation. Keep it in a safe spot and touch up chips as they happen to keep the finish in top condition.

If your door is in full sun for much of the day, a product like Armor All or another automotive grade wax can go a long way in protecting the finish and extending the life of the paint. 

Keep water off your door to the extent possible. For example, do not allow your sprinklers to soak your door.

Be mindful to not let hard or sharp objects make impact with your door. Keys are usually the suspect for most chips and scratches. Try to not let them hit the door as you lock and unlock it.

The closer on your door can be affected by changes in temperature as well as a change in pressure in your house, for instance, having the air conditioning running. The closer can easily be adjusted if you find that your door is closing fast or slow. It is not uncommon to have to adjust it a couple time throughout the year. All you need is a screw driver. There is a screw on the end of the cylinder that controls the rate at which the air is released. Adjust the screw a little at a time, and test it as you go until you have it at the desired setting.
