Hydraulic vs. Bifold



Building Details


What People Are Asking



I am currently a sales manager in a overhead door business. Currently bifold cafe doors are increasingly becoming more popular. We substitute for full vision overhead doors and customers are generally happy with that. However, I am interested in possibly becoming a Schweiss Door dealer or adding a division to the company I work with. I am curious on the prices of these doors in comparison with the full vision overhead doors. The market where I do business isn't a market that will spend more than they have to. I would love to offer these types of doors, especially Schweiss Designer doors, if they are within the price of the ones I currently offer. Could you please send me a catalog with general pricing? I would also like some information as to how much the door blocks the top of the opening when open. I hear you lose no headroom with a bifold, how about a hydraulic door? Mainly because as an entrance door i can't have people banging their heads off it. I would need to know how large the opening needs to be so the doors folds up above the required 7' Thank You

basically i am a electronics engineer . i am intrested to doing work in your compay. in electronics related job. thanks


name is Tracy. Im 40 and after being in Rx retail for 15 yrs. I want to take my people and customer service skills to use. I have been working for vending company helping place machines in which I've been successful. But vending machines only get placed when it is brought to the owners attention and makes them unhappy we/current vendor. with all the faxes-mails, cold calls and walk ins I've done they just have to wait. the companies name is out there I did my job time to move on. I am inquiring about that sort of job you may need in my area and I want to work as a subcontractor. Meaning I work independently for you representing your company and services place to place asking to put my sticker on their door in case it needs repair. I can do all fax e-mail calls, as I have HOME OFFICE. I don't request benefits being you may only want my for 3 months which should be enough time to get your name out and get a lot of doors stickered. I won't do commission unless its draw commission because you won't see returns until a door breaks. I won't come after you for unemployment or be upset if you don't need me after 3 months. I had a job coach this summer he said rep. or account exec. in the field. im great with people fun friendly but always in a professional manor. This is how I will represent your company. I can dress up or down depending on targets. I have my own car and I must say everyone says this is what I should do. Why? because I do all the things owners don't want to. my friends say I should sale cars but the dealers want you to know or train you which is nice but I would rather be out or in contact with new people. I live in El Sob ante ca which is san Francisco east bay area Ca. I am available for east bay and north bay. I work approximate 32 hrs a week but when I represent someone I do it every where I go. ( this is the lowest according to labor statistics and enough to be happy) That is why I only charge 32hrs. My pay is sort of negotiable but this is more than fair for your company to get name out and to represented professionally. $430 per week check or cash I do my own taxes so 1099 is up to you. An extra $20 to make $450 per week this will make sure I have gas AND bridge fair if needed. if you want reciepts for your taxes I can do $400 but you pay for milege bridge and all necessities, (if 1099 it would be $450 wk) I just want to do something im good at and take care of my kid, by helping someone grow I grow too. I hope to own my own business someday but $ comes first. job is what I need. short term I worked lyres for someone else now I want to do MY work FOR someone else. .I can do this to help anyone build their business so if you know someone who needs someone like me, please refer me to them. I really appreciate your time and sincerely hope you will get back to me. Thank You SINCERELY, Tracy
