From our perspective, this is the global economy finding the best "commoditized" price and is useful. However, rather than fight against this downward spiral of cut-down blinds, we are positioning ourselves to find those apartment communities that do not want to be quite as low end with their finishes. There is a niche market of nicer apartments, in good locations, that need to make the apartment feel less like an apartment and more like a home. This is where our local fabricator can really make a difference. With a much nicer product, and much longer warranty, we can add value to owners of these upper end projects - with higher rents and less turnover - not to mention less repair costs.
If you would like to spruce up your apartment project with a much nicer product at a fair price - and support local workers - then contact us for a quote from your take offs.
