Looking for Security Doors, Gates, Iron Art? The Showroom Makes a Big Difference!

It seems that the Internet is taking over almost every aspect of our lives, especially the way we make purchases.  But research shows that 72% of consumers still prefer to go to a store so that they can view a product before they purchase it.  There is just something about being able to see it, touch it, and take measurements of it that makes a consumer feel more comfortable about shelling out hard-earned money for a major purchase.  This is even more the case when the purchase is a major feature to your home such as security screen doors, gates, iron railing and more.  So what can a showroom provide in your purchasing experience?  The answer may surprise you.


At First Impression, we know and understand that this is a major purchase for your home.  As such, when you walk through our doors you are greeted by a friendly, smiling design consultant who is ready to help walk you through making this major decision.  After making you nice and comfortable with a cold beverage, your consultant will ask questions to determine what you are looking for and what will work best for your situation.  He or she will try to find out as much as possible about your home setting including what type of home you have, do you have children or pets, and the like.  All of these questions are valuable in determining what product is best for you.  For example, if you own pets, the problem of them scratching on your screen door will have to be taken into consideration as will the issue of children playing with and potentially damaging the screen.  Also, where you live can be a factor as certain subdivisions have covenants which require color schemes and standards that must be followed for equipment placement.  First Impression has been in business since 1995 and in those 18 years they have learned how to navigate all of the requirements placed by the variety of local homeowner’s associations.

First Impression doesn’t just have a great factory setting to manufacture our products.  We also have five convenient showroom locations that allow these outstanding products to be displayed in real life for the consumers.  Here, you can see and touch the goods you are considering having installed in your home and feel how well constructed it is.  You can also get a better idea of color and texture choices for these products by seeing them firsthand.  The high quality products offered at First Impression are displayed in a number of ways so you can feel confident you are getting exactly what you want and feel good about this major investment in your home.  Besides our highly trained and skilled design consultants and quality models, we also have iPads available for your use in store.  With these tablets, you can select from a larger number of products, choose your favorites, and save them on the iPad so that you can discuss them later with a consultant.  These iPads even let you build custom designs based on several images of our products you may like.

With such inviting showroom environments and design consultants available to help seven days a week, it is hard to see how you can make a confident decision without a visit to our one of our studios!
