Door Replacement from Grand Mark Solutions
Installing doors in new construction is one thing; replacing existing doors in established homes can represent significant challenges. Designed specifically to address those challenges, Grand Mark Solutions has introduced a franchise system that provides door replacement services to homeowners, which the company believes represents a large untapped market.
At the heart of the system is Grand Mark Solutions’ proprietary technology which is engineered to quickly and accurately capture door jamb dimensions, and the placement of the lockets and hinges. Using the data, its vendor network custom mills the new door on a CNC machine for each opening, and applies professional-grade paint. Since the new door was made to fit, the franchisee’s team can install the new door in a matter of minutes. The new door slides right into the existing hinge pockets and shuts with an even reveal, or gap, around the door, even if the existing door jamb was severely bowed. According to the company, the process translates into lower labor costs and big efficiencies.
Plus, the technology is said to be so accurate that it requires no onsite door cutting or demolition, which has enabled the company to obtain a letter from the EPA that excludes its proprietary process from lead law compliance. This clears a significant hurdle faced by many in the home remodeling industry.
