The Rising Cost of Garage Doors

June 20, 2010 5 comments

Many garage door manufacturers have already increased their prices this year.  It is obvious to expect the same from other manufacturers but we should all be prepared for further increases on top of that.

As the greedy mining and oil giants continue to push up prices of raw materials in turn the steel companies must pass this on to our garage door manufacturers.  Garage Door Systems after one price increase this year are already warning that another may be soon to come.

Whilst these price increases don’t mean that the recovery within our industry is going to grind to a halt, it’s fair to say that this combined with the coalition cuts in the public sector and the threat to pensions that BP has caused will not help our businesses.
