  • Customer Service Our Top Priority

    7/13/2010 12:00 AM

    The driving force behind how every Thompson Creek employee performs their job is the goal of total customer satisfaction. Being able to measure that satisfaction through dedicated surveying of every contact – whether they end up purchasing from us or not – gives us a very clear picture of where our strengths are and what areas we can target for improvement.  Customers are contacted by phone and email and asked to complete a detailed questionnaire.   We have built a method of survey results delivery into our internal systems.  Once a survey is completed, results are immediately delivered via email to key executives within the company. We also have a dedicated marketing staff member who reviews each survey in detail, forwarding them on to the proper department if follow up is needed.  The project manager contacts the customer within 24 hours for resolution and then reports the results back to marketing support with the resolution, which is entered into the database.  Management reviews the survey results on a regular basis.  All of this attention to each and every comment, even though not 100% of the problems can be solved, ensures that customers feel they have been heard.

  • Entry Doors Increase Curb Appeal

    7/7/2010 4:37 PM

    If just one door to your home is letting in a draft, you’re paying much more than you should in order to heat or cool your entire house. Even a fraction of an inch can create a costly (not to mention uncomfortable) draft as air seeps in and escapes out around all sides of the door—not just along the bottom.   For example, a mere 1/8” gap around your door causes the same energy loss as drilling a 5½” hole through it. It’s something you simply can’t ignore.  That’s why it’s important to choose doors that deliver air-tight comfort as well as beauty, security and value.   A custom-fit entry door is the easiest, most cost-effective way to dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal without going through the hassle and expense of major renovations. Thompson Creek offers the strongest, most energy-efficient doors in the industry.  They are custom-crafted to your specifications. They keep energy in – and unwanted drafts, noise and contaminants out.  You’ll enjoy the maximum energy efficiency a door can provide and save money year after year.  The same insulating technology that keeps the cold air out in winter also blocks smog and toxic fumes from vehicles outside or in your garage.

  • Beat the heat – Replace your windows in the summer

    7/6/2010 7:02 PM

    Now that the mid-Atlantic area is well into the dog days of summer, do some of your rooms feel like a sauna? A typical double-paned, clear-glass window allows approximately 75 percent of the sun’s heat into your home.  Are your windows keeping the heat out?   According to the U.S. Department of Energy, installing high-performance replacement windows will improve your home's energy performance. The benefits of added comfort and improved aesthetics and functionality may make the investment worth it to you. Many window technologies are available that are worth considering, including low-e glass.   Low-e stands for low-emissivity glass, which is a very thin coat of material on the glass to make it more efficient.  This is important when the weather is very hot and sunny.  Low-e coating helps reflect heat away from the surface, keeping unwanted heat out in the summer.  Low-e glass is the most cost-effective way to increase the efficiency of your windows.  It can also help reduce the amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation entering your home, reducing furniture and carpet fading.   If you have single-pane windows, installing new energy efficient windows can result in savings on your energy bills of up to 30%.

    David from Annandale, Virginia had the Thompson Creek Gutter System installed on his home because he didn’t want to worry about clogged gutters again.  Our gutter system keeps your feet on the ground so that you don’t become one of the 500,000 people treated in the United States for ladder-related injuries annually.  David said this about Thompson Creek, “Professional, courteous, displayed quality, delivered good product” and also “Demonstrated a quality product at a reasonable price.  Appreciate their focus on being a local company in the DC area.”
