Making It Last
By Olivia Trusdale

“Would you like to add a protection plan for $19.99?” Ugh! No! Maybe? Do I really need it? 

So many (already expensive) products like to offer even more expensive warranties or protection plans. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been through this scenario both ways. (And here’s a hint: neither of them works very well!) 

With some products, we’ve gone ahead and paid for the assurance. The product is completely fine… until the warranty runs out. Often, it breaks down just a few months after the protection plan expires. And some items pretty much seem to be actually designed to last only as long as the warranty! That way, almost as soon as it ends, the goods are no longer valid; and the buyer is forced to make a new purchase from the provider. And on and on the cycle goes. #plannedobsolescence?

Of course, then the opposite is somehow also true. If you don’t buy the plan, the product still breaks down quickly! (Sometimes even faster than if you’d bought the warranty! ARGH!) 

There is always the fulfillment of that old adage by Louis Pasteur: “Chance favors the prepared mind.” Or in this case, the prepared consumer. I can’t tell you how many times my family (including myself) has opted out of purchasing a warranty of some sort… and promptly broken the item (or had it malfunction in some other capacity).

So, what if there were a place where you didn’t have to worry about paying for an expensive protection plan, but you also weren’t concerned that your product would immediately fail?

 That’s where your friends at Team Perka can help! 

Our frames are guaranteed with a FIFTY-YEAR warranty! (Working towards lifetime too…)

And while it might cost a tad bit extra up front, not from excess profit either, the extra attention to durable quality, workmanship, service and design integrity is certain to prove a worthwhile investment and a S.A.F.E.R. return too!

 Of course, we are somewhat different from most other companies, so we don’t engineer our frames to wear out or even BREAK as soon as a warranty might expire. 

Perka Steel Frames are designed to be strong and durable, and flexible and resilient through it all; the “planned protection” is our way of assuring you that won’t be left in the lurch should anything happen to your building. 

We want to shield you from financial storms as much as your building will protect you from heavy rain, unforgiving winds, pummeling hail, freak snow, sleet, and all the rest of the “elements” mother nature can whip up in a frenzy.

And if our buildings can endure and be resilient to getting back in the game quickly – how much value can that give back to our environmental needs – our Peace of Mind – to our SAFETY!?

If this sounds like something that resonates with you, feel free to browse through our website or our Facebook Page and check out the kinds of frames and designs we offer. 

If you don’t see one that suits your taste, our buildings are customizable; you can tweak portions of an existing design or create a brand-new style. Our in house design/detailers can virtually draw up anything you can dream up!

Are you ready? Let’s get started! We can ensure that your building is made to last so that, in turn, your happiness with it can be lasting, too!
