Ask More Questions. Go Ahead.

“Asking questions is fundamental to successful communication, and gathering information as a product of asking questions is a basic human activity.”

Here’s a great blog post we stumbled across recently. Certainly merited reposting. It’s excellent advice for young people looking for work in the real world, seeking “real jobs,” and, really, for all of us. Since when did it become a sign of weakness to ask questions? Maybe if we asked more questions, we wouldn’t be in the state we are in right now–personally, professionally, politically, financially, nationally. It applies on all levels. Ask more questions.  We do everyday. We need to know who our customer is, what their project is and what their overall plan is. It’s crucial to our design work. What are the dimensions? What style are you looking for? Traditional? Modern? Craftsman? What thickness? How do you plan on using this product? Where is it going?

Asking questions is a form of basic communication. So communicate. Speak to people. Lift your heads up from those computer and phone screens and speak to people. Show them you care about their work or what they are doing.

There are no stupid questions

Bob Borson —  May 23, 2016

Some questions, as soon as I become aware of them, sit in the front of my brain and simply won’t go away until I do something about them. In this case, the question I have been thinking about for the last several weeks is actually about asking questions.

Why is it that people don’t seem to know how to ask questions anymore…. http://www.lifeofanarchitect.com/there-are-no-stupid-questions/

    I’d like to know how much your spandrels cost per running foot.

    • Hi Faith–
      Thank you for your question. We have several variables involved in the pricing of our spandrels to include height and whether or not you want end brackets. In addition, the different design styles have slightly different pricing. But, to give you an idea, they start at $50. The best thing do is go to our website, choose your style, your height, bracket option and enter your total length. It will generate a price for you. http://www.durabrac.com/Porch-Spandrel/ Please email mikec@durabrac.com if you have additional questions or give us a call at 850-433-4981.
