Ron Kiesel: A Door of Opportunity

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

NOVATO — After losing his livelihood to an economic downturn, Ron Kiesel was fortunate to come across a brand-new door of opportunity. “In the early 2000s, I was a project manager for a housing developer based in Mexico,” he recalls. “Living part-time in Mexico and part-time in Truckee, I had the best of both worlds. However, when the economy crashed in 2008, it all ended. The Mexican economy is very dependent on the U.S. economy, so, not surprisingly, the housing market took a big hit, which put me out of a job. While figuring out what to do next, I had a conversation with my good friend, Danny, who owned a successful fireplace door business in Southern California. He figured if his business model worked in SoCal, it could work up north as well. The next thing I knew, I was selling fireplace doors in the North Bay Area.”

Today, as president of Fireplace Door Guy LLC, Ron says his favorite part of his job is the creative possibilities. “I build all of my doors from scratch, so when it comes to design, it’s pretty much a blank canvas. That allows my customers to be as creative as they want with their designs. One time, a customer gave me a picture of the moon and stars, and I incorporated it into the door design. That keeps things interesting and makes my customers really happy.”

A resident of Novato (where he lives with his wife, Andrea), Ron spends his time outside of work on a variety of pastimes. “I have a ’99 Mustang Cobra convertible that I enjoy driving when the weather is nice,” he says. “I also have a condo in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I go down there every year for MLB Spring Training.”

In his life and career, Ron espouses the value of a positive mindset. “Wherever I am, I make the best of it,” he explains. “When I was in Mexico, I was happy there; when I was in Truckee, I was happy there; and now that I’m back in the Bay Area, I’m happy to be here doing what I’m doing. Life is full of transitions, some of which are planned, some of which are unexpected, but as long as you can roll with the changes and stay positive, you’ll be all right.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he were to retire tomorrow, Ron says he’d head to a tropical locale. “I like warm, tropical climates, so I’d probably take a vacation somewhere in the Pacific Islands—preferably somewhere I haven’t been yet, like Jamaica.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What was your first job?

A: Selling car parts.

Q: Music or talk radio?

A: Both. I listen to sports radio on KNBR in the morning and Pandora on my phone the rest of the time.

Q: What kinds of music do you like?

A: Mainly country and classic rock.

Q: What’s your favorite snack?

A: Sun Chips.

Q: If you could time-travel, would you go to the past or the future?

A: I’d go back to the 1950s and ’60s. Things were so much simpler and easier back then. Sure, we have a lot more conveniences today, but things are also a lot more complicated. I miss the simpler times.

  • What To Ask References
    Learn About the Experiences of San Mateo County Fireplace Doors Company Clients

    It’s best to choose fireplace doors installers that are Diamond Certified because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can’t pass.

    If you want quality from fireplace door companies in San Mateo County and the greater Bay Area, including those in Daly City, San Mateo, Redwood City, South San Francisco, San Bruno and your area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company.

    Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies, including local fireplace doors providers. And you’ll never be fooled by fake reviews. That’s because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers who have hired these local contractors and have actual experience dealing with them and can attest to the quality of their work and services.

    If you can’t find Diamond Certified fireplace doors contractor within reach, you’ll have to do some research on your own. In that case, it’s wise to call references provided by your top candidates.

    Keep in mind, though, that references provided to clients by the contractors themselves are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That’s because most references given to customers by companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from their company’s entire customer database.

    So if you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the San Mateo County fireplace doors installers’ 10 most recent customers in La Honda, Loma Mar, Millbrae, Emerald Hills, Half Moon Bay, Palomar Park, Pescadero, Colma or your area. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied. Then call those clients and the questions you want answers to.

    Sample questions you may want to ask include these:

    1. Were you satisfied with the service from (San Mateo County fireplace door company)?
    2. What was the type and scope of job the fireplace door contractor did for you (new fireplace doors installation, custom fireplace doors, glass panel fireplace doors, fireplace spark screen installation, fireplace door repair, etc.)?
    3. Were they prompt and personable?
    4. Did the fireplace door installation expert explain to you the status of the work?
    5. Did they complete the installation or repair work on time?
    6. Were there unexpected costs? If so, what were they for and were they avoidable?
    7. Did the company charge extra to travel to your home if you live in a smaller San Mateo County town such as Broadmoor Village, Atherton, El Granada, Moss Beach, Portola Valley, San Carlos, Princeton by the Sea, Sharp Park?
    8. Did the fireplace door contractors clean up after finishing the job?
    9. Would you recommend their services to friends or family?
    10. Would you hire this company again?
    11. Is there anything you wish you would have known before hiring this company to install new fireplace doors/repair your fireplace doors/replace your fireplace doors?

  • How To Work With
    Encourage the Best San Mateo County Fireplace Doors Companies to Help You

    In-demand contractors can afford to be selective about the jobs they take, and some of the busiest fireplace door installers in San Mateo County, including those serving South SF, Daly City, San Bruno, Menlo Park, Foster City, Burlingame, Redwood City, Pacifica and beyond, may prioritize clients that are easier to work with.

    So how can you be the kind of homeowner that the best fireplace door companies want to serve? See the tips below.

    • Show that you’re interested in good value and not just the lowest bid. Many people ask simply about price without discussing value. You can show your interest in quality by asking questions about products, repair methods, installation techniques, warrantees and lasting value rather than price alone.
    • Be upfront with the fireplace doors contractors if you’re interviewing several companies and accepting multiple bids for the job. They’ll be understanding and may work harder to earn your business. However, only entertain bids from carefully selected companies that offer quality work, and don’t accept more than three to five bids. Price shopping can be a turnoff to good contractors, many of whom are too busy to spend time and effort creating bids for customers who are looking for rock-bottom prices instead of quality work.
    • Tell your San Mateo County fireplace door company representative exactly what you want done and every specific direction or request you have. This will enable them to give you the most accurate bid possible and gives them insight into exactly what you want and expect. If they can’t provide what you need, it’s better to find out early in the process.
    • Interview and choose among local fireplace door contractors in San Mateo County. Most companies prefer to work within a smaller radius, as this allows them to provide faster service and repairs.

     

    What To Do Once You’ve Found a Company for New Fireplace Doors That Meets Your Needs
    After you’ve interviewed San Mateo County fireplace door companies and found the one that can best help you, ask for and sign a contract. Complete contracts should include details about the scope of the work, materials and products to be used, payment terms, the expected timeline for the job and any warranties and guarantees that will cover the work.

    Your local fireplace door contractor should provide the contract and allow you to read through it and ask any questions you may have before signing it. This agreement protects you, your property and the contractor, so it’s important that you understand all terms and exclusions. Never sign an incomplete or blank estimate or contract.

    If there are items you verbally agreed upon with your fireplace door installation contractor, write in those terms. These may include specific expectations and instructions, expected start and end dates, clauses that stipulate when the work must be completed, and other details.

    Tips for Successfully Working with Fireplace Doors Companies in San Mateo County

    • Have a list of specific repairs or installation work you need done, and write down any questions or concerns. This will ensure you get the service and answers you need.
    • Clear unnecessary items from the area where the fireplace door contractor will be working. This includes moving furniture that could impede their movements, decorations on the hearth or near the fire place, and cleaning out the fireplace itself.
    • Keep pets and children out of the area during the work.
    • Ask your fireplace door installation company representative what you can do to help make the work easier. There may be simple steps you can take to ease the job and help it go more smoothly.

Q: How do I make sure I get the correct size of fireplace doors?
A: If you’re ordering your own, you’ll want to carefully measure your fireplace opening to the specifications of the fireplace door manufacturer. If you’re buying fireplace doors from a local contractor or installer, they should be willing to do the measuring for you. This ensures that it’s done correctly and you get the right size of door. It’s smart to have the contractors do the measuring because any errors in measurement will be the fault of the fireplace door company and they’ll have to make it right. If you take the measurements and figure them wrong, you will likely be responsible for return fees, reorder fees, or be stuck with custom fireplace doors that don’t fit correctly.

Q: Are cheap fireplace doors a real value?
A: Like with most things, a too-low price can be an indication that the product or materials aren’t top quality. So while cheap fireplace doors might seem like a value at first, they can warp, rust, discolor, or not function correctly over time, and you’ll likely have to replace them sooner than quality fireplace doors. You’ll want to look for quality materials and labor over cheap prices; while the most expensive isn’t always the best, price can be an indicator of quality and value.

Q: Can I buy fireplace doors for my stone fireplace?
A: Yes, stone fireplaces can have fireplace doors. Talk with your local fireplace door provider about custom doors, including prefab fireplace doors or custom-fit glass doors.

Q: Can I buy fireplace doors that include screens?
A: Yes, depending on the style and brand of fireplace doors you want, you will find several options for screens. Some are mesh curtains that attach to rods running across the top of the fireplace while other fireplace screens are mesh doors that attach to the fireplace door frames. Screens and other fireplace mesh curtains and screen doors can prevent sparks and debris from escaping from the fireplace while its burning or add a decorative feature to the fireplace.

Q: Do I need a professional to install my new fireplace doors?
A: That depends on your goals, the type of fireplace you have, the type of fireplace doors you want, how handy you are, and similar factors. Prefabricated fireplace doors are possible for laypeople to install; however, they may not be custom looking or may not exactly fit your fireplace, which may not give you the look you want. Custom fireplace doors and fireplace glass usually require professional installation. Think about your needs and job specifics carefully before deciding whether you want to try installing your fireplace doors yourself or if a professional is a better fit for the job. The cost of installation usually doesn’t add much to the job in terms of price above the fireplace doors or fireplace glass itself, and the overall results may be better in terms of value and appearance.
