Find the Best Garage Door Company With These 8 Tips

by | Jul 26, 2022 | Garage Door Repair Fort Lauderdale

An important part of home maintenance is your garage door. Unfortunately, it’s one of the most overlooked parts of the home because it’s used every day or, in some cases, not used often enough. When it stops working, it can be an inconvenience and a danger. With that, check out these tips to choose the best garage door company to service your garage door: 

1. Ask Family and Friends for Recommendations

The best place to start is to ask those who you trust. Friends, family, and neighbors are all good sources for referral information. They may have had a great experience with a nearby garage door company, and you can use their advice to get a couple of estimates and make a decision.

2. Check Online Reviews

Another place to check is online to see what other people have said and consider the companies you are considering. You can read stories, reviews, and customer feedback to see if there are issues you should know about.

3. Call a Few to Set Up Appointments to Compare Companies

Once you have a list of several companies to check out, set up appointments with each of them to discuss your garage door needs. Set up appointments for the same day and visit each one to compare and check out the services, quality, and pricing.

4. Get References

One of the best ways to check on a company’s quality and pricing is to get references. Ask the company for references that you can contact to find out if they did a good job and what the cost was. You can also find local companies with references or recommendations on their websites. In this way, you can be sure to get a company that will give you great service and an affordable price.

5. Check the Company’s Licenses and Insurance

Before choosing a company, ensure their license information is current and you can see proof of insurance for their work. These things will help you feel confident that the work will be done correctly and safely.

6. Review the Contract and Estimate Carefully

Check any estimates and contracts carefully and ensure all the work you need is on the list. Also, look for hidden charges you may have missed. Check that the times on the estimate match the times on the contract, so there are no misunderstandings.

7. Review the Warranty on any Work that is Done

Check the warranty on any work that is done to the garage door. Make sure it is in writing, covers all parts, and is in place for a period you feel is necessary. Look carefully at how long this warranty will be in place when it will end and exactly what is covered. You should also get a list of any parts that are not covered.

8. Ask the Company about their Guarantee on their Work

If the company guarantees their work, ask about the terms of the guarantee. This could be a great way to get a company to correct a problem or issue with the work done. While there is not always a guarantee on work, you can sometimes get one with a better company.

The Bottomline

Choosing a garage door company can be a difficult thing to do. However, with this list of tips, you should be able to make an educated decision on who to go with. Be sure to get several estimates, reference information, as well as a guarantee from the company you choose.

Steven showed up on time, did troubleshooting, then provided an estimate at no cost.
We scheduled a time for him to come back to replace with a chamberlain. He again showed up on time, and completed the work well ahead. He also provided preventive maintenance.

This is not the first time we’ve used this garage door repair company. Our first experience was when we first bought our house 3 years ago! He came out and fixed our problems and closed in the gaps around the garage doors due to my husband’s paranoia about rodents…

Logan is Awesome!  Great work, courteous and on time.  I just needed to have a spring replaced on my door.  I had actually had one replaced on the other door by another company but they overcharged me.  I called Logan mid-morning and told him..

Nina, Fort Lauderdale, FL ( Review)

I have an old heavy door from the 50’s with a pretty unique arm & spring system which broke. Terrie was able to fabricate a new arm and reattach and the door has never worked smoother or quieter. Terrie was prompt, fair priced, came up with an ingenious…
