Taking up more than 30 percent of a home’s curb appeal, and weighing 150 pounds or more, the garage door is no ordinary door. That is why when it comes to something as serious as your home’s garage door, you don’t want to risk hiring the wrong company to maintain, repair or replace it. You should also avoid doing any of the work yourself.
Here is what to look for in a garage door professional.
Do Your Research
Any time you’re planning to invest money in improving your home, it’s smart to ask your friends, family and neighbors for recommendations. A positive referral or warning can help you in your search for a reputable company. It’s also a good idea to study the company’s website, BBB ratings, and Yelp reviews. Additionally, you’ll want to contact the company directly, asking certain questions to learn more about their expertise.
Here are some questions to ask.
- Are they licensed?
- Do they have insurance?
- What brands do they use?
- How do they communicate with you?
- Do they have any references they can provide?
Always Get Multiple Bids
Get multiple – at least three – written bids before hiring a service company. A reputable company should have no problem providing a complete price quote including labor and equipment, along with information about any limited warranties on labor, parts or equipment. Be wary of going with the lowest priced bid. The cheapest option is not always the best option.
