Garage doors: Why you should work with an expert

Garage doors: Why you should work with an expert

If you’re thinking about replacing your garage door you’re likely aware that it’s not a purchase you’re going to make every three years, not even every ten years… A garage door is a significant investment, and a quality garage door with quality installation and regular maintenance should last upwards of 25 years.

To make sure you end up with a garage door that lasts, you need to work with a company that will be there for you before, during and after installation. A company that will advise you about the most important aspects of your purchase, such as:

A reputable company will send you several different quotes representing different options, and can even show you what these options will look like through a Design Centre tool like our own. Don’t forget to ask if you don’t understand something in the quote: They’re the experts, they will be able to explain.

A reputable company measures before setting a price

If a company provides you with a price before they’ve even seen your garage you shouldn’t trust them. Professionals will come out to your home to determine which kind of door you need, this also gives them the chance to see if there are any issues with your garage.

A reputable company will be a member of a professional association

More often than not, reputable companies are proud of their work and want to show it off. Being a member of a professional association provides companies with additional visibility and guarantees their performance by applying codes of conduct, and they wear this badge with pride. A good way to tell you’re working with an expert, is to work with a company that’s a member of either the International Door Association or the Canadian Door Institute.

You know you’re working with a reputable company when at the end of the installation they explain to you how to use the door and properly maintain it. Also, reputable companies tend to offer tune‑up services and emergency services, such as carrying replacement parts in stock for quick repairs.
