How to Find the Right Garage Door Company

As a homeowner, making educated decisions about renovations is a necessity. A new garage door is a smart investment for many reasons, but how do you ensure your investment is worthwhile? By choosing the right company to install (or repair) your garage door. Where's a good place to start? Well, if you're like most people, you will Google local garage door companies! That is a great first step, but you'll want to put more effort into your search for the best company to suit your garage door needs. Here are a few things to do:

Do Your Research 

The internet is your best friend in this scenario. You can look up reviews and testimonials about local garage door companies. If you conduct a Google search, look up local companies with the best Google reviews. You can also look on Facebook or other social media platforms for customer reviews and comments! Does the company you're researching have a good relationship with their customers? How many stars do they have? You can also look them up in the Better Business Bureau's database for insight on their work ethic. While this isn't sure-fire proof that the company's work will be outstanding, it's a great start to decide who you want to contact.

Make sure the company you are researching has the right code compliances and insurance coverage. Federal, state and local codes must all be followed -- ask the company about the regulations for your area. Does the provider have a Certificate of Insurance? If the company uses subcontractors that aren't insured, you could be responsible for any injuries that occur. Make sure you know who and what is insured before starting any project. 

Vet Your Prospects

Once you whittle your prospects down to a couple, put them through the ringer. Do they have a portfolio you can check out? A good garage door company should have access to previous work on their website. The company should provide information about the products and brands they offer. What does their initial consultation entail? If you find misleading or inconsistent information, they might not be the company for you. Make some calls and ask questions that you have! You should enjoy your experience from start to finish, and if not -- why bother?
