Homeowners take pride in their home and they know having the right contractors and technicians handle the maintenance and servicing is essential to keep their home looking its greatest for as long as possible. When deciding to have a new garage door installed or the one you currently have repaired, you’re going to want to choose the best garage door company so you know that you’re going to get quality work done at an affordable price and it’s going to enhance the beauty of your home.
Are they certified? Licensed?
As with any company, you’re going to want to make sure the garage door vendor you intend on hiring as the credentials to back up their work. Hiring a non-credited company puts you at risk for several factors that could easily be avoided by hiring the right company. Certified garage door companies will likely have years of experience and their technicians will be well experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to installing and repairing garage doors Atlanta GA. Letting anyone who’s not certified and experienced work on your home could end up being a costly mistake. If the job’s not done right, it could end up making you have to pay more in repairs in the long run. Certified technicians will know how to handle any problems their clients may experience with their garage doors so that the situation gets handled properly and effectively. Dan Watkins, CEO of All Four Seasons Garage Doors talks about the importance of a good installation, saying that a low quality garage door installed correctly will last LONGER than a high quality door installed incorrectly.
Are Their Prices Fair?
As with other factors, you should shop around before settling on one company to ensure that you’re getting a fair price. You don’t want to end up paying far more with one company when you could have gotten the same quality of work at a lesser value had you went with another one. You also don’t want to waste your time with a company who tries to persuade you into buying additional features you don’t want or repairing things that aren’t even broken. These companies are only out for money and in that kind of case, they care more about that than they do about their clients and the quality of their work. At the end of the day, you’re going to want the desired results along with a price you’re comfortable paying. There is a way to get quality work at a great price; you just have to shop around for it.
Another good lesson from our CEO Dan Watkins is to be aware of claims for “lowest price guarantee.” Don’t believe it; check it. Talking from his experience with the industry, Dan says that it is common for companies with the “low price guarantee” to be sales-oriented and try to make you buy more or repair things that aren’t broken. How else will they make money to cover up the “lowest price guarantee?”
Is Their Quality in Their Service?
While you want to get your service for a fair price that you can afford, you don’t want to exchange quality just for a lower price. That lower price being offered by one company isn’t going to give you the same quality results as another company whose rate may be a bit more, it isn’t also ideal to choose the company offering to do their work the cheapest. Certified technicians will know what they’re doing and take pride in their work so their clients can rest assured that they’re getting the best quality work. Garage doors can enhance a home’s exterior beauty and it’s essential to having quality work done to ensure that it does just that. Our advice is to look for FAIR, TRANSPARENT prices.
Are they local?
If you buy new garage doors, you know you can buy them directly from a manufacturer. But is the manufacturer going to send someone from Texas, let’s say, to Atlanta for a repair service? Of course not. What if you buy from Costco? Is Costco specialized in garage door repair? Of course not! Your best bet is to choose a local vendor who sells a BROAD range of garage doors from different manufacturers, who has been around for years, and can offer quick service when you need it.
If you find that a garage door company isn’t meeting your standards in even just one of the mentioned aspects, then it’s best to move on and find another company that will perform to the highest standards while also giving you a fair price. It’s a big investment and you want to it last long.
