One other thing to consider is this; who will replace and install your new garage door? It is NOT a job for a do-it-yourselfer. Not only are garage doors extremely heavy, the spring system that accompanies it is under immense pressure. One wrong move and the entire door system can come crashing down upon you. There are too many stories to count of serious injury and death occurring in these situations. Be smart. Hire a professional

Hiring A Professional: What You Must Ask.

  1. Is the installer a member of a professional organization?
  2. How much experience does the installer have?
  3. How long has the company been in business?
  4. Does the dealer have satisfied customers verified by positive reviews?
  5. What type of insurance coverage does the dealer have? Ask for their certificate.
  6. Does the dealer comply with codes and regulations? How?

Don’t be afraid to call two or three installers before making your decision. Garage door installation and replacement is a difficult task. Be sure you’re hiring someone reputable.
