A bad garage door repair or garage door installation job can cost you way more in the long run than hiring the right company the first time. It should be a given that hiring a licensed, bonded and insured garage door company is the right way to hire a service professional.
Make sure to always check 3rd party reviews as well, to help make the right decision. Yelp, Google and Facebook are all great options.
Many clients of ours first hire a handyman or similar to fix their garage door issues. In many cases, this is a recipe for diaster. While a handyman might be able to lube your garage door and tighten hardware, unless they have specific and extensive experience in garage door repair, they might not do the right job. Repairing your garage door is a serious thing, a garage door not installed properly can fall and harm a person or your property!
A great example of this is the adjustment of force on a garage door opener, or on springs and cables. You MUST understand how all of these moving aprts work together to set this correctly so no one gets hurts and your door isn’t damaged.
We have done enough repair work on jobs gone wrong more times than we can count!
Below are 3 reasons you should DEFINITELY hire a professional garage door company, if I haven’t convinced you already!
#1 You could be hiring thieves!
Not a joke! There are many thieves that pose as service professionals to gain access to your home and come back later to rob you!
#2 Unprofessional Companies Cost!
These are more “professional” thieves – promising a job well done and either leaving halfway through the job, installing incorrectly, or damaging your property!
#3 Accidents can happen!
Using an installer or someone with little to no garage door experience can lead to serious accidents. You’ll be lucky if just a part is damaged, but think about if your entire door comes crashing down – either on nothing (have to replace the door) or even worse, on your car, or a person or pet!
Don’t risk it!
A professional company that is bonded, licensed, insured and has great reviews will give you peace of mind!
