Chosing Garage Door Vendors

When it is time for that new residential or commercial garage door, choosing the garage door vendors from whom to get an estimate can be a daunting task. Garage doors are a big business today, especially when it comes to the security issues that homes and businesses share. Garage doors come in so many styles, sizes and materials that it is hard to know where to begin your search. You must also consider what type of door would be most useful for the particular space that it must protect.

Before you begin your search, make a list of the features you want. Measure the size of then opening that you need to fill. Decide on a color or colors that you would be willing to consider. List the materials that you would like the door to be made of; wood, metal etc. Think about what type of security and access you want; remote, push button, keyless etc. Do you want a monitoring system? Do you want an insulated door? Should it have windows or a small access door? Do you want the door to roll, open to the side or would you prefer a roll-up door?
Once you have an idea what you need or want, it may be a little easier to find the right vendor to provide it. Go online and use search terms that will point to the type of door that you require. Browse the offerings and see what they have to offer. Many vendors listed will be local companies, so one way to search is by your location. Local vendors should probably be visited in person. It is so much easier to choose when you can see actual samples instead of photos and talk to a live person about your specific needs.

Most garage door vendors today have designers on staff that will help you to make the new door an integral part of the building in which it will be installed. If you are not sure what you want, most vendors will give you a free on-site estimate and a design layout to approve, before you spend any money. The designers are also expert at planning a door installation that will fit the style and design of a new construction dwelling or commercial building. They can also advise you on the type and appropriateness of different garage doors in relation to the building and the purpose for which it will be used.

The next step is to decide if you will be installing the door yourself, having the vendor install it or if you will be hiring a contractor to do the installation. It is usually best to go with the vendor’s installation team unless you are involved in a new construction. The vendor’s team knows their products and will be quicker, more thorough and more efficient because they have to back up whatever warranty that you receive. Most reputable vendors also offer continuing service for their products for either a specified time, or on a contract basis.
