Of course, you want to find a garage door professional with a solid reputation. But it’s also a smart idea to find out if they also offer a warranty and stand by their work. Here are some tips for when you are shopping around for a garage door professional.
1. Is the Dealer Reputable?Look for service from a dealer that has positive reviews, fair prices and excellent customer service. Visit their website and find customer reviews online to get an idea of what kind of company you may be dealing with. Ask for references from projects done in your neighborhood. Are their sales representatives knowledgeable and courteous? Do they have excellent customer service? and always see if they are listed on home stars and what kind of reviews they have.
2. Experience MattersWhen you are shopping around for a garage door, you will want to pay attention to how long the dealer has been in business in your area.
Different areas have different environmental factors, which will affect garage doors differently. Having an experienced company with the knowledge of what will work and what won’t is important. Being able to understand your needs and take into consideration your budget is also a manner to judge a dealer.

Realtors agree that curb appeal is worth the investment
You only get one chance to make a first impression. By the time they knock on your door, buyers have already formed an opinion of your home’s worth. If you want to impress them and give your home value a boost, then start with the front of the house. No matter what your budget or the state of the housing market, upgrading your Garage Doors can make a difference.
Your garage door is the single largest moving part on a home and, because it often faces the street, it plays a large part in your homes’ overall appearance. Curb appeal is a critical factor in selling a home. If a prospective buyer doesn’t like the view from the street, chances are they won’t waste time going inside.
A survey conducted found that replacing the entry and garage doors on a typical 2,500-square-foot home was worth an additional $16,000.
Did you know?
The average price for a new garage door ranges from $800 to $5,000 depending on the size of the door and the material it’s made from. The most popular look in garage doors right now is the carriage-house style door. The doors look like old-fashioned swing-out doors but function like modern roll-up doors with an electric garage door opener. The choices for design, color and materials are virtually endless. So when you think of the investment you will 100% get that returned on the purchase price.
