If you’ve found yourself in a position where you need to replace or repair your garage door, you’ll want to make sure you hire a licensed, insured and reliable company.
The US garage door installation industry employs nearly 65,000 people—but not all of the companies, and not all of the contractors are alike!
If you’ve begun the process of hiring a garage door replacement and/or repair company, be sure to ask the following questions before you commit to having any work done.
- How long have you been in business? At Above the Rest Garage Door Repair we have more than 17 years of experience in repairing and replacing garage doors in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. We’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau and we are a licensed and insured garage door service provider. When it comes to hiring a company to help you with this type of repair, experience matters. You should never, ever work with a fly-by-night contractor.
- Are you licensed, bonded and insured? We have all heard the horror stories about homeowners who have hired unlicensed and/or uninsured contractors to help with home repairs or renovations. You should never, ever work with an unlicensed/ uninsured service provider! Not only does this open you up to possible liability should someone be injured, there are no guarantees that the work will be completed on time, on budget or if the work will be completed at all.
- Can you provide me a list of references? A reputable Colorado Springs garage door repair company will have no problems with providing you a list of references. The best endorsement a company can get is from a prior client. If the contractor you’re speaking with isn’t able to provide you with references, or they keep skirting the question, buyer beware! This is a big, big red flag. When you contact Above the Rest Garage Door Repair we’ll be more than happy to connect you with a long list of happy customers.
- Do you offer warranties and/or service plans? Just because a company offers a service plan or warranty, that doesn’t mean you’ll be fully covered in the event of a breakdown. If the service provider your speaking with says they provide these types of services, be sure to read the fine print. It’s always best to dig into the details before you commit to having any work done—this will ensure you’re being provided with the type of coverage you want.
