Hiring a contractor can be a pain the you-know-where– especially if you haven’t needed to hire this type of service provider in the past.
Sure, you understand the importance of getting several bids and checking references, but when it comes to hiring a garage door repairman in Colorado Springs, there are several other things you’ll want to find out.
Below you’ll find our top three things we feel you should ask potential candidates before you commit to having work done.
What’s broken and what steps need to be taken to fix the problem?
First, if you think you have a problem with your Colorado Springs garage door system, please don’t try to fix it yourself. The average garage door can weigh in the hundreds of pounds, and if you don’t know what you’re doing you run the risk of knocking the door off its tracks. When you start interviewing repair companies, be sure to ask them what the problem is, how the problem started and what steps they’ll need to take to fix it.
What will the repair cost be, and can you provide me with a written estimate?
If something in your home needs to be repaired, it’s always a good idea to get a written estimate. The cost to fix your garage door is going to depend on several things. First, what’s broken? Remember- minor repairs will cost less to fix than major repairs. In some cases, you may be looking at an out-of-pocket cost that’s around $150, but if the issue is significant, you may need to pay $600. If the repair cost is very high be sure to ask the technicians about the pros and cons of installing a new system. If you can install something new at a comparable cost, that may be your best solution.
How long will the repair take?
If the part can be obtained easily, you may be able to have your garage door fixed that same day, in just a few hours. If it has to be ordered, this will obviously delay the repair timeline. Be sure to get as much information from the technician as you can, so you can plan your time at home accordingly.
