With so many options of garage door companies in your area, it can be a daunting task to choose the right one. One of the best ways to find a reputable garage door company is to get recommendations from your friends and neighbors on who they use and why. Once you have a few good options, research the companies online, take a trip to their showrooms and have a sales representative stop by your home.  Before you choose, here are a few tips to consider when looking for a garage door partner.


When looking for a partner in garage doors, checking out the company’s experience level is a good place to start.  Check to see how long the company has been in business and what services they offer.  Look at customer reviews on sites like Google, Angie’s List or Yelp.  See what other people have to say and what types of experiences they have had with the company.

Fast, Reliable Service

There is nothing worse than having a broken garage door and no one there to help you fix it.  Choose a garage door company that will be there when things go wrong with fast, reliable service.  Many reputable garage door companies have 24-hour emergency service, but it is always best to check company policies and procedures while making your choice on the best garage door company for you and your family.

Look for a company that is family-owned and operated with service as a top priority.  Especially in Florida with hurricane season, it is important to have a company on your side that can make repairing your garage door as pain-free as possible.


Safety is a big concern when installing a garage door.  Make sure the company has the expertise on how to install your door, the proper maintenance schedule for your door, and practices company safety procedures when installing your door.  Proper door installation and maintenance is key to keeping you and your family safe.

Verify that they have the proper licenses and insurance as well.  If they give you a hard time about providing either, they may not be licensed or insured, which can be a safety concern.

Accredited Dealer

It is important when choosing a garage door company to look at their accreditations.  Why? Accredited companies go above and beyond the normal status quo of running a business.  They take pride in being leaders in their industry, have a commitment to quality and train their staff on new information and technology to stay ahead of the game.

Authorized Dealer

Have you researched and selected the best garage door to fit your home and are ready to buy? Choosing a local garage door company that is an authorized dealer of your specific garage door is a must.  When the company is an authorized dealer, it means they have the expertise to install your garage door and have the selection you are looking for.
