Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 8, 2008
In most houses, garage doors are the largest moving piece of equipment. If they're not working properly, then they can be inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst. A malfunctioning garage door can pose a risk not only to cars, but to kids and pets as well.
"If you have substandard repair, you're putting a lot at risk. For most homes, the garage door is the biggest moving piece of machinery," said Richard Brown, manager of America's Garage Door Service (http://www.americasgaragedoorservice.com). "Many people use a garage door as the primary way of entering their home, so quality of repair is absolutely vital."
Brown offers some tips to help consumers choose a company to keep their garages in top shape.
"If you're not careful in choosing a garage door repair service, you could end up with somebody who will do the job incorrectly or will overcharge you," said Brown. "We've been called out several times to fix the work other companies have done."
Brown suggests finding a company that has been in business for a number of years. In the garage door repair industry, there's a high turnover rate, so many smaller companies may not be in business for very long. Even if they've given their customers warranties, if they're out of business they won't be able to follow through on them.
"You don't want to hire the guy who just started up the business this year and works out of his home," Brown said. "If a company's been around for a few years, then they must be doing something right. They have an established name."
Brown also advises consumers to get multiple estimates on a garage door repair, three at the very least. Of those three, people should choose the one in the middle, rather than the least or most expensive options. He also suggests checking with the Better Business Bureau to see how they rank the garage door repair services.
"It is possible to find a reputable company that will do the job correctly and won't overcharge you," said Brown. "Garage door repair isn't something you should skimp on. A faulty repair will end up costing you a lot more in the long run."
