The garage door replacement process often starts with an at-home consultation with your prospective garage door provider. As an investment that will work to keep your family safe and secure for many years to come, you want to make sure that you choose to have your new door installed by a company you can trust.

Here’s what you should expect from your new garage door consultation with a reputable service provider.

Determining the Right Door Style for Your Home

During your new garage door consultation, the garage door company representative will work with you to recommend a style of garage door that will be the best fit based on your garage’s dimensions and requirements, your home’s overall aesthetic, and your personal preferences.

There are several garage door designs out there. Staple styles include carriage house for an upscale look, timeless traditional raised panel, and contemporary, which provides a statement-making modern feel, plus many other custom options that allow you to let your imagination run wild.

A Walk Through Your Options

Contemporary Carriage DoorBeyond providing aesthetic recommendations of what your new garage door will look like, the company rep should also take you through all of your options. Here’s what you can anticipate discussing:

  • Available garage door materials and each material’s unique benefits (Vinyl, steel, and wood are popular options.)
  • The type of opener you’d like to have installed (belt driven, chain driven, or screw driven)
  • Functional features such as insulation
  • Customization features, including accents and/or available colors
  • The warranty that the garage door services company provides

An Overview of the Installation Process

A qualified garage door company will be able to provide you with a high-level overview of the installation process and answer any of the questions you may have.

Make sure that the company offers certified, professional technicians who have extensive training and experience in garage door installation like Precision Door of Delaware’s team of expert technicians.

It’s also a good idea to see if the company provides maintenance plans or repair services to keep your door running its best after it’s installed.
