So your garage door isn’t working properly and you need it repaired or replaced, or maybe it’s just making a horrible racket and you want to get it checked out by professional garage door expert. Here are a few tips on what to look for in a San Diego garage door repair service.
If you are like me then you don’t spend more than $10 on any product or service without first reading the reviews. San Diego garage door repair services are no different. Do your homework, check the reviews of the company on Yelp and on Angie’s List to get a feel for other customers’ experiences with the service you are considering. Check whether the business is listed by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and find the company website so you are familiar with their warranties on parts/services and know if they offer any guarantees.
Repair vs. Replace
Have a candid conversation with a service manager of the San Diego company you are considering; ask the manager what the company policy is regarding repair vs. replacement. If the company approach does NOT place the highest priority on the safety of your property and family, go elsewhere in San Diego. Of course there is always the situation where repairs could be simple and replacement isn’t necessary, but never pay for a service situation that leads to saving a few bucks but puts your safety in jeopardy as a result.
Coupons & Special Offers
Some San Diego garage door repair companies offer coupons and special offers for first time customers and for specific services or parts. Research company websites to find offers that you might be eligible to take advantage of. If there are no offers on a company’s website, talk to a service manager and find out if they offer discounts for first time customers or for specific services or parts. Service companies love to make potentially loyal customers happy by saving them money.
Accreditation and Certifications
Garage door repair and new door installations are complicated projects that require experience and expertise. The Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) certifies technicians and trains experts in garage door repair. Check whether your local San Diego garage door service company employs technicians with IDEA certifications to ensure your project gets the most expert attention available.
So if you need a garage door repair service in San Diego, do your research and ask the right questions. Find out if the company you are considering has any special offers or coupons and maybe find a company that employs IDEA expert technicians. Nail these items and you’ll be a satisfied customer with a properly working garage door.
