How To Choose a Garage Door Company

Is it time to upgrade the garage doors on your commercial or industrial facility? Do you need to repair or maintain an existing door? You’ll find no shortage of companies willing to compete for your business, so how can you be sure which one to choose? 

What to Look for in a Commercial Garage Door Company

A careful evaluation of the following factors can help you determine the best garage door product and service provider for your company’s needs. 


A reputable garage door company has a long and successful track record of providing excellent service throughout the local community. Start by checking out the online reviews provided by the customers of all the garage door companies near you. Are most of them positive, or do you find complaints in crucial areas like the quality and craftsmanship of their products or their commitment to meeting their customers’ needs?

You should also talk to other business owners about their experiences with the garage door companies in your area. Find out if they’re happy with the service and whether they would choose the garage door company again. 

Product Selection

When it comes to garage door requirements, no two businesses are alike. While a roll-up door might make sense for one company, another might benefit from a sectional unit. And if you’re a retailer, you’ll likely need a security grille to protect your storefront or selling space. 

Your garage door company should offer an array of products to optimize your selection possibilities. They should also represent garage door manufacturers known for producing high-quality doors featuring multiple material options. 

Available Services

While many companies will be happy to sell you a garage door, some fall short when it comes to installation and other essential support services. You’ll need to know what to look for in a garage door installer and determine whether it can also meet your maintenance and repair needs. 

Besides the service menu, you should also find out who will be doing the work — in-house technicians who are company employees or third-party contractors with questionable credentials. Ask if they’re available to provide after-hours emergency service as well. 

Warranty Coverage

The best garage door companies stand behind their work by offering comprehensive warranty protection to give you extra peace of mind. The warranties should cover materials and workmanship for the installation of brand-new products. Additional options should also be available for service and repair work.
