If you live in the greater Houston area, you have your pick of several great garage door repair technicians to handle your garage door repair needs.
So how do you pick “the best one” or avoid working with a technician that will over charge and under perform?
Below are 3 things you should look for in a garage door technician or garage door repair company.
#1: The Right Training and Experience
Ensure whatever technician or company you choose has the right training. Feel free to ask for their license, if they are bonded, what experience they have, for customer reviews, and more. This is advice for every service provider you hire!
Remember, garage doors have many complicated mechanisms working together. You need to ensure you hire someone with experience to handle and diagnose your garage door problems.
#2: Good Reviews
Do your research on 3rd party independent reviews on any technician or company you pick!
Yelp, Facebook, and Google are great places to start. Also just googling the name of the company can show any good or bad info on the company. These sites don’t allow removal of bad reviews, and have filtering mechanisms in place to disallow fake reviews. So you know you are reading the facts when you see the varied experiences of each company.
You’ll easily get an idea of the good or bad work a company does, and see a theme through the reviews. This can help you make an informed decision!
#3: Compare Rates
The best garage door technician is not always the cheapest, but not necessarily the most expensive either.
It’s always a good idea to get at least 2-3 quotes for a job. This will help you see the average cost, and also note a company that might be overcharging. You can combine this information along with you research of the company and their reviews to make the best choice.
