If you're in the process of building a new home or renovating your existing one, you'll be dealing with many different contractors and companies for various parts of the house – including the garage door.

When choosing the best garage door company for the job, it’s important to consider a number of factors, including reputation, experience, craftsmanship and quality of materials.

Today, we’ll guide you through some of these key factors, to help you in choosing a company that will suit you and your needs.

Experience and Reputation

Experience in the industry and a good reputation are still the best key indicators of a company, particularly in construction and manufacturing.

Ask neighbours or friends for recommendations on garage door retailers, or find out how long local companies have been in business. You can also browse testimonials on company websites to get real feedback from real clients, who have hopefully been happy with their product and service.

Some garage door companies take you right through the process – from design to installation, right through to servicing and repairs – making them true garage door specialists. Others simply work out of their own garages providing what looks like a better deal. Unfortunately, these providers have no warranty and often they have no accountability when things go wrong. Be sure to find the specialists in your area.

Quality of Materials and Workmanship

View examples of finished doors on company websites, visit their showroom, or even better – book an appointment with a sales representative at your home to discuss the quality of materials used.

A good garage door company will happily send a salesperson to your home to discuss your needs, show you options from available products, and measure your existing door.

Garage doors should be made from strong, durable timber, aluminium or steel for maximum security and protection against the elements.

The design, manufacturing and installation of garage doors require professional tradespeople who are qualified specifically in that area. Look for high quality, precision engineering that will provide you with smooth-gliding, quiet and easy to operate doors that will work as you expect – every time.

A Wide Range of Garage Door Styles and Finishes

A specialist garage door company will be able to offer you a wide variety of materials, style and finishes, to best suit your home’s unique aesthetic.

Popular materials for garage doors include aluminium, Colorbond or western red cedar, in numerous styles and finishes.
