Questions to Ask a Potential Garage Door Repairman

Has your garage remote quit working? Does the door stop opening before reaching overhead? Then you are in need of a repairman. There will probably be multiple companies vying for your business. How do you choose when there are so many options? Allow the following questions to guide you to the right decision.

  • Do they specialize in residential or commercial repairs?
    Many people do not realize that garage doors for houses are made different than those for businesses. Most residential doors are focused on being appealing to the eye, while the commercial type is made with durability in mind. Although they both serve the same function, it is helpful to have someone on the job that knows the distinction between the two.

  • Are they qualified to work on any type of garage door?
    There are actually several types of garage entries on the market right now. The most common is a sectional door, which is created by connecting several panels with hinges. Each kind of door rests overhead when open, but they get there in different ways. A proper maintenance man will know if you have an extension spring or torsion spring counterbalance system, and how to fix either one.

  • Do they currently hold a license in electric wiring?
    Nowadays, most garages are wired with lights, remotes, and alarms. If this is the part of the system that is malfunctioning, you need to be sure the person you hire is taking care of his or her legal responsibilities. You should also check to see if they are properly insured. That way, in case they make a mistake that makes the situation worse, their policy will cover the cost of correcting the error.

    If you are good with your hands and like working with mechanical systems, consider becoming a contractor who specializes in garages. You could work on residential and commercial properties. You might do everything including design, renovation and simple repairs.

    You might respond to a call from someone whose home garage door won’t open. Or maybe their remote needs to be replaced. You will look at their overhead springs and automatic lift mechanisms to identify the problem. You could offer to fix their hinges or even install a new door.

    If you are designing a garage for a company, you will have to make a plan with them to meet their needs. If this garage will be storing valuables important to their business, you might construct a metal door, such as one made out of steel. You might also offer to install an alarm or build a separate carport.

    To become a contractor, you should have a background in engineering or construction, with special training building and repairing garages. In training, you will learn about the overhead springs and control panels you will be working with. They will teach you everything from using a remote to open the door, to remodeling an entire structure. You should also be comfortable with manual labor, as you will be working a lot with your hands.

    If you have a background in finance or know a business consultant, you can work to keep your overhead costs low and pass these savings on to your customers. This will help you build a reputation as an affordable, reputable contractor and help you build your business.

    A career as a contractor who repairs and renovates garages could be lasting and lucrative.
