There are many professions involved in various aspects of doors, from sales and delivery to repair and installation. Door installation professionals, also called contractors, can install all types of residential and commercial doors, from French to patio to shower. Some specialize in garage door installation, which involves more heavy duty materials along with remote control features.
Home improvement wholesalers sell in bulk to those contractors, who frequently need lots of equipment and supplies. Retailers sell doors such as front, pocket, and wood to customers on a daily basis, often boasting sales or specials. Customers can come in to the store, get assistance from a sales associate as to the best door for their needs, whether front entryway, sliding, or bifold, and make a purchase. The store may have the requested cabinet or closet door in stock, or it may have to be special ordered. In this case, the store will provide delivery of the panel or screen door to the customer’s home.
Home improvement stores also sell the necessary accessories, such as knockers, screening, knobs, locks, and glass inserts. Customers can also purchase interior and exterior doors online as well, specifying delivery and tracking their package virtually.
Locksmiths can fix, install, or maintain locks. Garage door installation technicians and construction contractors can install sliding, French, and other types of entryways. You may also find specialty contractors who offer work on areas like stained glass or wood working, which can complement front or French doors nicely.
Customers can call the business directly to get rates, availability, installation costs, and additional services, such as weatherproofing for storm doors.
