How do I find the best garage door companies near me?

Start by searching our list of overhead door companies, then compare reviews and costs. After finding and contacting potential services:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Ask for recommendations from family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Select companies that are licensed, insured, and certified.
  • Read reviews and check out their previous work on HomeGuide, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Check state laws to see licensing requirements. In states where garage door installations are an unlicensed trade, ask more about their experience.
  • Ask if permits or door reinforcements are necessary to meet local building codes.
  • Ask for a full itemized estimate in writing.
  • Avoid making large payments upfront. Come up with a payment schedule for work completed.

Be sure the quote includes: on-site consultation before ordering the door, removing and disposing of the old door, reconnecting to the opener, resealing the door perimeter, permits, and cleaning up.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best garage door contractor in your area.
