4 Steps to Take When You Need Commercial Garage Door Repair

As a business owner, you already know how important it is for your building systems to work properly. From the roof to the HVAC system, to your commercial garage doors: every part of your commercial building contributes to the smooth functioning of your business.

A malfunctioning commercial garage door can impact your overall business efficiency and operations management. When you need commercial garage door repair, it’s important to hire the right professional, know how long you can expect repairs to take, and establish good communication with clients and staff.

Once the repairs have been made, it’s also important to keep your commercial garage door in good working order. In this article, we’ll go over the four steps you should take to repair and maintain your commercial garage doors in Oklahoma City.

1. Find a Commercial Garage Door Repair Professional

Finding the right professional is an important first step when your commercial garage door needs repair. Working with the right professional will ensure that the work is done right. Hire a garage door repair business with a solid reputation, good business practices, and well-trained professionals. When looking for a repair person or business, consider the following:

  • How long has the garage door repair contractor been in business?
  • Do they have a professional website?
  • Can they furnish references?
  • Can you find online reviews about their performance?

When calling professionals, ask about prices, but don’t assume the cheapest contractor is the best professional for your job. Repair people who undercut the competition may do so by cutting corners at the expense of their clients, or the quality of their work.

2. Establish a Timeline

Find out how long you can expect the repair to take. Some repairs take days or weeks to finish if parts need to be ordered, while other repairs can be finished in the same day. Establishing a timeline as soon as possible can help you make plans around the repair.

3. Communicate with Customers and Employees

In what way will your broken garage door impact your business? How will your customers be impacted? What will change for your staff? Will the broken garage door change your business hours? Will you be forced to take fewer orders, or lengthen delivery times? Will you have to cancel appointments?

Communicate with employees and staff in whatever ways possible. Newsletter articles to customers, signs for clients who show up without an appointment, verbal reminders, and phone recordings are all ways that you can communicate changes that may take place in your business before the repairs are finished.

4. Prevent Future Repair Problems

Prevention is best. By keeping your commercial garage door in good repair, you can avoid future breakdowns that could further impact your business.

  • Get regular tune-ups.
  • Inspect your commercial garage doors periodically.
  • Install a quality garage door when the time comes to replace.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
