Need New Garage Door Installation? 4 Steps to Get Started

Older garage doors don’t perform as well as newer models. If your garage door is older and in need of replacement, get started today! The steps to new garage door installation aren’t as cumbersome or complicated as you might imagine. Below are the four steps we recommend for getting a new garage door installed as soon as possible.

1. Know Your Options

Garage door styles have changed a lot in the last several years. Study the options available to decide which type is best for your home. Modern garage door styles include:

  • Ultra-modern fogged glass and aluminum frame.
  • Carriage style garage door with multi-paned windows.
  • Wooden sectional doors with decorative hinges.

2. Research Garage Door Installers

Find out which garage door installers are available in your area. Look for a long-standing business with a good reputation.

  • Get references from people you trust who have recently installed or repaired their garage door.
  • Browse websites for local garage door contractors, prioritizing companies with a professional and informative website.
  • Contact installers and evaluate them for good customer service and responsiveness.

3. Get Quotes

Meet with multiple contractors to get quotes and compare bids. Evaluate your experience with each business. Some contractors offer a more streamlined process and have more polished customer service practices.

Prices may vary from one installer to the next. The best installer is not always the cheapest. In fact, unusually low prices could be a red flag. Compare products and warranties before deciding on a contractor. Don’t settle for less just to save money. Buy a garage door that will improve your property value and add to your home’s curb appeal.

4. Check References and Sign a Contract

Before hiring a contractor, check references to be sure that other homeowners have had a good experience with that contractor. Sign the contract to get on your garage door installer’s schedule. At the height of the summer, some contractors can be busy. If you’re in a hurry, get started as soon as possible.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

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.
