Overhead Door Company of Grand Junction FAQ
To be a smart consumer, what should I avoid?
Companies with no track record promising "too good to be true" warranties. These are companies who plan on making their money now and skipping town before you call them on that "lifetime" warranty. Companies who use more than one name. No, this practice is not illegal, but it is a strategy often used to deceive customers and avoid warranty follow-up. Companies who will only warranty their door if you use their opener. It is possible for an opener that has been poorly installed to damage a door, but that wouldn't be covered under their warranty anyway. Companies who are not members of the Better Business Bureau or local Chamber of Commerce. Companies who "subcontract" their labor. Who are you going to call for your warranty work? Is the subcontractor insured? If you don't know who is going to your home it is hard to do a background check. Companies who are not insured. Make sure the company has proper Liability Insurance and Workman's Compensation insurance. Companies who don't have clearly marked vehicles and uniformed employees. If they aren't proud enough of their name to identify themselves how can you expect a professional outcome? Companies who don't offer a FREE written estimate. A sales representative should be experienced enough to know exactly what they need to complete the job to your specifications before any work begins and be willing to put it in writing.
What is the difference between a ready to assemble opener in a box and a "professional" opener?
Many home improvement stores sell openers in a box that you assemble and install yourself. These "box openers" come with a boom that must be assembled and metal flat strap to attach the opener head to the ceiling. Professional openers come with a solid full length, one piece boom for greater strength and sturdy, solid 1 1/4" angle iron to attach the opener head to the ceiling. The manufacturers of "box openers" usually abandon the production of replacement parts in favor of churning out more openers, while the manufacturers of "professional openers" produce replacement parts for those openers for many more years down the road. Professional opener installers offer a Service Department to go to if you have problems and trained technicians to answer your technical questions.
Can I install the garage door myself?
It is well worth the price to have a professional install your new door and take down and haul your old door away. Torsion springs require special tools and training to adjust, and if they are not handled properly they can cause severe injury or even death. Professional installers know what they are doing and already have the tools at their disposal to do the job right saving you time, money and headaches. The labor warranty will be voided if you install the door yourself, and warranties don't cover damage done to the door as a result of improper installation if you install the door yourself. This is one instance where do-it-yourselfers should let a professional do it.
What should I look for in a warranty?
Many manufacturers have a limited LIFETIME warranty, where they focus on the "Lifetime" and down play "Limited". Usually, warranties will state "as long as you own your home", and they won't transfer to the next homeowner. For garage doors, a good standard warranty offers one year on materials/workmanship and labor. With a steel door you want a lifetime warranty against rust through. Some door warranties will specify that you must use their opener on the door or the door warranty will be void. So make sure you understand all the terms and conditions of the warranty before you make the purchase. For openers, the warranty is a little more important because they are more complex. A standard opener warranty would include a year on labor and materials/workmanship with a five year motor warranty. A good warranty will give you three to five years on materials/workmanship and a lifetime motor warranty. With any warranty, you can't collect on it if the company goes out of business. A company with a proven track record and a standard warranty is worth more than a fly-by-night company promising the best warranty in the world. Make sure they can provide the service down the road.
What is the difference between wood and steel doors?
All wood doors need to be painted to protect them from the weather. They come in unfinished Masonite panels and rough sawn (flat) panels. These panels can be covered to create custom "carriage house" designs. Wood flush doors have an R value of R4.6 before they are covered. A steel front, steel back "sandwich" insulated door is a superior constructed door with 25 gauge steel and high R value. It will be sturdier, quieter, and it will allow for the greatest R value with the lowest maintenance. Steel doors come in several different colors pre-painted by the factory, and if one of those colors works for your application, you will not have to paint it. They can be insulated anywhere from R4 to R17 depending on the insulation, either polystyrene or polyurethane offering the highest R value. A standard steel door is made from 25 gauge steel and should come with a warranty to protect against rust through. Make sure you ask your sales representative the steel gauge and the R value.
