Toronto homeowners who are thinking of replacing their existing garage door with a new one need to consider a number of factors before choosing a supplier. The type and style of door is of course of vital importance, as is the cost of the door and any associated automatic opening/closing system. One of the most important factors, as far as we are concerned, is whether the supplier that you choose can also install the door for you and if not, who you are going to hire to carry out the necessary work. If you want to make sure that the job is well done, it would be unwise to go for the cheapest option just to save a few bucks.
Why Professional Installation of Contemporary Garage Doors Is the Only Practical Option
Given that a brand new, quality garage door is likely to represent a significant investment as far as most people are concerned, it is easy to see why some homeowners are tempted to try to save a little money when it comes to the installation of their new door. Whether you live near our showroom in Vaughan, next door in Richmond Hill, or further afield in the Greater Toronto Area, you will find plenty of local firms that are more than willing to install a new door on your behalf. However, you need to consider more than just the price when you are evaluating your options. Hiring the cheapest installation team to fit contemporary garage doors could be a bad idea, for the following reasons, among others:
- Uninsured Contractors – One of the biggest dangers when trying to economize on the installation of a new garage door is that you will end up hiring uninsured contractors. In the event that you should do so, you could be liable for the cost of any damage that they inadvertently cause to your property during the installation process. Furthermore, if one of the workers or a member of your family should be injured, you could end up having to pay for all the associated medical bills. While such occurrences are thankfully rare, it is unwise to expose yourself to such risks.
- Voided Warranty – If you hire unqualified and inexperienced installers, there is a very good chance they will make mistakes during the installation process that result in damage to your door. If the damage is spotted while they are still onsite, you can probably recover the repair costs. However, faulty installations of contemporary garage doors that cause damage at a later date can cost homeowners a great deal of money. The manufacturer will almost certainly declare the warranty void if it can be proved that the damage was caused by mistakes made by your installers.
- Poor Fit – Homeowners who go to the expense of buying quality contemporary garage doors for their Richmond Hill homes, or for properties elsewhere in the GTA, should not have them installed by a team that has very little idea of what they are doing. Even if it opens and closes properly, a poor fit with gaps between the door and the frame will result in significant heat loss when outside temperatures drop and could cause mechanical problems in the long run.
