In the United States 63% of houses have a garage or carport - there are thousands of garage door repair companies

To find the best repair company near you, follow these basic hiring steps:

  1. Read online reviews seeking out grades and ratings - You should always work with companies that have the most experience, and garage repair companies that have been in your area for a while are usually more reputable. They will have more reviews and thus more information on their level of expertise. Contact at least three to see the cost factors in your nearby area.
  2. Learn about their licensing - Depending on where you live, licensing may or may not be required for garage door repair. After you contact them, get in touch with your state, county, or city licensing office to learn whether or not this is a licensed profession in your area, and if a company isn't licensed when they should be, move on.
  3. Get a feel for their reputation - If a garage door repair company routinely does a good job, it will be easy to find out. Start the vetting process by asking the company for customer referrals, and then compare this information with objective local reviews.
  4. Know your type of garage door opener and quiz the pro - The three types of garage door openers are Chain Drive, Belt Drive and Screw Drive.

Quick hiring tip:

Pick a company with a permanent address - While it's possible that a mobile garage repair technician without a permanent address is the best at his or her job, if you work with a company that doesn't have a physical office, you could be left in the lurch when you need to follow up on a job that wasn't done right.
