Top 4 Things to Consider When Choosing Commercial Door Company

When it comes to installing new commercial doors or maintaining the ones you already have, you want to work with a well-established commercial door company. Good companies will offer a variety of services and products – but great companies will strive to serve their customers not just sell them services and products. When selecting a commercial door company for door installations, repair or maintenance, here are 4 things to consider.


While searching for your prospective commercial door company, your first concern may be whether they have the expertise needed to do a good job on your project. You will want to consider their credentials, their training and the breadth of their experience. Also, the company you choose should be able to supply, install, maintain, and repair all the types of commercial doors that you have or want to install.

Further, look for companies that are licensed, bonded, and insured. With licensed professionals, you will know that you are getting qualified people to work on your project. If the company is bonded, that shows they are trustworthy, and you have some recourse in the event of any problems or accidents. An insured company will give you peace of mind—if an injury happens while they are installing or servicing one of your doors, the cost will not fall on you or your liability insurance


With potentially multiple options to choose from that all meet the minimal criteria, you next want to look for more qualitative information, such as their reputation with other customers. With the proliferation of service rating sites, you can easily find review ratings online. If you see yourself struggling with wading through the amount of content online, you can also ask around for opinions. It may be helpful to ask other similar businesses in your area about which companies they found success with.

As you select your commercial door installation company, you may also want to consider how well the company sticks to its promises and timelines. If they do not meet their project timeline, it could affect your business. Also, check to see if a prospective servicer has 24-hour service. Hopefully, you will not need any repairs, but if you find yourself without a functioning door because of some damage, you will want it fixed sooner rather than later because delays could severely impact your flow of business.


4. Pricing

Whether it is the first thing on your mind, the last thing you consider, or somewhere in between, you will need to think about your budget as you select your commercial door, installation company, and servicer. While price is an essential factor in your decision-making process, it is also important to balance your budget with quality. Regarding deciding which company to choose, make sure they have a variety of options that fit your needs, offering quality brands and products at reasonable prices.
