Surfing the internet, we have seen opinions of several people who have had their automatic garage door installed or simply an automation and have had various problems with the installation company.
This happens when someone only puts the price as a condition for choosing their installation company. This has its logic, but today we all want to sell, but it should not be at any price.We are going to give you five essential conditions so that you can choose with a minimum guarantee the company that suits you best to install your door.
You must opt for a company that is already consolidated in the market. This is because the large brands of doors and automation only grant exclusivity of their best products to companies that defend their image and have the necessary resources to be able to serve the end customer, since after all, their greatest publicity is that the garage door that they already have working in the street are installed by professionals and have a perfect operation for a long time and an adequate after-sales service. This can only be done by companies with qualified personnel.
Do not trust too low prices. As in everything else, in the subject of doors and automation there are an infinity of qualities. Today, eager to sell, many manufacturers have released materials that are not really suitable for the manufacture of garage door. For example, when it comes to galvanized blinds, many installers opt for 0.6 mm slats. or even 0.5 mm. thick. These slats over time will break through the most conflictive parts, such as the sides, giving rise to hooks in the door and in a short time they will end up breaking either there or because of the connection to the engine since that is where it makes more force. We only use 0.8mm slats. and extruded that although the difference seems little, we are talking about the most reinforced slats that are currently manufactured.
You should not decide on the company that is closest to your home but on the one that has the most technical and human resources both to make a correct installation and to provide you with a good after-sales service. A company very close to you but that does not have experience in this sector or does not have the necessary staff to solve a possible problem will not be of use to you in the future, because surely when you need them they will be in another facility and probably not the they will leave to go and solve your problem for you. You have to opt for companies with the necessary personnel to quickly solve any problem that will surely arise at some point.
Choose only companies that give you a closed budget in writing indicating all the work to be done and what type of door you have requested, as well as its characteristics. In the event of an error by the company, it must always bear the costs of problems arising from a bad measurement, as well as not taking into account aspects of the installation due to lack of experience. Never pay more than budgeted !!
And finally, it requires, as long as it is not the same company, that they inform you who the manufacturer of the door is. Today there are many start-up companies that are manufacturing doors without CE marking and without the mandatory security systems. This leads to a malfunction of the door and, what is more serious, to possible accidents. Also, many of the garage door that we see on the street are from companies that manufacture outside of Spain, which means that in the event of possible breakdowns, the spare parts to solve them take too long to be available to the installers, with the problems that this entails.
With all this we do not advise you not to look for the best price for your door, but we do recommend that you search and compare which companies and which material they are offering you so that you do not get unpleasant surprises in the future.
Here we leave you a map that we have found of many of the companies that can offer you their services in the province of Alicante. We have not verified the professionalism of all of them, but we do know that many of them have a high quality of service.
Of course, we want our company to be the first to ask for a budget and let us inform you of the door that is closest to the quality and price you are looking If you have any more suggestions or something you want us to explain, leave us a comment and we will help you as much as possible.
