Why should I use a professional garage door dealer/installer?A. At Garage Headquarters, we believe that the installation of a garage door is not a do-it-yourself job. A garage door is the largest moving object in your home and installation of a garage door is highly technical due to the large number of small parts. Connecting the springs can be particularly dangerous and proper installation is critical to the performance of your door.
Professional garage door dealer/installers can typically install a door in a few hours and are careful to make sure safety requirements are met. Installations by most homeowners typically span several days and cause much frustration. In addition, incorrect installation can void certain warranties, so we recommend a professional handle the job for you.
Q: I want to replace my old door, but don’t know how to dispose of my old one. Will my Garage Headquarters dealer take care of that?
A: Most garage door dealers will haul your old door away after the new door is installed for a small fee. Discuss this with your local dealer when you get an estimate on your new door.
Q: I’d like to purchase a Garage Headquarters steel door, but need a color other than those you offer. Can I paint the door once it’s installed?
A: Yes. All Garage Headquarters steel doors are pre-painted with a factory-applied baked-on coating that is suitable to be repainted. Garage Headquarters doors will accept a wide variety of commercially available latex exterior paints, when applied in accordance with the paint manufacturer’s recommendations. Do not use oil-based paints.
