Garage Door Technician Westchester County
All the technicians of All Westchester Garage Doors are trained, qualified and experience. We do not send a technician to perform a job unless they have all the tools, the parts and of course all the knowledge required to fix a garage door in Westchester County. When it comes to garage doors in Westchester County, it is simple: If the garage door you own is from high quality, and it was installed by a professional installer, you probably don’t need to hire a technician to fix the door often. If you have been maintaining your overhead door on time, the door should work perfectly. But even the best garage door can get stuck once every few years. And you may need to use the services of overhead door technician. There are many things that separate a good garage door technician from someone who just consider himself a garage door technician, a handyman, or anyone who think that fixing a garage door is something simple, and there is no need to use the services of a qualified repairman to do the job.
What a good technician need?
Patient and honest service
Every good technician, whether it is a garage door technician, or rolling door technician, should never leave a site before he made sure that the door or the gate he just repaired is safe for use, that the garage door is working smoothly, and that the customer is satisfied with the results. During more than 20 years of repairing and installing overhead doors in New York, we learned that there are many different garages, different garage doors, and different customers. Some of the customers insist to repair the current garage door, no matter what the cost will be, and some will prefer to replace the door if the repair will cost 50% of the cost of a new garage door.
A technician must make sure that the customer will get the best possible solution to the problem. There may be more than one way to answer the questions How to solve a garage door problem? And a good technician should aware the customer of all the possibilities, and together decide what will be the best solution.
Understand the customer’s needs
A good garage door technician should understand that there are different customers with different requirements, and he should be able to provide all of them with the best service. After 20 years of servicing garage doors in Westchester County, the technicians of All Westchester Garage Doors understand that there are complicated projects, which require deep knowledge of overhead doors. The technician must provide the customer with the best solution. But the customer may sometime require something that can’t or maybe shouldn’t be done, like a repair or modification that will not be safe, and this is another part of the technician’s job: To explain to the customer what the problem is, how to fix it (In case it is repairable), and to perform the repair only if the garage door be safe to operate once the job will be completed. A good fixer must confirm that the customer understand what the technician did, why he decided to do that, and the customer must know exactly what he is paying for. If the technician leave a site without explaining to the customer what he did, why he did it, and how, we do not consider it a professional service.
Garage Repair Case study
We would like to share with you a case of garage door repair that luckily ended with no injuries: Some people will prefer to replace the door, and some will prefer to repair it. Like we always say, different people want different thing. We once needed to fix a broken garage door New Rochelle. When the technician arrived, he saw that the garage door is in very bad shape, and that fixing it mean that the door will still be unsafe for use. When the technician told the garage owner about it, he told the technician that he do not need a new door, and that he can fix it by himself.
It lasted exactly 12 days, before he called us again and asked for a new door. He was able to reinforce the broken/split panel, but it wasn’t strong enough to hold the weight of the door, and the tension of the cables and springs, and the door fell off tracks and broke.
The conclusion: We do not just “decide” to replace a door. Our evaluation is based on many years of servicing garage doors, and on many cases of overhead doors that just couldn’t be repaired.
If you are not a professional, it is better that you will keep learning, and ask someone to train you until you will know everything there is to know about garage doors. The technicians of All Westchester Garage Doors of New Rochelle are professional and ready for any project. A good technician should repair the problem, and the cause to the problems. It can be broken garage door in New Rochelle, or a garage door repair in Mamaroneck, a technician need to be a pro. Sometime the cause for the problem is simply lack of maintenance, and in that case just a quick explanation to the customer about how important garage door maintenance is, will be enough to prevent the problem from happening again. For example: If the garage opener broke and it is not working anymore since the garage door itself is not working properly, and the garage door technician just replace the opener but ignored the problem with the door, the new opener will also break soon. As every garage door technician knows, what makes the door going up so easily, and what make the garage door stay up and not fall to the ground are the spring system and the doors mechanism. And when there is something wrong with that, it affect the way the opener works.
We train all our garage doors technicians to follow a simple rule: If there is something wrong with the door, and the customer choose not to fix that problem, do not complete the service, and leave the location. We either repair a door that it is going to work perfectly and of course safely, or we don’t. Some customer’s will do anything to try and save money, and we understand that, it’s just that we will not risk our reputation by performing a service which is less than perfect.
Safety always comes first!
The rule is simple: If there is a problem, stop using the door. And never ignore it. Ignoring a problem will only make the problem worst, and can even end injuries. Take care of the problem while the door can still be opened, since you do not want to find that your door is stuck.
We recommend to never even try and repair a broken garage door if you are not completely sure that when you will complete the repair the door will be 100% safe to operate. We have responsibility, we have warranty, insurance, and we put our name on every overhead door in New York that we service. So we will never repair or attempt to repair a broken garage door unless we know that when we will complete the repair, the door will work, and it will be perfectly safe to operate.
Safety is something we will NEVER compromise about, and there is no such thing as almost safe, or partly safe. Either the door is safe, or it is not.
