What to Expect

Selecting Your Home Exterior Product

If you're like most homeowners, you'll only change your garage door (or other home exterior product) once so it's important that you make the right decision. Our knowledgeable, no pressure sales representatives know exactly what questions to ask to help you choose the perfect product for your home. Plus, we offer a variety of ways for you to make that selection.

  • By viewing selections on our website
  • By viewing our selection in our newly remodeled Showroom
  • By using our Door Design Center or Door Imagination System where you can see exactly what your own home would look like with a new door in a variety of styles (garage doors only)
  • By using our Shop-At-Home service where one of our experienced sales representatives can visit you in the comfort of your home and guide you in making your selection

After Your Selection Has Been Made

Once you've made your selection, your sales representative will present you with a detailed proposal for signature and will schedule an installation date based on the availability or arrival date of your product. You'll be asked for a 50% down payment to place your order and hold your installation date.

Next, one of our qualified Site Inspectors will visit your home to measure your garage or home and inspect it for any conditions that may affect the installation, making any necessary notes for your installer. If your order needs to be changed based on the inspection, your sales representative will contact you with that information.

Prior to the Installation

You will need to make sure you've cleared out the appropriate work space as indicated on our Pre-Installation Instructions for garage doors and openers, along with any other requirements detailed during your Site Inspection.
