Choosing a Garage Door Repair Company in Glendale, AZ

Your Garage Door is not working? Now what? Here are the most important factors to consider when choosing a which garage door repair company in Glendale, AZ to hire.Glendale's Garage Door Doctor services Glendale, AZ

First and foremost, they should be ROC Licensed Contractors. Glendale’s Garage Door Doctor is licensed by the ROC (ROC#268242).
The Registrar of Contractors is there to protect consumers, but they can only assist the consumer if a licensed contracted is used. The ROC can file charges against an unlicensed contractor, but that doesn’t help the consumer with a problem. The ROC can make a licensed contractor return to a job and fix a problem if the job is not done to industry standards. Failing that, the ROC can ‘fine’ a licensed contractor on behalf of a consumer to help the consumer get the job done correctly by someone else. Moral of the story? The ROC will help consumers, but only if a licensed contractor was hired in the first place.

Second, the company should be in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. Glendale’s Garage Door Doctor has an A+ Rating with the BBB.
Similar to the ROC, the BBB can only help consumers with issues with BBB member companies. The BBB can help mediate disputes between the consumer the contractor.

Finally, the consumer should look to trusted, verified reviews like those on Home Advisor and Angie’s List. Glendale’s Garage Door Doctor is among the most highly rated garage door companies, not just in Glendale, but nationally.
Both these companies verify the consumer actually hired the company being reviewed. Other sites such as Yelp make no such distinction. Anyone with an email address can write any review on Yelp, whether they interacted with the company or not.

In conclusion, choosing an ROC licensed, BBB member with great verified ratings gives you the best chance of find a great Garage Door Company like Glendale’s Garage Door Doctor in Glendale, AZ. Call us today at 623-825-7344.

LiftMaster 8500 Side Mount Garage Door Opener

Garage Door Openers have certainly made our lives easier. Between keychain sized remotes, keypads, remotes built into our cars, and smart phone apps, the garage door is now the primary point of entry and exit into many of our homes.jackshaft_garage_door_opener

The only downside to most modern garage door openers is the mounting system. The motor head is mounted in the center of the garage and an 8’ or longer boom is suspended between the motor head and the wall above the garage door. This system blocks access to lights, storage rafters, attics, and other ceiling options in the garage.

LiftMaster has a solution. The 8500 is a side mount (also called a JackShaft) garage door opener. That means the motor head is mounted to the torsion shaft and on the wall next to the garage door. There is no boom or rail. The 8500 turns the torsion shaft directly. It is out of the way, clearing the center of the garage ceiling for better uses.

As part of the Elite Series of openers from LiftMaster, the 8500 comes with a lifetime motor warranty and a 5 year warranty on other parts.  There are a variety of accessories available with the 8500 as well; they include: battery backup, a remote light kit, and MyQ internet access.Elite Series 8500 Garage Door Opener

Memorial Day 2016

This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend. The weekend that traditionally kicks off summer. But Memorial Day has more meaning than just the start of summer. Memorial Day is the day we honor the heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. The liberties and freedoms that we all to often take for granted are protected and defended by the selfless acts of these heroes.

So, instead of thinking about the weekend, the cookouts, and the pool parties, please take just a moment to reflect on the fallen men and women of our armed forces and their families.

Glass garage doors are also sometimes known as “Full View” Garage Doors. Theses doors will use steel, or more commonly aluminum frames with full length glass. The appearance is very modern and similar to some commercial buildings. We’ve even seen these doors used in patios, foyers, sun rooms, and great rooms to either extend the living space or open a home to fresh air and the fragrances of the great outdoors.

The glass can be clear, tinted, opaqued, or otherwise decorated to match the style of the home and privacy needs of the home owner. Additionally, multi-color and style frames can be use to provide additional style options.

Carriage House style garage doors are near the upper end of the product line of garage doors. As such, the steel used for Carriage House doors is at least 24 gauge. Another major difference between Carriage House doors and other styles, is the use of just 3 sections or panels. Most steel garage doors will use 4 sections for a 7’ tall door and 5 sections for an 8’ tall door. Because the stamp patterns are unique and complex, Carriage House garage doors are made with just 3 sections.

Multicolor paint is often used to help highlight the Carriage House style and appearance. Windows or “lights” are a frequent design element in Carriage House doors, as are decorative straps hinges and handles.
