5 Tips when you need Doors Installed

1. Ask for a portfolio of past work

You need to make sure the product you will receive is of excellent quality. Ask for photographs of previous work, or visit other projects so you can determine the quality of the company’s workmanship.

2. Keep logistics in mind

When builders and workers are hanging doors of an existing building, it may affect your regular routine. Communicate with everyone using the building about the project and its timeline. They can plan around the disruption so frustration is kept to a minimum.

3. Always consider safety of the premises

When you change doors of a home or office you remove a security barrier for a while. Don’t give criminals a chance to enter your building. Make sure adequate security measures are in place to keep criminals out and people & building contents safe.

4. Don’t pay it all up-front

Discuss the payment process with your contractor. Never pay the whole amount up front, as the contractor may disappear without supplying or installing your doors and windows. Draw up a contract which states that a percentage will be paid up front. The difference will only be allocated when you’re happy with the final product.

5. It’s an investment

Picking a door may be a tough decision, especially because the most beautiful ones are also expensive. Take a chance on getting a more expensive one. The aesthetic value you enjoy now will pay off in the long term. A door adds value to a building. Future buyers may see it as an asset and your property value may increase.
