Burglars look for the weakest part of a structure when they want to break in. Not surprisingly, for residential and commercial buildings, the areas they most often deem to be the most vulnerable are the doors and windows. If you want to keep your business secure, having the right company to handle your commercial window and commercial door installation or commercial replacement door jobs can make a big difference in keeping your building safe and secure.

  1. Start by talking to business owners you already know. One of the best ways to find quality goods and services is to get a personal recommendation. If your business is located alongside others companies who have had a commercial door installation done, you may want to start by talking to them about who did the work for them. While you may not go with the same company they used, they can get your started with a list of commercial replacement door or installation companies to check into.
  2. Look online. There are a lot of websites that are devoted to promoting or reviewing local businesses. A quick Google search can reveal a lot about local companies who handle commercial door replacements and repairs. You should also check the Better Business Bureau’s website to look into the ratings for the different companies in your area who handle this kind of work. You can also check local Facebook groups for information on local commercial locksmiths, look at Yelp and Angie’s List for help finding good companies and contractors.
  3. Look at what your needs are. Every business or industry has its own needs when it comes to securing the property. If you run a auto shop, your needs for your commercial door locks are going to be very different from someone who manages or owns a beauty salon. You need to go to a company that has experience with the kind of building or space you use for your business.
  4. Check out their work. When you are looking at having a commercial replacement door put in you may need more than just a secure system. You need your door to look right, too. If you want to make sure the door that is installed looks the way you need it to look, ask the company if you can look at real world samples of their work. If they have been operating in your area for even a little while, you should be able to drive by companies that have hired them to look at the doors.
  5. Check what they tell you. You need to know that the company you hire has the right experience, credentials and licenses to do the work on your business. You should start by asking them about these things directly but you also need to do your own due diligence and check up on what they tell you. It is much too easy to fake some references or other paperwork. You will pay for it in the end if you hire someone who does not have the right credentials or training. Also, you should make sure you have any permits that you might need to get a commercial replacement door installed. You may not need this but it takes much less time to look into it before you have work done than to deal with the consequences later.
  6. How responsive are they? When you need to have a commercial replacement door put in, you may not have all of the time in the world to do this. Make sure the company that you hire can do the work in the timeframe you need it done in. By the same token, if you end up needing repairs made to the door, you need to know they will be there to back up the work they did or to make the repairs or changes that you need. This is why it is good to check local references.

When you really need to have a commercial replacement door put in, you need to know the company you hire to do the work will use the right materials and have skilled people do the work for you. Your business deserves the more secure door.
