Wood Garage Doors

There is little that can match the beauty and distinctiveness of natural wood. Doors of all types have been made of wood for centuries. The earliest records of wooden doors were in the Egyptian tombs with doors made of a single piece of wood. Doors in tombs were believed to be the entryway to the afterlife. In dry Egypt, there was no concern for wooden doors warping, but in more humid areas of the world that has been a great concern. Garage doors have also been made of wood, and our garage door company can provide them.

Can You Hear Me Now? Garage Doors that Can Talk

If garage doors could talk, they would have much to tell you. They watch the neighborhood, guard your possessions, and safeguard your family. But wait! Garage doors can talk. LiftMaster’s elite group of garage door openers work with a system that allows you to talk with your garage door, telling it to open or close, and to tell you its status. The garage door accessories for LiftMaster include a revolutionary system and Smartphone app called My Q.

The My Q system app has many capabilities

Both residential and commercial garage door service can take advantage of this unique system. Imagine that you own a service company and garage your trucks. Your workers come at variable times during the day to retrieve or return their trucks. Rather than having to get out of their vehicles to unlock the garage, they can simply call up the My Q app on their Smartphone and cue the door to open. The app also closes the garage door on command.

Even better, you can open or close the garage door to your home or business from thousands of miles away, your bedroom if you cannot remember if you closed it, or your car as you are driving away. You do not have to have a special garage door opener, just the Smartphone that most of us have nowadays anyway.

The system works through an internet gateway connected to the garage door opener using your home’s internet router. And if you want your home’s lighting system and other things to be able to talk to you, the revolutionary My Q system can assist with that with My Q accessories that make up to 16 of them My Q enabled.

Your garage door company, Universal Garage Door Repair, has the garage door accessories, the LiftMaster openers, the My Q system and accessories to get your whole house and garage talking!

Reasons to upgrade your garage door

Taking good care of your home is important, and a key element of your home is your garage. The garage door is the part of your garage that will need replacing from time to time, depending on the use it gets. A new garage door has a big impact on how your house looks and in addition, it offers significant benefits:

  1. Real estate agents will tell you that a garage which is in good shape helps a house sell more quickly and adds to the value of the house.
  2. A modern garage door that fits with the style of your house improves your home’s appearance and offers superb curb appeal.
  3. With attached garages and garages with living spaces, or garages used as a work area, a garage door with an R-16 insulation rating can reduce heating and cooling costs.
  4. There is much less maintenance needed with a new garage door.
  5. Your belongings will be safer and more secure.
  6. New safety features lessen the risk of personal injury from your garage door.
  7. Your insurance payments will be lower.

One of The Few Garage Door Repair Services with Screened and Tested Technicians

When having any work done on your house, it should be an entitlement to have peace of mind in the abilities and professionalism of the contractors. Companies who fail to employ employee screening and testing can as a result easily loose the trust of their customers.

Here at Universal Garage Door Repair, safety and trust are at the top of our list of priorities, and thus we employ rigorous processes which ensure all our garage door technicians are more than ready for the job.

One thing that separates us from the majority of other garage door services here in Salt Lake City, is the fact that we are bonded. Before hiring a technician to work on your home, this is one of the main things you should check.

For those who are a little unsure, here’s a definition which explains exactly what being ‘bonded’ means:

Bonded: A guarantee of performance required, either by law or consumer demand, for many businesses, most typically general contractors, temporary personnel agencies, janitorial companies and businesses with government contracts.

Along with being bonded, we also have a contractors licence, a random background check and drug-test, and a stringent screening and testing process which all our technicians must pass.

Our criteria includes checking areas such as licensing, criminal records, and sex offender lists. Here’s a few more details to explain how we do it:

  • We ensure the technician carries the required state-level licensing to perform work in their trade and service area.
  • We perform a criminal search for relevant criminal activity in the state in which the technician is located.
  • We check the official sex offender website in the state in which the technician is located to confirm that there is not a match.

Ultimately it is up to you to choose the right professional for your project. To help in this process, below we have compiled a brief checklist of things you should check before employing a professional to work on your home:

  • Ask whether the professional is insured.
  • Ask for customer references.
  • Be wary of bids that are substantially higher or lower than the competition.
  • Put it in writing. Get a contract stating exactly what is included in the scope of work for your project.
  • Never pay for an entire project upfront.
  • Keep records of everything!

If you are looking for a new door or a repair to an existing door, you can give us a call on 1 (801) 784-4550 to book your same day appointment, or why not pay us a visit at our showroom in Midvale, Utah.
