What Can I Expect at a Free New Door Consultation?

When you’re in the market for a new garage door, give us a call. Our Garage Door specialists will meet with you at your home or business to walk you through the process of choosing a new door—free of charge.

The goal of this process is to find the right garage door for your budget, your home, and your style. One that you will be happy with for many years to come.

We’d like to answer your questions about what to expect at a new door consultation:

1. When do you conduct these visits?

We normally schedule them Monday-Friday, 7:30 am to 6 pm. If these times don’t work for you, we can also schedule on Saturdays or later in the evening.

2. Would you come out more than once if I’d like my spouse to weigh in?

We want all of our customers to be satisfied with their decision, so we are happy to conduct follow-up appointments. It is always good to have any decision-makers be present, if possible.

3. How soon do you schedule them? If I call today, can we meet as early as tomorrow?

We can meet as early as today.

4. What will we be talking about?

We begin by asking about your goals for your new door. What’s you budget? Time frame? We become familiar with the style of your home. Our technicians welcome any examples of doors you’ve noticed that you like, in your neighborhood or elsewhere.

5. Will you be bringing materials to look at? Can I keep any of them?

Yes. We always bring manufacturers’ brochures and color samples of various garage door materials. We will also show you a cross-section of a garage door that illustrates how they are constructed, so you can be better equipped to make decisions about materials, finish, durability, and insulation.

You are welcome to keep the brochures and color samples.

6. What’s the next step after your visit?

If you make your decision then, you can order your door right away. Depending on how common your door is, it can take between a few days to a few weeks for it to arrive. Once it is delivered to us, Metro Garage Door technicians can install your door right away.

If you aren’t ready to decide, you’re welcome to take extra time, or let us know if a second visit with more information would help you further. We want you to be completely satisfied with your garage door choice.

Bonus! If your current door is not working and you’d like to order a replacement, in some cases we can make your door temporarily operational while your new door is on its way.

7. Do I need to come in to the showroom at all?

If you choose to stop by you will see larger samples and additional types of doors that we cannot bring on the road. For more hands-on information about garage door options, the showroom is a great place to start.

Regular showroom hours are weekdays, 8 am to 4:30 pm, or call to set an appointment for evenings or Saturdays.

8. Is it possible to order a door without an on-site visit or a visit to the showroom? Can I just tell you what I want?

We encourage a careful decision-making process. We are committed to helping you choose the right door for your house that you will be satisfied with for years to come. Let’s make sure you get the perfect garage door—this is one item you will live with for years.

What People Are Saying About Metro Garage Doors

Top Rated Garage Door Company in Minneapolis – St. Paul, but don’t take our word for it…
Very happy experiences with Metro Door. We've used them before, to install a new opener and for repairs from backing into the door. Always prompt, professional, friendly, and reasonably priced. This time, we needed to replace a 30-year-old opener on our seldom-used small door. After analyzing our situation, the technician, Randy, provided a much better strategy -- moving the 5-year-old opener to the small door and installing the new opener on the big door (the one we use all the time). This also allowed us to install a really quiet belt-driven opener on the big door. Thanks Randy! Great experience all around.

I had a new garage door installed. My initial garage door had a weird problem -- it opened by itself! Our technician came out and was just fantastic. He replaced the opener (the maker of the opener, for instance, tried to send me a part that I could replace on a week-old opener). They fully replaced the opener and the wire and it works great. And Randy was exceedingly professional and helped me understand everything. Great service.

Outstanding service and great pricing! My garage door flipped out and luckily someone referred me to this firm. From the minute they answered my call until the door was fixed, they were simply great. Very prompt, courteous and very trustworthy. The tech was Dana and he was just wonderful answering all my questions and making excellent suggestions. The door has never operated so well and so quiet!. Thanks again for a great job.
