Today’s guest on the All About Real Estate segment of Atlanta Real Estate Forum is Tim Smith, the general manager of Overhead Door Company of Atlanta. Founded in 1935, the company is still growing as the local real estate market continues to rebound and grow.

Garage doors can make up as much as 25 percent of the face of a standard home, making it an extremely important factor in the style and curb appeal of your home. Today, garage doors are available in a variety of colors and options, meaning you aren’t limited to the standard metal and glass doors of 20 years ago. One of the most popular styles offered today is the carriage house door, which features exterior hardware and handles that make it appear as if the door swings open like a traditional carriage door.

For those buyers who are overwhelmed by the choices offered in Overhead Door’s inventory, they offer a simple solution. An estimator can visit a home and while there, snap a photo of the home’s exterior. Then, the garage door experts can superimpose any garage door offered by Overhead Door onto the photo to provide buyers with a life-like visual of what the door would look like once installed.

As Smith points out, insulation is another major factor that customers must consider when installing a new garage door on their home. Overhead Door’s mission is to educate every customer on the benefits of having an insulated garage door, especially if they have living space above their garage. Thermacore doors provide excellent insulation, saving homeowners money on heating and cooling costs. While Thermacore doors do cost more upfront, they pay for themselves multiple times over in energy cost savings throughout the lifetime of the door.

Overhead Door Company of Atlanta is also available to service all garage doors, even if they didn’t originally install the door.  No matter what brand or style the door is, they want to be the only people homeowners call for all of their garage door needs.

When servicing or installing any garage door, safety is one of Overhead Door’s primary concerns. The largest mechanism that controls garage door safety is the actual opener and the motion sensors that are installed to trigger the opener to stop when an object is underneath the door. Each door is also designed to immediately reverse course and begin to rise if it comes into contact with anything while it is being lowered. Any time Overhead Door installs or services a garage door, they do multiple safety tests on every aspect of the system to ensure that it will work properly in case of a problem.

Smith also points out during the interview that customer service is key to Overhead Door Company of Atlanta. The excellent ratings and reviews found on a variety of online sites attest to the company’s dedication to ensuring that they’re meeting the needs of every customer on every job.
