Unlike other home improvement jobs around the home, installing a brand new front door is not a do-it-yourself job. Just one small mistake can affect the quality and reliability of the installation. It’s likely that one of the reasons for installing a new door is improved efficiency, so why risk making things worse?
To ensure your door is correctly installed, looks beautiful and provides optimal indoor comfort and security, you must hire the best door installation service. While many companies offer this service, not all are created equal.
Below you’ll find our best tips for choosing a door installation service you can trust.
One of the best ways to choose a reliable door installation company is by asking about their portfolio. How many doors have they installed over the years? What type of experience do they have? If there are problems with the installation, how will they address them?
A confident, well-established business will have answers to these questions. If they say they’ve been in business for “a long time,” find out what this means. At Woodhaven, we recommend at least 15 years in the business, as this gives workers a good background. Personally, we have been in business for over 40 years.
Some companies only offer door products but leave you on your own to install it. This is an extra step you don’t need. Look for a company that offers a wide selection of doors, as well as installation by qualified professionals. This way, you can get everything under one roof and save time and money in the process.
Woodhaven carries a large selection of custom and traditional brand named doors, as well as many different styles, designs, material types, glass options and finishing touches. For example, do you want your door to be wood, fiberglass or steel? Ask to see our portfolio - we’ll help you select the perfect door based on your needs, design preferences and budget.
If you’ve ever had a salesperson come to your door selling windows and doors, they probably seemed polite and informative. But they are only selling you the door. Once you agree, you’re transferred to another group of people who will be handling the installation. This is usually when customers see the level of service drop off.
Pay close attention to the details and the level of customer care you receive. The best door companies don’t just sell doors to people - they recommend appropriate solutions based on noise reduction, glass type, foyer size, frame construction and more. Make sure the company focuses on YOUR wants and needs rather than selling you any door.
Choosing a local door installation service is ideal, as the sales reps will be more familiar with the codes in your area. For example, doors leading from an attached garage are often considered fire doors that need to meet local code. Before you fall in love with a door, it’s important to know which ones are right for your home.
There are also code requirements that most residential properties have to follow, such as having at least one egress door or two exit doors on opposite sides of the house. Talking with a qualified door installation company will inform you of these codes and help you create the safest home possible.
Additionally, many home owner associations have rules and requirements relating to what one can and cannot do to the exterior of their homes. These rules and regulations do include replacing your doors.
Hopefully these tips will help you choose a qualified and professional door installation service that will deliver the results you expect. To learn more about the one-stop door installation services from Woodhaven, contact us today.

Hardwood floors are a beautiful addition to any home. As durable and long-lasting as they are, they can also be prone to scratches. This may not be a problem in all homes, but it’s certainly an issue in busy households with kids and pets.
