Licensing Is Important For The Consumer

The statute can be found online:  NRS 624.700 at   Violations are criminal and penalties include fines up to $1,000 and up to 6 months or more in jail.

The Top 5 Reasons You Should Use A Licensed Garage Door Company

Here are the top five reasons you should use a licensed garage door company:

Expertise and Experience: Licensed garage door companies typically employ professionals who have undergone extensive training and have years of experience in installing, repairing, and maintaining garage doors. Their expertise ensures that the job is done efficiently and correctly the first time, reducing the likelihood of future issues.

Compliance with Regulations: Licensed companies operate within the legal framework and comply with industry regulations and standards. This means that the work they perform meets safety codes and requirements, protecting you, your family, and your property from potential hazards.

Quality Assurance: Licensed garage door companies often offer warranties on their workmanship and the products they install. This provides you with peace of mind knowing that if any issues arise after installation or repair, they will be addressed promptly at no additional cost to you.

Insurance Coverage: Licensed companies typically carry insurance coverage, including liability insurance. This protects you from any liabilities or damages that may occur during the installation or repair process. If any accidents happen, you won’t be held financially responsible.

Access to Genuine Parts and Materials: Licensed garage door companies have access to genuine parts and materials from reputable manufacturers. This ensures that your garage door system is equipped with high-quality components that are durable and reliable, prolonging its lifespan and minimizing the need for frequent repairs.

The bottom line, that using a licensed garage door company offers expertise, compliance with regulations, quality assurance, insurance coverage, and access to genuine parts, providing you with peace of mind and ensuring the safety and functionality of your garage door system.

Today, 29 out of 50 states require door contractors to be licensed.  These licenses must be renewed every few years.  The process of getting a license usually requires years of experience, recommendations from other professionals, a law examination, and good financial stability.  If a person tries to get a license fraudulently, they can be prosecuted.
