What you should know about FRAUD in the garage door industry.

 

There are many reputable garage door companies in Ontario and the GTA. There are also many disreputable garage door companies. A situation has occurred recently where disreputable individuals claim to represent the good companies, and then defraud the consumer with wildly exagerated costs for the work done. Legitimate companies belong to Garage Door Organizations like International Door Association (IDA), Canadian Door Institute (CDI) and have Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) certified technicians. Before you sign any work order or authorise any work be sure that you know how much it will cost and why the parts are necessary. "Worn" is not necessarily a reason to replace a part.Rarely does "everything" go at once. Replacing a spring doesn't necessarily mean the cables and hinges need to be replaced.
Before calling a particular company check with neighbours and friends for references. You might consider checking with the industry organization, see if the company is a member. Check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Chamber of Commerce (C of C) in your area. Most Garage Door Dealers only service one or two geographic areas. Claims of "national coverage" in this industry are misleading. There are no 'national' garage door dealers.



Some legitimate businesses are now having their reputations damaged by a specific group of unscrupulous people.

for example: Superior Garage Doors - this company is a registered company, member of IDA , has IDEA certified Techs, and services Durham Region, City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland County and Toronto east of the Don Valley. They do not ever service or sell doors west of Toronto.

Recently someone has been selling doors and service in Guelph, Waterloo, Ottawa and Burlington claiming to be Superior Garage Doors. These people are not, and never have been associated with Superior Garage Doors.

 

These people are frauds, trading on the good name and reputation of legitmate companies. Their work is generally substandard and the prices are way out of line with industry norms.

 

Do not do business with them. Contact Superior Garage Doors and let us know if/when you have been contacted by anyone in the Guelph, Waterloo, Mississauga, Toronto, Ottawa or Burlington area claiming to be Superior Garage Doors.

Refer to the table below for the known fraudulent, nonexistent or unlawfully copied garage door dealers. The “companies” in green are, to the best of our ability to determine – not registered companies, do not have real HST numbers and are trading on the goodwill of real companies. They are “stealing” those company names in order to sell garage doors and services.
