Attention Jacksonville Area Garage Door Consumers
My name is James Fuqua, owner/operator of A1A Overhead Door Co.
Recently it has come to my attention that some of our competitors are using
misleading and unethical tactics
in an effort to fool consumers and undermine quality, ethically run businesses
like ours. I’d like to share a couple of these tactics that we are
aware of, and then share the real facts!
A Certified Building Contractor (C.B.C.) license is NOT required to repair
or install garage doors. An occupational license is required to repair garage doors and a specialty
license is required for garage door installations. A1A Overhead Door Co.
is a fully licensed and insured business that ONLY specializes in the
repair and installation of garage doors and garage door openers.
State building code REQUIRES the installation of HURRICANE RATED garage
doors. Still, some companies attempt to sell inferior quality, non-code
compliant doors. If you get a price that seems too good to be true, you may not be getting
the “real deal”. To be certain that you are getting a code
compliant door, ask your contractor for a copy of the engineering. If
they can’t or won’t supply this document, or if this document
does not match the door you are purchasing, it is not a hurricane rated door.
Hopefully shining a light on these bad business practices will dissuade
the companies from continuing to operate in this manner.
Here at A1A Overhead our priorities are Quality, Integrity and You, The
Customer. We aren’t always the cheapest company in town and we aren’t
the most expensive either, but we strive to consistently provide top notch
service and product second to none. We would love the opportunity to earn
