    • What are your PAYMENT TERMS?

      We generally require payment in full at time of service. Net 7 day billing is provided to established commercial/condo accounts. We try to keep our pricing fair by insisting that payment is received promptly. In most cases we ONLY take payment upon completion of the job - a deposit maybe required for custom wood or carriage style garage doors or when the job price exceeds $2000. This deposit maybe made by credit card so you are assured that the work will be performed consistent with the written proposal which we have provided. Payments not received by the due date are subject to re-invoicing at our higher rates (up to 100%) as original invoicing is based on prompt payment.
