Product Description

Consumers have many choices when it comes to door and access systems. However, most have little firsthand experience in purchasing or servicing these products. When it comes time to call for service or purchase a new garage door, many homeowners are doing so for the first time. The wide assortment of choices can lead to confusion for those unfamiliar with these products.

Accreditation by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA) is intended to assist the general public in the selection of a qualified, professional door systems dealer when purchasing, servicing, or installing an overhead door, automatic gate operator, fire door and other industry products. IDEA Accreditation enables professional door companies to be more easily recognized by the public. Companies earning the Accreditation seal have demonstrated a commitment to industry excellence by completing a demanding study course, documenting good business practices and receiving recommendations from others with whom they do business.

Accreditation is not a warranty, but it’s the best means available today to assist the public in becoming informed customers when their needs lead them to our industry.
