My experience started out normal enough - had trouble with the door sticking so I decided to contact A&E Door. I hear them all the time advertising so figured they were reputable. I explained in great detail what the problem was - the manager schedules a service call. On the way to my home the tech called me and I explained what the problem was as he very quickly told me exactly what the problem was. It was a very common problem with garage stores sticking to the paint as the hot sun bakes the door. Each time the door is opened they make a loud jerk and then the door works as usual. My problem with this entire experience is that the Manager, as well as several others copied on my email, failed to give me this quick and easy solution (rub some grease where the door meets the frame). It would have saved me from calling off work, and from the $100+ they charge for a consultation. $100 for less than 5 minutes of their time is much more than any other profession I know of and seemed very high. That did not bother me though, what bothered me was that they scheduled an appointment knowing very well what my problem was...knowing it was a very easy solution, something that a child could have done. This is was a very deceptive and unethical way of doing business. I would rather pay $200 to an honest worker/company for their knowledge than $100 to a deceitful company trying to nickel and dime me in every way possible.I'm sure there must be better A&E locations, but around the Mason, OH-Warren County area, I would highly recommending going with a different company. if you know there's a huge problem, call A&E, but do not call them for a minor issue as they will gouge you. Hope this review was helpful and can save someone else the hassle!Oh, last but not least, I contacted the manager, he replied but then failed to reply after a month and a half of waiting. Very disrespectful considering how nice my email was. Do business with a company that wants it :)

Honest, very very reliable, and resonable in price. All American Door Lock & Glass was there when they said they would be. I was quoted a price over the phone and that is what I paid once the work was done. The Lock Smith was extremly nice. Thank you All American Door Lock & Glass for all your help in my time of need.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
