"I purchased 9 Pro Via Town and Country model 520 triple track storm windows with the low-e glass film coating. The units on the front of the house were cottage" style to match the interior windows and were painted to match the house siding. The review scores I gave above are for
. The storm window rating is lower as will be described below.
had good communication between Sales, Scheduling and Installation teams.
in Sales found answers to my questions quickly. Scheduling contacted me promptly after the units had arrived from the factory. The installation team arrived on-time, knew the details of the contract, and cleaned up the work site. Unfortunately, the Pro Via window quality was a disappointment given the price. There are visible gaps at the mitered corners where daylight can be seen. The mitered ends were not touched up after cutting, so the bright aluminum
is visible at some corners as well. Screws at the mitered corners are not painted to match the window frames, so are very visible. The screws into the house molding are painted, however, so blend in. The screens seem flimsy and the paint seems prone to scuff with usage. I will need to caulk and touch up when warm weather arrives to take care of issues that should not be present.

"Our garage door was banged up from a tree falling onto it years ago and a hinge finally broke from the pressure. The door was making weird noises so we were preparing" to replace it. We were told that the manufacturer was no longer in business and everyone was willing to sell a new door, but
from Garage Door by
was the only one who was insistent that we had a good door and that it could be repaired. He suggested replacing the bottom panel because it was the most crooked and if he didn't have that panel (from previous door replacements) then a support beam could be installed on that panel to strengthen it. I spoke with
three times and he was very polite. I appreciated his honesty and his genuine concern for our best interest, and not looking to sell us a door just because. Although he didn't have another bottom panel, a support beam was installed by another technician and the broken hinge was replaced. Thank you for your honesty and great work!

I think he is trying to upsell you on something you don't need, or their company policy is neer fix, always replace - some companies are in that mode not, to prevent future call-backs when it does not work.


IF only needs screws, sounds like a good do it yourself job with self-tapping sheet metal screws. Or a Handyman could do for maybe $50-70 if that is all that is needed.


If the weatherstrip is damaged and in on the front edge of the garage door, one other possibility - replace with one like this, or screw a bottom compression type rubber weatherstrip on the bottom of the door - actually work a lot better than the face-mounted ones anyway, in my opinion. Look like this from M-D Building Products and Frost King among others. Can also be used nailed to frame to flap contacts door face as an edge and top weatherstrip - 


Maintanence is going to vary by how much you use the door.  If it is used multiple times a day as cars go in and out I recommend having it checked annually.  You want someone to lube all of the proper points and inspect the rollers for wear or damage.  You don't want a component of that door failing and falling on yourself or a child.  Sometimes tracks need to be adjusted or realigned for various reasons.  Also, the springs can weaken and break causing the door to fall.  Have those checked as well.

This is review is a few months late. This was first rate from start to finish. The tech was nice and professional(I believe his name was
Athens Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
). I was surprised the tuneup and roller replacement would make that much of a difference on the operation and quietness of the door. The bottom door seal was hard and cracked and I wanted that replaced also. The replacement seal was a lot better quality than the ones I saw at the Big Box stores. I thought the pricing was great for the work accomplished. the bottom line for me: I would not hesitate to use or recommend "

" again.

The technician came out and was courteous and on time. I showed him the issues with my garage door and replaced the parts that needed replacing and tuned up the entire door. Great job....no issues, would certainly use this company again.....

quickly replaced a garage door opener for us after our old one
conked out. I couldn't be more pleased with the work. He scheduled us
within a few days after I called. When he first showed up, our car
battery had died and we had to reschedule for another day. He was able
to come back within one day and completed the work quickly and
efficiently. The price was fair and was exactly what he had quoted.
Definitely would work with this company again.

Although another company wanted me to buy a new metal door which would not be in keeping with the style of the house,
Athens Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
was able to put in new fittings and install a new opener for far less than other quote. All work was done in one day, although they had to work late. The materials were all cleaned up. The work was scheduled in a timely fashion, and now it works perfectly.

He responded quickly and was able to work us in the next day. He got everything put together quickly and even changed out the light bulb in the motor for us.
We had previously purchased all of the items, but he at first insisted that the car remotes we purchased were not compatible with our door. My wife had to read through the entire back and show him specifically were it listed our model before he would believe her. He tried to sell us his door remotes which would have been $150. He was a bit rude to my wife asking if she didn't trust him and why she was looking over the packaging. After he was proved wrong he changed his tune and was very polite.
That one element was slightly frustrating, but the door works great. He came quickly and my wife felt comfortable with him in the home. We would have services performed by him again.
