Poorly. First crew had problems with installation and simply left. I called and spoke with receptionist to get someone to call me back. No callback after 1.5 hours until owner called me back. He said there was an issue w/ the installation and the installer was frustrated. Receptionist rude.
Scheduled 2nd attempt of installation. Seemed to be "best installer" and pleasant. Assistant also knew what he was doing. Had to have additional "parts" delivered from Ft.

mid-job, extending the day. When I saw they were leaving I went out and saw that there were screws sticking out of metal, which they did trim, and mess on pieces of metal behind railings which I was told would clean up after a few rains -- yeah right. They look like a 2 year old with fingers in paint slobbered on these slide pieces.
I asked for financial compensation since it took 2 days; that means 2 days off of work for me. They agreed to a 1 year check up.
I called to find out when the completed job inspection job would be scheduled. I was told they simply forgot to schedule it. New engineering drawings were needed so told that someone would be dropping off to me on a Saturday. Never came after staying home. Was called and told that the person would bring the papers on Sunday. Showed up at approx. 7pm, after staying home all day.
The inspection by code enforcement didn't go well because Dependable forgot to tell me that I needed to be home to let him in to inspect the 2nd floor. Had to reschedule code enforcement for another day when I was home.
This was way too much work for me and feel Dependable should have taken better care with this job. Staff had no sympathy or understanding for my time at all.

The job came out great. The plantation city inspector was even impressed with their work.

installed the agreed upon equipment on the day they promised and did it in a timely manner. They cleaned up after themselves and were very professional to deal with.

We contacted the company to request a quote. They sent someone out in a timely manner to provide the estimate. A manager arrived exactly when we were told and spent a few hours with us going over the quote and explaining the difference between the products they offer vs their competitors. The quote was not as high as expected and after our meeting we felt comfortable with Guardian doing the job. Their office emailed a few permit forms for us to sign and they gave us an approximate install date. They called about a week prior to the estimated date to say they were running about a week behind due to the weather and gave us a new installation date. They showed up on the day promised and completed the job. The shutters looked great and worked extremely well. They had forgotten the panel for one small door so I called and they delivered the panel the following day. They told me the date the city inspection would take place and they said they would meet them there and there would be no need for us to have to be there. When asked about payment, they insisted no payment be made before the inspection is completed and passed by the city. We were very impressed by that. After inspection, they emailed the invoice and we sent payment. They make doing business with them very easy, they do what they say they will do. The one suggestion I have for the management is to make a follow up call after everything is completed to be sure you are satisfied with the job... this would put them over the top and above an "A" in my book. Great job!!

Everything went fine. We visited the show room after the folks came out and gave us an estimate. They gave us more information than others we contacted. We had about 5 estimates and we liked this company and the price was great.
We like that you pull them shut, lock them and you are finished. No installing panels anymore.

was there from the first meeting to do the estimate to the final inspection making sure everything was in place and that we were satisfied. He and his crew were punctual and efficient. A real pleasure working with people like that and the accordion shutters look fantastic too!

Sandy came out to introduce me to the product. I had numerous quotes from many companies and Roll A Guard's price was right in the middle. I was very impressed with the warranty they provide.

came out to measure and told me they would set up a day to install once the shutters were made.

stayed in touch with me regarding getting the paperwork signed and returned. They took care of getting the permits and gave me everything I needed to give to our condo Board for approval. I then got a call to set up an installation date. I was very impressed on how quickly the shutters were installed. They were very professional and it only took 1 day to install. I have 2 motorized hurricane shutters because of the length of my lanai. I love how easy it is to lower and raise them. All I have to do is push a button and they go up and down. Now when I go out of town, I know that my condo is protected from storms. I would definitely recommend them.

arrived on time to quote the work. He spent time showing me how the existing shutters worked and suggested a different method of securing them in the open position.
The shutters were built, delivered, and installed sooner than expected. New retention system installed on the existing shutters as well. ...More /> Great work on the part of the installers...pleasant and professional all the way!
Highly recommended!!
