The experience with Steve was great. My wife and I were looking for new garage doors to replace existing wooden doors that were in rough shape as well as to put in new openers. Once we picked a style Steve came out to the house to help us determine the right color and window option we wanted. This took a bit of back and forth while my wife and I debated the color and specific windows but Steve was...

What a thorough & thoughtful review. I remember the job & spoke to you a few times even during the COVID pandemic. As careful as manufacturers & installers can be, once in a great while....things happen. The key to keeping clients happy & thrilled with us is being proactive & doing exactly what you have described. Sometimes, a company’s true worth is measured on how they act when problems or issue...

Fantastic work. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Rob the owner was very up front and honest about how they were handling scheduling due to COVID-19 and how they were prioritizing jobs for the elderly first, etc. Really loved that. Rob also spent a good 15 minutes on the phone with me explaining my options for my openers and door rollers and making sure I understood what I was buying, how muc...

We are in a very tough time Globally & certainly Locally right now. Although it is hard to say NO to clients, our hearts are with the First Responders, medical, fire, police, disabled & elderly or ill who are stuck & can't get their cars out of the garage for essentials they need. I think we all need to pay special attention to these folks & help however we can. That said, we were happy to help yo...

Wonderful to see you are happy. Thank you for the nice comments. The guys did tell me that the door really does need to be replaced. They were also quite concerned about the electric opener. for safety reasons it must be set up per manufacturers directions. That is important for your safety & to not destroy your garage door as well. Thank you again................
