My husband called this morning (Saturday). Reese called him back and gave him a time frame of when he would be here. Reese came out, waited while our insurance company was called, and then proceeded to fix our garage door. Thank you for the Saturday solution to our problem! We are so grateful and we recommend this company to anyone experiencing problems with their garage door.

Sean came out to make measurements and place our order on a Tuesday. I had a complete new garage door and system installed that Thursday morning. Sean arrived on time and completed the job in just a few hours. Highly recommend!

Reese was fantastic. Very professional and friendly, gave the quote which was very reasonable, got to work, and was done faster than I would have thought. He replaced the spring that busted and got my old genie working again. Love it!

The technician who came out was onetime and gave me a head ups when he was in route which I appreciated. He was honest with what needed to be done and I didn't feel like he was trying to take advantage of me, being a female, or try to pressure me into anything. (I had this happen with my last garage repair with a different company.) He quickly got my door up and running and was able to provide a quote for a replacement door which will be needed in the near future. His quote was a solid $400 under the competitors from the different company I referred to above. I feel like they are a trustworthy company and will use them when I'm ready to replace.
