They've been working for us for years. They just give good service. I would highly recommend them.
I'm a Realtor, and I call them whenever we have an inspection regarding a garage door, and they're timely and efficient. They do exactly what needs to be done, and personally, I've had them do work at our home also. So I would say for the last 25 years I've called Raynor whenever I've had a problem with a garage door, and I've never been disappointed or I wouldn't still be calling them. I think the company was probably a reference from someone. We were living in Wilmette, and I needed a new garage door. I asked people there, and they said that this company was the best around and I could feel comfortable calling them, and I am. It's an A; they're obviously an A.
They were super responsive; it was an emergency situation, and they came very, very quickly. They spent a lot of time making sure that every last thing was taken care of. The original problem was just one of many, so they went ahead and tested for other things. They were super polite, I think the response time was great, and they even picked up when I called them after hours and were able to respond. Basically, the part of the garage door that was attached to the ceiling of the garage fell off. It was hanging by one little bolt, so the whole thing was coming down. Whatever was wrong fell down, and those long metal poles fell inches from my car, so it was kind of an emergency situation. They were really responsive, they came really quickly, and they were great. I couldn't get anybody else to respond. I was so pleased. I'd definitely give them an A.
I'm very happy with it. They did a good job. They did one of the panels, and they changed one of the panels for the dog. When our house was built, they were the ones that installed the doors. An A grade works for them.
They put the door in originally, and any time I had trouble with it, they came out. The doors have been out here nearly 60 years. We're the original owners of the house, and every time they came out, they did a great job. My husband knew the name, called them, and that's it. I'd give them an A.
They were on time and on budget with the garage door, so that was good. We had a new garage door. They were recommended by a neighbor. I would say they're an A.
Overall, they always took good care of us. John and Ralph were always good. I used to be the mailman over there. They always repaired my springs or whatever had to be done. The springs were done last time. I'd say they get an A grade from me.
They replaced a broken part in my garage door. They found the problem quickly and got it resolved. They're local; they're in my neighborhood. I would give them an A.
They came over and fixed the door. A lot of parts had come loose on the door, so he got it fixed up for me. The door was stuck; the cable on the door had gotten stuck. I remember we tried to fix it that night and weren't able to fix it. I used them because they installed the door. I own the building that they installed the door at; it's an apartment building. If I need a door done, I call them. I'd give this company an A grade. If I needed help, I'd call them up.
They fixed our garage door opener. The serviceman was really friendly, and they did a great job. The company was a referral from our contractor.
