“They are great, and Door Systems did a great job.”

“They did excellent.”

“Door Systems was pleasant to work with. It was a super, easy experience. They met my expectations, and I would work with them again in the future.”

“When we had a problem with our old door, they were very responsive with getting things repaired. Spoke with Donald.”

“It was a while ago, but I know the man was personable and explained things. He was good. Spoke with Karen.”

“I will use them again.”

“It was a repair job. There was not a salesperson for the project.”

“I am very happy with them, and I would recommend.”

“I find it odd, since I used their services two years ago—I just find it strange I am getting a survey now. I went in with my contractor. It was mostly his support that got us through the sale.”

“I have been very satisfied. We had the doors put on a year or two ago, and we have had to make a couple of service calls. They have been very responsive. One of the guys was late, but he called to let us know it wasn't a big deal.”

“This was a great experience from start to finish. The person who made the appointment was pleasant and informative. The technician showed up right on time. He diagnosed the problem immediately, provided me with a total cost, and did the work in less than an hour. He did a great job. All companies should treat their customers this way—A+.”

“I have used Door Systems a number of times and will continue to do so. They are a professional and high-quality garage door installation and service company, and I have used them for both. I would highly recommend them, as they are there to make you happy with their work.”

“Outstanding work and service. Very happy with the two doors at two houses installed by Door Systems. Excellent service from office to field application—A+.”

“Service person arrived on time, was friendly, courteous, did his job efficiently and left.”

“Everyone from the sales people to the installer was courteous and professional. The work was done on time and without any interruption to my work (I work from home). I would (and have) recommended them to my friends.”

“No issues, they came back for some minor tweaking, everything is working as designed.”

“Great job! Thanks!”

“On time, prepared with parts, problem solved with only one visit.”

“The installer showed up on time. First he tried to repair the motor, when that wasn't possible, he ordered a new unit. They installer was very courteous, and cleaned up after himself. He did a very good job.”

“We are pleased with the quality of the doors and the professional folks we met during the installation and purchase. My wife is especially pleased with the color match of the new doors, thanks.”

“Love this company. The service men are skilled and pleasant.”

“I called the original door installer to repair broken springs on my door. When they didn't return my call, I made a call to your company and actually spoke to someone who could help me out. Appointment was scheduled for next day and door was repaired. It's nice to speak to a person and not a machine to get results.”

“The service that I received was very prompt, courteous, and professional.”

“It was great. We had the bottom section of our garage doors replaced because they were broken and a bit rotten due to weather exposure. The garage is old- built in the 1920's, so it wasn't an easy 'just order something' fix. Someone had to know and understand how they worked, and order and install the appropriate thing that matched aesthetically as well as mechanically.”

“The service techs are great.”

“Very professional good service and excellent follow-up.”

“This company is great, highly recommend!”

“Very happy with the complete job.”

“They did a great job.”

“Excellent service from office to field application.”

“Knowledgeable staff and installers. Very helpful in explaining their work.”

“The last visit was very positive but the two before that visit was somewhat OK. I asked not to send that technician back and that was granted.”

“Prompt high-quality installation! Great customer service!”

“Very, very pleased with all of the above. Unfortunately, I forget the man's name who installed the system, but he was amazing!!! Professional & a real expert!!!! Kudos to him, your company & our beautiful new doors!”

“Ruben installer was excellent, polite and a wonderful person. Very professional.”

“Great company.”

“The only issue I had was with customer service. I had trouble reaching the person I was trying to reach and didn't get responses when I needed them.”

“Great job.”

“I was selling my house and last minuet the home appraisers wouldn't sign off on the loan due to the garage door motor. They came and within the 2 week deadline to close on time, ordered and installed the new garage door opener and jack shaft motor with safety sensors. No other company could help me because my garage door was a commercial door on a residential house. Jay was amazing and squeezed me in just in time to close without delay!!!!”

“The representative who first came to the house was extremely knowledgeable. He had samples with him, explained the differences and didn't try to oversell me on a more expensive product. The scheduling was easy, and the installer did a very nice job.”

“DSI does excellent work. Very dependable and prompt.”

“Overall a very good experience, at first they came out with the wrong garage door opener and the installer had to drive all the way back to Borne to get the right one.”

“Door Systems has supplied fire and security-related service for our property for fourteen years and I have been totally satisfied with the company's responsiveness and support.”

“Performed yearly maintenance on my three garage doors. Very punctual and pleasant to work with. Inspected everything and made the necessary adjustments. My doors are working flawlessly.”

“Dean was a very nice and cordial person. He installed a new garage door motor for us. We are completely satisfied.”

“I ordered a garage door for my shed. I am very happy with the look and quality.”

“Great work, thank you!”

“It was a pleasure working with Shirley and Neil. Their service was professional and prompt.”

“Happy with their engineering, suggestions, and installations. They have walked us through specialized installations (high-lift doors to accommodate garage lifts) as well as 'regular' doors and it has all worked well. Additionally their service is first rate. Our representative is personable, responsive and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend.”

“They were helpful and didn't try to do work that wasn't needed.”

“Great job.”

“Door Systems Inc. was very prompt and efficient. They fixed what was actually broken and went out of the way to fine-tune the springs and to lube them to minimize future problems. Very good.”

“Good product, good install, timely fashion. Everything you expect.”

“Very smooth and quiet compared to past doors I have had.”

“Excellent service; obtaining the replacement door panels from the manufacturer was challenging, but once they were here the project was completed promptly.”

“They do a great job. The only knock would be that we had to wait a few weeks until they had enough jobs in our area. Overall, not a big deal, as the quality of the product and the service is very good.”

“Great value, prompt service friendly and knowledgeable.”

“We were a little bit concerned because the door seemed to shift to one side, but they sent someone back, corrected it, and it works perfectly now. The salesman was very friendly and had good options. They'd get an A.”

“They were on time. It was a professional installation. They were neat. It was finished and perfect. They were very professional, I guess, and that's the bottom line. I chose them because I had used them before. I would give them an A rating.”

“I think I would give them an A+.”

“They were responsive, timely, and seemed trustworthy. They came out and serviced it after the fact. They were very good. I would use them again with no questions. They're an A.”

“It was OK. It was fine with no problems. It works great.”

“They seemed to get the job done. They were doing a garage door.”

“They got the job done and did what they needed to do. They were replacing a garage door. I chose them because they were the first ones to respond. I would give them an A.”

“It was fine. It was a while ago. They needed to install garage doors. I had asked a bunch of different people, and Door Systems came up once or twice. They were replacing existing doors. I would grade them an A.”

“It was a great product and good service. They did it in a timely manner. They were replacing existing doors. I chose them because I'm a repeat customer. I would give them an A.”

“They did a good job.”

“They were very good. I have no complaints. They were here when they said they were going to be here, did a good job, and left. I think we had a little problem with something, but they came back, fixed it, and it was not a problem. They did a new door. We'd used them 40 years ago. They're an A.”

“I had two overhead garage doors installed by them, and they were installed in one day. The guy appeared to do a good job, so I've been happy with the installation. I was pleased with the amount of time it took. He brought everything with him that he needed and cleaned up after himself. He did it in the middle of January, a year ago, when it was cold out. I told him that he didn't have to do it that day, but he said, 'No, I can do it.' I was quite pleased. They'd built the doors when the house was built 20 years ago. That's how I first heard about them. I would absolutely rate them as an A.”

“I had a garage door put in, and they did a great job. The purchasing process was fine, and the installation process was fine. I talked to my neighbors, and they were in my top three companies. They sent out a representative who did the quote for me, and he was very knowledgeable and very professional. I would give them an A.”

“They did a great job. I would refer them with no problem.”

“They're fast and prompt, and whenever I have a problem, they come and fix it. They installed a new door, and then they repaired it once when it broke. It was good. My parents had used them when they got a new garage door many years ago, so that's how I found out about them. I would say they're an A.”

“They worked with my contractor, I got the doors that I wanted, and they work. I chose them because it was on the recommendation of a builder. I would say I had no complaints. I think an A grade is fair for them.”

“Door Systems is awesome and top-notch. They have great service and a beautiful product. They installed three new doors and motors, and I would give them an A.”

“My installer was fantastic. He was a great guy and a pleasure to have around. He made the doors work. Then another gentleman came by, and he was fantastic as well. It's a great door, and we love it. We're very happy. Everything was fantastic—they get an A grade.”

“Door Systems did a good job, and they had very high-quality doors. It came out exactly as we wanted it to. They replaced old doors. We went back and forth a few times to make sure we had the right door, and they were very prompt at doing that. I'd give them an A.”

“They're excellent, and I'd recommend them to anyone—A+.”

“They took down a very old, rickety door and put up a brand new high-rise garage door. The quality of work was excellent. The man was very informative—he took a lot of time to explain everything to us. It was good; it was really good. The workers were very professional. They clearly have been doing it for a long time, and they knew everything about it. I would recommend them to others. Door Systems is an A.”

“They were pleasant and professional, and they did the work they said they were going to do. I didn't have a garage door on my garage when I bought the house, so they installed a door for me. It was done well, and it was on time. I would give them an A.”

“They put in a shingled, overhead garage door. I've had a couple of other companies, and the thing I like about Door Systems—as far as work, almost everybody does it the same way, but this guy did nice, neat work. As far as the doors, I like the way they lock them, because the heat doesn't get in. That's what I like about that door. The work—they did an unbelievable job. It was nice, neat, and very professional. They're an A.”

“Door Systems is who installed my garage door. I was very pleased with it from step one to the finished product. What impressed me so much about their services was they came out promptly, and they answered all my questions, including one or two that I had followed up with by email. I decided to order with them because they had several options. I also have to say that they were recommended to me by several neighbors, so they had done work in the neighborhood. They were the only company I called, and they showed up when they said they would, put the doors in, and the doors are great. They're definitely an A.”

“I ordered new doors—two doors—and they put them in with new railings and two door openers. I just absolutely love them. They were nice men—efficient and courteous—and they took away the old garage doors. They were really super; they kept in touch with me, I kept in touch with them, and they always responded. I have no complaints. I'd grade them an A.”

“Everything's great. We're happy with the garage door, and everything's good. I'd give them all A+'s and Excellents.”

“I had a fabulous experience with the company. They were prompt; they came out when they said they were coming, they explained everything up front, in advance, and there were no surprises. They installed a new door. Everything is beautiful. They were definitely an A.”

“Door Systems did a great job. The workers were very good. They finished my job in a timely manner, and they cleaned up afterwards. I would recommend them, and I'd use them again. I'd rate them as A+, absolutely the best.”

“They've done a couple jobs for us over the years. The last job they did for us was replacing a door opener. I wasn't there at first, but I was there towards the end. They did an excellent job. That's why we keep going back to them—they do good work. I would give them an A, and I would use them again. They show up on time and get out to me in a timely fashion.”

“They're wonderful people to do business with. I would send them business if someone asked me. They installed two garage doors. They did good, quality work, and everything's holding up so far. They were very professional, and I would call on them again. I'd give them an A.”

“Door Systems did a great job—absolutely terrific.”

“They installed a garage door. It is good, quality work. The door itself is holding up quite well. I didn't meet the technicians; I wasn't there. Their customer service was fine, and I had no problems. They cleaned up after they finished. I would recommend them to others—they're an A.”

“They replaced a door, and they did a very good job. It was an eyesore before they installed the brand new door. They arrived on time. I'd give them an A.”

“They were really good; they were on time, and they were very fast. We didn't have any problems.”

“Door Systems installed two new garage doors. They did good, quality work, and I'm very happy with the doors. They finished up in a reasonable amount of time, and they cleaned up after themselves. I would give them an A. I had no problems and no issues.”

“They did an excellent job. They put a custom garage door in. I went through a number of design iterations, and they were very patient with getting me what I wanted. The installers were quick and clean. They did a great job. The garage door is perfect, and it's a very nice garage door. I would absolutely recommend them to others. I'd give Door Systems an A.”

“They just replaced the electric garage opener. Everything is working well. The quality of their work was good, and customer service was good. They're an A.”

“I don't have much experience with them, but they put in a new garage door opener. It didn't take too long between the time we called them and the time they were able to do the job, and they were punctual. They did a very good job. It was very easy—just a simple, nice, little experience. I'd use this company in the future or refer them to others. We would give them an A.”

“Door Systems was fine. I'd grade them an A.”

“They were great. They were here to replace the opener motor. They came out quickly for me. They replaced the springs, which are required in order to have the sensors raise the door, in case somebody is under the door. I really like their work. Door Systems was good. They're an A.”
