“The technician was on time, he was knowledgeable, he fixed the problem, and he made a recommendation on how to avoid the problem in the future. We had a thunderstorm and, during that thunderstorm, we had an electrical surge. It surged through the power outlet that the motor to the garage door was plugged into, so it shorted it out.

I'd give them an A and would recommend them to others.”

“They installed new garage doors, and it took one day. They were the ones who installed the original door. I would rate them as an A.”
“They installed a new garage door after someone backed into it. The door is working fine, so we are satisfied and very pleased. It meets our expectations—maybe more. The insulation keeps the garage cooler, and we are satisfied. We would grade them an A.”

“They did an excellent job. I liked everything, including their craftsmanship, and they delivered both the service and the product on time. They earned an A.”
“I've used Overhead Door on several occasions—they are always my go-to. Something broke, and their worker came, fixed it, and went on his merry way. I'd give them an A rating.”
“Overhead Door Company did a great job—they're an A.”
“They've done some work previously for us. They're always very professional, and they do a very good job. They did the job that we wanted them to do. With a lot of services, sometimes the service person does not do the job or doesn't do a neat job, but in every case where we've had them come and help us, they've done a very accurate and professional job. A lot of times these days, if you have an appliance that goes bad, a vendor will try to just sell you a replacement product, but Overhead Door had the skills to fix the existing product that's been installed. They were very capable at doing that. I would give them an A+ grade, because as history's shown, I've come back to them multiple times since I'm very satisfied with the job they did.”
“They were responsive to my contacting them, and they scheduled a convenient time for the repair work that was required. They replaced the operating mechanism—the actual motor that lifts the door up and down. They did not change the door itself. I'd give them an A.”
“They put in the doors at my house. They have serviced probably four of my rental properties and properties for other people that I've talked to, and they've done a great job every time. I'd rate them as an A.”
“They have done work for me. The gentleman was very knowledgeable, and he knew what I needed and what I didn't need. He fixed it and left. I've used him a couple of times. I'd give them an A.”
“They fixed the garage door. He was fixing someone else's house, and I had a problem. So, I saw the technician, and I went over and asked him to come take a look. He came over and took a look, saw the problem, and took the time out of his schedule to fix the problem I had. He said that I had a serious problem, and he fixed it right then. I'd give them an A.”
“He was a real nice guy. He came in and did the job. They were very professional, and they did good work, so I'm happy. They did a repair—the spring broke, so they came in, replaced it, and got it done quickly. I found them because they're in my neighborhood. I'd give them an A—and I don't give out A grades easily, but they're good guys.”
“The technicians were professional and friendly, and it was easy. I've had no problems with their service since it was installed. They did a reprogram—I bought a house, but someone had taken the remote, and that forced everything to be programmed again. I'd give them an A.”
“They had to install a whole new garage door. They're prompt, and they provide good quality service. They're very reliable, and I'd definitely give them an A.”
“We have used them for the last 39 years. They're just very professional, and they do a great job. I've recommended them to many friends, and I'd give them an A.”
“I am not having any problems with the door. I chose them because they were located here in northern Virginia. Everything was done well—I was asked the right questions at the right time, and they were very nice. I'd give them an A.”
“A lady in the office tried to be helpful even though I had nearly 30-year-old doors. They could have said they didn't have the parts, but they could help me, and they did. They had an employee that seemed to make the effort to take care of my service. I'd give them an A.”
“My husband has a loyalty to this company and their brand. They were pretty quick in getting a quote and then turning around and installing the product. We haven't had any problems. They installed a whole new door and opener for us, so I'd give them an A.”
“I haven't had any problems. The person came very quickly. It was an emergency, and he was here not long after. He did a good job. They installed a new door, and I chose them because I knew the name of the company. I'd give them an A.”
“They fixed the problem—I had a broken coil. I'd give them an A, because they were good.”
“They fixed what was wrong. They replaced the springs in the garage door. They'd installed the garage door opener several years ago, too, and I would give them an A.”
“They usually come on the same day that I contact with them with a problem, and they always fix the problem. They fixed my garage door. They're the company I've always used—I've used them for years. I can't remember why I originally started using them, but it's probably because they sold me my garage door. I would give them an A.”
“We've had them a few times, and I can't remember what the last issue was, but they've always fixed the problem. They come and they fix the problem, and the workers are courteous. I have no problem with them at all. We've been using them for a long time for our garage doors, so that's who we knew to call. They're an A-grade company to me.”
“Everything was good. They showed up on time, they did a good job, and they gave good service. They replaced some parts, and they provided good service. I'd grade them as a triple A.”

“They did a great job. Everything was taken care of—they did a great job and they fixed it.”
“They're great.”
“Their timely response and the general outcome of the work made our experience with Overhead positive. They replaced a coil for my garage door. I chose them because they had done service for my house in the past, and I saw their sticker near my garage door, so I knew who to call. I would say they deserve an A.”
“They installed it when they said they would, and it was what we expected—they just installed a new garage door. We heard about them because my husband works for a company that has a relationship with them. I think they're an A.”
“They fixed the problem that I was having, and it's been fine. They adjusted all three of my Overhead garage doors. I think one of them was sticking a little bit or maybe it had gotten out of alignment. There was a problem where the door would not close because the sensors on the bottom—those sort of childproof garage door things on the bottom—had gotten out of alignment, so they got those adjusted again. While they were there, I asked them to make sure everything was working fine, which they did. They're the ones who installed the doors in the first place, too. I would have to give them an A.”
“They worked well. A few months later, there was something wrong, and they came and fixed it right away. The workers were courteous and very efficient. I think we've been using Overhead Door on our house, and we have had experience with the company. It's an A-grade business.”
“What they did worked. The door goes up and down with no problems. They put a door in—a brand-new door, motor and all. I chose them because at one time, we had a small business, and we used Overhead a lot and always had good results with them. I would give them an A, because they did good.”
“They were very congenial, and they did excellent work. I needed a new door, and I'm very pleased. It was expert work—I'd give them an A.”
“The technician was prepared and quick, and they were in and out. He knew what the problem was as soon as he heard the sound, so he replaced a part that was worn out. They also installed our doors. They have the best reputation.”
“They got the door in really well, and it works just fine. I really appreciate their work. I'd give Overhead a superior grade because they did an excellent job. They deserve an A+.”
“They replaced three garage doors. The person that came out to give us an estimate, the technician, and the product are all excellent. I chose Overhead for their quality.”
“I had a positive experience with Overhead Door. They did work on our whole garage door. The quality of the work was excellent—A+. This is not the first time I have used this service, and I would use the company again.”
“They did some work for me last year. It was just fine. They came out when we needed them to, and they took care of the problem that we had. The service was fine; I don't have any complaints. I would give them an A. It was excellent service.”
“We use Overhead Door and have been well pleased with them. One of the doors had a power problem, and it turned out that one of the springs had snapped. They came in, totally replaced it, and got everything working perfect. I would absolutely continue to use Overhead in the future.”
“I had a new garage door installed by Overhead three years ago. They did an excellent job. I recommend them to other people.”
“Overhead Door Company is great—perfect. They've done repair stuff, like periodic maintenance stuff.”
“I think the best company is Overhead Door. I think they are a good, quality company.”
“I just had some repair work done recently by Overhead Door Company, and they did a nice job. They did it very quickly—like, within the same day. I was fortunate he had the parts in stock, but he had to replace a section of the door. He said he'd just gotten them in, and that was wonderful because it shattered and the door wouldn't close.”
“It's pretty much standard work, but they've been able to get out quickly. They're excellent.”
“They did some work for me last year. It's worked—I've had no problems whatsoever, and they did what they were advertising. I was very pleased with what they did. I have three garage doors—I bought this house 12 years ago, and it was built in the late '60s—and the garage doors were not functioning. The old motors were not working, so I just never did anything with it. Finally, I decided I would go ahead and make all three garage doors functional. They came in and put their top-of-the-line door openers in. They were able to use the existing doors, but they put all new mechanisms in. An A+ is what I would give them. I had no complaints, and they did a great job. They got it done in one day, and they followed up. It was a very good experience.”
“We replaced our garage doors with Overhead Door Company, and they did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend them to somebody else.”
“They replaced the bottom panel in the door, and they installed the door originally. They're excellent—A+. I would tell other homeowners to go to them.”
“We use Overhead Door Company—very, very, very good. They came and replaced our door, then we had to have it fixed again, and they were out here. They come out immediately, and they do a wonderful job. They're very good. I recommend them to everybody.”
“I liked Overhead Door Company's knowledge and their ability to solve the problem. The garage door spring mechanism had broken, so it was not operating, so they fixed that. I have been using them for probably four years, and it's been good service; they respond on time, and they have knowledge of the work. I believe I found out about them because the previous owners left a note that they had installed the door. They're A+.”
“I had a positive experience with Overhead Door. It was for a broken spring. They got here on time, worked efficiently, and did not stop or anything. They were finished in a timely manner and fixed the problem. I feel like I received a good-quality product. I'd give them an A+.”
“We got hit by lightning; it traveled through the house from the electronic fence outside, and it killed the motor to the garage door openers. Overhead Door was great. The workers were competent and friendly. They even rolled out the paperwork for the insurance company and took pictures. Everything was fried and burnt. We were just lucky—the house could have burned down, and it didn't. Overhead's just great, and they helped us quite a bit.”
“They replaced garage doors for me last year. They were prompt and provided good service. They were responsive to what we wanted and got us the doors that we wanted. I think we had used them in the past. I would give them an A.”
“They always come out when they say they're going to—on time. They're pretty quick about fixing things. We've used them at least twice at my old place. I've got a new place now, so I haven't used them yet. The last time, I believe they worked on the automatic opener and the chain or the spring that attaches to the door of the garage. I keep using them because of their brand, their reputation, and their level of professionalism and service. I would give them an A.”
“Overhead Door came out and did the job. They were great, and the guy who did it was very nice. It was just one guy, and he did the spring on the garage door. I'd give them an A—no complaints. They're good, and they did a good job.”
“Everything was done nicely. I think, one time, they came over, and they said that they were changing the appointment time, and they were always informing me ahead of time. They didn't replace the whole door; they only replaced two or three panels or something like that. I would give them an A.”
“I think it was a positive experience. I had them service two garage doors. I would use them again. I'd say they were an A.”
“It was Overhead Door that did the job, and it's still working. It's working, so I guess it was great. I would rate them an A.”
“I'm satisfied with Overhead Door. They replaced my garage door. They were recommended by a friend. They deserve the top grade.”
