“The guy was very personable. He spent a lot of time making sure we had the right—I don't know all the parts but—coils and stuff—and he was very friendly. We talked about kids—both have kids the same age. Just very personable and definitely took the time to make sure everything was right, explained what was wrong. They deserve an A+; they were great. The door might have its own issues, but he did give me some follow-up, as far as we could grease it up. It's a little noisy, but I don't know if it's anything they did wrong. I think part of it is that the track system is probably a little old. I don't think it's anything they did wrong. Eventually we're going to have to upgrade. I don't remember anything being left behind, or anything like that. He definitely knew what he was talking about.”

“I've used them two times, and they are very good. I liked that they are a local company; one of them coached my son in lacrosse, and that's how I found them. I've called, and they've come out either that day or the next day. They did spring repair on our garage door. I would grade them ‘A,’ all across the board. I would absolutely recommend Allen Door & Service.”

“I had nothing but good experiences with Allen Door & Service. I think they do beyond what they have to do when they come. They put up the new door; I had several problems with the springs breaking. I have them come every year. I would grade them an A+, because he helped—I hit the frame of my garage, and he helped me fix it, and he didn't have to do that.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“One thing they couldn’t do, and they seemed to be in a rush to get away from, was programming my car to the electronics of the door. The guy told me to look in my manual, and he took off. I had a problem with that. As far as the door itself, it’s working fine. They put in a new motor to raise the garage door.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They were prompt and took care of my problem, and I appreciated that very money. They had to redo the garage; it kinda came off the track—it would not open. We couldn't get it open one way or another, so they had to oil it back up and open it up again. I would grade them an A. I would highly likely recommend them.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“Allen Door & Service was fine. The door didn't break again. It worked. They replaced the spring. I'd give them a B overall. It took a little long to get there, but I would say it's still good. They cleaned up after themselves. It was the garage. I guess he knew what he was doing; he fixed it.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They did a great job. They just made it real easy. They came out, were willing to work with me. I did some of the work. So, they worked with me with that. They were very clean, banged it out in one day. They put in two new garage doors. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They must not have been bad because we can't remember. Everything was good. No problems there. They were able to get someone there when I needed them. They replaced the garage door—not the door but the garage door opener. I'd say they're an A.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“Spectacular. They came over, did what they said they were going to do, and got the job done. Everything’s worked out well since. They repaired some springs. Allen Door deserves an A+.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“I know the owner, an acquaintance. They put a new garage door in for me. It took about three-quarters of the day, most of the day. I'd give them an A. I didn't see any problems.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They came on time; they did what they said. They replaced a spring and moved a button a few feet over that I didn't care for where it was located. It's an A+.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They're a very good company. I have no complaints. I'd give them A+ on everything. They've put doors in for me over the years in my business and my home.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They had a better price, and they were efficient and clean. They installed a door and then repaired one. I'd say they're an A. They were there on time.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“I think I just needed someone to repair the door before we sold the other house. I guess they did a good job. I would grade them a B.”

Review by

“We love Allen Door. They put in new garage doors. I would grade them an A+. They did a great job. I already have recommended them.”

Review by

“They came right out and fixed the problem. They replaced the garage door springs. ‘A,’ across the board.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“I can’t say enough about how pleased I’ve been. They came twice within the same year to do repair and service, and they were outstanding. Allen Door is certainly an A+.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“They were here on time, did a real short job, and were gone. They did it very well, they fixed my garage door. They put three new doors on for me in the past. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“They delivered on time and put the door in right. It was a complete replacement. I would grade them as an A. The quality of work was good. It was on time. They cleaned up after they left. I guess I would recommend them.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“They've done work for us, and it's been good work. Plus, the fact I was—we were very close friends with the father. The door wouldn't go up and down, and they fixed it. Good work with no problems—A. In fact, Allen Door & Service does a lot of work around here.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“Just the ease of doing business with him—the honesty that I felt working with him made it a positive experience. He did an excellent job putting in the door lift and was very helpful in advising me what to do—where to put extra openers and things like that. He was extremely helpful; I would rate it an A.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“We did a little repair. Allen Door & Service got the job done at a reasonable price, and I went to school with one of them. They got us a new garage door, batteries, and stuff like that. I would grade them an A. They were right on time. No problem with cleanliness, and they knew how to fix the problem.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“They came by, and they fixed it. Excellent work. They fixed it, so it works. There was some piece inside the engine that broke, and to be honest with you, I guess he could've replaced the whole engine, and I would not have known any better, but instead he fixed the piece. He was definitely very honest. I'd give them all A's. Everything was fine. I haven't had a problem since.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“Allen Door & Service did a good job, and they did it in a timely way—basement—and they had all the equipment and materials with them the first time. They had to replace the hinges going down the garage door that made it go up and down; they had to replace the weather stripping on the bottom of the door, and they put in a new garage door opener. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“The price. He came in and did what he said he was going to do. He came in and got it done cleanly and it made it easy. We replaced garage doors, they put in a whole new unit. I would grade them an A+. Their quality of work was wonderful, no complaints. Customer service was great. I would absolutely recommend them.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“I had to replace a garage door—not the entire door, just the bottom two panels were dented, and it wouldn't allow the door to close—and the options they gave me were OK. Like, let's say if you broke a heel on your shoe, and somebody said, ‘Here, I can give you another mismatched shoe.’ Nobody wants to do that; you'll have to go out and buy new shoes. I didn't feel like they were the most helpful. I ultimately had to replace the door, which was fine, but I felt like I was working hard throughout the process; it wasn't easy. They did a good job, but it just wasn't easy. Somewhere between a B- and a C+. It wasn't that I wasn't satisfied; I ultimately got done what I needed done. It's just the process was not easy or helpful, about what to do. Their quality is fine. They left something out. The people who actually installed the door were on time, but the time frame they said it would take to get done was much longer than was initially said. They were fine with cleanliness. Expertise is where I didn't feel like they were helpful.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“They were prompt, clean, and honest. It was something actually really simple, but I didn't realize it, and the tech that came out, came on time, and he was very honest. He said, ‘Looks like it’s a really easy fix; all I have to do is this, this, and this.’ Instead of selling me a new door opener or something, he did the easy fix for me, and it's worked ever since. I would grade them an A. I would highly likely recommend Allen Door & Service.”

Review by
09/22/2017

“Everything made it positive—the work, they were there on time, they work well, the price’s upfront—everything about it. They stand behind their work too. One, they put a new motor in it. The next time they put springs on it, and it's working great. I have no complaints on it. There's not a lot I can say about it in words, but I would recommend them to anybody else. If you have any problems, you just go to them, and they take care of it. They're an A+. I'll deal with them again, too. I recommend them to people.”

“They're excellent.”

Review by

“They replaced two car garage doors in their entirety and installed one new opener. They were local and dependable. I don’t think they were the cheapest people in the world, but they weren't too bad. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“They came out when I was having a problem with the one door. He diagnosed it, made some changes, moved everything up for me, and got it fixed very quickly. He took the time to explain some of the things I could do to maintain the door going forward. He didn't try to sell anything or do any add-ons. He took care of the problem very quickly. He was here when he said he would be here. Courteous and prompt are probably the two big things. I would give them an A+ grade. It was really a good experience.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“They came and adjusted what controls the motion of the door. That's the only thing they did. The sensor is hooked onto the track by friction. I think the vibration of the door moves a little bit sometimes and then when it moves, the light doesn't go shine from one side to the other. Then the door won't function right. They took care of it. I think it's a very good door and I get good service. They did both doors and a couple of years ago, they replaced a door opener on one. If I needed work or was going to buy another door, I would most likely buy it from them. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“The side that was repaired, the cable had broken. When the doors open, it hangs down a lot more than the other side. So when the doors' coming down and there's tension on that spring, it kind of catches a little bit. I'm hoping that in the long run, something doesn't happen there. The door's a little cockeyed when it comes down and I have to push the one corner down. It wasn't doing that before. As soon as he did it, I noticed the one side hung a little differently than the other side, a little looser. I think the cable should get pulled a little tighter on one side, but I haven't called to complain about it. I'd give them a B. I'm a little concerned about the wire. Their customer service was fine and everything was on time. Their cleanliness was perfect. I'd recommend them.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“They fixed our garage door spring. The guy was nice and friendly. They gave me a straightforward quote. A lot of companies wanted to charge me to come out to look at the problem, and then charge me to come out a second time. They took my order over the phone, came out, and installed it. They were really easy to work with. They were definitely an A+. They definitely exceeded my expectations. I was very happy.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“They  helped us decide what kind of garage door to select. They were very kind. They gave me lots of help, installed it, and did a very good job. I absolutely love it, every time we pull up. I would give them an A grade for the overall experience. We're very pleased. In fact, we moved here and I contacted the people that we had previously had a garage door done, that we were thoroughly in love with. They told us to use Allen and we did and we were very happy.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“The door would not stay down and it kept popping back up. They were able to fix it. They came on time, they fixed it, and they did what they were supposed to do. They're nice people. I'd definitely give them an A grade.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“One  side quit working altogether. They came out and put a new sensor up. It was great. They checked the other door out to make sure it was working OK. The experience was excellent, no complaints.”

Review by
10/11/2016

“Everything went well. It's been working since. I've had small problems, but not much. It's been generally fine. I'd give them an A. They did a good job. Everything worked out to my satisfaction.”

Review by

“It was stuck, it didn't work. They got the electrical working. It was a sensor issue and they were able to fix it. I would give them an A. They came a couple of times and did everything well.”

Review by

“They  replaced my garage door and my opener. The customer service was really good and they knew everything that was approved by my HOA. The price was reasonable. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a terrific job. We used them a number of times. They have great service, they arrived when they said they would, and their prices were very competitive. I give them an A.”

Review by

“They always come on time when we have a problem. They're pretty good. It was years and years ago when we got their name from a neighbor who used to live next door. I'd say A for them.”

Review by
09/27/2015

“They were prompt, they're local in the area, they came out, and everything went well. They did our garage door. I'm from the area, so I knew they were there. I'd grade them with an A.”

Review by
09/27/2015

“It was four or five months ago. I remember him coming, fixing it, and being very nice. I think my experience was good, as I recall. I just remember being satisfied and having it be fixed, which was great. I would give them the best rating.”

Review by
09/27/2015

“I liked everything. They did a great job. They were cheaper than everyone else, which worried me at first, but they actually did a great job. I had a problem at the end of it, and they came and solved that immediately. They made the garage doors bigger. We had two eight-foot doors. They put in two nine-foot doors, and obviously the electronics went with it as well. We chose them because they were a local company; we'd seen them around here. It was all very positive. I'd recommend them to anyone. There was a problem, but they fixed it straight away, so that's B+ work.”

Review by
09/27/2015

“It was a while ago, but it was a good experience. They came out right away, which was nice. They did garage door work for me. I believe they are the company my builder used when they built the home, and that's why we used them. I'll just say A for them.”

Review by

“Everything was fine. It was for garage door work. They were very good.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They did some work before. They were good. They were efficient and got the job done. It was good. They did a garage door opener and some insulation, a seal. I heard about them because the previous owner had used them. They get an A from me. They were good.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They knew what they were doing, they did a good job, and they even came back when I had a little bit of a problem. They did garage doors. I guess I was just familiar with them because they were in the area. I saw their trucks. I knew the name. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They've done a wonderful job in the past. They were prompt, they put the product in, they made sure it worked, and then they left. They installed openers. I heard about them just through word-of-mouth. They'd be an A all across the board for their service, their promptness, the part that they installed—everything.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“It was a while ago. It was my first visit here, but I think they were the best price we got. They were the quickest. They installed our new garage door within a day, and they're local to us. Allen Door just happened to be the best ones. I'd give them definitely an A+. We're planning on doing some more work on our house with doors and whatnot, and we're going to call them.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They were very prompt, and they fixed what I wanted fixed. They fixed a garage door, an automatic opener. I think we had a previous experience with them years ago, which was why we chose them. I'm not sure about what they did. I'd say B fits best. I don't have any suggestions for them to improve.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I thought they did a good job. They fixed the problem. The company that they purchased installed my garage door. At some point, it had some problems over time, and Allen Door came out. They were the successor, and they take care of everything that is wrong. I don't have any problem with them. There's a spring that's attached to the door, which helps it go up and down. That broke one time, and they replaced that. I guess they're excellent. I don't have a problem with them.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I would definitely highly recommend them. Everything stood out. They were the best service I've had. I have a home that needs a lot of service from time to time, and they have given me the best service. They are terrific. I never mind calling them. I just love them. That's the only word for them. They are the best. I highly, highly recommend them. Our garage door's springs broke. We've had them for years and years—I mean 30-plus years. 40 years, maybe, if they've been in that long. It seems they're the only people I remember having. Whenever anything goes wrong, I have no problem calling them because they're so good about everything. I highly recommend them. They get an A++ from me.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“I liked them very much. They do very good work for me. Every time I call them, they're very prompt when they come over and fix things. I find them very good. They put a gasket in the bottom of the door. The previous one had worn out, so the door seals better when it goes down. Then, they replaced batteries for me. I'm handicapped, so I can't do anything. That's what they recently did for me. The outfit I had before them seemed to be a little flaky, so I called Allen Door. I knew they'd been in business a long time, so I thought I'd give them a try and see what it's like—this was about three years ago now—and I've been satisfied ever since. I'd grade them with the best grade.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“It's absolutely positive. Their service was excellent. The quality of work was excellent. They did a good job. They measured everything properly, and there were no problems. They were friendly when they came out and did a good job. They replaced two garage doors. I don't remember how I heard about them. I'd grade them with an A for excellent.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They were prompt, they do a very good job, charge a reasonable price, and are very professional. I like them very much. They've done various jobs over the years. They've repaired broken springs on the door, installed the openers, and there was a broken keypad that they replaced. It's various jobs they've done for us. I'd grade them with an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“The gentleman that came out knew exactly what was wrong, knew exactly how to fix it, and fixed it in about 20 minutes. He was great. They fixed my garage door opener. When I had my house built in 1996, they were the ones who installed the garage doors and openers. That's why I chose them. I'd grade them with an A for their excellent work.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“He was very efficient and got the job done, and that's what I wanted. One of my springs was broken on my garage door. He replaced it, and I was very happy with it. I chose him because he was recommended by someone. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They were very good. They were right here when we needed them, and when we had a problem, they came right back and corrected it. They put in a new automatic garage door opener. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They did a great job. I'd give them an A, and a cable on my garage door had broken. They came, they looked at it, and they ordered the part. They came back, they replaced it, and it's worked great ever since.”

Review by
09/23/2015

“They fixed our garage doors. They weren't working. They did a good job. They fixed the doors. We had gotten something done from them before, so that's why I chose them. They were fine; I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They were very, very helpful all the way through and very efficient. The product is wonderful. They installed two garage doors. I chose them because they were local. I'd give them an A+, A+.”

“Allen Door, the garage door people, did some work for us. It was a very minor job having to do with the sensors, but we were very happy. They did a small job for us, and we're very happy.”

“They put in my garage door. I liked that they fixed my problem. They were fine. It was a long time ago. I had no issues after the work was done; they did a great job. I'll give them an A.”
