Outstanding. Informed salesman, efficient scheduling, good price, excellent product and workmanship.
The sales, service and installation was friendly and professional. No oversell, just an honest recommendation and suggestion after the free inspection. I highly recommend GDS for any garage door or opener needs.
I had both my garage door and opener replaced as well as our front door and sidelights. The whole experience beginning with our visit to the showroom was excellent. Pam showed us various options for both the garage door and our front entry door and sidelight units. We opted for top of the line products from Clopay for both as well as a LiftMaster Professional garage door opener and keyless entry. Rob came out to our home along with a carpenter that very afternoon to measure for both items. He then promptly emailed me a quote. We had had a previous quote for the front door from another provider. After comparing the quotes and checking on both through Angie’s list and the BBB, we decided to go with Rob. It took about a month for the custom orders to arrive from the manufacturer and 2 crews came out to install them on the same day. Both the carpenters who installed the front door unit and installers for the garage door completed the job the same day. The quality of the installations were outstanding and they completely cleaned up everything afterwards. We have received many compliments on both from neighbors and family. I would give them my highest recommendation.
We hired Garage Door Specialists to install one 16 x 8 and one 9 x 8 Clopay Gallery garage door along with two LiftMaster Premium garage door openers. We opted to replace our 15-year old construction-grade doors that were original to the house for ones that had greater thermal properties and were more attractive and better functioning.
Working with Garage Door Specialists has been a rare treat. It is not often that you find a business that is so customer-focused. I loved the fact that Garage Door Specialists has a showroom where you can see the products they offer firsthand. Seeing door options in person was much better than trying to select something from a brochure. Rob Greenberg was very knowledge about the products he offered and was a great resource in helping me decide what door, style, color, etc. to choose. Once the order was placed, the doors came in as scheduled and were installed just in time to take advantage of the energy tax credit! The installers were prompt, courteous and did a great job on a particularly cold day. Two months later when an accident occurred with one of the doors, Rob came out the same day to fix it. I can’t think of many companies who value their customers more than Garage Door Specialists!
My new garage door looks great! Even better, no more creaking and moaning! The door is impressive, but your price was also the best.
Thanks for everything – you will be the only “garage door specialists” I’ll recommend!!
New garage door. New Front and Side entrance doors. This company exceeded all expectations, from quality of service to superior workmanship. I couldn’t be happier.
We had an older garage door that semi-collapsed on a Friday morning. It was an old, heavy 2-car garage door that had collapsed on one side and was hanging dangerously. Rob and Mike came out that afternoon, and were able to temporarily put the door back in place as a temporary fix. Rob then explained that the door and opener (and related hardware) were all very old, and we would be better off replacing it instead of just trying to fix it. Rob gave me some literature and pricing and took the time to go over the options with me. We ended up purchasing a new garage door and a new opener. Mike came out to put the new one in, and did a great job even though there were some difficulties that made it a tricky installation. He also took the time to explain all the features of the new opener (how to lock it when we were on vacation, how to program and use the keypad, etc). The new door looks great and is much quieter than the old one. Rob and Mike were both very knowledgeable and professional and were a pleasure to work with.
I purchased a new garage door & front entry door with sidelight and had them installed by Garage Door Specialists…Rob Greenberg & his team are fantastic professionals & I highly recommend them if you are considering upgrading your garage or entry door to high quality beautiful doors. I started working with Rob’s company in 2011 when he offered an Angie’s List Big Deal garage door tune up on my old squeaky ’60’s style garage door. He did a great job quieting the noise & balancing the door, and at the time planted the seed in my head to upgrade to the 21st century & consider a new door. Well, one year later I did just that, and went to his showroom in Wheeling where he took the time to present me with a myriad of garage door & front door options. This guy is passionate about doors – there’s no other way to describe it! I chose a Clopay garage & entry door that has increased the curb appeal and value of my house by about 5 times the price of the doors. The difference is that dramatic. The doors were installed professionally & right on schedule. Every part of the experience of working with Rob & his team was great – I cannot recommend them enough.
We ordered an entry door & a garage door that could match as closely as possible.The garage door was a Clopay Gallery collection with ultra grain finish. The top to be long Clayton designer glass with extra heavy duty track, springs & hardware. We also included heavy duty quiet belt drive operator with 2 remotes & safety reverse system. We also had installed extra brown weather seal screwed into entry door from garage into the home.
The Clopay thermal entry door conversion moved the existing double doors, frame, jambs etc & reworked the opening to accommodate the new single door with 2 side lites. They reframed as needed for optimal installation.
Garage Door Specialists then installed the Clopay Clayton textured fiberglass entry door (design Fo6051 oak textured finish) with 2 FOS581 oak side lites, jambs etc & almond finish on interior side of door & trim molding. We selected a Barcelone lock set with knob & peephole aged bronze finish which they installed.
Our ancient entry door and garage door needed replacing. Not that they were not working, but both doors were on medicare. The garage door opened with a noise that let me know my wife was home. The front door was an old fashioned solid double door that was ready for the Smithsonian. Why not we thought, let’s look on Angie’s list. We found a number of companies and went, that day, to Garage Door Specialists in Wheeling. Robert Greenberg met with us and made excellent suggestions to update our old fashioned, very dark, minimum prison look. We were considering replacing the double solid entry door with a like model. Robert said he could do that if we wished and then showed us some designs that made us wonder why we waited so long. The new designs looked so much better and let light into the foyer.
Robert suggested that he would come to our house that day which he did. He gave us some additional ideas about color tones and door styles and measured the area so that he could give us a quote when we decided which doors we wanted. We went back in a few days to look at the styles again. After we received the quote we decided to give him a deposit.
In a short time we received a call that the garage door was delivered. We set up a date for them to install it. The installers showed up promptly. The installation went smoothly and in about a half day the job was finished. Very nice installers and nice experience for us. They cleaned up everything and took all away including the old door & old mechanical works. Robert did come over during the installation which was nice to see.
A number of days later they called that the entry door was here. An install appointment was set. The installers came here promptly and during the installation the installers noticed a small damage to the new door. Robert did come over immediately. He explained that he would send the door back to the factory as we had purchased a perfect door and that is what we should get. I never would have noticed the damage to the door. I thought that was commendable that he handled his business in that way. It did take a while for the factory to do the small repair and get it back to us for installation. But, thanks to the installers & Robert it all got taken care of in the proper manner. The entry door did get installed and as before everything was cleaned up and all debris and the old door was removed.
Since the new doors have been installed, we’ve had neighbors and friends compliment us, and say that the new doors completely change the appearance of our house, both inside and out. They’re right. Our experience with Robert Greenberg’s company, Garage Door Specialists, Inc., his installers, and his office would make us highly recommend them for any work needed.
Absolutely thrilled with GDS. My 24-year-old original garage door was warping/deteriorating, over time ruining multiple springs and openers. Finally decided to rip out the entire structure and replace with new. Glowing Angie’s List reviews directed me straight to GDS.
First I called in a repair request to see if anything could be done to temporarily fix my barely-functioning system. Repair tech came out (same day, on time as promised) and assessed all existing problems, and explained what he could/would/should fix, vs. full system replacement. Gave me (what I felt were) honest options and honest recommendations based on my situation. Allowed me to make final decision without pressure nor snarky up-selling. Made decision to replace everything; ordered new Clopay 4050 door (in a special-order color), LiftMaster 3265 opener, + all labor and disposal, and was quoted very competitively based on my price-shopping and also well-discounted for September 2012 promotions and Angie’s List usage. Wasn’t even charged for the original service call, since I decided to do a full replace rather than waste a repair tech’s time with band-aiding a bleeding hemmorhage.
Luckily for me, GDS found a door in my requested color in stock locally, and was able to schedule the installation for 3 days later.
Installers showed up on time, well-prepared, and flew through the job quickly and thoroughly. Job site was left spotless, with a quick chat about rebates, warranties, demonstration of all installed electronics, and invoicing.
The final product is just what I hoped for, and delivered with what appears to be excellent workmanship. Everything is lined up and balanced perfectly and has been prepared for some settling/movement over time. Based on the great responsiveness, honesty, professionalism, workmanship, and overall speed of transaction, I cannot say enough how ridiculously pleased I am with GDS. Well done, guys.
