Customer Reviews

I recently had them replace a garage door opener and I couldn’t be more pleased with their price and service. When Sean the service technician finished installing the opener he spent some time lubricating the existing garage door and tightening the bolts, etc which eliminated every squeak from the probably 20-year-old door. Thank you Sean and Local Garage Door Repair Los Angeles!
