Secrets a Few Garage Door Companies Don’t Want You to Know

The statistics below are based on a Google Search conducted in early March 2011. These numbers vary from week to week and month to month because bogus companies frequently change their names and contact information. This apparently they do to dodge unhappy customers.

Therefore, these numbers won’t stay accurate for long. We believe these companies periodically make these changes to avoid customer complaints, but this is only our guess.

Yes, there are reputable garage door installation and repair companies in the Santa Clarita Valley and throughout the United States. Do a little due dilligence and you’ll greatly increase your chances of having a positive experience with the garage door company you choose.
