About American Empire Garage Door

Here’s what our customers have to say about us

“I called Ed around 11 am to get a quote on installing a coded keypad for our garage. He came out 2 hours later, installed exactly what I needed and got the job done. Courteous and professional. I’d use him again without hesitation.”
“We researched and compared several companies while looking for someone to install a new garage door for us. A couple of months later when we decided to move forward, we called Ed and he came out to make sure everything was ready for the install and do a final check. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. On the day of installation he and his crew arrived on time and were very professional. Made us feel very comfortable during the whole process. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Would highly recommend to friends and family.”
“Ed came by on a Saturday. He was very professional, did a good job explaining the problem and how the garage door works. He was prompt in getting the repair completed. While he was there, we tested the work done, and everything worked flawlessly. Ed has offered to help out if things don’t work out properly for some reason. Thanks.”
