Featured Review (SamsClub): “Very happy with this door purchase! We needed a 16′ x 8′ door with windows, which was harder to find than the more common 16′ x 7′ door. The delivery guy was courteous and helpful. All the hardware needed was included. We were able to use our original tracks without having to remove them and install the new tracks which were included in the shipment. A previous review mentioned the hardware is cheap, but our installer (my son) said, “Of course the hardware isn’t going to be as heavy as the original hardware from the 70’s, but the hardware included is perfectly fine.” Our old door was heavy wood which needed to be painted every few years. This door will never need painting. Yay! The new door is much lighter and quiet while at the same time much more energy efficient. I would highly recommend this door.”
Featured Review 2 (Amarr): “My new Lincoln LI3000 is the smoothest operating and quietest door I have ever owned. It was installed by Garage Door Doctors, and was up and operational in less than 5 hours. They also took the old door away. Now I am not the only one in my family that can open the garage door.”

Featured Review: “Looks great/No problems/Insulates well. My Amarr door is the best home improvement investment I’ve made. I spend a lot of time working in my garage and the door that came with my house looked okay, but it let in wind, cold and heat. This garage door insulates well, looks great and has been reliable for years.”

Featured Review: “High quality door at a reasonable price! We installed this door in 2012 and have been impressed by the quality of the door & looks great 3 years later (like new). The price was very competitive too! We just painted the house and garage door and it took the paint well all looks good! When you install it I would recommend that you check the seal that they install at the bottom of the garage door as I did not notice but it was deformed and while it is still providing a positive seal there was crease along the edge along some of the seal that I’m sure eventually it will cause premature failure. I had some service done and the installer basically said I have to pay for a new seal at this point if I wanted to change it out. Recently and unfortunately our left spring just broke and we filed a warranty claim to hopefully have the quoted $115 installation charge covered. The warranty pdf for the H-3000 was not clear whether the lifetime warranty covers parts as and labor or if they will replace both springs as their fans suggest.”
Featured Review 2: “Never thought I’d love a garage door. My new Amarr garage door is way more than just an ordinary garage door. The wall mounted controller also shows me what time it is & inside temperature, which is always lower than outside in the summer cause the door is insulated. I suspect it’ll be warmer inside my garage in the winter. A camera in the motor shows me anyone who opens the garage. My garage door is great looking. Last, but not least, it was far less expensive than I expected. What’s not to like?”
