Thank you so much for the quick service and the good price replacing my garage door springs, I called another garage door repair and they tried to charge me more than double your price!  I will recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.

Family-owned business with honest people and fair pricing. I called 5 different places and these guys had the best pricing, the fastest turn around time and the friendliest staff. What more can you ask for?

Great experience with Southern Garage Doors. They were very responsive, fair in their pricing, and great to work with. I would call them again if I have problems with absolutely no hesitation.

Money well spent on a job well done ☺ .

Very honest people and fair pricing. Messaged on a Friday night and they were out by 10 AM on Saturday to repair our broken spring. My husband is very mechanically inclined and considered the repair himself but I am really glad we let them do it. They know all of the fine tuning it takes to make the springs work correctly. Highly recommend!!!!

Best garage door repair company in the area! I called for replacement of a spring. One company was a few dollars lower and would fix ONE spring. Other companies had a rediculous price. I paid $125 and got both of the springs replaced, the garage door lubed, adjusted and it has worked perfectly for the last 3 years. Just called again today to fix a separate issue. They are kind, courteous and no where near as expensive as the local competitors. 5 solid stars!!!

This is a great company. They responded with in a day after my call. Matt arrived on time quickly identified the problem and
offered several solutions. Since their prices were so fair I opted for the higher priced option which he had on his truck. 1 1/2 hrs. later the job was completely done. I highly recommend them.

Friendly, excellent service @ a great price! Woke up to my garage door not working, so I called 3 different repair services for estimates. Not only did they have the lowest price, they were the only ones to squeeze me in between their other appointments and come out that same day at no extra charge.

We needed a new garage door that would comply with the Florida code for hurricanes. We called Southern Garage Doors and they were very prompt at coming and showing us the different doors that were available. The price was better than we expected so we purchased one. It is a beautiful door and they did an excellent job with the installation. They even took away our old door at no extra charge and did a very thorough job of cleaning the garage when they were finished.
When the inspector came, he said they put in more screws than what was required by code. This was very comforting.
It was a pleasure doing business with someone who still believes in good old-fashioned service. I would definitely recommend Southern Garage Doors to anyone who needs a new door or service work.

I would highly recommend this father/son team. When I called and explained the problem, they gave me an idea of what it would cost. And surprisingly in todays world, after they fixed it they charged me exactly what they told me on the phone. And it was reasonable too! They are so honest and definitely know what they are doing. It was so nice to see a father/son work so well together. Both are so friendly and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I even asked them to come back and do some maintenance work on it. They also told me they would be here at 8 am and right on the dot, they were here. It's not often anymore that you can find such honest, pleasant, fair, and knowledgeable people in the home repair business. Thank you Ron and Matt!!

They did a GREAT job repairing our garage door at a reasonable cost. We called them on a Friday afternoon, sent pictures of the damage, they quoted us a price, and did the repairs on Saturday. We appreciated their hard work and would definitely call them again!

Southern Garage Doors provides excellent and prompt service.
My wife had an issue with her garage door remote and they promptly replaced her remote at a very reasonable cost.
We had another issue with the drive chain jamming up on our opener. Southern Garage Doors quickly assessed the problem and fixed the chain quickly. I would definitely recommend Southern Garage Doors to anyone!

Today Southern Garage installed our new garage door. Ron Knepp and his son were on time and very professional. They had to replace the wood surrounding the door. They did this in a timely manner and took all the trash away. And their outstanding work was done at a reasonable price. I heartily recommend them! -Ed

They were out the same day i called, fantastic service!!!

~ Christopher Baucom - Google Review

Ron & Matt are great to work with. They do what they say they are going to do when they tell you they will do it and for the price they quote. (Which is a better value than our former firm.)

~ Thomas Kenyon- Google Review

They are very responsive. Always fair with their pricing and professional to work with.

~ Justin Powell - Google Review

Called them to fix our garage door opener. They were here within 3 hours and got everything fixed. I would highly recommend them.

~ Kate DeSantis - Google Review

My garage door spring broke last night. Called several garage door companies and Southern Garage Doors was able to come out this morning at 7 am and had the lowest prices for the spring replacement. Matt was very nice, informative and professional. I would highly recommend this company to my friends and family.

~ Glenn Zimmerman - Google Review

My spring busted at 6:15 in the morning. Matt fielded my phone call at 7:05 am and scheduled up with me to repair the spring later on the same day. He arrived on time and had the job completed in a little over an hour. He even found a minor problem with a bracket and repaired it at no cost! Matt's professionalism and outstanding work ethic has earned my business for all of my future garage door needs.

~ Charlie Fiedler- Google Review

I called several companies looking for a replacement door for our business. Southern Garage Door was the only one to immediately answer the phone, they called ahead and came when they said they would. They were unable to work on our door because it is not actually a garage door but Matt was so helpful, kind and professional. I would definitely recommend this company.

~ A Google User- Google Review

Matt came out the next day, fixed the problems, lubed the hinges and programmed my truck to the garage opener. Nice honest guy and fair prices.

~ J. White - Google Review

Southern Garage is amazing! They came out the day I called them and called me before they were arriving. Installed my new unit, sensors & keypad in about an hour and went over all the details & answered my questions without making me feel "clueless".
Their price for their work was very reasonable & less than the other companies I called. I would absolutely use them again & will refer them to friends. It's so nice to get honest people who do great work..5 stars all the way!

Super to work with - had a broken spring on my door replaced the same morning I called. Ron was great. Appreciated that they had the price on their website - no surprises, no quotes, just honest work done well!!!!

~ David Underwood - Google Review

Matt responded right away to my web request and we scheduled an appointment when it was good for me very easily. They are the only company I could find that actually listed their price to fix my broken torsion spring on the website, which is way more transparent than the others. Not salesy or pushy at all. Ron and Matt came out and did great work in a short amount of time. Plus they are a nice family run business. I definitely would recommend them.

~ Steven Wynne - Google Review

This company is the best in my opinion. They were able to do early next day service of our garage door quickly at reasonable cost. Door jammed and stranded car in garage and came out first thing in morning to fix. Second job they have done for us and am very impressed plus its small family owned keeping money out of big parent companys.

~ Donald Kruse  - Google Review

We had a spring break in our garage door opener on this Sunday night which prevented us from opening our garage door. Called Southern Garage Doors and spoke to Ron at 8:45am on Monday morning and they were here at 10am to repair our door. I highly recommend Ron and Matt for their prompt and courteous service, you cannot go wrong using this locally owned business.

~ Walter P- Google Review

These guys(Southern Garage Doors) came on time, fixed my garage door(one of the springs snapped).
They charge about half for what other companies would. The owner said: "We treat people the same way we want to be treated". Good folks. Wish there were more people like these guys.

~ Albert Khovyev- Google Review

Excellent Service. They arrived promptly to access my problem. Quoted a price to fix, which was very reasonable.  Father/Son very professional.  Would highly Recommend them.

Ron and Matt just left after replacing our 17 year old garage door opener with a LiftMaster Elite Series unit.  The new opener is almost silent in operation and is working great.  Besides the quality product Southern Garage Doors, Inc. installed for us, we were extremely impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of Ron and Matt. Both took the time to ensure we were comfortable with the new unit and highlighted the offer to reach out to them with any questions or concerns on the job and/or unit.  For those fellow Lakewood Ranch home owners looking to replace or upgrade your original builder openers I highly recommend Southern Garage Doors Inc. Regards,

You can't ask for better service, quality, timeliness, or professionalism! This father and son team is the best!
