I highly recommend Alan Conkling
I highly recommend Alan Conkling and his team. They have never failed to impress me in regard to their customer service and professionalism. I was having problems with my garage door the other day (my door was not closing properly), upon calling them, Alan advised me that he could probably fix my issue by talking me through the light repair over the phone. Fix it he did! In minutes my door was operating properly….no service call or charge!! In this day and age, it’s awesome to see someone with such strong business ethics. We are customers for life and would never go anywhere else for our garage door needs. Thanks Alan

My wife and I are very pleased
The installer, John, arrived at the designated time, answered all of my questions, cleaned up thoroughly, and reviewed how to operate and maintain the new garage door. In addition, the owner of the company, Alan Conkling, participated in the installation. My wife and I are very pleased with the services provided by Alan Conkling Garage Doors.

Job Well Done
A job well done and very pleased with the results. Both of our springs were broken at the top (should have called after the first one broke!) and both cables were disconnected. On Tuesday, Mike recommended a comparable 16×7 door with much better construction and insulation to replace our inoperable door. It was a good match for our existing white single bay door. John and Alan installed the door exactly when scheduled the following Friday. They did a great job and my garage doesn’t sound like a drawbridge anymore! Thanks, Alan!

Yesterday morning I called your office and requested someone to come to my home to repair a broken cable on my garage door. Whoever answered the phone was polite and explained what would happen when a service person arrived. The service man called in advance of his arrival and gave me his ETA, and then arrived on time. He introduced himself (I think his name is Jay) and explained that he would inspect the garage door and let me know what repairs were needed. After his inspection, he explained exactly what repairs were needed, how long it would take and how much the job would cost. He asked I if wanted him to do the work and I said yes. He went about the work immediately and was finished in the time he estimated. He then showed me what repairs he had done. I must tell you, this was one of the most enjoyable service calls I’ve ever experienced for any repair work I’ve ever had done at my home. Jay was polite, friendly and professional. If he is representative of your entire staff, you have much to be proud of. I will not hesitate for one moment to refer you to any of my friends or neighbors who may need a new garage door or a garage door repair. Joe Gatto 40 Casey Rd Holland, Pa 18966
Thanks to Alan for helping me over the phone with my garage door. It was an easy fix but I did not know that – thank goodness Alan did! I really appreciate his willingness to diagnose the problem (the sensors) and his friendly advice. It saved me a service call. Definitely would recommend him.
I just wanted to say how pleased we were with your service, Jay had gone over everything and took care of our problem without any issues. You should be very proud of his work quality and professionalism. You have new customers for life. Thanks again for the prompt service.

Alan responded immediately
Alan responded immediately to a question I had regarding my garage door not working over the phone. He was able to troubleshoot the problem and fixed the issue right away without a visit. I would gladly use Alan’s services in the future and recommend him to others. Jason

Called this morning
Called this morning and had a technician at my house by one o’clock. Jay was very knowledgeable and explained everything that was needed to fix my garage door opener. I agreed to move forward with the work and he was done in 45 minutes. It was a pleasure doing business with Alan Conkling’s Garage Doors, both on the phone and with his tech. I would definitely recommend your company to others. Thank you very much for the great service and professionalism. 3/28/2011
Here is my testimonial. Questions/Comments: FANTASTIC SERVICE! I just wanted to tell you how pleased I was with your company and Jay. You met your promise of getting out the same day I called for service and Jay was extremely professional, friendly and qualified. Your pricing was very fair for the work performed and there was no pressure to buy a new door which would have been easy to do and honestly I was expecting the “hard sell” because I know I have poor quality doors. Thank you for fast, honest, professional service!
Nice surprise! Spring broke. Saw Larry’s referral from 1/30/2011 and decided to call. Mike was out in less than 2 hrs, fixed it in 30 minutes at a reasonable price. Highly recommend!
Thanks for getting me out of a jam
Thanks for getting me out of a jam when I couldn’t program my garage door opener to my new car. You patiently talked me through it over the phone & saved me a service call! I’ve been a customer since 2005 and over the years you have rebuilt three garage doors and have been availbale for any follow ups. Thanks for the great continued service.
I Had a great experience with Alan today.
I Had a great experience with Alan today. It’s Sunday and I left a message for Alan thinking I would get a call back tomorrow. Alan called me back within minutes. The best part of the story though is yet to come. My call’s intent was to get Alan out to my house on Monday to check my malfunctioning garage door opener, but to my surprise Alan said he could talk me through the repair instead. Within minutes he had diagnosed the problem, explained how to fix it and asked me to call him back after I had performed the suggested repairs. Alan’s advice worked perfectly and the door is now working better than it has in years. I stand corrected, the best part of this story is that it didn’t cost me a thing!
Hello Alan, When my garage door was literally dangling,
Hello Alan, When my garage door was literally dangling, I was very fortunate to have found your website. Jay was excellent and I recommend him and your company to anyone seeking quality service that they can trust. I appreciate your quick response to my garage door problem. Jay arrived promptly and assessed the scope of service. Jay provided an estimate which I endorsed and he quickly made the required repairs using state of the art replacement parts. My garage door is now quieter than when it was new. Jay then reviewed his service with us and responded to our questions with regards to ongoing maintenance of our garage door. Thank you for your rapid service (within hours) on one of the coldest days of the year and thank you for Jay! The Dougherty’s
the next day and that the service
Called and the phone was answered right away. They told me they would be out the next day and that the service call was $40. The guy on the phone was nice and you could tell he knew what he was talking about. When I expressed concern that they would need to replace the door opener, he said “Don’t worry, we can fix it.” Next thing I know I get a call 45 minutes later telling me they can be there in 45 minutes (5:30pm on a Friday night. UNHEARD OF.Mike was here 30 minutes later and the door was fixed 45 minutes after that. Reasonable price, prompt service, great customer service.What else could you ask for January 08, 2011 by Kevin G.,
diagnosed the problem
I appreciate your quick response to my garage door problem. Jay arrived promptly and professionly diagnosed the problem and provided a detailed estimate. I authorized the proposal and he made the repairs and explained what he had done. You can be proud of your representatives. Thanks Phil Allen Thornton
The day of installation
If you want the best quality equipment and the best service to go with it then simply call Alan Conkling garage doors. The day of installation, they were on time and got right to work. They also answered any questions I had as they were working. They cleaned up after the job was done and gave me an orientation to the new door and opener I had them install. Even when they ran into problems due to some duct work in my garage they were able to work around it in a way that did not jeopardize the quality of the install. The price for the work was very fair and I highly recommend them.
quick response and fast
I wanted to thank you and Mike for a quick response and fast, copetent service. I am so glad I found you!
REALLY did go above and beyond
I really appreciate the job you & your men did today. I told you that I had been talking to a number of other garage door installers and after having all of my questions answered, I chose you. I was glad I did. Not only were you professional and competent, but you REALLY did go above and beyond during the installation to make sure I was satisfied.
You did everything that you said you would, there were no “surprises”. I am very satisfied and will tell everyone I know that if they are having anything done regarding garage doors, they should contact you. My wife came home after you left and she was very happy. Great Job!
This is just a thank you for fixing our garage door
This is just a thank you for fixing our garage door today. Mike was very professional, did a great job and ensured my garage stayed neat and clean. We have been using your service since 2005 and very pleased – especially in the timeliness of correcting the problem. 03/27/12

I thought the technician (Mike, I think)
I thought the technician (Mike, I think) that came to service our door did a great job. He called before he came and showed up during the time slot you gave me. When he arrived he quickly diagnosed the problem and explained my options. When he was finished fixing the problem he showed me what he had done and showed me what I needed to do to maintain the door.
Overall, I was very pleased with Mike and the work he did. Thanks again for having someone come out so quickly!
Just wanted to send a note of thanks
Just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and your company, and particularly John, for the installation of my new garage door opener unit Saturday (5/8/10). John was professional, courteous and patient, and did a great job with installing the new unit, and walking through what he installed, what was included, and what I need to do to maintain it.
To Whom It May Concern:
Recently, I called Alan Conkling Garage Doors to arrange for repair of an electric garage door opener. The problem seemed unusual because the unit had full power and the electric eye safety sensors were properly aligned with fully functioning red and green lights. Rather than arrange an immediate service call, Conkling suggested we do a verbal troubleshoot. I was advised to unplug the unit from the main power source for several minutes, and then re-plug it. I was told the unit might recycle. Sure enough it worked like a charm. I was saved the expense of a repair. In these troubled economic times, it was both a blessing and an affirmation of the integrity of the company. I highly recommend using this firm for your future garage door needs.
I am writing this review as my way of thanking you
I am writing this review as my way of thanking you for your help over the phone in resolving my garage door problem:
My wife and I had a problem involving a remote control that no longer worked to open our Sears Craftsman garage door. I thought that replacing the 3 – volt battery inside the unit would solve the problem. But the garage door continued inoperable. Not knowing where to turn for help, I called Alan Conkling who proceeded on two different occasions to help us with our problem. He explained how to reprogram the remote and correctly deduced that what we needed was a new remote. I took Alan’s advice and our garage door is operating as perfectly as ever. Alan spent more than 15 minutes helping me over the phone free of charge. He was courteous, friendly, and efficient. I will not only use his service for any future garage door repair needs, but I will, without reservation, recommend his services to our neighbors and friends. THANKS AGAIN ALAN!
Thank you for taking pride in your work
Alan, thanks for returning my garage door to its well adjusted state.You knew a new opener was not the root cause and got to the bottom of the problem. Thank you for taking pride in your work – it definitely shows. Many thanks – Mike
a power outage at night
Called Alan during a power outage at night with a door that wouldn’t closed. He diagnosed the problem via FaceTime to enable me to get it down and refused any $. Honest, quality business. Highly recommend!
He took the time to explain how to set the PIN
On July 9th, 2020 I had my garage door opener replaced by Alan. He took the time to explain how to set the PIN and what not to touch. The final item was his expertise in noticing that the wrong tension spring was originally installed. After installing the new springs the door opened very smoothly. Thanks for quality work.
my wife was happy now that the door works
What a great job Alan replaced a 26+year old openerwith anew.modern one with little of no effort alone in great time.Very clean job,removed the old junker and you would never know he was there..Today my wife was happy now that the door works without a hassle and it is so so quiet. THANKS FROM BOTH OF US,PAT AND NICK
I am so very pleased with my recent dealings
I am so very pleased with my recent dealings with Alan Conkling and his entire staff. My first contact was for a repair. My garage door opened, but when I tried to close it, there was just this buzzing sound from the opener and no movement. The technician (Mike) came out to do the repair. He found the problem (a limit switch), fixed it, checked the rest of the mechanisms and was finished in no time at all. Price was very reasonable. He then took the time to explain what was going on with the opener (it is about 30 years old) and showed me some problems that would be on the horizon not only with the opener because of its age, but also with the springs and mechanisms on the door. There was no hard sell or push to have the work done now or to replace anything, but everything he said and showed me made perfect sense. About 3 weeks later I decided to call Alan and have him give me an estimate for a new door which would include new springs and mechanism. The pricing was very reasonable and I decided to replace the door and the opener to avoid having any issues down the road, especially in the middle of winter when things like that have a habit of failing. Best decision ever! I had my new door within 3 weeks (as quoted), and John and Alan did the installation. Very professional, very knowledgeable, and I am so pleased with the whole experience. I highly recommend Alan Conkling for both repairs and replacements. True customer service at its best. Thank you Alan and John and Mike!
This past weekend our torsion
This past weekend our torsion spring broke in half. Fortunately, we were on our way back into the garage as opposed to leaving. I thought about doing my own repairs, but having done some reading on the web there were too many horror stories with torsion spring accidents for me to even think about doing it myself. With the door disabled we contacted Alan immediately on Monday morning. First thing on Monday Alan told me that he would try to fit us in that afternoon. Alan set me up for the final appointment of the day. Jay came out to do the work. Jay really knows his stuff when it comes to garage doors. He was very professional and very quick with the work. He explained everything clearly, and also tested the door that was not broken. I think the door sounds better than it did when it was first installed. NICE WORK! I would recommend this company to anyone needing to service their garage door.
installed a top notch garage door
EXCELLENT SERVICE-FIVE STARS: Alan installed a top notch garage door in 2009 for us that still looks and works great today! Furthermore, after noticing on Monday evening June 17, 2019 that our garage door opener (a Sears Craftsman-not installed by Alan but by Sears in 2008) was only closing half way we eventually called Alan Conkling himself after exhausting our own remedies. After an initial call by my wife in the afternoon to advise of our issue, I contacted Alan in the evening. Alan patiently guided me over the phone to reset the sensors and then stayed on the phone to have me open and close it 3x before we ended our call. It was fixed and works like a charm again!!!! Alan provided this service over the phone saving me $$$ and he did it after normal hours at 7:20pm at night. The kind of goodwill and service that Alan provided is what differentiates his business from the larger competitors-hand down! We will never deal with anyone else on my garage door issues ever other than Alan! -Joe Romano
Alan was wonderful to speak with
I just wanted to say, THANK YOU. I prefer to use a local family owned & operated business when in need and Alan Conkling Garage Doors did not disappoint. I was very impressed with the professionalism & timely manner in which my repair was handled. Alan was wonderful to speak with and Mike was fantastic with the repair!!!! He was able to diagnosis the issue and remedy it quickly. Best, T. Murphy

Two years ago,
Two years ago, Alan, Jay and John replaced our garage door and the finished result was excellent. Last year we moved to another house and the garage doors were in bad shape. We didn’t hesitate to call Alan to replace the two garage doors in this current house. Once again, Alan, Jay and John came out to do the replacement doors and the result is outstanding. Their workmanship, product and results are consistently great.
have your company to thank for it!
My new garage door opener works terrific and it’s all thanks to your company and wonderful staff! The gentleman who came to install my opener was so nice and polite; he’s a hard-worker and dedicated to great service; he even made sure I was happy with the opener when he was done. I am loving the work that was done and have your company to thank for it! 01/24/2012
I am so pleased with the work
I think the new garage door and opener your company installed today looks amazing! I am so pleased with the work that was done and am excited to start using the garage door. All of your staff was extremely polite, professional and very knowledgeable; I would definitely recommend your services to anyone I know.
you came out to my house the same day
I was so upset when my spring broke on my garage and I had no idea who to call. I looked in the phone book and saw your company had 24 hour service, so I called. To my amazement you came out to my house the same day, diagnosed the problem and fixed it within 30 minutes of being at my house. Mike, the technician, was just great; very professional and did a beautiful job fixing the garage door. I now have you in my own personal address book for future use.
