Testimonials



Hello Fred:

My wife and I would like to thank you for the excellent work you did on our custom garage door.  You helped us design a door that complimented our mid century modern ranch home perfectly.  I appreciated your feedback and communication throughout the entire process - from design to follow up.

Thanks again,
Marc 


I had two double garage doors replaced.  Before it was just a shitty job by the builder, very minimal brackets and not done nicely.  Radford came to replace them.  They put extra strong brackets up, created a perfect seal, put amazing doors up which exceeded my expectations.
I originally had Costco give me a quote and Radford not only matched Costo, but they offered me a higher quality door and better installation materials than what Costco offered.  In 10 years if I ever need new doors I'd use them again and recommend them to anyone.

We bought our garage door from Radford garage door. The quality was excellent with a reasonable pricing. Fred is a very professional, concerned, and caring gentleman. He would not promise what he may not be able to deliver. We really enjoyed his honesty and responsiveness. The doors take sometime to get but they are perfect and worth it. We found him to be responsive, responsible, prompt, easy to reach, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for a great job.

Radford Doors was recommended to me by an established general contractor whom I trust.  A visit to their small office and a survey of the samples they carry indicated to me that they could provide all levels of garage doors from inexpensive steel or fiberglass doors to quality wood doors.  We were looking for quality and had an unusual size, so Fred (the owner/manager) helped me with the design and provided sample photographs of wood doors to choose from.

The door arrived generally on schedule, and was installed on the date promised.  A small problem occurred the following day, and Fred came out immediately and summoned another crew for the very next day to fix the problem.  We now love our door.

No contractor (especially specialty contractors like Radford) can do perfect work at all times when working in existing spaces, and customers who expect perfection can sometimes be disappointed. 

However, I would strongly recommend Radford if you are seeking a quality door and an owner/manager (Fred) who cares and follows up..

We remodeled our house and added a garage. We ordered our new garage door through Radford Doors.
It was a custom door, wood and glass.
The service from Radford Doors was excellent. They spent time answering all our questions and helping us design the door. We had a tight space for the garage door, so door and panel size was critical.
Radford worked with our framers, gave us a wide range of door and price options, and did a beautiful job installing the door.

Radford Doors knows their product, and provided very professional and friendly service.

Great customer service!!! We went to the store and they let us take swatches/samples of the garage door finishes, so that we could make a better decision of would color and style garage door we wanted. Fred came out to our house to do a walk through and helped us make our final decision on which door would fit the best for the design of our house. He went over every option and the cost with each option. We decided to go with a faux wood door and a more expensive side motor, which I highly recommend! My daughter asked a ton of questions specifically about the specs of the door/motor and he was able to answer every question! There were only 1 or 2 questions that he didn't know the answer, but he called the manufacturing company and found the answer for us! It was a simple and painless one day installation. The best part is that the installer noticed a couple of dents on one of the panels and told us. He then informed us that he would be back to replace those panels free of charge. It was quite refreshing to work with a company that is very concerned about the final product and the customer. The installer could have simply not said anything and let us deal with the problem. Thanks Radford!
We wish we had more garages, so that we could hire them again to install garage doors! 
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this COMPANY!!!! We will definitely use them again in the future if need be!


When we decided to purchase our Canyon Ridge garage door and a LiftMaster, Elite Series 8500 wall mount garage door opener, we contacted three companies among which was Radford.  It was very easy to decide who should be getting our business for two principal reasons. The first was Mr. Fred Lou, who exhibited admirable professionalism, and the second reason was the very competitive price which was far lower than the prices of the other two competing companies. 

Our garage was built in 1929 with walls and a door opening that did not meet today’s building standards. 
We needed a company that was willing to work with our contractor who was responsible for updating our garage. 
Mr. Lou spent a considerable amount of time explaining the specifications and the adjustments required for the door opening. As well, he exhibited a great deal of patience and made a couple of visits to the job site to insure that the door installation would go smoothly.  We found Mr. Lou both knowledgeable and willing to take the time to address our concerns.  The final result was the easy installation of a beautiful garage door.

As for the price, Radford’s price was $$$ less than one competitor and $$ less than the other competitor. 
  
I would gladly recommend Radford Doors to our friends and neighbors.

I just had my Overhead Garage door installed by your Technician David.   Professional work.    We are so satisfied with the installation and more importantly the color was PERFECT.
Thank you for your professional service.

Excellent Service by Radford

Folks:
On 6/13/13 your employee, Justin, serviced my garage door which was making so much noise that it was embarrassing. He added a bunch of screws, tightened all of them, and lubricated the whole thing.  It is so quiet now I cannot believe it.
 
Please pass my thanks to Justin. He is a nice guy and I will recommend your company to anyone who needs their garage door serviced properly and at a reasonable price.

Thank you very much for everything- they look wonderful! I was so thrilled to see them up and meant to email you a big thank you.

To everyone at RADFORD DOORS:

Thank you for the excellent repair service on my garage door. From my initial contact with Valerie to the professional completion of the repair work by your technician Justin, I am one happy and satisfied customer. You are a standout over several companies that I called for information, price, and being on time as promised with the correct parts on hand. Justin showed me the broken parts and the brand new replacement parts then proceeded with the professional installation and repair of my garage door. I will be very proud to recommend your company to family, friends, and neighbors for their garage door needs.
Again, thank you for the excellent service.

Dear Fred,

This past Friday our garage doors were installed.  I want to commend you on making the process so easy for us and for far exceeding our expectations.  I know that I am a fussy, demanding customer, and your attention to detail made the installation perfect!  Every aspect of the installation was thoroughly professional.  Your workman left the garage spotless.  I am totally delighted with our new doors. 
Thank you very much.

Hi Fred
I want to thank you for your personalized service on my garage door selection and installation. Although my builder supplied existing door was only 3 years old, it was not in keeping with the quality of the rest of the home. A garage door is many times the largest but most neglected visual architectural feature of a home’s front elevation.  I very much appreciate your aggressive pricing with a very non-aggressive sales approach. It’s refreshing to find a boutique business that offers warehouse pricing. The door looks and operates wonderfully. Your guidance in the selection of material and style was also outstanding. Please feel free to use me as a reference and to show the installed door to other prospective customers.
Warmest Regards,

Duane Danielsen




Dear Valerie,
Thanks so much for a job well done on my new garage door. 

This company gets an A++ from me.  Starting with their customer service phone representative, Valerie, who is really pleasant and very courteous, and emanates an incredibly positive vibe, to the estimator who arrived punctually, and quickly assessed what was needed and what it would cost, over to the courteous and efficient garage door installer who professionally installed my new garage door in an hour less time than I expected -- all in all I was blown away by their professionalism, courtesy, reasonable prices, and desire to serve the customer as best they can.  Thank you, Radford, for a job VERY well done!

“Radford Doors was able to do what no other garage door in San Diego was able to do. Fred and Valerie were extremely professional and fun to work with. They made sure that I got exactly what I wanted when all of their competition said that it could not be done. Radford Doors went out of their way to make the Impossible… Possible. I would highly recommend Radford Doors to anybody that is looking for a garage door company they can count on.”
Happy Holidays!

To whom it may concern:

I wanted to write and thank Radford Doors for the great service provided on the installation of our new garage door.
Radford Doors came recommended from a co-worker who had recently had her garage door serviced by the Radford team.
The Radford representative was on time and a pleasure to interact with. The door was several hundred dollars cheaper than competitive estimates for a similar (if not exact) product. The price was right! Also, they came out two days later whereas the competition quoted me a somewhat convoluted process.
The installation was flawless! The technician is experienced and efficient. He was in and out within the quoted amount of time as there were no complications. He installed and cleaned up and left behind a great looking product. I know it is "just" a garage door, but we have waited quite a while for the door and finally purchasing it and having it be such a painless process just made it that much better. 
Thanks again!

Jorge



I am very happy with my new garage doors and and very happy with the service that Radford Doors provided. I have had several positive comments about the doors from my neighbors. I believe that Fred worked hard to provide the best price possible and I would recommend Radford Doors.
Thank you,
Brad Woodall



It looks fabulous, my neighbors LOVE it.
Fred, Just wanted to let you know the door was installed today on schedule.  The guys did an amazing job.  Rather than notching the studs, they cut a tiny saw line where the rail goes and it fits in like a glove.  Thank you so much for taking the time to make numerous site visits and being willing to work with my quirky project.  I know that this door was not standard.  Other companies said is simply couldn’t be done.  You not only did it, but it looks awesome.  The door itself is beautiful, the motor is unbelievably quiet and my neighbors are all drooling over the sleek little clicker.  I am thrilled with the quality and service (Valerie is a hoot), not to mention your price was well below the quote I got from the membership big box store!  Amazing.

 Dear Fred Just want to tell you that our doors are beautiful and what a great experience we had dealing with Radford. We appreciate the time and effort you took on creating our vision for the perfect garage door. We felt so comfortable and confident with your company. The installers were so polite and very informative extremely professional. Competion is high these days and your fairness and honesty was our deciding factor. We made the right move and will recommend you to anyone who is looking to improve the look of their home.

I am writing to say thank you for a job well done. The installation was done ahead of schedule and it looks great. The SOMMER opener is living up to its reputation as the quietest opener on the market. Again, thanks for a rapid and quality job.

Dear Radford Doors.. 
I wanted to share with you how much I am in love with my new garage door that was just installed by Radford Doors.  I was referred to you after my seeking a number of estimates shopping for a wood carriage house garage door.  You came out promptly and I was impressed by your knowledge, being particular, and most of all, by the price of the door.
Many of the neighbors have remarked of the beauty and of the quietness of the door system.  I know many of my neighbors will be in touch with you!   I would highly recommend you to my family and friends and neighbors!

Dear Fred: 
We were first impressed with the detailed proposal we received from you for the garage door.  Quite different from what we had previously experienced.  And it continued from there.  We were impressed with how great your crew were.  They were polite, answered all our questions, and left the garage in perfect condition.  Furthermore, all appointments were done on time. We are very happy with our new garage door.  
Thank you for taking such good care of us.

Dear Fred,  
we are writing a review of your fine service this weekend. When we were just about to leave on a trip, our garage door would not go up or down.  Radford doors and you were wonderful to walk us through the problem on the phone.  We have relied on your help and maintenance for years. Now we see that the service is better than ever.  We are truly grateful.

 Dear Fred and Crew,
Thank you so very much for a very hassle free experience.  I love the doors and they are the talk of the neighborhood.  They really have given my house a wow factory.
After much hassle with previous outlets I contacted Radford Doors.  My experience was wonderful.   Fred's years of experience and patience helped me extremely to get exactly what I wanted in a timely manner and done 100 % correctly for a very reasonable price.  Radford Doors only installs correctly and does not do anything in an inferior manner.  I am extremely satisfied with every aspect of my purchase. My home, thanks to Fred's guidance now has real curb appeal. 
Sincerely,
Linda, Rancho San Diego


 
My new door was installed on Monday the 29th. I should have taken this step 20 years ago, the difference is that great. The best part was experiencing the craftsmanship of the technician. His skill prompted me to ask ”how many doors have you installed?” He thought for a minute and said “3500” That can explain why his work is of so high quality. I have never witnessed a more conscientious worker.  When he left, my garage was cleaner than when he arrived and I have a perfectly installed door.  Not expected and most appreciated. 
Nate Brogan


Working with you and your staff was a pleasant experience and the entire job was completed at a level of quality that has enhanced our property both in looks and value. Your finish team did a beautiful job with the stain and installation. I’ve never heard doors close to smoothly. 
I would recommend you and your products to anyone considering installing new garage doors.

You also appreciate your friendliness and desire to be "on our side".

Radford's management is top notch. We had a less than satisfactory service call with a Radford technician that left us disappointed. I wrote of our experience and was quickly contacted by Radford management to discuss. The Radford representative met at our home to discuss further and inspect what had been done. Radford was extremely apologetic for our experience and it was obvious throughout the conversation that Radford has very high standards that he felt were not met. Radford went above and beyond to try to rectify our experience, and they succeeded. After this set of events I have no doubt that Radford is an excellent company and would trust them to work on our home again, and that the work done would be excellent.

We recently had two garage doors installed by Radford. The doors are of highest quality and their appearance is outstanding. The installers had to overcome a few unique challenges, but did so with a high degree of professionalism. 
We are very happy with Radford and would recommend Radford to those who prefer to deal with a reputable 
company who stands behind their product.

I did my research, like everybody else, for new garage doors and called three companies to come out, measure and give me a quote. Two of the companies sent people who in less than ten minutes, measured, wrote a few notes and called me days later with pricing. RADFORD's estimator came out and measured. (Good first impression -- and it didn't stop there!) Fred was very precise with each calculation -- measuring each existing opening across/up/down/sideways, etc. -- and made copious notes. He asked questions. I asked questions. He took his time with me. Jennifer faxed me a quote later that day. I had a few questions -- the owner again talked with me. This initial encounter with the company gave me such a good feeling. I scheduled the installation. The crew showed up on that scheduled day -- another nice surprise! They were very experienced, efficient and did a beautiful job! To summarize, you get it all with RADFORD -- Professionalism. Experience. Integrity. This is a company I love to refer and have many times. 

Thank you all at RADFORD!

Fred,
No words can describe the happiness we have with our new garage door. It improved the appearance of our house 100 %. I believe the name of the installer is Carlos. I was really surprised when he showed up alone to install the door. He did a fantastic job. Not only did he finish at the time he said, he also cleaned up and made sure I fully understood the way everything worked. Hopefully all of you employees are like him.
Please feel free to use any pictures you took and also feel free to have potential customers call us for recommendations.
We are extremely happy that we chose Radford Doors over the other garage door companies that gave us quotes.

Thank you,
Dom & Sue Tubolino


Radford Overhead Doors Thanks Fred, Carlos and Art. Just had your beautiful garage doors installed today. All went smoothly with expert installation.

I will be more than pleased to recommend you to anyone in need of your products.  Thank you,

To Whom It May Concern,
I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that I love my new steel, roll up garage door. The oak wood grade beautiful, and the two windows with the wrought iron design are a gorgeous feature.
The technician who came to install the door did a wonderful job. He was very meticulous, ensuring everything was cleaned up all the debris from the installation. He was great! 
Thanks again for a beautiful new garage door. I’m very happy with the product and the service provided.

Hello Radford Team,
  I want to express my appreciation for the level of professionalism, quality workmanship, and great attitude of everyone I have worked with at Radford doors.  Your estimator Fred was easy to work with, your installer arrived on time the day of installation and did a fantastic job.  Then I contacted your office to help me with a broken door at my rental property, and did a great repair job.
Your pricing is fair, people are knowledgeable, and quality of work is outstanding. 
I will refer friends and family to Radford Doors whenever I hear they are looking to repair or replace their garage doors.
 
Thanks Again,

 Dear Sir or Madam,
I wanted to write this letter of apperception to thank you for your outstanding service in installing my new overhead garage door. The single piece wooden door that was replaced was the original door installed my home 37 years ago!
The original door has never worked properly and I have had five other garage door repair firms repair and maintain the door over the years-but none have been able to completely fix the door. When your ace team of Justin and Russell arrived, they were able to fix ALL the mechanical problems with the door for the first time in history. The only thing they couldn’t correct was that the door was getting severely warped. It was at that point that I decided to replace the door under the capable and expert hands of Justin and Russell for installation.
The installation was performed on 19 May in a completely professional manner. Justin and Russell arrived exactly on time and exceeded my expectations during the installation process. I actually had a 2x4 wooden storage brace that was in the way of the installation that I said could be removed. Instead of removing it, they cut the 2x4 and reinstalled the bracket so that I would not lose my storage brace! The installation was performed in less then two-and-a-half hours with great precision. I was very pleased and surprised to see how tight the seal are around the garage door giving it excellent insulation and security. The door opens and closes very smoothly and quietly on the new rails. Cleanup after the job was spotless and they removed my old door and hardware.
Thank you again for the excellent service in installing my new garage door. I know I’ll be happy with it for years to come and if I do need follow on service, I’ll be calling you again.

Sincerely,
James Pullen”

The Radford Doors experience was outstanding. 
It started with Fred, the Sales Person that came to my house and took the time to show me and my wife different door styles and colors, not from the catalog, but actual small Door samples. Fred was very patient as we made the selection, and unlike other Garage Door companies that suggested moving the wall mounted cabinets, Fred suggested using higher rails that go over the cabinets. The price was a lot more competitive than the large department store, and more competitive than the company that is always advertising on the radio. The 2 installers were very experienced and knowledgeable, and the door replacement experience was very smooth, and the door looks great.
My overall rating is OUTSTANDING. I will definitely recommend Radford Doors to my friends. 

Regards,

Hello,
I wish to send our appreciation to the entire process of choosing, purchasing and especially the professionalism of technician.
As you will recall our home had a wooden door purchased and installed from Radford 55 years ago!
We liked the quality and how well it lasted so much we chose Radford again for our updated door. Your installer was very efficient and professional during the entire installation process. 

Thanks for a job well done,

There are many garage door companies in San Diego but none like Radford Overhead Doors when it comes to personal service, competitive pricing and exceeding expectations.  We have been so pleased with our Clopay Grand Harbor door and we have already referred several the people to Radford.  We have had neighbors actually stop while walking their dogs just to ask about our Clopay garage door.  Everyone is impressed in how it looks, the opaque glass and how quietly the Chamberlain Liftmaster Jackshaft opener operates.  When I show people the side mount and how easily it is to use the space in our rafters with the absence of a center mounted opener and track people are speechless...perhaps even a little envious.
Fred and Jennifer are tremendous and their service is reason enough to be a customer for life.

Fred, 
A few days ago I purchased a garage door from you and I'm really happy with it. Wanted you to know that after close inspection of the work Carlos your door installer did a great job and was very personable.

Just figured someone should know.
Thanks again,
Keith Finch


 

Thank you Radford Doors for your awesome installation on my garage door. Everything that was promised was done with professionalism. Valerie at the office returned my call promptly and set me up an appointment. Justin came out and assessed my needs and gave me estimation. He was very professional and gave me some options that I hadn't even considered. Carlos was the installer that I did not meet, but my wife did and she was very impressed with his courteous attitude. I came home that evening and found my garage completely swept, plastic tarp folded, and all the old parts hauled away. Thanks Carlos for the way you made the wiring straight and tight with no excess and mounting the control panels at a good height. All of you work great as a team keeps up the outstanding job. It has been wonderful delivering your mail to you guys and even better knowing you are experts in your field.
