Mountain View Doors sent a competent and professional technician to fix my garage door. I was able to get same day service at a reasonable cost. Tanner (technician) went over everything that he was going to do and asked if I had any questions. The job was completed with high standards. I highly recommend this company.

Tanner came out and revitalized my old garage door, previously known as "the Beast" but now referred to fondly as "the kitten" due to its pleasant purring sound. This was the best money I've ever spent. The visit was affordable, thorough and amazingly helpful. Tanner pointed out all of the positive aspects of my garage door system, of which I thought there were none, and gave very reasonable estimates of work that is likely to be needed in the future. He also gave me great advice on things I can do to protect and maintain the whole system. I could not be happier and I will always call these guys in the future.

From the process of getting the door ordered, to payment, and getting everything done these folks were great. Bram did a great job! Door works way better than my old one, they cleaned everything up, explained maintenance, and they even took the initiative to get better weather stripping and will be coming back to put that in. These days its always great to have a company that just wants to do the job right the first time. Would use them again without a moment of hesitation.

Aaron was quick to respond and was able to schedule the repair for the same day. Bram communicated well on when he would be arriving and thoroughly explained what repair was needed and how much it would cost. Did the repair and included a tune-up on the door making sure all components were working properly. This is the 3rd time I've used Mountain View Doors, all on different properties, and each time they have been expedient, done great work and pricing has been fair and reasonable. Do not hesitate to contact them for all your garage door needs! A+

Dylan was a great help today! He came and did a simple troubleshooting of our garage issue and reset it without needing to change out anything. He was very knowledgeable of this issue and thoroughly inspected both garage doors before he left. Would highly recommend Mountainview Doors! They installed ours about 6 yrs ago and did a wonderful job!

Tanner did a great job installing two new garage doors for us. He was very friendly and thorough in his explanation of what work he would need to do and what additional options I had with the new doors and system. He took the time to look at some other issues as well to determine if they were something that he could fix. He had the job done pretty quickly, no mess left behind, and took the time to go over all the new features and app to control the doors. Great job overall and very happy with the experience!
Mountain View Doors provided me with excellent service, expertise, and speed of installation when I needed it the most. I had a spring break on me stranding myself without my garage or anyway to open the door and with no additional parking nearby my home. I requested a quote and repair/replacement service at night and within the next morning they called me first thing, provided me with excellent options for repair/replacement, had a technician come out same day and I was able to replace my entire garage door the next day by 4PM at an Extremely good price which included all service and installation and tax compared to whole sale market prices. The door is high quality, met my HOAs color and look guidelines, was installed extremely well and the very friendly and professional technician also was able to answer any questions or concerns I had. They also provide great warranties on service and parts to give customers peace of mind and confidence. If you need fast, affordable help for anything garage related, go no further and give them a call If you need a beautifully done, high-quality, but reasonable costing new door, go no further and give them a call. The have earned my respect and money for the next 10 years!
