Great American Door & Screen

I am a new local garage door company that's taking a foothold here in San Diego. I am licensed, bonded and insured. I will be opening a showroom in the near months ahead. You will be able to come and touch, feel and see how smooth our doors and screens operate. But you won’t be able to hear them due to they are made to be very quiet. The only way a large 16' x 7' metal door can be quiet is if it is built stronger, with thicker metal, to stop flexing and precision built hinges and rollers to roll quietly smooth. Sounds expensive? Maybe, but that would make me no different than the others and I'm not taking that path, I do not have an office for you to come and see. My office is my truck. That's the only way I can keep the prices down here in California. I do have a storage facility to house my product. I can set you up with the most basic to the most glamorous garage door systems out there. I have everything needed to repair your garage door or opener using nothing but quality

Review by in Carlsbad, CA
We pre-paid Home Depot on installation and waited for 2 weeks for someone to contact us. No one ever called, even repeated leaving message on the contact phone for help. When we entered our need on Home Advisor, 2 contractors emailed us back. After we picked Great American Door & Screen, he came to our house within 1 hour and finished the installation in 2 hours. I am very satisfied.
Response by Great American Door & Screen: Thank you Chee-Mei, glad I could help.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
