Review by in Brentwood, TN
I called Cliff at 4pm, he was at my house the next morning at 9am. I was expecting a multi day door replacement but Cliff said he could fix it in a half hour. It runs better than it did before my ‘accident’. I highly recommend this guy. Honest, quality work.

Review by in Antioch, TN
Unbelievable doesn't even begin to describe my experience. From the time I discovered the spring was broken until the repair was complete took less than 90 minutes. Provided me with a full inspection of the unit, greased and lubricated all moving pieces (something I didn't even ask for -- this is what it means to go above and beyond), and of course replaced the broken spring. I had already researched the average cost for this repair and knew the quote he provided me to be both reasonable and fair. The Garage Door Protocol will certainly be recommended to all of my neighbors, and I would recommend anyone considering their services to not look any further. Thank you very much for being great at what you do.
Response by The Garage Door Protocol: Thank you sir, much appreciated!

Cliff did such a great job at the house we sold fixing the door there. So when we had trouble with the door at the new house he was the only one I called. A really nice young man.

Cliff helped me the day before with an issue I was having with the door and quickly showed up the next day to install a new door and opener. He did a fantastic job and canâ t believe I waited this long to change out the old door and opener. Much safer now

Cliff did a fantastic job. I called him late on a Saturday evening and he showed up first thing Sunday to fix out door. He worked quickly, efficiently, and charged a fair price. I highly recommend him for any of your garage door needs.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
