What Our Clients Say

Had a wonderful experience with this company. Received an appointment time quickly, and appreciated the phone call that the technician was on the way. Steve was very knowledgeable and professional and had our door fixed fast! He took time to answer all of my questions and explained the safety features that I didn’t know about.

We had a new garage door installed along with a new (replacement) lift motor. The installer was on time, professional and worked non-stop until the job was done. He cleaned up everything and was meticulous in touching up tiny spots on the door as well as windows. Highly recommend Island Overhead Doors in Nanaimo

I had a wonderful experience at Island Overhead. In spite of being closed, she offered to help me. I had a garage door opener that wasn’t working. She generously took it apart put in a new battery then checked that it worked. When I thanked her and asked what I owed, this lovely lady said with a smile ... no charge. This made my day.

Our Recent Projects

A new or replacement garage door is always an investment. Large, heavy, and bulky, they are also an expense that takes consideration. We often get calls from customers asking questions about how to install an overhead door themselves, due to the concern over garage door installation cost. We understand, and we always do our best to provide information regarding the process, but we also offer to every potential customer a free quote for install services. Garage doors are hard to handle and easy to damage or get injured by when the person attempting the install does not have the knowledge, proper tools, or finesse and brawn to handle these cumbersome additions to your home or business. It also takes experience to properly set up a door for proper, flawless function depending on the construction materials it is mounted into, how it faces, and other factors that determine its proper functioning and ease of use. A door or gate of any kind should work each time, smoothly, without a thought or tussle. All our finished installations work with ease, getting you in and out or securing your inventory, every time.

Our garage door prices are very competitive and we offer the best quality lines we can locate for your application. We also have custom door design and engineering available like Chicago Best Garage Services, if your project needs a special fixture.  Our installation services are very reasonable for both residential and commercial security closure doors, gates, automatic openers, aluminum fence, sliding grilles, steel roll down shutters and doors, and other products we offer. Call us or send in our contact form for a free quote, and be pleasantly surprised how inexpensive it is to avoid damage, injury, and frustration wrestling a door or gate into place. You will be glad you did when it is so easy to move and use without a second thought.

Quality Garage Door Repairs at Reasonable Prices

To operate in a variety of weather conditions and over years of use, a quality overhead door needs occasional maintenance and the rare but necessary repair. While we carry a full line of garage door parts for the do-it-yourself enthusiast, we do ask you to talk to us first about what your door is doing or not doing. Many overhead garage door repair projects are simpler than they appear, such as dead batteries in a remote, but others really do require someone trained to diagnose and repair the problem properly. Garage doors are heavy and have parts that can cause injury to the unsuspecting person who does not understand the tension on cables, springs, chain drives, or the electronics involved in the units. Our garage door repair Nanaimo knows is the most reasonably priced in the region.  We want to keep you safe, and your door and its components intact, saving an expensive replacement if at all possible. Call and schedule now for lubrication and system check on your door, or for affordable needed repairs. It can save money, time, and frustration, and our quotes are free.
