For 30 years, Diane Garcia and her family have made life easier for garage owners in Albuquerque. With their company, Garage Doors by Nestor, Garcia and the reliable staff have worked on thousands of garage doors throughout the city, on issues small and large. “We’ve been doing this for a long time, and will continue to be here for years,” says Garcia.

One of their most popular products is the LiftMaster garage door opener that allows homeowners to monitor their garage doors even when they’re not at home, via smartphone. The MyQ technology of the LiftMaster openers lets owners close their doors from afar. “If someone has to go into your house and you want to open the garage door for them, it’s as easy as pressing a button. It can really come in handy and is also a good security feature,” explains Garcia. The newest models of LiftMaster garage door openers will be enabled with the MyQ Wi-Fi technology to ensure you can control your garage door from anywhere.

For even more efficiency, a LiftMaster garage door opener has a built-in light that can be connected to a hall ceiling light or lamp to automatically turn on and off when the garage door light does.

Whether you opt for advanced technology for your garage or not, the crew at Garage Doors by Nestor will help you find the perfect solution for any need. “We have the expertise, products and staff to provide our customers with the latest in garage doors and openers,” says Chris Umstead, senior technician, “Add to that a team of highly qualified technicians and expert installers, and you’ve got a full range of services including replacements, installations and same-day repairs,” he notes.

Garage Doors by Nestor offers a wide variety of choices for those looking for a new garage door. From conventional designs that add polish and ease to any home, to customizable looks for more specific visions, this business has you covered. “We have many styles and colors. And, with the Amarr brand, we now offer what is called a color zone, available for most residential steel sectional doors. Amarr has partnered with paint company Sherwin Williams, so you can paint your garage door from a list of 500 snap dry paint colors,” says Garcia.

In fact, with each in-home consultation, Garage Doors by Nestor uses technology that allows you to see what your garage door will look like with different colors. With a quick upload of a photo, you can see your garage door in a number of looks. “You can test out different styles without the fuss of installation,” says Garcia.

They have one of the hottest products in the industry are insulated steel doors that give the appearance of having a wood grain finish, offering even more design and structural options. “Another benefit of Amarr doors is that they come in single-, double- and triple-layer construction, each with a different level of energy efficiency and noise control,” explains Umstead.

He also recommends yearly maintenance to keep your garage door in excellent shape. During a maintenance visit, a qualified technician will balance, adjust and lubricate the door, inspect it for potential concerns, and alert the homeowner to potential issues before they escalate into a problem. If you do end up having issues with your garage, Garage Doors by Nestor can help by quickly coming out and giving you a free estimate on any work they recommend. Often, any needed repairs can be done that same day, notes Umstead.

“Some of the most common problems homeowners have with their garage doors are spring-related issues,” says Garcia. “Springs are especially vulnerable when the weather turns cooler.” The company can upgrade parts on your garage door to make it run more smoothly and quietly, replace bottom seals that have been damaged, and replace the vinyl molding around the door.

The majority of the work by Garage Doors by Nestor comes from repeat customers and from referrals,” says Garcia. But the company has also acquired new customers thanks to an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. One satisfied customer writes of a recent job, “I was extremely pleased with the quality of the work and the friendly and professional attitude of your employees. This is the reason we keep coming back when we have need of services for our garage doors.”

Umstead says there are good reasons why people keep coming back to work with Garage Doors by Nestor. “It’s pretty simple,” he says. “The process of the customer calling and getting us out there is seamless. We show up on time every time — we give them only a 30-minute window, when other companies will give them a much broader window. We warranty all the work we do, which is something vital and a lot of our competitors don’t do.”

“Finally,” says Umstead, “we take pride in our service.”
