I had an emergency issue with a garage door stuck half open. I called the first place that came up on a google search and they came out. They spent 3.5 hours trying to fix it, got the door sort of working, to the point that it would open, but only... about 3/4 of the way, but it would not open all the way. He stated that was as good as it could get with the broken parts and then recommended a full replacement of the rod/spring system for over $850, which they would have to come back to do another day.
I called BlackHawk Garage door company and told them I needed a replacement rod/spring system and was looking for an estimate. They said it would be around $450 to replace, but would come out and look at it to be sure. Jeremy from BlackHawk Garage Door came out. He explained everything he was going to do and it took him 15 minutes to straighten my garage door on the tracks, fix the improperly wound cables and set my garage door working 100% properly again. He explained everything, including that my garage door setup was old and would probably need replacing eventually, but should use it until that day actually came, which was not today. Not only that, but the cost was over $300 LESS than what BlackHawk would have gotten if they replaced it, but they have integrity and did not recommend an unnecessary repair. In total, I saved over $700 by calling BlackHawk Garage Door.
5 STARS and I would have given more stars if I could. Highly recommend Jeremey and BlackHawk Garage Door. If they can't come the same day, it's worth the wait. They are busy because they are the best. Don't go with the first company that comes up on Google. Call BlackHawk Garage Door and save yourself the trouble and the money of using the other guys.read more

I started having issues with my old garage door openers a few years ago, each winter their performance got worse and worse, until finally one just died. I called several companies to get a quote over the phone. Blackhawk came in less than any... other companies I spoke with by over $100. Tom was a blast to converse with, asking detailed questions regarding the garage door openers I had at the time. Nate called me to schedule an install in a timely manner and when Tom stated her would. A pleasure to speak with and set up an appointment. I was expecting to wait a week at least. When he booked a tentative appointment for 2 days later ......I was elated. It was the coldest week so far this winter and I was so sick of parking outside in the subzero weather! Kyle and Colten showed up on time and both had smiles on their faces and were here and gone within 3 hours. Understand, they had to replace springs and had to install overhead rails etc as the previous opener was a wall mount type opener. They completely cleaned up their mess, briefly went over programming the new openers and were on their way. Thanks guys! You all rock!!!read more

In fact, within two minutes after Brent completed... the job, a neighbor drove past our home, rolled down her window and shouted to us, "I love your new garage doors." I would highly recommend Black Hawk.read more
