Excellent! I highly recommend GDS, Bob. HONEST and knowledgable. Previously I had another company tell me everything had to be replaced for an outrageous amount of money. Bob came, knew exactly what the problem was completed service at 20% of the original estimate. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Wonderful to read this. Thank you for your candor. Yes there are companies out there that will sell parts or products that are not needed. Our view is to be honest, be professional & always respect our clients & their property. Sounds basic, but this makes great sense to us & clearly to you as well. Thank you for the positive comments.

Wonderful. I spoke with you & set up the service. Scott is a great tech who always goes the extra mile to look at the entire system & often finds minor other items to address. This keeps your door & opener running smoother & more efficiently for years to come. Thanks for the review & thanks for your business! Rob
