    Raman is professional and great to work with! I had a handyman try fixing my garage doors, and he spent hours working on it, essentially making everything worse and suggested that we replace the motors, and if that didn't work, the entire unit. Raman fixed them in 45 minutes without having to replace anything for a reasonable price. I'd recommend him!

  • *****

    Raman is an absolute professional and if you’re in the East Bay you need to call him for any garage opener needs

  • *****

    Our roll-up garage doors are old and the building is odd. Raman had to get creative to get openers installed, but he worked diligently until it was all done. And it works beautifully. I'm very happy with his service.

  • *****

    My garage door spring broke after nearly 20 years of service!! The cables were also disconnected in the process, I really didn't know where to start looking for a reliable, trustworthy and affordable garage door repair man or company, fortunately I had the luck of stumbling into Alpa Garage Door here on yelp! Within a couple of minutes of talking to Raman over the phone i knew this guy was the right man for the job! And I sure wasn't mistaken! Not only did he give me a very reasonable quote to begin with, on top of it he gave me a City Of San Pablo resident discount which was very welcomed! He arrived the same day I called him, called ahead before showing up to my home, was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable! He got the job done within about an hour! My garage door is now working again just the way it was before if not better! Thank you again Raman! Job well done!! Don't hesitate in hiring this guy for your garage door problems, he will take very good care of you!

    We needed some repair work done due to the springs on our garage breaking. Gavi came out on a Friday afternoon and did the repairs. We are very pleased with the price and the workmanship. Would definitely work with them again. We recommend contacting Gavi when you need a garage door repair.

  • *****

    Today Raman from Alpha Garage Door Fox my spring on my garage door. Fast reliable and efficient! Came by at the scheduled time took less than an hour and gave me a great price. Would highly recommend this company.

  • *****

    One of our tension springs broke Saturday late afternoon and after posting to multiple companies on Yelp for repair, Raman was the only one to reply Saturday evening. The repair wasn't an emergency so we communicated back and forth for a Monday appointment.

    Raman was on-time and very competitive with his price. A few companies replied on Sunday but they quoted at a higher price. Raman replaced both springs and also replaced a bad bearing. I would use him again.

  • *****

    Raman responded to the RFQ pretty quickly and follow up question. Price was lowest of 3 other quotes and he was here in time window offered. Job was prompt and professional and gave advise on future projects without being pushy. Nice guy to chat with too

    Thanks Raman!

  • *****

    We were very happy with Alpha Garage Door. Quick response time. On time arrival. They were efficient, competitively priced and the work was well done. I recommend them and would use them again.

  • *****

    My garage door stopped working unexpectedly last Saturday when I pulling out of the garage on my way to work :(. I found alpha garage and spoke with Ramon on Monday and he was able to come in and check out the issue a few hours later to determine what needed to be done. He tried to fix my old dinosaur liftmaster and wasn't able to do so. He gave us several options on what we can do, and decided to replace the whole system with a newer liftmaster because its one of the most reliable system on the market. Since he did not have the new system on him he said he could comeback the next day or the day after and we decided on the day after because the schedule worked out better for us. He was efficient and fast and got the work done quickly. Thanks Ramon for your quality of work! When we are ready for a new door we will be sure to call you.

  • *****

    Recently my garage door needed repair. I had anticipated it being a pretty large job as a few people had suggested "what might be wrong with it'....I looked up a random name in the newspaper. A gentleman named Raman arrived, looked at it and suggested it needed a single wire that had been broken/cut. He clearly was not out to rip me off or make extra money. He was quick, a gentleman and extreme;ly reasonable in the price, putting it mildly. I would call him back any time I need help with the garage door, and so should anyone who needs help with their garage door. A five star review...(really should be 10, but it doesn't go that high).

    Excellent same day service. What I admired most was the owner/technician troubleshot first identifying a programming issue, re-programmed and problem solved; instead of replacing entire system which would have cost in excess of $500. I appreciate his integrity and professionalism. I recommend this company.

  • *****

    So far so good! Raman lives up to his reputation. I called early in the morning Monday, wasn't even open. Raman answered the phone, and spent a good amount of time discussing new garage door options. I need a NEW garage door. Raman said he could take care of everything, and when I'm ready to just give him a call and he can usually come out same day, or next day, for the estimate. I was very impressed by the customer service. I can hardly wait for a new garage door! Stay tuned I will update this review with photos! Thanks Raman.

  • *****

    Had a broken spring and needed repair. Called Alpha Garage Repair and Raman picked up the phone. He was able to come repair my garage within a few hours. Raman showed up and repaired both springs fairly quickly and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him for garage repairs.

  • *****

    I couldn't open the garage door manually and automatically. Called Alpha as they are very close to the neighborhood. Raman was very caring and professional! Resolve issues promptly! Highly recommended!

  • *****

    Raman was extremely kind. He made time to help me out on New Year's Eve when my car was stuck in my garage due to a broken spring and cracked door. He came as soon as he could even though it was a holiday to help me. We got my car out and he ordered a new door and spring. He came the following Monday and installed my door with great precision and detail. He is very detail oriented and made adjustments to my sensors and motor. I really appreciate his rapid response and reasonable prices. I definitely recommend Alpha Garage For your new door or repairs

  • *****

    Roman was timely in responding to my quote request. Scheduling the same day was easy enough that he was at my driveway within a couple of hours. He was able to fix the problem at a decent price with warranty included. Professional repairman with prompt customer service. I'm highly satisfied with this company. Call them now.

  • *****

    Raman replaced my garage door and installed a new opener for me. His customer service and attention to detail are top notch. First of all, he responded within the hour, which is rare. I still haven't heard from over half the people that I contacted and it's been about a week. It all started when he came over to give me a quote, way before any commitment by me to hire him for the job. My old door is at least 30 years old and had been neglected most of the time, which left it pretty much unusable. He began by tightening and adjusting things and got my old door working. Again, this was before I decided to hire him for the new door install. Then after finding out that the opener was defective after testing it several times, he immediately fixed the problem by getting it swapped out for a new one, and had the job promptly completed. The reviews that you see here are real! He is the best of the best at what he does. Trust me!

  • *****

    Quick response and on time arrival. Friendly demeanor and knowledgeable. Diagnosed the problem and fixed it within an hour. Competitive pricing.
    I would use him again.

  • *****

    Raman renews my belief in the goodness of people. He is the best. Our garage was erratically opening and closing. I called him a bit after his business closed, yet he picked up and said he'd be over within minutes.
    And he was!
    He quickly identified our problem, the sensor was being blocked by stuff in front of it. When I offered to pay, he said no need. Then, proceeded to lubricate the garage door tracking device, for smoother movement!! He not only came after hours, solved the problem in minutes, but was so generous to us. He is a very special person, all around. I enthusiastically recommend him to one and all

  • *****

    Diagnosed and fixed within a couple of hrs of phone call. Reasonably priced by business owner who does the work himself (no contractor to pay - an expense that is often passed on to the consumer).

  • *****

    Raman is great, on time, on the budget and on the ball.
    I first asked him how to pay him, he said no worry, let we
    fixed the problem first. Wow! What an altitude, that is so
    refreshing. Typically, the contractor will ask that first!

    Job done, no problem and we could wire or send a check!
    Wow, that is unheard of. May be he saw my review and
    trusted me as someone who is trustworthy.

    Enough of the bull, if you have garage problem, you have
    to call him. Do yourself a favor!

    5 Stars! (rare for me)

  • *****

    Fast and reliable. He showed up on the same day to do the repair and his rate was really reasonable.

  • *****

    Amazing customer service. I called at 11:30 on a Monday morning and my garage door was fixed by 1pm. Excellent communication. Highly recommended.

  • *****

    The bracket securing my door opener's drive "track" to the wall broke unexpectedly last night. That left me unable to open my garage door (and left my new car stranded overnight in the rain). So I was glad this morning when Raman was available on short notice to repair the opener. He arrived 15 min. early; then, he reattached the track to the wall, and promptly got the garage door opener working again. Moreover, he tightened all the fasteners on both our garage doors, inspected the springs and lubricated all the moving parts; so they BOTH function much smoother! I'd immediately call Raman again if I need garage door (or garage door opener) repair or installation. I highly recommend Alpha Garage Door.

  • *****

    Raman was quick and very professional. He fit me into his busy schedule and had my garage door up and running in no time. I will definitely refer him to family and friends.

  • *****

    Raman was really quick to respond to my call on a Saturday, when most other companies are either closed or did not return my call. The gear on my garage door opener broke and, since I was leaving for vacation in a few days, I needed to get it repaired as soon as possible. Raman was at my home within an hour and had the gear replaced within another hour. He is very efficient, reasonable in his pricing and a really nice man. I would highly recommend him and will call him when I finally get around to replacing my old, heavy wooden door. Thanks, Raman!

    Raman arrived on time, assessed our needs, explained what he could and could not do, told us our 35-year-old door and opener were in good condition, alerted us to what would happen when the springs finally broke, and charged us just what he'd estimated the service call would cost. We were favorably impressed by his professionalism, and we recommend him.

  • *****

    Raman was prompt, professional, and detail-oriented. He repaired my ancient garage doors in timely way, and for a reasonable price. I highly recommend him.

  • *****

    Professional and punctual. Presented options, didn't immediately go for replacement of the motor. Finished the job quickly and didn't leave a mess. Call Raman without hesitation for any garage door service you need.

  • *****

    Raman is so awesome!! He replied my messages in couple minutes and came to my place to check what he could help, we need to change a new garage door, he gave us a lot of good advises. Then after 1 week he spent a whole day to install a new beautiful garage door, it is amazing! He is really good at communication also works hard. The door is impeccable and perfect! And the price is also reasonable. Highly recommend Alpha Garage Door, it was a great experience to work with him.

  • *****

    Jason MC did a great job fixing my garage door and checked everything else to ensure it would be in shape for years to come! Really appreciated his service and expertise. Would recommend.

  • *****

    Great communication, easy to make an appointment. Fixed my problem on the spot. Super great service. Thanks!

  • *****

    Had a problem with my garage door. One of the springs snapped. I gave Alpha Garage door a call and they were at my house within 2 hours. My garage was fixed in about an hour. Very fast and friendly service. I highly recommend Alpha Garage Door.

  • *****

    Fast response and amazing work and professionalism. Very friendly and courteous. Highly recommend!!!

  • *****

    Great service, I called @ 2:30 and by just giving a few details, knew what the problem was. I was up and running again in a matter of ours.

  • *****

    Raman is the best around! I called, and left a message early in the morning in need for a double door spring replacement. He called me back within 15 minutes and even set me up with a same day appointment!! To top things off I was about 10minutes late for my appointment at my own home, and he was kind enough to wait for me outside. He did a quick inspection of the damage done to my garage and told me that everything looks like it's still in good shape and that all I needed was a spring replacement. No haggling "upsale" pitch to get me to spend more money, just honest straight to the point work. He got started on my garage and finished up within 30 minutes! Awesome work, and very personable business owner. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with garage troubles, and have him do anymore work to mine as well.

  • *****

    Used the yelp quote feature and Raman called not too long afterwards. Provided me an estimate for a cracked vertical section (where the arm bar meets the door) and was able to arrive earlier than anticipated, which was great. As soon as Raman arrived he was professional and polite. Service was fast as it only took him 20 min! I would definitely call Raman again for any future issues. Thanks again!

  • *****

    Great service, very professional. Called at 9 am, was there at 11 am.
    Fixed all the issues and more.

  • *****

    Great service. Honest and prompt. Fixed our garage door right way. I highly recommend him to others.

  • *****

    Raman was great! Reliable, on time, and clear communication. Price was fair and reasonable for quality work.

  • *****

    Great service, very professional. This is my second time that I request his service and no regrets. He will no cut corners and will tell you the truth about what is need to be done. Highly recommended, a guy you can trust.

  • *****

    Raman was responsive, punctual and extremely helpful! He replied to my inquiry not long after I had messaged him and showed up on time to our appointment. He was very informative about the solution to what I thought was a intensive problem. Got the problem fixed and hooked up new remotes for me in minutes. Defiantly will reach out to him again if any items arise in the future. Thanks Raman!

  • *****

    Had a very positive experience with Raman and Alpha Garage Door. He quoted me a significantly less expensive price for installing a top of the line garage door opener (over a $100 cheaper). Responded in 10 minutes to request for a quote over yelp and answered questions over email promptly. Came the next day on time and installed. Was professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend this business!

  • *****

    Raman is the right man for the job. My brother called me at 8:30 in the morning say his garage spring gave out on him the night before said the spring broke. It was early and places did open til 9:00 but still called he picked right away told him the problem I was having. He gave me a quote and we setup a time and he was even 10 min early. Whole repair process took only 30 min. He even oiled up all my hinges and rollers. He also did a manual test of the garage door to make sure The garage door was lighting off for me to lift if the power never went out. Great service went out of his way to accommodate his clients.

  • *****

    We had a mishap with our garage door coming down on the opened rear hatch of our car that was parked in our garage. Needless to say, our aluminum garage door got pushed off track and somewhat bent out of shape. I was very pleased with Raman's accessibility, as he was available to repair our garage door on the same day that I called. The repair company that I usually use did not return my calls after I had left 3 messages, so I looked for another highly rated company on yelp and found Alpha Garage Door. I was not disappointed. Raman was accessible, knowledgeable, and efficient. I'm glad I found him!

  • *****

    Raman is the man! We had a power outage in our neighborhood and the garage door just crapped out. I tried new batteries, outside key panel (which also happened to be broken) and keyless fob. None worked. Anyway, I used Yelp's request a quote feature and Raman got back to me very quickly, answered some questions over email and offered to come out that afternoon. I couldn't be there, but my wife was and said Raman was on time, friendly, and showed her how to reset the main unit in the garage. That was basically all that was needed and he said it's common this happens sometimes after a power outage. He left instructions, his number and also offered to order us a new keypad for the front entrance since that completely crapped out, but he didn't push it on anyone. He usually has the keypad for Genie garage door openers in his van, but was out so he just said to let him know if we ever want it fixed and he'll be glad to come back out.

    The whole thing was under $100, I believe he's based in San Pablo, so luckily we are just over the Richmond bridge. Regardless, his rates were standard with other folks, and he was the most responsive. Couple other people just never even wrote me back after they asked me questions, so that was bizarre. Thanks Raman!

  • *****

    My garage door cable unspooled and jammed last night and I couldn't figure it out myself. I called several places and the best I could get was an appointment a day away. Then I checked Yelp and saw Raman's great reviews and response time. He was here this morning by 10am and my door was fixed by 11am. Reasonably priced and a very friendly guy. Even beyond fixing my initial cable problem, I could tell he was trying to get the entire door tuned up and working as well as possible before he was satisfied. I'll definitely call him again if I have a garage door issue.

  • *****

    Raman is very easy to work with. My step-father had hit my garage with his car. Raman was very efficient, quick, and thorough in replacing two panels on the garage door. It works better than before it was hit. He also save me money compared to other companies.

  • *****

    Raman is AMAZING! He's as great as everyone on here says he is! I was in desperate need of someone to fix my garage since I was having rodent issues. Their entry points identified by pest control was both sides of our weather strip (that the rats chewed out) and the top left side since it didn't flush closed. I called Ramon and he was able to come out the same day. He inspected the garage and mentioned that he wasn't able to fix the weather strip right away since our ground was uneven. He was going to have to research alternatives. He responded to my phone calls each time I called. He said he could either order a threshold online that would take up to 7 business days. Or he could create something to solve the issue and be back the next day. I was in a panic with my rodent issue and so of course asked him to come back the next day. Ramon is very knowledgable of garages and incredibly easy to work with! I highly recommend him for your garage needs!

  • *****

    Raman's work is excellent! His work is as good as, if not better than bigger companies that do the same work. He is professional, courteous, prompt, and thorough. He was able to provide me a same-day quote, unlike a couple of others who sent their estimates/bids up to 10 days after the initial visit. Raman installed 2 doors, and they look great! I'm very glad I shopped around and am convinced I made the right choice. Thanks very much, Raman!

  • *****

    Wish I could give this guy 6 stars. Raman emailed me back within 20 minutes, stopped by within an hour, and quoted me for half the price of the competition. Showed up precisely when he said he would, and the work is flawless. Thanks SO much!

  • *****

    We called Raman today for an emergency garage door problem. He showed up and fixed the door within an hour. He explained the issue and what he'd need to do to fix in very understandable terms for us. He also gave us good information about future issues that could arise and what to look out for. His price was very manageable and we will definitely use his services again if needed. Thank you for your help!!

  • *****

    Great job

  • *****

    Raman who is the owner of this company was top notch. He treated me with respect and did everything he said he would do. I had talked to other companies and they were not as detailed or as helpful as Raman. He showed up exactly when he said he would and did a great job. My garage is is better than even before my springs broke. It is hard to find honest good working people. Your in good hands with Raman. He was very honest with me about what would work best. Thank you Alpha Garage Door!!!!!!!!!

  • *****

    Raman is prompt and professional when it comes to garage repairs. He was able to repair my garage with broken gears on the same day I called....with a fair price. 5 stars, highly recommend for your garage repairs.

  • *****

    I had Raman install a garage door opener that I bought at Home Depot and very quickly decided I did not want to install myself. He was able to give me a quote over the phone, which was appreciated because I hate having people come to my house for an estimate then have to come back again to do the job. He came out on a weekend, installed it without issue and was very professional. After talking to him about the opener that I bought, I realized that it would have been better and cheaper to buy an opener directly from Alpha Garage, but he didn't give me a hard time about installing a home depot unit.

  • *****

    No wonder why Alpha door has all 5 star reviews; Raman was a very dependable person to work with; His price was unbeatable for the work he performed in my complicated garage;
    Hopefully the new door door last forever but I would love to work with again in need for my self and recommend others!
    Keep up the good work Raman!!!

  • *****

    I am glad that after checking reviews on yelp i decided to choose Alpha Garage Door company. Our garage spring broke and we couldn't get the cars out. I called and Raman was very helpful and accomodating he was able to squeeze me in on his schedule. He arrived about 30 minutes after we talked and he replaced 2 springs. His price was reasonable and with service warranty.I will definitely recommend him to my friends & family. I'm very thankful to him for the quick & reliable service!

  • *****

    Had a broken chain opener. Wanted to replace it with a liftmaster 8500. Sent a request for quotes through yelp (awesome feature) and received multiple responses. Raman was the most responsive, with a competitive price, and was able to do the install that day. He also adjusted to my late afternoon availability. Install was done with high quality, great service and expertise.

  • *****

    Raman came out same day to service my garage door, which was a blessing since it is my last day at my rental property in Oakland. His prices are very reasonable and he gets the job done right. Now my garage door is on the right track!! :/

  • *****

    I had a garage door that had gotten completely jammed due to poor installation by another company. After I called Alpha, Raman was at my house the next morning. He corrected the problems with the initial installation and it was as good as new (actually better than it had ever operated) He was professional, courteous, did a great job and charged a reasonable price for the work. I highly recommend.

  • *****

    Raman, from Alpha garage door did a good job. very professional and knowledgeable on what he's doing. Highly recommended. and I will not hesitate to call him again. for another job on the garage door

  • *****

    My car was a hostage by a broken spring!

    Raman changed my springs on a dual roll up garage door.
    He was efficient and knowledgeable with his work.

    I got a quote through Yelp late Friday and we emailed back and forth to nail the time, and he came Monday AM to get the job done.

    His price was in the same range as the others who was late in responding, that's why got the job.

    Thanks!

  • *****

    I called Raman 30 min after he was open on a weekday cause my garage door was no longer aligned properly and seemed to be stuck slightly open. He came as soon as I was free at /pm and fixed my door very quick w/o having to trouble shoot the issue. I was charged $85 which I believe was a very good price for me, I thought I was going to spend much more. He's very kind and knowledgeable in his profession. I would definately recommend his service to anyone who needs garage work done.

  • *****

    Raman is very professional and a pleasant person to work with. He came to my house the same day I called him. I have an old and original garage door from the 1940s that the previous house owners try to fix themselves by installing a motor. The work the previous owners did was just plain stupid. I had no hopes that my door could be fixed, but Raman got my garage door working within two hours. I highly recommend him. I'm definitely using Raman when I get a new door.

  • *****

    Spring broke on my overhead garage door, trapping my car. Was delighted to get a very fast reply, a quick and reasonably priced repair. Courteous, helpful and friendly service.

  • *****

    Posting for a friend who recently had to call on Raman for service.

    Raman was contacted on Saturday 5/3/17. He was closed but took the time to try and trouble shoot the problem over the phone. He came out on Monday 5/5/17 to fix the garage. Very helpful and professional. Great person and great work. Highly recommend. He is the person to call when work is needed on your garage door. 5 plus stars!!!!!

  • *****

    Raman at Alpha Garage Door did a fantastic job fixing our door. He responded quickly, gave a quote via text message - we had sent pics - and honored the quote. He also recommended a few different options when we decide to replace it. We will certainly call Raman next time we need assistance.

  • *****

    HIGHLY recommend! I called and left a message for Raman Thursday night and he called me back 5 minutes later. I sent a picture of my garage door, he identified the problem (broken spring), he told me the price and came the next day to repair it and service the door. He did the job fast and did an amazing job. Fast, friendly and fair! Thank you Raman!

  • *****

    Excellent work!

  • *****

    I scheduled a repair for my door that had come off its track and lost tension on the spring. Although Raman came a bit late, he made up for this by getting right to work and efficiently rewound the spring and adjusted the cables and track. The result was great and he also answered all my questions with clarity, including advising about proper methods for lubricating the tracks. I would definitely use Raman's service again and highly recommend him.

  • *****

    I'm lucky I found Raman. He came out to the property and showed me all my options and styles. He was courteous, professional, punctual, highly skilled, knowledgeable and most importantly honest. Oh and did I mention not overpriced!! I will be recommending him to all my family and friends. Thank you Raman..

  • *****

    Normally I called Abe at ABC in SF but I guess he has directed all his East Bay service to Raman at Alpha Garage Door now. Raman was available readily when I called and came over the next day which was fine since it was not an emergency. He identified and fixed the issue with our garage door easily and made it so we'd never have the problem again. The door was getting stuck on the sensor which had moved out of place. When I asked about a possible replacement door, he honestly told me that I had a good 6 months to a year on the current door after he adjusted it for us. I'll give him a call when we have the funds for a new lighter door!

  • *****

    Raman provided the Best price and service.
    He was on time, did a great job replacing the garage opener, and tested it many times before leaving.
    On top of that, he called the next day as a follow-up.
    I am extremely happy with his service, price and work ethics.
    I highly recommend him to an garage doors related work

  • *****

    Raman did a excellent job to replace my garage door opener. Came by right on time and installed the garage door opener less than the promised time. Highly recommended!

  • *****

    Raman is an asset to the area. Helped me fix a bad repair job by another repair person.

    Thank you for your service!

    He offers repair and replacement at fair rates. :)

  • *****

    Top Notch Service. Excellent Work. Best Prices in Town. Highly Recommended to the MAX. Raman was on time. He replaced the damaged section of my house overhead garage door. He saved me lots of money. Thank you Raman very much. Go with the PRO

  • *****

    Excellent work, friendly service and good prices. Raman not only fixed our garage door which had come off its hinge and was stuck, but also troubleshot some additional problems making it operate even more smoothly than before it broke. Highly recommend!!
