Garage Door Installation in Virginia Beach, VA

Man working

Your garage door is one of the most underappreciated but exceptionally helpful parts of your home. The garage is not considered a habitable space and is usually where people store their vehicles, so there’s not a whole lot of attention that gets paid to the garage door until something happens, like when a spring breaks. But your garage door can help improve energy efficiency in your home, provides an extra layer of security for you and your family and your possessions, and can even increase the value or selling price of your home.

Installing new garage doors only takes 3-4 hours, but the benefits can last for as long as you own your home. So whether you need to replace an old garage door or want to upgrade it, J & S Overhead Garage Door Service provides same-day garage door installation in Virginia Beach and throughout Hampton Roads.

Many Garage Door Styles To Choose From

There are myriad styles of garage doors to match any home or commercial property. We can help you find the right style for your budget and personal preferences. We can also go over which ones would be more energy efficient for your home within the parameters of what you want. Here are a few different types that are very popular.

  • Carriage-style garage doors— also known as barn style garage doors— recall a time from the past when horse-drawn carriage was the fastest way to get anywhere. Although people have switched over to driving cars, carriage house style garage doors add a nice rustic look to your home. While they have an overhead operation, they look very much like they can swing out just like a carriage door.
  • Mosaic garage doors, by contrast, have a much more contemporary look suited for mid-century modern or transitional homes. These garages have windows that you can customize and place as a reflection of your personal style.
  • Garage doors that are constructed with insulated glass come in different levels of opacity to control how much light enters the garage, which thus affects the climate inside of your garage.

Again, there are myriad different types of garage doors and styles to choose from, And this is only a small selection of what we can do. Give us a call today and let us know what your preferences are so that we can present to you options that fit within your budget, but also match what you want your garage door to look like.

Single-Panel Vs. Sectional Garage Doors

Older garage doors are typically single panels that tilt up and back when the door is signaled to open. In rare cases garage doors can’t even slide open and closed horizontally. Sectional garage doors, on the other hand, are extremely popular because they allow for more space in your garage and there’s never a worry of anything in front of the door getting damaged. Sectional garage doors are made of several panels that are joined together and roll up and down along tracks that go across the garage ceiling. The door is operated by either a spring-loaded or counterweight system, which offsets the weight of the door. Sectional garage doors also run smoother along the track and are much more reliable.

There are some advantages and disadvantages to each type. A lot of people in Virginia Beach park a car outside of their home in their driveway, so if you have a single panel garage door then you would have to park your car a few feet away from the door in order to avoid hitting your car bumper or hood with the bottom edge of the garage door.

Roller Garage Doors

There is another type of garage door that is often not used in residential settings but is common in workshops and mechanic garages. Roller doors are typically made out of steel and used in industrial settings. Roller garage doors are great when you need more thermal insulation and protection for whatever is inside your garage. However, they require a lot more maintenance and frequent lubrication to ensure that they roll up and down properly.

Client Reviews

We are so thankful for J & S!!! I requested for someone from their team to come out and repair our garage door spring. Just a few short hours later, I received a phone call from ADAM saying he was on his way. Upon arrival he assessed the garage door and explained what needed to be done to ensure that it will run properly again. He was very thorough and fair with the estimate, did the work quickly and efficiently (less than an hour), and was very pleasant to work with. I will highly recommend him and this company to all of my family and friends!!!! Thank you again!

Leslie Mann

I am so thankful that I chose to do business with this company. I called on Tuesday and the guy that I spoke with gave me a fair estimate. He was really nice. He set me up for an install for today ( Friday). The technician was Zachery. He was very professional and very friendly. He explained everything to me. This company did not disappoint.

LoLo Hanna

What a great company and amazing people! We had 4 garage doors replaced and could not be more pleased with the outcome! From the first phone call from Joe to the install from Rob, the process could have not been more easy! Rob is AMAZING! He took the necessary time to do the install and then provided a complete explanation of the new doors. He also installed a new door opener on our “big” door and took the time to not only explain and show us, he also linked all of the remotes to work with the other doors. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

J&S originally installed my garage door opener back in 2016. I was having issues with the door closing so I called them yesterday. They scheduled an appointment for today and sent Adam. He was on time and professional. Adam was able to replace the sensors and made sure the indoor switch worked as well as the car remotes before he left. He wasn’t even here a full hour and had the job complete!

Shawn Wright

Exceptional service! Knowledgeable, friendly technicians Adam and Carlos. I highly recommend J&S for service

Tracy Hardee

I had a great experience! Adam arrived on time after calling that he was on his way. He explained everything, was professional, and fixed the problem very quickly. I already have them saved for any garage service in the future.

Megan Rosten

This by far has been one of the best repair experiences that I have ever had. I contacted the company in the morning and a technician was dispatched the same day and completely finished installing two new Garage door openers, and additional door support. The technician, Adam was professional, but yet personable. I highly recommend J & S Overhead Garage Door Service.
