Adorn your door!

Recently, Leo’s Overhead Doors partnered with Fabbri Creations to create a new, low cost way to jazz up the look of overhead doors that may be dated and worn. If you have an overhead door that may not necessarily need to be replaced, but that you want to maybe dress up, update the curb appeal of your home, and differentiate from other doors in your neighborhood, we may have the answer.

Fabbri Creations offers a varied and customizable line of sturdy, American made door adornments such as handles, hinges, accents, knockers, and signs that can both complement the look of your home and do it at a more manageable price than replacing your otherwise perfectly good door. This line is completely manufactured in the US from a high quality resin that is guaranteed to last a lifetime by Fabbri, and won’t rust or fade. The items come in a range of colors, and can be made to look like old fashioned wrought iron, or intricately woven copper, brushed silver, gold, or can even come with a  weathered patina for whatever color scheme or application you have in mind. The Fabbri accents can be installed on wooden or fiberglass doors as well as metal, unlike the magnetic applications of traditional overhead door accents offered by other suppliers.IMG_0396

Best of all, we can order and install for you, in addition to everything else we do here at Leo’s Overhead Doors. For a limited time, we are offering 5% off and free shipping of anything you want from Fabbri Creations, with the installation of a new door or a service visit from Leo’s Overhead Doors. IMG_0394


Daily Prompt: Miniature

Good morning, all!

Today’s daily prompt is “Miniature.” Nothing that I do is miniature. That word doesn’t come up around here very often, unless you are referring to my height. But as a shorter person, I’ve got a big attitude and an ever bigger drive. Go big or go home. everything lately that I’ve done, wanted, gotten, etc, I got threefold. Miniature? Me? Never!

For example, Leo’s Overhead Doors is our family’s business, and we deal in absolutely NOTHING that is miniature. From garage doors, which are generally the largest moving parts of buildings or homes, to our customer service, our reputation, even our pets, for that matter, are not in the slightest idea anything that one can call miniature. Even our warehouse cat, Carley, isn’t miniature – she’s the largest tortoise-shell cat I’ve ever seen. I suppose you could call our goats miniature, but they really aren’t. Don’t believe the ad when it says Miniature Nubian goats – they weigh about 125 lbs each. That’s not mini in my book, even if the full size version weighs between 150 and 200 lbs normally. It might be a tad smaller, but not mini. And I’ve the pleasure of having 4 of them in my backyard. So, mini doesn’t describe me at all – even when I tried.

Our efforts to run our business in Troy is nowhere near mini – we offer the ONLY 5 year warranty there is on garage doors in the area, and we’re the only overhead door company that has taken the extra step of becoming industry certified by the IDA, the US’s only national door company association. Our family and staff is here for our clients 24/7/365 for any problem they might have with their overhead door. I would not call that dedication miniature at all – more like macro. We like macro. We do macro well.

So if you want miniature around here, you must go looking elsewhere. Leo’s and our family does things all the way, the right way, and beyond. Nothing miniature about us! Don’t let my height fool you 🙂

Today’s Singular Event

So, Brian Hansen is one of our gifted technicians here at Leo’s Overhead Doors. He just sat down today, fresh off the job site, and told me something I really liked, something I thought I should share with you all.

Today, Brian was at a job site where Leo’s Overhead Doors had installed a garage door 47 years ago! Grandpa Leo Meichtry had originally done the installation, and here we are, years later, to come repair that same door- the only overhead door company to ever touch that door since it was brand new! Brian is our newest technician, and he is the son of our longest-working veteran commercial technician, Mark. This particular garage door was installed even before Mark was hired by Leo’s, when this business was just starting out.

Things like this make me proud to continue this tradition. To have a job done by Leo’s Overhead Doors so long ago, and to have that door last that long until they need us again is a real privilege. Thank you, Brian, for that special moment for Leo’s!
