The installation crew arrived promptly and got right to work. They were friendly, efficient and did a great job; very neat and cleaned up everything.

They explained everything including the proper maintenance. I definitely recommend Thomas Giel.

Excellent Service

John (your tech) repaired my garage door and was excellent! It is now working great and in fact it is so quiet now I have to double check to see if its up or down.

Great Service

I had new garage door and Lift Master garage door installed.

I needed a follow up to correctly install the hi tech part.

Frank came out and helped me out to get that area working. He was great to work with and made sure every was working properly and even gave knowledgeable advise on proper care, lubrication, and maintenance.

This is what I call great service and would recommend Thomas V. Giel to anyone.

Technician - John Gardner - today was excellent. Fixed problem right away. We have a VERY OLD garage door and opener (approx 35 years) and this is only the second time we have required service since Thomas V Giel Co did the installation!! Great service department and very fair pricing. Highly recommend them. (Wish other contractors we’ve had to our residence to do other types of work were as good as them!)

New installation

Replaced original garage doors by Thomas V. Giel. Entire process went extremely smooth, from scheduling the original sales call to the final installation.
The installers - Steve and Greg were very professional. My home created some install issues that Steve & Greg adapted and overcame without compromising the installation. Steve explained what he was going to do every step of the way and made sure I was ok with the procedure. They actually made the whole process a fun situation. Garage was cleaned before they left and with the new doors made the house look new again.

Awesome Job John

We had Thomson Giel put in our garage door over 20 years ago. We called and explained that our garage door opener was not working. The technician's name was John not only was he very honest but a really great guy. John looked at it and showed me where the problem was due to a power surge. He had to put in a new circuit board in and quoted me the price. We had a quote before John showed up and I can honestly say we saved hundreds of dollars by calling Thomson Giel. Thanks so much for not only your prompt service but great price.

Highly recommend these folks!

I had an issue with my garage door and I called Giel, as they were recommended. So glad I did. The technician oiled all of the joints and put it back on track. Unfortunately, there was an underlying issue with my sensors that appeared shortly after their visit. Pat came right back out and corrected the issue. Highly recommend these folks!

Storm Door did not live up to expectations

Ordered a Provia Spectrum 291 Full View custom storm door in June 2022. After waiting several months for the door to be manufactured the door was not the correct size and had to be reordered. Second visit and all went well until later that evening I was showing a friend the new door and how it operated and low an behold the bottom panel malfunctions and a metal band that I think is used to lower and raise the panel broke. Not even 4 hours after installation. There is certainly something wrong with this manufacturer. Thomas V. Giel installer did a great job but not happy with the door. Hope that they make it right. Nothing but trouble with this purchase.

Superb service on an awful weather day!

Our garage door broke and needed a new garage door opener on a day when we had a foot of snow. I was worried because I would not be able to get my car out in the am to get to work. They had a lot of people call off but she said they would at least get someone out to get it open for the car to be moved out. Well 2 above and beyond nice workers came and even was able to replace my door opener! One even helped shovel part of my driveway and salt it, so I could safely pull my car out! I told him that was not part of the job description. These 2 guys made my day which was not a good one! Thank you so much for superb service on an awful weather day!

My mom and I were stranded in the Giant Eagle parking lot in Gibsonia with a flat tire. A member of your team took time out of his evening to help two helpless women change a flat tire. He was extremely selfless, kind and unbelievably patient with us. I don't know his name but we are very grateful. Just a testament to the kind of people that work for your company. Thank you!

Garage Door Spring Replacement

We cannot thank you enough for how quickly you repaired our garage door spring. Your technician came within one hour of our call. My wife's call was stuck in the garage when the spring let go. We need the car to transport our grandchildren back and forth while their parents are at work.
The work was completed within an hour.
Thank you again!

Great Job!

I would highly recommend Thomas Giel Garage Doors. I called on a Tuesday when 1 of our 2 (32 year old) openers quit just days before leaving for a trip. I had several conversations with their scheduler/service manager trying to diagnose if a torsion bar spring would be necessary. He was great, and walked me through the process and with a few pictures was able to determine the spring was ok. They were able to replace the broken opener and the other one on Thursday morning prior to us leaving. They did an EXCELLENT install on the new openers, helped me program everything, added two additional switches (not on original order), added a strut to one door (not on order but recommended at time of install), and adjusted and serviced both doors. I couldn't be happier. I've told several people it's the most happy I've been with a purchase in a very long time. The install guys were great, they showed up on time, were very professional and did an outstanding job! Thanks for the great service!

Jack, Donny and Brian were some of the most polite and personable workers I have ever met. I don't meet many service employees that shake hands when introducing themselves. They made sure I understood all the new equipment. I would definitely have them come out again. John Gardner (sales person) was also very polite and personable! Great team!!

Good job with a fair price in every way

John Gardner showed up at our home and we told him what we wanted and he listened. He made recommendations that were thoughtful and solved technical problems. He presented us with a solution that he would have done for himself. The installers, Dave and Landon arrived on time and were friendly and worked diligently. They cleaned up before they left. The level of skill necessary to install these garage doors and openers could not be done by a do-it-yourself person. It was a very good job with a fair price in every way. Thank you very much!

I had my garage door motor, the track and the keypad replaced and was very pleased with their professionalism and their demeanor. All three of them were very polite and personable. Jack, Donny & Brian all introduced themselves and shook my hand (unusual in today's world). They were even kind enough to ask me if they could fix something in my garage that could be dangerous for people coming in and out. They did a great job of explaining how everything worked. Definitely someone worth hiring!!

Great Service!

Harold just finished fixing our garage doors (one of them had a snapped cable and the other hasn't worked for some time--we just never got it fixed). We called for service yesterday, and he was able to come to our house first thing this morning to fix the doors. His service was outstanding! His work was clean (big bonus points there) and efficient, and I found him to be knowledgeable, honest, courteous, and personable. In addition to Harold's excellent service, my initial call to the company was handled quickly and pleasantly, and the total cost was more than reasonable. Excellent job!

Beyond the call of duty.

They gave a quote; ordered the door, and within 3 weeks had the job completed. The two technicians were very professional and made sure the door was sealed properly. They even sealed around some pipes with caulking which was "above and beyond the call of duty.

Give Thomas V. Giel a call, you won’t be disappointed

After I received a quote from Thomas V Giel for new awning, we decided to have them install it. After a quality install, my wife had a few questions. Not only did the salesman come to our home, the owner of the company came as well to answer our questions.
While they were there, I asked for a quote to repair my garage door. After the technicians finished the work, not only had they completed the scope of work, I believe they cleaned the garage door and adjusted it because it opens better than it ever has.
If you are looking for a company with skilled employees, excellent customer service and a is concerned about the quality of their work, give Thomas V Giel call, you won't be disappointed.

Last week I called about getting a price for a new opener. Jesica was very helpful and answered all my questions and she gave me the price.
I called and ordered, the opener and then Dave and Robert installed it.
Everyone was very pleasant to talk to.
The instillation went as smooth as silk and I couldn't believe how quiet the belt drive is. They explained to me how everything works and about the guarantee on the belt and operation of the battery back up,
Adjusted the operation of the door and safety mechanisms.
You can be very proud of your employees. Thank you we love it.

Excellent Service – Great job Tim!

The circuit board blew out due to my poor DYI skills. I called 3 companies and Thomas Giel (there are other Giel companies) was the first to set a time for service. Tim is the tech who arrived at 9 AM ( ETA 9-9:30). Recommended replacing the gear kit at the same time as the Logic board. My chain was visually loose, had been for some time; Tim said it was only a matter of a short time before the gear would need replacing. He replaced both parts within 40 minutes. Now almost no noise from the chain when the door operates, great improvement and pricing was competitive.

Highly Impressed, Gold Star Customer Service

Late on a Tuesday night, my spring broke to my door.
After receiving a recommendation from a previous customer, I sent a request online.
A representative called me quickly & wanted to understand if this was an immediate need (as in did I need to get my car out of the garage).

2 days later Harold showed up. Unimpressed with the installation of the garage door, he improved areas where the original installer lacked attention to detail.
He was very clear and explained to me what needed to be done. He was very professional while at my home.

I had done research on the replacement cost & I was stunned with how reasonable the price was.

When my garage door requires replacement, I will surely be back.

After 25 years, we finally replaced the original garage door to our 59 year old house (Sept 2015). The door itself is really nice and the color is a perfect match to the trim on the house.

The installation team did an excellent job of installing the door, including cutting out the mail slot. The door looks great and works great! We could not be happier with this purchase and will definitely recommend Thomas V. Giel to everyone we know.

Excellent Customer Service

I called yesterday informing you of a problem getting my garage door to close properly.
After describing the "symptoms" I was advised that it probably was just some cobwebs or other debris clogging the sensors.
I went home , cleaned up around the sensors, and my garage door was fixed.
I admit to knowing very little on the operation of the door, and you could have taken advantage of this, sent a serviceman to my house and charged me for a service call and labor to fix this, putting the money in your pocket, in lieu of free advice over the phone, as many other businesses might have.
I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and fix suggestion.
Your residential customer service representative was polite, courteous, and knowledgeable.
Thanks again,

You found The BEST IN THE ‘BURGH

Some months ago, I was the recipient of a below substandard garage door installation done by another company. So frustrated and stressed because I hired the wrong installation business, I contacted Ed Giel of Thomas V. Giel Garage Door for a his opinion. Sure enough, his assessment was spot on! I scheduled the installation appointment. On arrival and in one full day Ed and his crew completely dismantled and re-replaced 2 new garage doors with all new hardware. Ed and his team know their stuff and are detailed professionals in every way. Character traits that are very hard to find and everything you want in your next garage door repair. They earn your trust and keep it!

Excellent experience!

Excellent experience with Thomas Giel.
The crew of 2 showed up on time and they were gone 2hrs later, after installing and adjusting the new garage door, putting new trim, connecting it to the opener and cleaning the interior of the garage.
They were very professional and courteous.
I have only positive things to say about Thomas Giel and their prices are excellent.
Highly recommend.
