Martin Garage Doors of Nevada

Safety. Warranty. Quality.

Copper Garage Doors

99.9% pure copper garage doors are perfect for places like Mt. Charleston, lakefront & oceanfront properties, Copper Garage Doors
desert areas (using special patina).  Areas that are
rone to rust or corrosion are perfect for copper
garage doors.  Even in tough mountain or ocean
climates, copper will not corrode.

The reason the doors are not 100% pure copper
is that copper is a softer element so Martin had
to add a small amount of alloy to strengthen the
door in order to pass windload and dent-resistance
standards. 

These doors carry a Martin limited lifetime warranty and should always be ordered with premium
hardware and safe joints.  

They are secure, and safe to operate.  Add a 
Marantec 370 operator for the ultimate in quiet
and performance.  This operator also carries a
lifetime warranty.

Copper doors  never corrode or rust, but they do
turn green eventually (think of the Statue of
Liberty). Copper is good for 100's of years.  Much 
of the copper in these doors has been recycles
over and over again for centuries because 
copper never seems to go away.  There is good
reason that even the ancients used copper for 
their money.

We're training a new employee Adrian, and he just installed two new Martin garage doors and openers by himself! He has already passed his training on changing springs, replacing Liftmaster gear kits, and doing general maintenance on residential garage doors and operators.  So his trainers Roberto and Cisco decided to see if he was ready to install a new door job solo and he did it!  At Martin Garage Doors of Nevada, all of our technicians are trained and certified.  Give Adrian a couple of years on the job and he'll be ready for his first certification.  Our certifications are not in-house - they're done by the industry training and certification organization, Institute for Door Education and Accreditation.  Our business is also accredited by the same organization.  Certification requires years of certified experience, a great deal of study of manuals and other materials, passing of a lengthy half-day test, and yearly certified and documented continuing education.  Good job Adrian!

The photo shows why you don't hire residential companies to do commercial jobs. The owners of a luxury car company called us for a 2nd opinion and this is what we saw! Maybe they're using the punched angle brace for a TV antenna?

Particularly on steel rolling doors, the operators must be solidly braced because they are holding curtains that weigh up to 1,000 pounds or more!  Yes, rolling steel doors are supposed to be “in balance” and the torsion springs are supposed to offset the weight of the door curtain. 

But steel rolling doors are different than sectional doors (the types of doors on your home).  They do balance at the floor and at the header, but they DO NOT balance midway up.  By nature, these doors are heavy in mid-travel, and if the operator’s grip is not solid, over time the parts will wear and things can break and come loose.

Regular preventive inspections maintenance is required on electrically operated rolling steel doors to inspect the door, operator and the sprockets, keys and set screws that hold the operator’s grip firm.  Call us today to set up your business with preventive inspections and maintenance.

Gun Mountain

Security is a huge factor in the door business.  In fact many say that security is the major function of all types of doors.  We don't necessarily agree with this viewpoint, as garage doors are a prominent component in the front of most homes, so beauty is probably another important factor, as well as safety, warranty, ease of use, noise, insulation, long life, maintenance requirements, and dozens of other factors.  

Please watch this video on our Youtube Channel: Gun Mountain  You will view our installers step by step erecting and
installing security doors and a metal gate across the front of a Gun Mountain, a major gun & ammunition dealer located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The top picture at the right shows the side-acting security gate on the front of the store to deter intruders.  When you're in the firearm
business, security and break-ins are a major concern.  In front of this gate is the aluminum and glass "storefront."   This acts as a
 first line of defense. 

Next, this curtain gate system was mounted inside of the storefront for a second line of defense against intruders.  During the day it is
tucked away to the side and after hours it is locked closed.

The middle photo shows the firearms display when the new security shutters are open.  We protected the firearm displays with rolling
security shutters as a 3rd line of defense.  These shutters were installed over the front of the wall displays inside the store.  Each
evening, the shutters are lowered and securely locked, and the following morning they are unlocked and raised back up.  But they no
longer take the firearms down at night to put them away in the vault - they just close the security shutters and lock them in place.

Previously the gun dealer's employees were required to take down all of the firearms from the display and store them in the vault. 
Then the following morning they would go into the vault and put them all out again.  They still have the vault, but it isn't used to
store the display firearms.

The store owners informed us that the labor savings alone would pay for the cost of the doors.

One of our customers didn't know how to post an online review, so he emailed it to me.  Such a great review I thought I'd post it here!

 

Every so often, a customer can't navigate the Internet well enough to publish a review.  This customer decided to email me his review so I thought I'd publish it here.  

"I wanted to take a moment to compliment a technician named Mike who came to out home Yesterday (7-10-17) to replace the spring on the garage door used by my Wife.

"Before I do that, let me tell you why I chose Martin Door instead of your competitors.  People, for the most part, never think about their garage doors. They simply expect them to work, and they nearly always do. My wife and I are both seniors and in our entire life we've only made 3 calls for garage door service! We don't worry about them because they just work...until they don't!

"About 6 or 7 years ago, the spring on MY side which is a 2 car sized door needed a new spring. At that time, I went to the yellow pages and for reasons I no longer remember I selected Martin.

"Here's what I DO remember about that service call. I was given an approximate time for the repair for 'that same day' which I thought was AWESOME! The tech was on-time, and he not only replaced the spring, he got the door back on the rails, then he lubed the new spring, rails, wheels, and about 30 minutes later - when he was finished he asked if he could put a Martin Doors Sticker under my garage door openers (inside the garage). I said "Sure' and there's where it stayed all these years. Every day, my wife and I each get at least one or more advertising impressions from that sticker every time we open or close the garage door. Simple but effective advertising.

"So, when my wife's door spring broke, I told her to call the company on the sticker that was right under our garage door openers. There were also stickers on the garage doors for one of your competitors. They're probably the folks that installed the doors back in 1995 when the house was built but we never see that sticker, we see the Martin Doors sticker every time we go out or come in.

"When my wife called Martin Doors on Monday the was promised a service call between 1 and 4 pm for Monday afternoon. I'm the one who would be home at that time. By 3 pm or so, I hadn't heard from anybody to alert me that they were on the way so I told her to let you folks know that. She called me back and said they were very busy but would definitely get to us that day.

"Some time later, Mike called and said he was finishing up a job on the other side of town and he apologized for missing the 1 pm to 4 pm window. He assured me he'd be there asap.

"A short while later my doorbell rang. I opened the door and the tech. in his Martin Doors uniform introduced himself and apologized immediately for the delay. The monogrammed uniform and his immediate self introduction and apology were effective. They were effective because the instant result of that action by him caused me to be at ease and secure that I knew who was at my door and that they regretted that my time had been encroached upon.

"Effectively, he defused a potentially unpleasant greeting by beating me to the punch and "falling on his sword" all within 4 or 5 seconds of my opening the door.

He had his ladder in his hands and some tools.

"I told him I'd open MY garage door and he could get in THAT way and he replied "GREAT!"

"I moved quickly thru the house to the garage and opened MY garage double door and he was inside in a flash. In less than 15 seconds he assessed the situation and was heading back to his truck for additional supplies.

"He was immediately at work. We exchanged pleasantries and some other conversation but he never stopped working nor did he have to return to his truck. As a result, hi finished the job in what I considered to be blinding speed. Upon completion he lubed up the spring, rails, wheels and then went to my door and lubed it as well! I was surprised. He'd gotten it all done in around 15 minutes!!!! I was a bit shocked when I saw the price for the job bet he explained he doesn't set the prices. I gave him my credit card and was surprised and relieved to see that he used a tablet based application to process the credit card instead of writing down the information. It made me feel secure that my credit info was safe. He thanked me and apologized again for the delay and then shook my hand and wished me a good evening.

"This expensive and "late" service call was overall a very pleasant experience and I think Mike should be recognized for the standards of excellence he demonstrated on this call.

"I would also like to thank Mr. Martin for his follow-up call sometime between 8 and 9 pm that night. You told me you were calling to make sure we'd been served and the problem resolved. This type of customer satisfaction and follow-up is lacking in almost 100% of businesses. The sale isn't over when the bill is paid and the tech leaves. That sale goes on for years. If it's a bad experience it not only goes on for years but it also spreads among friends and neighbors. If it's a good experience it gets shared too but with more positive results.

"Because of a service call for my door several years ago, a Martin Tech put a sticker on the wall where my garage door buttons are. As a result, when my wife's door failed 7 years later, our first though was Lets' call Martin Doors, and we did.

I worked as a sales and marketing for AT&T for 28 years and I have a business. I always impressed on my sales and support people that they sale is not over once the contract is signed or the product/service is provided. you need to always thank the customer for their business and make sure they're satisfied THEN, and it's even a good ideal to call them IN THE FUTURE to see that they're STILL satisfied. It's always a good idea to ask them if they're thinking of making any other changes, or noticing any thing out of the norm and reminding them that if they're needs ever call for Garage door care again, The Martin Doors Sticker is right at their fingertips...like our was.

"Thanks again,

David S"

Inside of GarageGarage Doors get a lot of use every day. A residential garage door usually has a minimum lifespan of 10,000 open-and-close cycles. The length depends on how often the garage door is used and how it is maintained over the years.

An annual tune-up to get the most out of your garage door is recommended, but there are some simple ways to care for your garage door on your own.

Lubricating your garage door rollers every year with garage door lubricant will increase the life of the rollers and cut down on the noise. If you are hearing squeaking sounds there is friction involved and this is not good for the gears in the opener.

Garage door springs are the most important and most dangerous part of your garage door. It provides a counter balance so the door will go up and down smoothly.  Making sure your springs have the right tension is important but this is one thing not recommend to do as a home owner.  Its based on weight of the door a spring size so its best to leave that one to a professional.  However if your springs are making some noise you can spray them with lubricant.  

Worn or frayed cables can easily break. "Visually inspect the cables that attach the spring system to the bottom brackets on both sides of the door. If they are damaged or frayed imediatly contact a professional to replace them before they snap.

If your garage door isn't going up or down check your sensors and make sure they're clean of any dust or debris.  Also check there alignment. If they get bent you have to get them back aligned before your garage door will start working.

Washing and in some cases waxing your garage door will give your garage door new life.

Keep your opener manual.  You never know when you will have to get up there and reset the open and close position of your door. Every model of door and opener has unique instructions to your model.
