"New Garage door looks and works great. Thanks."
— Bob and Heidi Smuk
"I meet Bob when he came out to look at an ATV I had for sale. After talking about things, I decided to have his crew replace my wore out original garage door. Great to deal with and everything went like he said. Good quality product and excellent to deal with."
— Bill, Hampshire
"Bob does excellent work at an affordable price. We have recommended him to many friends, neighbors and relatives. Everyone has been very pleased with his work. Please use me for a reference whenever it is needed."
— Mary Giovanni, Des Plaines
"We have had service from Makuch twice and have been impressed with them at all levels. From speed of response, within 24 hours...to professionalism of the job. Most recently had a cable snap. Bob returned my 8:00 pm phone call within a half hour. The crew arrived the next morning at 8:00 am exactly when promised and our garage door was repaired within an hour. In addition to the cable, some older door hardware, bolts and rollers were replaced to make the door function as good as new. The 1 year guarantee is frosting on the cake. I don't usually allow contractors to put their "sticker" on my wall. This is one sticker that has a permanent home! Thank you for a job well done. Please use me for a reference whenever it is needed."
— Tom Young, Wilmette
"I'm a Board President for a 24 Unit Condo and have been through quite a few Vendors. Bob from Makuch Doors is by the Best in the Business. He is Reliable & Resonably Priced for the work he does. I highly recommend him."

"Put a new front garage overhead door in and fixed the rear overhead door, in sub-zero weather. Great service in the Northwest suburbs (Des Plaines) of Chicago. I found my go-to company for garage problems."
— George, Des Plaines
"I have a large barn, that we have added on to several times. Bob has now installed a total of 5 overhead doors for me. The largest is 14' tall and glides very smoothly. He is very concerned about doing things correctly which I appreciate. I have referred several friends, who have been pleased with Bob's service."
— Dave K.
"My garage door wasn't closing so I researched companies online with an A+ rating from the BBB. I called Bob and he was able to come after 6PM. In less than an hour, he put much needed new braces and wheels on my door track. The door now has never sounded so quiet and operates so smoothly. Bob's prices are very reasonable. I'd highly recommend him based on his work ethic, prices and flexibility."
— Nick Lekan
"Dear Bob, I wanted to take just a moment to sincerely thank you for the excellent work on my home’s garage doors. You not only repaired and adjusted my attempts to install an opener for our 3rd stall; you were able to significantly quiet down the main door underneath our daughter’s bedroom – a much appreciated improvement. In addition, you were able to solve a complex electrical problem with the Mother Board on one of the units.
We have used your business twice in the past several years – I will happy attest to the great work you have done for us. Please feel free to have anyone call for a reference.
Your consistent high quality work has earned you an outstanding rating from the Better Business Bureau. Thank you."
— Bert Adams
"Bob, Thanks for the quick service on the garage door for the Gorski’s yesterday. They are my sister and brother-in-law and for the second time were very pleased with the job!"

"We found Bob through the BBB website. He arrived right when he said he would, quickly fixed the problem, identified several other issues with our garage door that needed to be fixed, and took care of those as well on the spot. All the while he explained exactly what he was doing and why - all for one low price. And, he's a funny guy!"
I got the contact info by searching through Google. I was quite impressed with Bob's work on our garage doors. He saved us a lot of money(about $250.00)Other guys had told us to replace few panels and they were charging for the panels and installation, etc. But Bob repaired the existing door without replacing the panels and made it quieter. I would highly recommend him for anyone with any garage door problems. I will rate him 5 out of 5.
He is a nice guy!
"Snow and icy cold didn't stop Bob Makuch from doing a fabulous job fixing our inside and outside garage openers to work perfectly and equipping us with updated equipment. We were one of Makuch Garage Doors' earliest customers. He had wowed us with his precise and great-looking work. A lot of time had passed and we hadn't even minimally taken care to use the equipment properly. I was frantically trying to get our home ready for the ambulance bringing my husband home from rehab. The door would just have to ope - but I didn't see how.
A lot of outdoor workers weren't even trying to work in that weather, but Bob showed up with enthusiasm and confidence. He patiently listened to my teary babble and then did it up right. I wish everything in my house worked so well! I would have paid more, without complaint. But I now know Bob well enough to say that he is hard-wired for honesty--and then discounts what that price would be. You simply cannot do better."
“I built a new garage and had Bob & Co. put in the new doors needed. My neighbor had gotten a new door from Bob, and it looked great. So, after getting a couple bids and talking with Bob, I decided to give him the job.
He did a great job, on schedule, and I couldn't be happier with going with one of his recomended doors.
He'll be the one I refer to my friends and customers looking for garage door work."

“Bob Makuch is a great installer. My office building wasn't a simple install and needed many extra visits to make it perfect. Well, today the system is perfect and the 23 cars that visit the building are very happy with Makuch Garage Door. It's nice to receive a follow up call weeks after the install was complete. Not too many contractors I've worked with do that."
“Bob came out in August of 2009 to fix the garage door. On Friday Oct 23rd, one of the door rollers became unhinged. I called Bob at 7am in the morning expecting him to come in a few days to make the repair. Instead Bob said he would be there sometime during the day. At 6pm my thoughts were he would come another day. Instead I saw a light shined on my address and it was Bob coming to my house at 6:30 on a Friday night.
He spent close to an hour working on my garage door, reinforcing the hinges, and lubricating the necessary spots. This is the third or fourth time I have had Bob work on my old garage door. I have been totally satisfied with Bob's professionalism and I have recommended him to my brother and other friends.
I would highly recommend Bob to anyone who needs work on their garage. I am 53 years old and this is the first time in my life I have been motivated to write a testimonial. And also by the way, Bob has a tremendous sense of humor. His honesty is something you do not see in the service industry."
“I had a garage door repaired by Bob Makuch. He does a thorough and expert job at a reasonable price. And he is straightforward, courteous, and helpful, even though I had only some repairs to do. He carefully explains why he did what he did to fix my garage door; he also explains what you need to do to maintain it. He does not talk down to you or treat you like an idiot (unlike some other contractors I\'ve had the misfortune of dealing with). In short, he is everything you would want to have in a contractor. On the basis of my experience, I cannot recommend him highly enough."
— Peter M George
“I have used Makuch Garage Door for a door repair and an installation of a garage door opener. The service was superb. Bob and his crew were there when they said they would be and did an excellent job. The value was also top notch. I would gladly recommend Makuch Garage Door for any garage and overhead door service."

“Pick Makuch to fix your garage door needs. Excellent service. Bob took down my garage opener and reattached it to the ceiling because he thought it didn't look right. I didn't even place the service call for that. I had a totally different problem. He went totally above the level of service I was expecting. He swept the garage floor when he was done too! Very reasonable pricing and Bob stands behind his work.
Unfortunately, I won't be calling him again. Bob did such a great job, the work should last for years."
(Des Plaines, IL)
“Thank you, Bob, for repairing our garage door today. Last night, after our garage door would not open more than 4 inches with our opener, I looked and realized one of the torsion springs broke. After looking online, it was clear that I should call someone to do the repair, and it was recommended to look for someone rated by the Better Business Bureau rather than just looking for someone in the telephone book.
I checked the BBB site, and found that Makuch Door Company was rated A+ with zero complaints in the past 36 months. I gave them a call this morning, and was pleased and surprised to find out that someone could come out just a couple hours after I called, even though they are located almost 20 miles away from where I live. The cost I was quoted was very reasonable, based on what I read on the internet.
The repair was completed in less than an hour, and Bob even looked everything over and lubricated the door and opener mechanism, something that was beyond what I paid for or expected, but was very happy he did, nonetheless, for my peace of mind.
Everything was handled professionally, courteously and efficiently. It is clear that they know what they are doing and they do the job right.
I highly recommend Makuch Door Company to anyone with any kind of garage door problem!"
— A. D.
“Makuch Garage Door Company is very professional.
Makuch Door Company came out and replaced both door springs and the bottom door seal in less than an hour and a half. He has very reasonable pricing. Give this guy a chance and you will not be sorry.

“My door needed some serious attention. When it did work, it sounded like a freight train rumbling through my house. Bob came out quickly and got my door working, and sounding, good as new. Highly reccomended!"
“Bob got to my house when he said he would, promptly returned my phone calls and stands behind his work 100%. I would recommend him to anyone!"
— Scott D.
“After efficiently installing a garage door purchased elsewhere, Makuch provides excellent follow-up service when needed. Prices are reasonable and the job is done well."
