Like many people, I ended up in a career that I didn't expect. My name is Chris and my journey into the garage door business began at a friend's birthday party during my time in graduate school. While there, I overheard Nathan, who owned a garage door company called Creative Garage Doors, discussing his difficulties in keeping a full-time employee. Intrigued, I approached him and offered to work part-time if he would train me. This conversation marked the beginning of my career in the industry.

Over the next few years, I gained invaluable experience in running a business by working alongside Nathan. I oversaw operations and scheduling and developed practical skills that proved useful later on.
Eventually, Nathan sold the company and moved away, leaving me uncertain about my future in the garage door business.

However, fate intervened a few months later when I was invited to bid on a significant project in Steamboat Springs. The project involved the installation of 40 new doors at an apartment complex, and it gave me a unique opportunity to build a business from the ground up. Inspired, I started Chris’ Garage Doors and have never looked back since.

Chris' Garage Door team


My garage doors were repaired and serviced within 6 hours of my initial contact with Chris. Technician Sean was prompt, friendly, professional, and did a great job.

Chris got out to our house quickly. Super knowledgeable and great rates! He really went above and beyond and helped both my garage doors work amazing! I would highly recommend!

Chris and his team are wonderful. Used them recently and several times with nothing but praise for them being on time, knowledgeable, friendly, masked up and respectful. Much appreciated!
