Understanding the safety risks that exist with any garage door opener is a critical step forward to preventing potential injury.  Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has established UL325 Standards providing guidelines for safety accessories to either be added to existing garage door openers* or recommends new garage door openers be installed with the latest advances in safety systems to replace your out of compliance opener.

SAFETY NOTICE standard safety devices on electrically powered doors require routine inspections from qualified technicians to ensure proper operation. To learn more about approved UL325 safety devices that can reduce the risk of injury, contact your Central State representative today.

*Certain brand or age garage door openers cannot be made UL325 compliant.

Mindy is top notch and made it easy to deal with Central State. Your technician was knowledgeable, courteous and professional.

- Morris M

I enjoyed working with Andy and Mike to get our doors repaired. Both of you did a great job and I was very pleased with the results. I greatly appreciate the discounted price you are charging us. With finances tight it really helps!! I will talk to the Executive Director and find out if he will approve the repair on the safety items. Thanks again for being so personable and patient.

- B Delancey

This note is to commend your technician Zack for the good job he did when he repaired our garage door on Wednesday. The young man was very professional and appeared to detect the door problems immediately. He repaired the door and explained to me what he had found to be the problems. We are most grateful as the garage door now operates more quietly and smoothly than when it was installed. Please extend our thanks to him for a job well done.

- Mrs. Smedley

Thanks to “Vinnie”, he saved our summer. What a gem!!!

Just a note to the general manager. I had new springs installed of my two garage doors last week. A spring on each of the doors failed and had to be replaced. Your technician Mike M. checked the problem and told me what had to be done and within an hour or so completed the installation and made sure both doors operated properly and safely. Mike was courteous, efficient and knew what he was doing. He did an excellent job and could not have been a better representative for your company. Employees like him are a key reason why we always have been a customer of your company.

- Fran F.

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Alan for helping Sue and I to select a new garage door. We are very pleased with the door. It enhances our home and will look even better once our new siding is installed. The gentlemen who installed the door, Tom was very nice and very professional. Thank you again. We will recommend you and Central State to our friends and neighbors.

- C. Beckley

Bruce just departed leaving us with a beautiful new door. He did an outstanding job installing the door. He is fast, well organized and neat. You can be proud of this fine representative of Central State. Your field rep was also outstanding. I retired from Triple Crown a few years ago. I did their quality and safety work plus annual contractor and supplier evaluations. You would get an outstanding all around for this job. Thanks. Your are appreciated. Warm regards,

- D. Johnson

Just had a new garage door and liftmaster opener installed by Marty today. He did an outstanding job!!! We are very pleased with our purchase and the great service. Thanks!

- James and Tammy H.

Should you ever need an unsolicited testimony, I would be happy to give it to you for the wonderful work your technicians have done when they installed my garage door in 1999 and yesterday when they replaced my door opener which was struck by lightning on Sunday night. Mindy handled the appointment which was more than I ever hoped for, Jarrod helped us release the old opener so that we could manually get our cars out and put in a slide lock for our safety. It was all done with no hassle much quicker than I ever hoped it would be and with such competency and courtesy from all of the men. It was a real pleasure to do business with them. They are above the usual service people and I thought you should know what assets they are to your business. I have told all the people I have spoken with how very accommodating they were and how much I appreciated the help they gave me. Sincerely yours.

- M Dooley

It has been a long time since I have been happy with work done at my home. I will definitely refer you to anyone I know who is looking to replace garage door openers or garage doors. I was also extremely impressed with Jarrod who went out of his way to make me happy. Thank you- job well done.

- Trish A.

Thank you for your kind assistance with the replacement of our garage door. Your installer did an excellent job and the door looks great.

- R Fields

I just wanted to thank you for the work that Cory and Todd completed yesterday. It looks good and the garage doors open and close so much more smoothly now. Please make sure to pass on my compliments to them and share this with their supervisors.

Cory and Todd were both very well-spoken and explained things carefully, which (to me) reflected professionalism. They kept me in the loop in terms of what they were doing and updating me with the progress. They presented me with a couple of items so that I could make a decision, which allowed them to proceed from there. I do appreciate Cory and Todd taking the time to include me in the process. They also had a couple of ideas to help me extend the life of my current garage doors as well as maintaining the new openers and springs installed. I am quite pleased with the overall experience.

Also, thanks for doing a thorough a job in terms of examining the overall items that needed to be replaced, installed, or improved. I have already spoken to a neighbor who inquired about new garage door openers for his home. I don't know if (or when) he may contact you but the work did not go unnoticed.

Thanks for a pleasant and positive experience.

- Don S.

Sales - Alan visited my home twice and was very professional, knew his product extremely well and was customer oriented.  We decided to go with your firm notbased on dollars. There was one competitor cheaper - but follow-up by Alan.  The cheaper competitor canceled one appointment and was a no show for another. Alan always responded and did an excellent job for us.

Installation - The gentlemen, Cory was on time and completed his work in a professional manner.  Other than a new door and mechanics being in place, one could not tell he was even there.  No mess.  Excellent clean up.  The company should be reminded he did the entire job himself that day - no assistant.  He was alone.  Great job!

The Door - We could not be more pleased.  Quality product, operates quietly and looks great!

I will refer my neighbors and friends in the future.

Thanks to Alan, Cory and your whole team!

- Ted & Pat S.

I love my new opener that Jarrod installed. I was so impressed with how quickly you got there and installed it. It’s so much quieter than the old unit. Your mechanic was great. He showed me how everything worked and how to program the key pad. Great Job!

- Carrie C

Just wanted to you to know… your people did a really good job again! From Alan visiting/quoting… to the installer who was a really good communicator, a good worker and a good representative for CSD. As always…thank you! Trust all is well!!

- Gary H.

Great Job Vince! It works better than ever.

- Milt

You should be proud of your employee that worked for me. Thank you.

You are nice gentlemen. You can expect great word of mouth advertising.

- Bob P

I just want to tell you like always your service is top-notch. I had scheduled the 20-point service for Tuesday, June 19th and your service tech. Freddie, was on time and very professional. From the time I purchased the doors from Allison Door, you have always been first class. Thank You.

- Joyce H.

I am having a lot of repairs done at my home and just wanted to let you know that the gentlemen, Zack who left my home was polite, courteous, quick, and did a great job. I am used to calling to complain. Customer service is so important and your company does this very well. Please let the boss know how good my experience was.

- Mrs. Milikan

Zack did a great job fixing our garage.

Just wanted to pass along how professional your man was Friday afternoon while fixing our garage door.

It was a pleasure dealing with a friendly tech who knew his job, got to work immediately and explained everything.

- George K

Just wanted to let you know that your guy, Vince was out at my house yesterday to work on my door and I was very impressed with how thorough he was. I thought he would just grease a few things and head out, but he took the time to fix all of the mechanical issues and get the door working more efficiently than the day it was put in. Thanks again.

- R Hughes

Thank you Kim and all the fellows who came and helped me. My thanks to you all for being king during this great loss of my beloved husband. You all are doing Gods work to help others & you will get a reward in heaven. Tell all my thanks.

Recently, your company installed a new garage door system at my house in Carlisle and serviced existing doors at my building in downtown Harrisburg. Marty and Randy have been very professional in their respective roles. More importantly though was the service your technicians provided. They are skilled at their work and pleasant to deal with which unfortunately has become too rare today. I will certainly refer people to your company. Thank you.

- J Male

Thank you very much for saving our anniversary dinner by giving such wonderful service. I know we lucked out by having someone close by, but we appreciated you saving our day. Your technician who is normally on the commercial route came over and fixed our garage. He was friendly, efficient and had our door working again. He deserves a raise, especially with a baby on the way. Tell him we said hi and thank you.

- Michael S.

Angie, I appreciate you're getting back to me.  After being in business my entire life,  it is great to see some professionalism still exists.  As a retired CEO I have 6 Peer groups at The High Family Business Center so I really appreciate your immediate response to our concern.  Thank you again, I would be glad to meet you and your staff sometime in the future.
