Owner: John and Chandra Akins


We are a small family company with almost 40 years in the garage door business. John, our owner, started working for a garage door company straight out of high school. Opening our own company has been a dream we worked towards for years and it finally came true in April 2019.

John leaves home to go on jobs whistling and smiling. He says everyday” it's not really work if you love what you do!” so if you see him driving down your street, give him a wave!

Y'all have a nice day.

Does Your Garage Door Make A Lot of noise?

Try tightening the bolts on every panel to keep them from clanking together when it is opening or closing. Be sure that you don't over-tighten the bolts as it can cause you to strip the heads. Also check to see if your door is balanced as that can cause a door to be noisy.

  • How Can I Tell If My Door Is Balanced?

In order for your garage door to function properly, you need the door to be properly balanced. When it is unbalanced, it will cause additional strain on your opener and potentially cause damage to rollers, tracks, and springs. There are a few ways to check to see if the door is unbalanced. When the door is opening or closing look at the door. You may be able to see that it is not straight. Another thing to consider is how long it is taking to open or close. If it seems to be slowing down then it could be due to being unbalanced. An unbalanced door often makes more noise when it is operating. This is because the weight of the door is straining the opener.

Do I need A Screw Drive, Chain Drive, or Belt Drive Opener?

  • We do not recommend screw drive period and will not install one.
  • Chain drives are great motors for a detached garage as they are a little noisy.
  • Belt drives are great motors for garages that are attached to your home and especially if you have a room above the garage.

At Akins Garage Door Service we only install Chamberlain Garage Door Openers. We Stand Behind All The Work We Do And It Is The Only Opener We Will Stand Behind. Its A Good Hardworking Machine That Will Function For Many Years If Properly Taken Care Of
