Poor execution and low service quality

I purchased a house and planned a renovation of my garage. I thought I should start by the flooring, so I called Garage Living for a quote. The salesperson checked my garage and told me that I should fix everything first and leave the floor for last.
So, that is what I did: new concrete floor, baseboard, drywall, including a new paint job. I called them back and finally the salesperson agreed that the garage was ready for the flooring. Given that everything was new, I expressed to the salesperson my concern with potential damages to the newly painted walls. I specifically asked if Garage Living used protective tape to protect the walls from spilling of the coating. The answer I received from the salesperson was that they did not put tape, but not to worry – they were very meticulous in their job and everything would be perfect.
Not surprisingly, the crew ended up damaging the paint near the baseboard all over the garage, as seen in the pictures. I contacted the salesperson to complain, and no apology was made, no recognition of what was done wrong: just a simple answer that they would fix it, as if this was the normal procedure in every job.
The problem is: how can I trust the fixer not to further damage my garage, giving that they do not protect properly the nearby area? I ended up calling a contractor to repaint the wall, this time doing it right and using a protective tape.
In the end, I was truly disappointed with Garage Living and its culture of believing that doing it the wrong way and fixing it later is acceptable. In my opinion, service quality means doing it right the first time.

Garage organization

They came out quickly for a quote on installing slatwall wall organizers in our 2 car garage. After the initial quote it took quite a while to get the design and firm up an install date. The 3D design was appreciated but once we decided to move forward it took many call/emails before we could finally get something booked so communication/customer service could be improved.

Ultimately we were very happy with the product and installation. The installation was flawless and they filled every square inch of our garage wall with the material they had, utilizing the space perfectly. They took extra care to cut around our central vac and used some left over material to cover another area we had for no extra charge. The system itself is great, very easy to move all the accessories around and they have different accessories to organize everything. The accessories are on the pricier side but I think worth it if you are looking for ultimate organization in the garage. Would recommend (as long as you can be patient on getting dates confirmed)!

Fantastic work, garage looks beautiful

We called in a few contractors to do epoxy coating on our garage floor. Some of the contractors looked like they were going to use the Home Depot Kit and charge me around the same price as garage living. However, as their team worked from 8am to 330 pm they sanded down the floor, fixed my cracks, filled the holes, and now the garage looks beautiful. The material and sealant they used is like non other. Everything just wipes off easily and I find myself spending more time working out in the garage than inside the house. Very professional team and if you call them for advice on how to maintain or if your adding things on top of the floor, they guide you how to do it right!

Good service, thank you.

I called the Garage Living to replace the garage door in my house. The whole took 2 days, which is much faster than I expected. The specialist came on time with all the necessary equipment and cleaned up everything after works. On the first day, he removed the old doors and replace them with the new, and on the second day, he finished the installation and waterproofing. Good service, thank you.

Warranty issue

Garage Living installed a Floortex Garage coating in 08/12/2016 claiming a 10 year warranty. I am having an issue of the coating peeling where it was installed on the outside of the garage door. They claim this area is not covered under warranty. My question is why would they install the coating there knowing there could be an issue in the future that would not be covered under warranty?

New Garage Door

My experience with Garage Living for my new garage door was excellent. While unfortunately, the garage door needed to be replaced a couple of times due to a manufacturer defect; fortunately, I hired Garage Living to handle this for me. As a customer, it can be frustrating when the product you ordered is not what you receive. When this happens, it is an opportunity for your supplier to either fail or shine. In my case, Garage Living, and specifically Daniel C., assured me that customer satisfaction was of the utmost importance. Daniel personally worked with the supplier to make sure that the door was replaced and met the quality standard that he expected and that I expected. Thank you to Daniel and the team at Garage Living. Your support and commitment to excellence has created a customer for life!

Children's Closets

We were thoroughly impressed with Garage Living from beginning to end. The finished closets look amazing. I was also very impressed with how quickly garage sent us quotes and designs with the measurements we sent him. After his first visit to our home he was back within a few weeks to complete our project. I would highly recommend Garage Living!
