Garage Essentials sets the standard in workmanship, customer service, honesty, and integrity for all others to follow. I met Tom when he repaired a garage door for a relative of mine. I was amazed at his level of knowledge with 25 years of engineering experience. You might ask how much do you need to know to to fix a garage door? Tom’s attention to detail means he weighs the door to calculate exactly what type of spring is needed for that exact door so that the garage opener motor does not have to over work to pull up door weight not handled by the springs.

Cutting to the chase, I asked Tom to inspect my garage door because I thought the opener was making too much noise. When he arrived, the first thing he did was weigh the door with the current springs in place. The weight should be zero on the scale, meaning the spring is holding all the weight up when the door is down. In other words you should be able to lift the door with one finger! It turns out the door had 40 pounds in that position, meaning the springs were too weak. When Tom calculated the correct spring, he noted that someone put smaller springs than required, AND, over tightened them to get the door to go up, and still did not have the door balanced. The springs that were on the door (installed in February, 2017), were put on because the company didn’t care to carry all the springs on their truck to do the job right. They didn’t care about quality; and they could care less about their customer. I’m certainly no expert on such matters, but am now well informed by Tom. He replaced the springs at my request, and lo and behold, I could lift the door with one finger, meaning the garage door motor had no unnecessary strain on it!

I am very grateful for Tom’s honesty, integrity, and unwavering professionalism. His pricing is very fair. Fair means getting value for your money, and it goes without saying that Tom benefits as well. I could not ask for any better than that!😄

This guy was phenomenal! I had a problem with my garage and this kind gentlemen got to me within about an hour. He fixed the problem and helped me to understand what exactly went wrong so it doesn’t happen again. He was MORE THAN FAIR with cost and honestly was one of the most responsible business owners I’ve encountered. He was efficient, knowledgeable, fair and quick!

Before he even came out, Tom gave me some great advice about the quality of different garage door and opener brands, which I appreciated. He is very knowledgeable about everything he does with garage doors and openers. He came out the next day to install the opener and was very professional and even arrived early. He noticed something that hadn’t been done improperly (or safely) on my other garage door and corrected it for me. I highly recommend Tom as an expert at what he does. I’m very happy with his service.

Tom from Garage Essentials did a great job on our door. I was fighting with my door for weeks. I called Tom and he came out the same day and fixed my broken spring. He also informed me of the proper setting of my door going up and down for safety as well as the life of the panels on my garage door. This guy is the best!! Thanks Tom!

Tom from Garage Door Essentials was able to come out and replace our broken garage door springs the same day. His workmanship is far better than the last garage repair person (which was our fault).

Tom also provided insight on other useful general maintenance items for our garage door. 

With Tom, when you first meet him, either on the phone or in person, genuine integrity and simplicity (not complicated) resonates. When he comes and you meet in person, you just get that gut-feeling he’s there to take care of not your house, but your “home”.

Tom invested himself into his work on our home as if it were his own; a solid work trait any homeowner greatly appreciates.

Tom is the best!!!  Our door broke and Tom answered our call for help while he was in Japan visiting his son who is serving in the military.  He gave precise instructions and had the parts nearby for me to access – best service I’ve ever experienced and we’ve found someone we will look to for repair service from now on.  Thank you, Tom – so very appreciated.

I called Tom from Garage Door Essentials (208 577-7974) at 7:30 am and he was on-site fixing my garage door at 8 am. He is super knowledgeable and provides great service. I couldn’t be happier!

Tom Tafoya is the best. I would recommend Tom at anytime. He’s HONEST, reliable and extremely knowledgeable. He came out within minutes got the parts and problem solved. He even took the time to look at my other garage door and fixed it right away. By the way his rates and his warranty are by far the best. Do not hesitate to call him. You WILL NOT be disappointed.
