GARAGE DOORS:

Based on an informal survey of the community, five neighbors said they used Farmer Garage Door (865-675-2033) and were very satisfied with their service. From B.N. on 7/1/24:  “We just had Farmer Garage Door Company put in new springs last week after ours broke. The cost was only $399.00 total.  Their company sticker was on our garage door as the original installers.”

Two others used Precision Garage Door Service; a recent call to fix a broken spring cost about $1,000, but it got fixed quickly and to the neighbor’s satisfaction. (865) 539-3656
