I just saw all the nice reviews about Marty, so I decided to give him a call since I needed to increase the travel on my door. On an early Saturday morning he answered my call, and rather than come out to my house, and charge me anything, or tell me I needed a spring replacement, he asked me a few simple questions about my door, and in a 5 minute, patient conversation, he walked me through each step of the simple process to increase the door travel range. Marty is worth all the honest praises he’s getting on Yelp. I will add his contact info and definitely use and refer him to anyone I know that needs a good garage repair/installer. Thank you for your help Marty.

Marty came out with a last minute call at about 6:30pm, and he was fantastic. I had a broken spring, and he had the parts and the know- how. Really nice guy and fair pricing too!

-Mitch B. | Mission Viejo

We contacted Absolute Garage Doors based on their Yelp review. (We had contacted another company prior, but they had dropped the ball on our order! We placed an order with them, which they made us wait for 3 weeks- only to find out that they never ordered it at all!)

We had Marty remove our old garage door and install a new carriage door. He was prompt & courteous, offered us a reasonable price and got the job done. You might find a cheaper price elsewhere for a new garage door installation, but you won’t get Marty’s customer service or his attention to detail. I highly recommend him!!

-Serena J. | Mission Viejo

I called one garage door repair company that was highly rated yesterday when our garage door came off the cables (still haven’t received a call back from them).We couldn’t manually open or close the door and it was part way open! I called this company and Marty answered the phone. It was obvious that he was driving and pulled over to talk to me. After explaining our situation, Marty arrived within minutes! He was able to repair the door and was a nice guy! I highly recommend this business if you are needing garage door repair!

-Pat M. | Mission Viejo

This owner operator, Marty, is fair, honest and timely. I contacted him on Easter Sunday and he made came by first thing Monday morning. Marty seemed to be straight shooter and gave me the most cost efficient option to repair my door. He carries all the parts with him in his truck and did the job quickly and efficiently. The price was more than fair and I will definitely be recommending him to all my friends.

-Richard F. | Mission Viejo

Marty was great! He arrived on time. He did a thorough job of evaluating all of the issues with my garage door and then explained all of my options. I will call him again if I need my garage doors repaired.

-Annette F. | Mission Viejo

Amazing same day service! Our garage was unbalanced and Marty came out within 20 minutes of me calling and fixed it in another 20 minutes. He didn’t overcharge us and I felt I paid a good price for
what he did. He’s honest and upfront and I’ll definitely call him again for any help with repairs or new installation.

-Michelle S. | Mission Viejo

Had a broken spring today. These guys came out and fixed it on the same day. I highly recommend them!

-Dwight B. | Mission Viejo

My garage door was acting wonky and after looking at so many companies on here when I stumbled upon Absolute Garage Doors looking at these reviews made me have confidence in contacting Marty to see if he could help. He contacted me back right away and scheduled to come out the next day to do a free estimate. How awesome is this!!!

Marty goes above and beyond when it comes to his business. He was super friendly (which is hard to come by now a days), punctual or even early (which is a plus in my book), explained and showed me what was going on with the gears on my garage (hardly anyone does this), and let me know the condition of it and in the future what would need to be replaced with approximate pricing.

I really liked that he spent the time and did not rush in explaining things in helping me learn as a homeowner about how my garage door mechanism works.

Marty is probably one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have ever met when it comes to hiring someone. He will not rip you off, gives quality service, and is true to his word. You can tell by the AWESOME service Marty gives that he has a true passion for what he does and that makes all the difference in the world. I would ABSOLUTELY hands down recommend his services to anyone.

-Tamara C. | Laguna Niguel

A couple of months ago our garage door malfunctioned and it would not open. After calling several companies and getting quoted high prices, we felt comfortable with our phone conversation with Marty and arranged for him to service our garage door. He came over very quickly, punctual in the time he quoted and fixed our door in a very timely manner. He replaced the springs, checked all our hinges and checked to make sure it was operating correctly. His rate was reasonable, very much what he quoted over the phone and didn’t add any of those ‘hidden charges’ so many companies do or try to upsell us anything. Nice guy, good at what he does! Thanks Marty!!

-Akemi B. | Laguna Niguel

Marty was absolutely wonderful. He was on time, did what he said he would do and finished when he said he would. Had great suggestions and his prices are upfront and very reasonable. Honest, hardworking and a nice guy. I highly recommend him.

-Susan L. | Laguna Niguel

This is also my second time with Marty. The first time he replaced the door and spring, and now, several years later a new motor. Marty’s advice on what your situation requires is based on what is the best solution for you – not what costs the most. He is reliable and a decent guy who does great work!

-Jack H. | Laguna Niguel

Marty, the owner/operator of the firm, is as good as it gets. Timely, honest, and reasonable pricing.

Now here is my story… Sunday morning getting back from getting bagels and my garage door only partly opens. After my involvement, the sprocket to the motor flies off and I must get a new motor. The motor has not been repaired/replaced since I moved into my home in 2003, and the motor is a 2000 year model so I know a replacement was in the near future. But on a Sunday! I was worried I would have to leave my garage unsecured all night and even worse, take a day off of work to coordinate a repair.

I used yelp for the first time to research something other than food, and came upon Marty with Absolute Garage Doors. One phone call (he answered on a Sunday within a few rings), I explained I needed a new motor, and he quoted me a price. He gave me a timeframe that he would arrive at my house, and actually arrived timely within minutes of the stated start timeframe.. fantastic!

Marty explained everything about the install in detail as we chatted while he worked. Unlike most contractors, he is very personable and seemed to enjoy his work and discussing the repair/replacement. Upon completion his quoted price in our initial phone call was also the actual billing price, which is a definite positive. Marty even took the time to program my vehicles to open the garage door after he thoroughly cleaned up his work area.

I have plans to replace my garage door next, and Marty will be definitely who I call. I could not have had a better experience.

-G. | Laguna Niguel

Marty Dimon just completed the installation of a LiftMaster – Belt Drive garage door opener. I was very pleased talking with Marty on Monday and today even more satisfied as Marty installed our new unit. We had an old chain drive that was very noisy & jerked very hard on opening.

Marty was prompt, professional, and I’m very happy to endorse Absolute Garage Doors to all that read this review. I have 100% confidence in Marty and his business. We will definitely tell our friends to call Marty/Absolute if they need any service, parts, or replacement of Garage Doors and/or Openers.

-Len W. | Aliso Viejo

Marty Rocks!

I had a broken spring. He came out same day at the time he said he would. He not only replaced the springs, but he inspected the rest of my door and motor to make sure all is well. He found some additional things, bearings, cables, missing screws, that needed replacing/fixing and took care of it. He explained what and why he was doing things and showed me the worn parts.

In the end, my door is quieter and smoother than it was and the price was right. Marty is honest, thorough and he knows what he is doing. I will be calling him again, although he said I probably wouldn’t need to.

Thanks Marty! p.s. ask him about his warranty on parts and labor. You’ll be stoked.

-Robert S. | Aliso Viejo

Marty was excellent. He showed up within the agreed time window, quickly diagnosed the problems left by Precision Garage Doors, detailed the garage door opener options I had, answered my questions, and went right to work. I would highly recommend him and Absolute Garage Doors. Work was finished inside of 2 hours, including fixing all the problems left over from a prior repair by a company that totally hosed me. Marty’s thorough work found one of the cables picking up the door was frayed and ready to snap. With a 2-year old son and a little girl on the way, the last thing I want to worry about is my garage door. Thanks Marty for clearing that problem for me.

 Eric M. | Aliso Viejo

After researching several Garage door servicers on the internet, I contacted Absolute Garage Door. Marty gave me an estimate over the phone where other servicers gave me some long winded explanation on how technical it was to determine what type of spring replacement I would require. When Marty arrived he was very
knowledgeable and you could tell he had been doing this a long time…….very well trained. Quality of work is great, and Marty didn’t try to pressure me into purchasing any additional work than needed. He even went as far as to inspect my garage motor at no additional charge and adjusted for optimal performance. Price was very fair. Would definitely recommend services.

-Gregory S B. | Aliso Viejo

This review is long overdue. One day my garage in my 8-year old townhome stopped working. I called some company off yelp and the owner was out of town. Marty from Absolute Garage Doors was handling all his inquires.

I told Marty about my problem and fortunately he was able to stop by the same day. He looked at my garage door and quickly diagnosed the problem. He fixed my garage in less than 20 minutes and was on his way. A few days later, my garage door had more issues. I called Marty and again, he was able to come by in a few hours. Marty realized that one of springs he used was a little off and he fixed it free of charge.

Marty is a professional, honest and hard-working guy. I would recommend him to anyone who needs garage door service. His customer service is excellent and his prices are competitive. That’s why he gets 5 stars!

-Andy B.

Marty from Absolute Garage Doors is a real pro. Both of my garage door’s two main springs broke at 6:00pm on a Sunday. I called him on a neighbor’s recommendation, and he was more than happy to come out that evening. Marty was at my house an hour later, and did not even charge me extra for the Sunday evening service! Marty knew exactly what was wrong and exactly how to fix it. He put on a larger, safer spring than the cheap-skate contractor who was hired by my home’s builder put on originally. Marty explained to me how the safety features should work and tested it right in front of me. He’s also just a really nice guy and we talked about our motorcycles for a while, too. I now consider him to be “my garage door guy,” and will be recommending him to my neighbors and family.

-Brad D.

We came home from out of town and couldn’t open our garage door. We realized that the spring broke and needed to get it fixed ASAP as we were also having issues without front door lock. We called Absolute Garage Doors and Marty answered right away and gave us a window which was only an hour after we called. He arrived, fixed the problem and was very nice. Definitely recommend him.

-Susan P.

I was suspicious when I saw the 5 star rating but I must say it was deserved. Marty (owner operator) knew exactly what was wrong right away and went right to it. He came pretty much at the time he had promised on a Saturday with about a 4 hr warning. The problem was a broken cable that should have been replaced when the last guy had come in to replace the springs. The price was reasonable given it was a weekend and such short notice. My home insurance (First American) called 4 people and none wanted to come on a weekend.

-JJ F.

Marty is great! He examined our garage door and said that the installation was incorrect to begin with. He offered to talk to our builder over the phone and explain his findings. He is right! The builder’s rep came with the garage door installer and fixed it for free although it is out of warranty. I will definitely go to Marty in the future for garage door problems.

-X L.

Our garage door spring broke and was coming off the railing. Marty came out right away. He fixed it within an hour. He explained everything thoroughly. There were some parts that he said that needed to be replac

-J M.


Garage door broke on a Friday night. I called several places that advertised 24hr or extended hour service but none answered their phones. I finally got hold of Marty. He was able to make it on short notice and did a great job. Door runs smoother than it originally did.

-Robert T.

Super friendly service, knowledgeable and affordable. Was at my house on a Saturday within a few hours of the phone call.

-Jason P.

If you are looking for garage door repair work or a new garage door, call Marty at Absolute Garage Doors. What you will get is a very experienced, honest and delightful worker who did an amazing job for us. We had a hole in our garage door and were looking at several thousand dollars to replace it.

Marty was creative and capable enough to come up with a way to repair it with a steel plate and it has been working perfectly. Marty is a great guy with a great attitude and was a joy to work with. CALL CALL CALL!

-Shannon S.

My garage door in my new home in Ladera Ranch was installed too low for my SUV to access the garage. Several letters from my association over the past few years prompted me to fix the problem.

After calling several local garage door companies and being told it could not be adjusted to allow access Marty from Absolute came up with a solution. He was able to remount the door and tracks 18″ higher. Hopefully builders will take note and use more knowledgeable garage door installers.

Marty was very honest and forthcoming with options and details and the first service industry professional I have ever had show up on time. I would defiantly recommend him to my friends.

-Heather E.

Marty came out today to replace 2 broken springs and worn out cables. He did a great job and we are happy with the work and service. When I called this morning and let him know I needed the job done asap, he offered to come out right away. He called me after his other job was completed and let me know he’s on his way. He completed the work in just under an hour. So, basically everything from the first call to completing the job was all done within the same morning. Can’t ask for more than that. He gave me a lifetime warranty on the springs, 10 year warranty on the cables and 30 day labor.

-Brian M.

Called Marty after calling a couple of his competitors. He was the only one that would give me a precise estimate for the work I requested to be done on our garage door. Not only did he do a great job, the price was exactly as he quoted over the phone. Fair pricing and friendly service! I am also in the service industry and prefer owner operated companies. He also installed a remote access opener and spent the extra time it took to get it working, even though he had another job to do at 6:30pm. I will send you referrals from anyone looking for a Honest, reliable Garage door company! Thanks again!!

-Jesse M.

No need for you to go anywhere else. Call Marty before you waste your time and money. Too bad there’s not an option to give more stars. Marty from Absolute Garage Doors deserves 10+ Stars. There is a hundred companies I could have called and I tried my luck with a few. One company showed up and the technician showed up in his personal car without a clipboard or something to write with. Bad sign. The second company I called showed up late and wanted me to pay a crazy amount of money. When everyone else said they could come until three days later Marty made it happen. He showed up on the same day and fixed my garage door for a beyond fair price. Awesome guy. Honest, quick, and great quality.

-Hector P.

I needed someone to come out today to help with garage door issue at a condo I am leasing. I called Marty in the morning and he was able to come out same day and resolve the issue. He did what he said what he would do and he charged me exactly what he told me over the phone. I would definitely use him again.

John D.

I don’t know what else I can add to the awesome reviews Marty already had, but he and the guy with him (sorry didn’t get his name) were awesome. The motor on the garage door started smoking Thursday night, called him Friday late afternoon around 5pm and said he can come on Saturday around the same time. Just really nice guys, we felt comfortable with the quotes and the equipment installed. He made sure the door was in perfect working condition and even added a key pad for outside at no charge. I would recommend Absolute Garage Doors in a heart beat. Great job guys, thanks again!

-Barbara B.

This is the first time I had to deal with installing a new motor for our garage door, and I had no knowledge whatsoever about garage door motors. I decided to yelp the best garage door companies in the Lake Forest area and came across two companies, one of them was All Star Garage Door Services, which I called and left a message, in about 30 min, I called again to leave another message since I didn’t get a call back.

-Ally L.

I got a call from Marty a little while later, and he said the owner of All Star Jim refers some of the business to him. Marty came around 7 pm and he finished the job around 9:30 pm, I commend him for his professionalism, although he didn’t know if I was going to ask him to do the job when he first came out, he still listened to me and what our needs were: price, quality of motor, and quality of work. He takes time to do each job well, which probably explains why he didn’t call me right at 6 pm, but I’m chill about that, as long as he does a good job, I don’t mind the time being a little flexible.

Anyhow, Marty did such an amazing job!!!! There’s an issue with how much space there is between the garage door and the beam in my garage, long story short, I wasn’t sure if a regular motor is doable. My dad originally had another guy come out who claimed that he CANNOT fit anything and had to use a jackshaft (a motor that goes on the side), not only was that expensive ($560) AND we had to reroute one of our pipes in the garage that’ll cost another $100. But as soon as Marty looked at our garage door, he said we could possibly fit a Liftmaster belt drive there, since it’s thinner than a Liftmaster Screw Drive Motor. I just really appreciated his honesty and work attitude, it never hurts to try, and we ended up fitting the motor in perfectly.

I saved closed to $200 just by letting Marty do the work – TRYING and SUCCEEDING in fitting in a regular motor (not a jackshaft). He says he loves what he does and I think that’s probably why he does an amazing job! I would totally recommend him to my friends and family.

I needed a new garage door opener. My brother in law knew Marty from Absolute and asked him to come by my home. Marty quoted me a price and came back later in the day and installed the unit. Gave me a good price, was clean and efficient. Would definitely recommend Marty and Absolute to others.

-D S.

Marty is the best. Honest, professional, skilled and trustworthy. We highly recommend him for your garage door needs. He gave us a very reasonable Quote and scheduled us in two days later. We now have a quiet, new, nice looking, working garage door. Hire Marty! He is licensed, bonded and insured!

-Mrs. T.

Marty could do his job blindfolded…he is THAT good. This is the second time that I damaged my opener. He knows how… has the parts with him and is reasonably priced. Don’t bother with the others… you found the best.

-Corvette Jim G.

Marty did an outstanding job on my garage door repairs. I was able to speak with him and arrange the repair the same day I called. He completed the repairs in a timely period, provided a warranty, and explained everything he had done. I highly recommend as a most professional as well as personable contractor.

Marty Dimon just completed the installation of a LiftMaster – Belt Drive garage door opener. I was very pleased talking with Marty on Monday and today even more satisfied as Marty installed our new unit. We had an old chain drive that was very noisy & jerked very hard on opening.

Marty was prompt, professional, and I’m very happy to endorse Absolute Garage Doors to all that read this review. I have 100% confidence in Marty and his business. We will definitely tell our friends to call Marty/Absolute if they need any service, parts, or replacement of Garage Doors and/or Openers.

-Ken M.

Marty is a professional and true to his commitment. His workmanship is top notch but it’s his customer service that made its mark. I would recommend his services to anyone needing garage door service.

-Tony G.

Saw good Yelp reviews and called Marty. He came by the next day and helped me extend the life of my garage door and opener. This had been my hope. Fast, reasonable. I am very pleased.

-Mary N.

Second time I’ve used Marty, fast and reliable and reasonable. Be aware of anyone else saying they are Absolute!

-Steven M.

Marty is great. Called him late Monday night with a garage door that had a broken spring, and couldn’t be opened. He was at my place Tuesday morning and had it fixed within an hour or so. Not only did a spring need to be replaced, but the cables had so much wear to them, that they would have broken next if not replaced. Honest pricing and considerate service. I ‘ll take that any day. Would highly recommend.

-JR M.

I’ve got to say, working with Marty was a great experience. He answered the phone personally, which I really like, and he was early rather than late, which is an added bonus to me. And then he was very knowledgeable about the doors. This was my first time using him, and I was very impressed by his knowledge of how a door is supposed to go up and down. I had no idea there was so much to it. He was in and out quickly, and he didn’t overcharge me or try to upsale me. All in all, a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Absolute to my friends.

-Sharon G.

Marty is awesome. He has taken care of multiple properties for me. This company is owner operated and they will take care of you the first time no nonsense and great prices.

-Max K.

He did good quality work at a reasonable price. He came when he said he would and explained the equipment thoroughly.

-Robert B.

I’ve used Marty in two occasions and he’s been great to work with. He’s punctual, reasonably priced and gets the job done right, the first time. I highly recommend him for any of your garage needs

-Natasha S.

Our spring broke and we couldn’t open the garage door. We needed someone to come out quickly. Absolute had the quickest response and came out within 3 hours. He replaced the spring and the price was as quoted over the phone, which was competitive. He also helped us to reprogram our car remotes and didn’t charge us. Great customer service!

-Joe P.

Can confirm, Marty is an honest and trustworthy dude – he deserves your business if you need help. He could have charged me whatever he wanted – I’m a garage door rookie and had some junk in front of the sensors – I wouldn’t have known any better. I thought it was busted, and he was here the next morning. He showed me what was wrong, how to avoid it, and went on about his day. I couldn’t be happier to know that the next time I need real help, I know exactly who to call

-Josh P.
