Pioneer Door can handle garage doors to automatic gates

Things are going quite well at Pioneer Door in Oxford.

“Sales were good last year. We were up again,” said Greg Shick, who co-owns and operates the 1100 S. Lapeer Rd. business with his wife, Dawn. “We’re looking forward to another great year.”

Demand for stylish and sturdy new ga- rage doors is up on both the residential and commercial sides.

Pioneer Door continues to offer its cus- tomers a 10 percent discount on all the prod- ucts it carries. “We like to offer people a good deal and we like to show our customers how much we appreciate their trust and their busi- ness,” Shick said. “You don’t need to clip a coupon or wait to see a special newspaper ad. Just mention it and we’ll give it to you.” Pioneer Door is quite busy these days in- stalling automatic gates and openers in rural areas where homeowners have long and winding driveways.

Folks in those parts place on a high value on their privacy and security, so they like to make sure their homes and properties are pro- tected from trespassers, thieves, looky-loos and unwanted visitors.

“These gates offer peace of mind and they’re attractive, so they enhance the look of the property,” Shick said. “You don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for security.” Although Pioneer Door has been in busi- ness for more than 20 years, the company is

Shick tries to provide his customers with the latest technology. For example, the company of- fers LiftMaster garage door openers and gate operators, which feature MyQ accessories.

you are, then close it.”

MyQ also serves as a security system by alerting users whenever their garage door or gate has been opened by someone else, whether it’s an intruder or a teenager attempt- ing to sneak in past curfew.

“A lot more people are requesting MyQ.

That’s the new hot thing,” Shick said. “People are seeing the ads for it and realizing the advan- tages. It is a nice safety feature.”

As always, Pioneer Door continues to provide services within about a 30-mile radius of its Oxford headquarters. “Of course, we handle all of Oxford and Orion, but we also go to Troy, Rochester, Waterford and Clarkston,” Shick said. “We’ve got a good reputation and we’re often the first one people call when their garage door is broken or they want to install a new one.” Folks looking to make a stylish statement with their ga- rage door will be pleased to know that Pioneer carries

Raynor Overhead Door’s new opticolor doors line available in 1,800 different colors. “It’s for people who want their garage door to match their gutters or parts of their house,” Shick said. “The doors are all pre- painted at the factory. Whatever you want,

they’ll paint any color. They’re all pretty rea- sonable as far as cost.”

For customers concerned about energy efficiency and good value, Pioneer Door of- fers Haas insulated garage doors. “They have the highest R-value and the best construction,” Greg said. “They help keep heating costs down if someone has a heated garage or a room above their garage. They have a lifetime warranty. They won’t delaminate or rust.”

Pioneer Door is one of only three dealers in the entire state of Michigan to carry the Richards-Wilcox line of premium residential garage doors. “We’re the only dealer in southeastern Michigan,” Shick said. “They offer an outstanding product in terms of qual- ity, durability and appearance.” Richards-Wilcox offers a variety of popu- lar Carriage House-style doors, but, accord- ing to Shick, the real star of the show are the steel doors overlaid with real wood slats. “They combine the look and feel of genu- ine wood with the insulation factor offered by a steel door,” he said.

Pioneer Door is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. Free estimates on new garage doors are available to homeowners. For more information, please call (248) 628- 6230 or visit the company on-line at Don’t forget to check them out on Facebook, too.
