As part of our ongoing "Getting to Know Your Local Businesses" series, this week we sat down with Gary Combs of Agape Garage Doors, LLC.

Tell us a bit about your business: What does your business offer, and how long have you been around?
Since 1989, we’ve been at the same Humble location, repairing and installing garage doors for residential and commercial properties. We are a family-owned and operated company with four qualified service technicians and two installers. We service all brands of garage doors and openers, Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm.  

In the past few years, we've experienced phenomenal growth because of our dedication to customer service and our reputation of providing quality products at affordable prices. We've completed contracts on every size project from single doors to thirty bay warehouses, entire neighborhoods and multifamily residences. Experts for all garage door needs, we focus on quickly repairing broken springs and cables, doors that are out of track and addressing noisy openers.

How did you decide to get involved in this line of work?
I accidentally stumbled into garage door maintenance and installations after working 15 years as a paint contractor.
I went to work at a company that offered both painting services and door installations and started working on the install side. I loved the install side and decided to start this garage door business with my partners.

One of my partners, Phil Rogers, manages all the commercial installations and repairs. He been with Agape for 21 years and has over 30 years in the door business. My daughter, Nicole Miller, is the brains of the operations.

Tell us a couple things you are proud of about your business. What are you known for? What separates you from the competition?
I’m most proud that we are a Christian-based company that provides superior customer service with honesty and integrity as a witness to God’s love.

What is your favorite part of running this business?
Meeting and building relationships with local community members is my favorite part. I love getting to know people and lifting their spirits.

I also serve as the Praise and Worship leader at Sheldon Baptist Church in Sheldon, Texas, and have run another ministry for the past 10 years that is based in The Woodlands. Through song, testimony and meal offerings, we serve seniors and those in prisons or halfway houses in our ministry; our focus is on stopping the addiction epidemic.

After being a terrible alcoholic for years and now being sober for 32 years, I am living proof that there is life after addiction.

Who is your ideal customer/client? Who do you serve best?
Our ideal customer is a homeowner or small business who needs their garage doors repaired or installed with high quality workmanship at a fair price with same day service, or close to it, for emergency response. You can contact us any time by phone or through Facebook.

Is there any other information you'd like your potential customers/clients to know about your business?
We are completely focused on our local community including Humble, Kingwood, Fall Creek and Summerwood. We are very active with our neighbors.

Along with members of Lakeside Methodist Church, we rendered aid during the recent hurricane. After the hurricane, we dropped our prices and helped our neighbors get their properties restored. Over the years, we’ve also provided assistance during other local natural disasters.

How do you see your business growing and improving over the next couple of years?
We will continue to grow with the Humble/Kingwood area, helping with ANY garage service or installation that is needed.
