Garage Door and Opener Replacement
“Our 60 year old garage door had a broken hinge and needed to be replaced. We solicited four bids for the project. Cal-Western, and John, impressed us with no-nonsense and a very fair bid. A week later our new door and opener were installed. John was thorough, efficient, honest, and cleared away all old material (even the sawdust!). I give Cal-Western Overhead Garage Doors my highest recommendation and would use them again in a heartbeat.”

New Overhead Door and Opener
“Just bought a home, the garage door was rusty and insulation falling apart. The garage opener was antique Sears with only 1 remote to share between my wife and I.
So I call Cal-Western and John was there to save the day. He was no less than great from start to finish. Provided me with a super fair quote for a new door AND a new opener during his free estimate visit, so much so, I said let’s proceed right then and there.
2 weeks later he gives me a shout saying the door I chose was in and if I was available for a next day install. Heck yeah! Install was quick, area was clean post work and my wife and I each can open the garage without sharing.
John and Cal-Western is now a permanent fixture in my contacts for garage related needs and to refer when friends and family ask for a recommendation on a garage door guy! Thank you so much again John!”

Overhead Door Repair
“John Chapman came to my house and bing bang boom he was done. He fixed everything, clearly explained what had gone wrong, and went on his way! I absolutely positively recommend CAL-Western Overhead.”

Garage Door Not Closing
“My garage door was not closing all of the time. It seemed like it was occasionally getting stuck. I called John and he retighten the springs and fixed some of the track, but told me that it was the opener that was the issue and not the springs. The door worked fine for the next two days and the same issue came back. I called John and said “when can you install another opener”. John installed the opener. A month later and the door is working like a charm. John is very professional, works efficiently and his pricing is very fair. I strongly recommend his services. Thank you John.”

Garage Door Replacement
We are so happy we chose Cal-Western to replace our garage door. Thank you, John!! John was so easy to work with, his pricing was competitive, he was friendly and completed the job in the quoted timeframe. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to our friends and family.

Overhead Door and Opener Service
“Had the pleasure of meeting John and having him service my door and assist with activating a new remote. Absolutely great experience!”

New Garage Door
Fantastic service and the best price I could find. I got three different estimates, and I’m so glad I went with Cal Western doors. We updated our old garage door to a modern three panel carriage style look and we absolutely love it. I don’t write reviews very often I’m writing this one voluntarily because they deserve all five stars and you should definitely check them out.

New Door Opener
Several years ago John replaced an old garage door at our house and was willing to work around the other construction we had going on at the time (I made things complicated for him) and he recently came back and installed a new opener. He is a super nice guy, responded quickly, and his work is top-notch. In both cases I was shocked by the bill–super affordable!

Overhead Door Load Spring Replacement
“Excellent service. Change the load springs on my overhead garage door in no time at all. John’s adjustment to the springs were correct, but my garage door wouldn’t close all the way and would re-open. Called John and he came back to take a look and adjusted my garage door opener with no additional charge. Very nice guy. I totally recommend John for your garage door needs.”

Door Opener Repair
One of our automatic garage door openers malfunctioned. We gave Cal-Western a call based upon Yelp reviews, and John provided us with great communication and fast professional service.

Garage Door Maintenance and Repair
“I’ve had them out a bunch of times to the house to fix various issues with our garage doors.
This past time, the tech saved me a ton of money by performing a simple repair, while the competition wanted to replace a door section for 6x as much.
What a mess that would have been. The other company misidentified the door manufacturer too so the part wouldn’t have worked.
Try these guys out. I like ’em.”
David W., Ventura – via Yelp, July 2019
“My garage door broke yesterday evening and I contact Cal-Western Overhead immediately via Yelp/email to get a quote and a possible appointment. Not even 10-15 minutes later, I get a phone call from John at Cal-Western Overhead. He was very nice and was very knowledgeable. He said he could fix it the next day and the price was very reasonable. Today, he came and fixed my garage. He was quick and did a great job. He even fixed another part on my garage that he noticed was not working right and replaced it free of charge. I really recommend this business with any of your garage repair needs. They are great!!!!”

“If you are looking for new doors or maintenance on your existing garage doors, look no further than John from Cal Western Overhead Doors. John was referred to us by another customer and installed a beautiful glass garage door and another garage door that we actually used in our main house. John was reliable, friendly and the best price in town. My wife and I both agree we can not think of a single thing John could have done to make us any happier. Keep up the great work John and thanks for making two more very satisfied customers!!!”
Gideon D., Ventura – via Yelp, January 2017
“I called Cal Western based on all the good Yelp reviews and John the owner was great. The overhead spring had broken. He had the best price. He showed up on at our scheduled appointment. He didn’t have the part but he ordered it on Sat and he fixed it by that Monday like he said he would. He lubed and adjusted the garage door opener and it works like new. I would call John at Cal Western Overhead door again for my garage door needs.”

“Came home from work on a Saturday morning, to find that my garage door was broken. Made some calls and headed to the beach with the family, as originally planned. John from Cal-Western Overhead Garage Door returned my voicemail in a timely manner, and spoke to me over the phone to diagnose the problem. Once we figured out I needed the springs replaced, he gave me an out-the-door price and said he could be there by 5:30pm (keep in mind, this was close to 4pm ON A SATURDAY). I was pleasantly surprised that he could come out so quickly on a weekend and for an extremely reasonable price! (I had been quoted more than double that by someone else earlier, because it was weekend after hours rates). End result: door fixed and happy customer. Thank you, John!”
John H., Inglewood – via Yelp, March 2015
“I am a busy home repair contractor in Ventura who knows nothing about automatic garage door openers and rollup garage doors. I called John on a Monday morning and we set up an appointment within 2 hours. He showed up on time, made one small adjustment, gave me lots of advice on lubing and adjusting the door and only charged me $29 for a trip fee. What a great guy and what great service! As a contractor, I come across flaky service people all the time! I can’t recommend John and Cal Western overhead door highly enough, the service industry needs more people like him”
Scott G., Ventura – via Yelp, January 2014
“Don’t waste your time looking for garage door services all over town. This is the company to do business with. John the owner replied quickly to my email for a estimate he honored the time to the minute and gave me good advice regarding replacing two of my old garage doors. Under promised and over delivered that should say it all. The garage doors look great, there affordable and frankly John takes the usual pain with dealing with contractors away by providing old school service. I highly recommend his company and will refer many people to him. Thank you John for the awesome doors at a great price.”
Viken C., Oxnard – via Yelp, September 2013
“Great honest service. I called Cal-Western Overhead based on the Yelp reviews only. I got the owner John. First he gave me some helpful hints over the phone to try and see if my garage door opener could be fixed. When it did not work he came out the next day. Turned out it just needed to be adjusted and lubed. I also had a broken garage door opener (clicker) and he had an extra one with him and he gave it to me free. All this for the price of a service call. He also said that if the unit started acting up again and we ended up having to replace it due to a bad circuit board (i.e. unit 13 years old) he would do so and credit the service call fee to the replacement bill. I highly recommend this company. He could have taken advantage of our lack of knowledge, but did not.
Thanks John keep up the good service.”
David L., Ojai – via Yelp, November 2012
“John, the owner, came over right away to evaluate our broken garage door. We were expecting the worst and assumed we would have to replace it. So, we were thrilled when John said he could repair it for 1/5 of the cost of a new one. When I called, he came within 1 hour to evaluate it. Then he arrived the next day and repaired it. I was elated with how quickly the job was done for a reasonable price.
I felt I could trust John because he did not try to pressure us into getting a new door and spending more than we needed to and seemed really honest about our options. I agree with the other review about good, old fashioned service!”
Nani O., Ventura – via Yelp, October 2011
“Excellent Service!! Great Price!! Wow, being female and all I researched this before making any decisions. I called several places in Ventura to fix my broken garage door torsion springs. One was broken but it’s better to fix both as they come in pairs. Depending on the size and weight of your door, will depend on your price. I called several places in Ventura and everyone wanted $100.00 or more over the price I got from Cal Western. The internet told me how much a pair of springs cost, and how long it would take to repair. So I already knew if I was going to get ripped off or not. John from Cal Western did same day service and it took him less than 20 minutes to replace both torsion springs. I highly recommend Cal Western Overhead Garage Doors for your service!”

“John, Thank you for your craftsmanship and ethics. It’s refreshing and appreciated.”
Maureen L. Ventura
“Dear John, A neighbor from around the corner”…”knocked on our door today to ask about the installer of our new garage doors. I had no hesitation in giving you high marks for the installation and recommended her to you. She said she had a single door for replacement. This incident just reminded me to write to thank you for a job well done, especially for the framing around the two doors to keep dust and rain out, which was a problem with the old wooden doors. We appreciate your work and have no hesitation in recommending you to others.”
Frank D. Ojai, September 2009
“Attn: John, This is a letter of appreciation and can be used as a testimonial when you wish to “brag about satisfied customers”. You gave me a very clear explanation of what we needed to replace our three garage doors. You explained which doors, which motors and did not even let me know about all of the special extras that came with them (a very pleasant surprise!). You spelled out everything clearly and accurately on the written estimate and when you did the work, there were no extras or change order surprises. We have now been using the doors for over one month and everything is working just fine. And this letter I have written to you was unsolicited by you. Thank you again for running your business the way it should be run.”
Joe G. Somis, September 2007
“John, You are an honorable man. Thank you for the time you took so that I could get my car out of the garage. And thank you for giving me the best deal you could to replace the garage door. Your professional and personal integrity is much appreciated. My best wishes to you and your family for a happy healthy prosperous and fulfilling 2006.”
Linda R., 2006
