Northgate Garage Company Garage DoorsWhy do well known companies like La Tortilla Factory, Kendall Jackson, McIntosh Builders, Alvarado Bakery and Fountaingrove Golf and Country Club as well as homeowners like Diane G of Cotati do business with the Northgate Company? Because of their history, the values instilled by owner, John Higgins and a hard working staff that completes every garage door installation on time with the highest degree of customer satisfaction.


“We needed to replace 2 old, heavy, wooden garage doors with steel and foam core doors and all that goes with it. The estimator wrote up the order saying the doors were in stock and we should hear from them shortly and they were installed the next day. Superb work, clean, efficient, with no mess, and they hauled the old doors away. What a difference…the new doors, motor and lights work effortlessly. We choose solid panels without windows as we needed the insulation more than the light. A big plus was the almond color which matched the house so well we did not have to paint. After years of feeling the wind blow around our old doors, it’s remarkable how warm the garage is now. The price for everything was reasonable and the service outstanding. I would tell all my friends to do business with this company.”
