Master Garage Door Company Celebrates Two Decades of Service

In November, Master Garage Door Company celebrated 20 years of service.
“It’s been an incredible journey,” said Steve Manning, owner of Master Garage Door. “When we started, we wanted our business to be known for honest, trustworthy service, and that’s carried us through all these years. We are grateful for our customers and our community”

Manning, along with his wife, Tawnie Manning, founded their family business in Gibsonton in 1997. Master Garage Door relocated to Brandon in 1998. Master Garage Door operates in Hillsborough County. They sell and repair garage doors and related accessories, such as springs and garage door openers . They respond to both routine and emergency service calls.

“Most people don’t often think about their garage door systems. It’s easy to take them for granted. But all that changes immediately when there’s a problem with the system. When people are unable to use their cars or enter or secure their homes through their garages, it’s a major problem,” said Steve Manning.

“Garage door systems are more than just conveniences — they’re important parts of daily life,” said Tawnie Manning. “We love providing our community with the support and services needed to keep their homes and businesses functioning.”
