A Family Business
Mike’s Garage Doors is a family business, locally owned by Mike and Lynn Pruim and based in Elizabeth, Colorado. Mike’s background is in the construction business; he is a native of Denver, and raised his family in the Denver area. Lynn moved to the area in 1992 and met and married Mike in 1996. They started Mike’s Garage Doors in 2001, and the company has been a member of Tom Martino’s ReferralList and Gold Star member of the BBB for 13 years since they launched the business.
“We pride ourselves on customer service,” says Lynn Pruim. “We are a big enough company to handle large projects, but a small enough company to really care about our customers and bring that personal touch.”
Lynn is often able to help repeat customers with just a quick phone call. “I’ll get calls about a garage door not closing correctly, and can usually tell over the phone if it’s something really simple, like a photo eye sensor that just needs to be wiped clean,” she says. By saving the customer time and money, Mike’s Garage Doors has built a solid reputation and an extremely loyal customer base. When they have time away from the business, Mike and Lynn enjoy RV road trips in the summer, and cheering for the Denver Broncos in the fall and winter. They also enjoy sponsoring the Douglas and Elbert County Livestock Association, and sponsoring school events for the Elizabeth and Kiowa school districts. Eventually, the company will pass to their daughter and son-in-law, keeping the family business going.
