Sean was brilliant from the word go. From my initial contact with him by telephone, to the end of the job, and payment, he was kind, courteous and kept me informed of everything I needed to know.

Repair of electrics to garage door
Friendly, polite, honest and efficient service. After getting a quote from another garage door repairer and told we would need replace the unit , we thought we'd get a second quote, and glad we did. Sean identified the problem with an internal fuse, repaired the unit, serviced the door and all in under an hour our garage door was fixed. We were very happy with the outcome and highly recommend Empire doors.

The removal of an old up and over manual garage door and fitting of a new electric roller door.
Empire is a one man band and as far as I am concerned Mr Sean Thomas played all the right notes in tune. He was courteous and helpful from the start, explaining in full all of the features and what could go wrong if at all. On the day of fitting Mr Thomas had completed the work in no time at all and the door has been grand operating well since. He told me what maintenance was required and how to clean it. I have no hesitation in recommending him and the Company to all. An excellent job thank you Empire and Mr S Thomas.
