Welcome to LESTER'S GARAGE DOORS in Gainesville, Florida.


It's time to fix up your home! Did you know that your garage door is a key component in protecting your house from high wind damage? 


If your garage door is not strong enough to hold up to strong winds, it can blow in. Once that happens, the whole roof can blow off! See the TV20 News story about preparing your garage door for strong winds.
