We were very lucky when we found your company. We had called every garage door company around, in our area in Alabama, looking for a walk thru to no avail, then we found Mr. Gaudet and WalkThru Garage Doors on the internet. Mr Gaudet walked us through every step from start to delivery. We contacted Posten's Overhead Door Company in Pinson Alabama and they sent an installer out to install the door. The installer was able to get the door up with no problems, even though it was the first walk thru door he had ever installed. the door looks and fits great. We are 100% satisfaied with our door and your product!
I never thought this was possible and then I found WalkThru Garage Doors. My experience with WalkThru Garage Doors because of Germain Gaudet was exceptional. It is real important to not only receive a finished product, but I find that it is a real value when a company is willing to educate the consumer through each step that is being taken. I am now looking into 2 doors for our new home and have already had the privilege of a genuine conversation to help steer our direction with Germain. Wow… if only all businesses cared about their customers in the same fashion!

I found Walk Thru Garage Doors on the internet and really lucked out! This company is fantastic. They are responsive, knowledgable and produce a wonderful product.
I was able to order my new garage door with a "man door" and also a doggy door. (Walk Thru helped me select the proper dog door from a company in Colorado and installed it with no problem. )The quality of the man door was "the best he has seen" according to my installer. Altogether, the ordering, shipping and installation process turned out to be a breeze.
I would totally recommend Walk Thru Garage Doors to anyone with a requirement for this function in a residential application. Laura Shannon, Owner www.HeatherHillFarm.com
It was a tremendously affirming experience to source a Walk Thru door from you. The design and vision of the product is only matched by the care and personal attention you offer to the customer, it's all a truly exceptional communicative and supportive process at every stage.
This door is a 3-panel 9ft wide and installed in a common construction block style home. It is one of the first of its kind to be installed in Florida, and causes favorable comment and interest. It was custom-built to the precise measurements we supplied, delivered as promised and installation was straightforward.
It is the best investment we made to this house as it provides a stylish (and well-insulated - which is just as important as in Canada!) solution to the problem of a garage that is presently in use as a work/storage room. Now the space can be considered as instantly convertible between garage and accommodation, preserving the amenity of both.
For our area we also needed a hurricane bracing kit on standby and jackshaft style lifter will complete the package by providing s space saving option to eliminate 'the third rail.'
We wish to thank Germain and all at the company for what they do and equally, the attentive way they do it. You can have confidence that all the similar reviews here are true and reflect an exceptional product and service.
Germain, sorry it's taken so long to get this to you. Here are some photos and a statement about the Walk Thru Garage Door I purchased, thanks again for your product and support, I'm extremely happy with it.
I had a predicament: my wife wouldn't back her car into the garage for fear of hitting the garage door or my car! We had a double car garage with a 16ft wide overhead door, plus a conventional walk through door into the garage, but we only ever parked one car inside - it was just too tight to get 2 modern wide cars in! So I started looking around for a solution. I came across Walk-Thru Garage Doors, it looked ideal. I got rid of the conventional door, which allowed me to open up the garage car entrance to 18ft, I bought and installed a fully insulated 18ft Walk-Thru Garage Door which now allows us to park both cars with ease and we still had the convenience of a pedestrian walk through door into the garage. Another added bonus is that the door is very well insulated and keeps the garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Thankyou Walk-Thru Garage Doors for your excellent well-made product which was delivered and your great customer support!
My mother moved into our inlaw suite in the lower half of our home, but we had no room to put a private enterance door beside the garage door that we had, than we found Walkthru doors Inc on line.I talked to Germain than we checked out the web site, decided on what door would suit our home, ordered the door, had the door installed without a problem and could not be happier with the Quality and workmanship of this door.
My wife found the Walk Thru Door on the internet. We were constantly opening and closing a noisy garage door that shook the entire house. We knew we needed to either have major construction or find a garage door with a door in it. There was no other way to get out the back of the house to visit our son and his family who were only 50 yards away. We found Germain Gaudet and his company, he assessed our needs, we gave the measurements, 6 weeks later he delivered the door personally. It was installed this week. Not only was it convenient, but with the insulation and the proper sizing it transformed our garage into a new room. We deeply appreciate the high quality of the door, the insulation makes a huge difference, and the walk thru door makes life much simpler and more pleasant. Thanks
Great product. On budget. Ahead of schedule. Those words are music to any contractors' ears. When we had the daunting task of providing (3) carriage-style garage doors for the construction of a carriage house in the historical preservation district of Evanston, Illinois, we turned to Germain and his team. Are we glad we did. The doors fulfilled the stringent criteria of the preservation committee, provided the required R-value and pleased the heck out of our client. And, oh by the way, the walk thru function incorporated in one of the doors works flawlessly. Our thanks to Germain and the people at Walk Thru Doors for being part of a successful project.
We are a residential general contractor in the Chicago area. On
a recent project we were presented with the challenge of replicating carriage-style garage doors on a coachhouse in a historical landmark district. Adding to this challenge was the fact that the first floor was to be a heated space and our client's request that one of the doors also serve as the entry to the space. We presented this situation to the team at WalkThru Garage Doors and they fabricated three doors that satisfied the Landmark Commission criteria of a wood exterior,
included a walk-thru door in one unit which made our client happy and provided us with doors that satisfied our insulation
and weather-sealing requirements. WalkThru Garage Doors completed their work for us on budget and ahead of schedule and in one project has earned a spot on our preferred vendor list.
We ordered a door sight unseen as a matter of fact it was the first door of its type that Germain had made. After many emails and photos of the space and style we decided to trust Germain and go for it.
NOT one bit of regret the door fits the space and architecture perfectly.
There is nothing to say except that the product is great looking and great quality AND the customer service is even better!!! The garage door with the pass door for a residential home is must have....and Gaudet is the place to deal with!! THANK YOU GERMAIN! I definitely made the right decision by dealing with you!
Firstly, Germain is not only an excellent salesman...but he stands by his product. Yes....the product is AMAZING. I previously had a garage door with a pass door that was constructed of wood. Over the years, the door was subjected to all the elements of weather - rain - humidity - snow etc. The door really took a beating and the pass door was giving me nothing but headaches. However, I love the convenience of the pass door. I did a lot of research - and found Gaudet Garage Door Co. - They make the garage door with a pass door that is constructed of double insulated steel. I absolutely love it. I wish I had known about this when I put the wood door in......I would have definitely went with the steel. It not only looks great....it functions beautifully. Nothing negative to say. Germain is great, the product is great, and this story has a very happy ending!!!! Thank you Germain!
This was the perfect solution for our garage-turned-playland. We wanted a door which could remain down most of the time to protect the kids and insulate, but still let in light and allow us to enjoy a beautiful view. The WalkThru door was the perfect fit. After several communications with the owner, who answered all my questions, I made a deposit. Soon thereafter, I found out I was moving and had to pull the order. WalkThru Door was very understanding and provided a full refund. I would definitely recommend them as a quality and ethical company with a great product.
When I was converting a garage bay into a studio, I scoured the internet looking for the "perfect" walkthru door.
As I live in snow country, where temperatures can drop to -15 F in the winter and climb to 85 F in the summer , I needed a door that would keep the interior warm and comfortable; not to hot and not to cold.
I also wanted a stylish, easily operable and understated door that would compliment my home and open as a garage door or as a walkthru. It also had to have windows to keep the cold in the winter and and heat out in the summer.
After much searching on the internet, phone and word-of-mouth, I found Germain Gaudet who owns Walkthru Garage Doos. Since I live in California and Walkthru is in Canada, we talked on the phone and e-mailed pictures back and forth until we had exactly the door I was looking for.
After a hot summer and a heavy Sierra Nevada winter (with temperatures in the minus degrees for over a 10 day stretch) I am pleased to report that I am VERY pleased with the performance and functionality of this door.
It offers such good insulation that I barely had to turn the heat on in the winter and was kept cool (without air conditioning) in the summer.
The self-installation was easy and only took a couple of hours.
Germain and the rest of the Walkthru Garage Door Team were very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Every question was answered happily and in detail that I could understand. My door arrived on time exactly as Germain said it would.
If you're looking for a no-hassle, functional, attractive walkthru garage door to fit any need, you have found THE place to supply it!
When it was time to replace my two garage doors, I was looking for something a little different. You See...I was always opening and closing my garage door to walk through the garage(didn't matter if the car was in there or not). So I asked around and was told Gaudet Aluminum walk thru garage doors was the place to go. After talking to Germain Gaudet,I was convinced a walk thru door was the right choice for me...Once my new garage doors were installed...All the neighbors would come over and comment on the quality and workmanship, not to mention ..."What a great idea" ... I Love my walk thru door ....Thanks Germain !!!
I had some odd measurements and very low ceiling height to deal with.Ifound Walk Thru on the web and called Germain.he was very helpful and I ordered a door that was a perfect fit and quality.I am very pleased with my purchase. Harrolds Auto Body, Vandergrift PA. USA
My WalkThru door is exactly what I wanted and expected. I live in a coastal area of Texas, where my home is on raised pilings. The Cars are parked underneath the home. The walkthru door allowed me to enclose the "garage bays" under my house without compromising a bay for a front door. The walkthru gives me the best of both worlds - a front door and a garage bay for one of our vehicles. Working with Germain Gaudet was a pleasure. I struggled with contractor concerns on meeting Texas windstorm requirements for coastal areas, but Germain was with me every step of the way. He went out of his way to find a manufacturer in Florida that sold braces to help protect garage doors from hurricane force winds. He modified the doors to work with the braces and shipped everything right to my door. My contractor was impressed with the quality of the door and packing. I use the door every day and just love it! I would recommend this door and Germain Gaudet to anyone in Texas, or anywhere else for that matter!
My Walkthru door was installed almost a year ago and I do not know how I managed without it. I use it several times every day, have not lifted the large doors more than once or twice since I got the Walkthru. The quality of the doors is outstanding. People who visit comment on how great they look. The insulation helps to maintain a more comfortable garage temperature than before. The large windows changed the garage from a dungeon to bright and useful. In addition to a fantastic product, Germain Gaudet provides wonderful customer service, answers questions in detail about the Walkthru options, payment policy and delivery schedule. I wish he had other products I could add to my house as dealing with him was such a pleasure.
The WalkThru Garage Door we purchased is an ideal solution for our house. We park in the rear of the house and either had to walk to the front, or up a flight and a half of stairs to get into the house. The WalkThru now allows us to use the Garage as the main way into and out of the house. The Door we ordered fits perfect, was shipped on time and works as promised. We highly recommend Gaudet's if you are looking for a WalkThru Garage door.
