When looking to remake your garage or begin a new installation, Martin Garage Doors Hawaii can take care of it for you with some of the best preparation and experience in Hawaii.

Martin Garage Doors Hawaii “started out as Akamai Painting in 1978, then contracted with Sears in 1984 to do house painting and later, garage doors,” stated Claude Thompson, 70, president, CEO, and the original owner of the company. “In 1995, after Sears got out of the home improvement business, we became known as Martin Garage Doors Hawaii.”

Customers new to Martin Garage Doors Hawaii will find comfort in their free pre-sales and pre-installation inspections. There are performed to make certain there is sufficient clearance for doors and assess whether doors will need modification. Doors are made of premium quality aluminum, copper, or steel.

Garage doors are one of many home improvement products Thompson’s company offers. “At one point we had multiple companies in a variety of specialties, such as painting, roofing, waterproofing, solar, garage doors,” explained Thompson. “Now we’re mainly concentrating on painting, carport enclosures, and garage doors.”

Martin Garage Doors Hawaii is the sole distributor of Salt Lake City, Utah’s Martin Garage Doors in the state, which Thompson describes as “the finest and safest garage doors, period. No comparison.” The company has had its general contracting license since 1984, with dealers on Kauai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu, and the Big Island. All parts have a limited lifetime warranty.

Born and raised in Hawaii, six year old Thompson moved with his father to California, who was formerly enlisted in the Army Air Corps, and his mother from Pepeekeo on the Big Island. With a concentration in aeronautical engineering, Thompson became interested in the home improvement field around his 30s, coming back to Hawaii to assist his father in building his Sunset Beach retirement home.

“I enjoy engaging with customers,” responded Thompson when asked what he enjoyed most about his job, “and being able to make a positive impact on their lifestyles and on their properties. The right garage door will not only enhance your home’s beauty, but also its value.”

From custom garage doors, vents with screens, windows or screens on doors, pet doors, and even mail slots, “we’ve done it all,” claimed Thompson. “We can even adapt to minimal ‘header’ space above the inside of your door with a low headroom adapter kit. Once we had a house in Manoa built on a slope, so a standard door wouldn’t fit. What we did to solve that problem was to also slope the garage door.”
