Smokey's Garage Door » About


Smokey’s Garage Door is a family-owned and operated local garage door company providing service, repairs, and installation on all brands of garage doors, springs, and openers since 1982. We value honesty and will provide you with only the highest quality products, competitive prices, and professional assistance— whether we’re making the repair or you’re fixing it yourself.


Who is Smokey?

Smokey entered the garage door business after he retired from 20 years as a US Air Force fighter pilot (call sign: SMOKEY) in 1974. Fast forward to the mid-80s, Smokey decided to start his own door business. Now, his son, Kevin Pettiette, runs the family-owned business.


Chosen as Mayor’s Business of the Week
Because of the foundation set forth by Smokey, this local garage door business has become a respected and trusted business in the Glendale and Phoenix communities.
